fun and helpful co-workers, lack of hour flexibility, poor management skills
Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Plainfield, IL – February 8, 2016
A typical day consisted of clocking in(waiting for a manager to sign off on it for 5-10 minutes), doing dishes while understaffed(only me dishwashing, there should be 2 people), some of the servers helping out when it's busy, closing.
I learned that there's a reason we were understaffed, and that's because the management was inefficient.
Most of the time, if you needed to talk to a manager they were off in some random place doing nothing, not in their office or helping out, just standing/sitting around.
My co-workers are what kept me there longer than I should've stayed, they'd always help out with washing pots when I was the only dishwasher scheduled and keep me motivated while i worked.
The hardest part of the job was that because I was usually the only dishwasher, I didn't leave work until 1 or 2 am, even though we closed at 10 on week days, 9 on sundays and 11 on saturdays.
The best part of the job were my co-workers, i knew some of them from school so they would talk to me and help out when they weren't too busy.
free salad, multiple breaks
non-flexible hours and working about double the hours i wanted
