Pros: 1/2 off one meal per shift you would work, or a free meal every 1, 000 $ in sales you would make, & the fast cash
Cons: no raises, & sometimes u would just break even, if u made to much in tips, you wouldn't get a check for that bi-weekly pay period, and the pay hourly
A typical day at work would be, coming to work; change into the Tilted Kilt outfit. All girls for that shift would help do opening "things" (ex. cutting lemons, making coffee, putting the soda machines together, wiping off all tables, re-stocking caddies with ketchup, and mustard, etc.) All employees would meet up at the host stand to do a pre-shift. – more... And then would go about our typical serving/ waitressing for that shift.
What i learned in this kind of a work place was patience comes with time, and to be fast on your feet (literally). It taught me how to brainstorm with a short amount of time, and multi-tasking.
The Management was awesome, very involved, and supportive in the girls/ employees work during each shift.
My co-workers were always team players, never had an issue with any one of them, all very nice, and willing to give help when needed.
The hardest part of the job was probably dealing with "rude" guests/customers, & the long dbl shifts. But I worked through it, each and every time.
The most enjoyable part of the job was no matter what kind of a mood you were in, all the co-workers could make your day better, and put a smile on your face. And you were leaving with fast cash, each and every day. – less
