Pros: very close to home. and there was a vision
Cons: the small town staff and family, and insurance
opening and closing the store, food orders scheduling P&Ls any special for the day or week, Hiring and training of servers, back of house and bartenders, liquor sales any needs of the day, the first thing I learned was Indiana health department laws, it was the first time I encountered the health department in any state first hand but all went well and I learned a lot, even though I took the course it was its different when they come in, other management was few, I only worked there one year, although I had other store managers who helped me out a lot. Staffed with original employees not so good, it was a restaurant that took over another and kept all the original employees and it was a very small town, they didn't like change, and thought the supervisor who was there was going to be the general manager and when it didn't happen and I came in, they made it hard on me at every turn. I did make changes and for the good, I did have employees that worked with me and not against and the Company was a really good company and growing, but at that time I knew this store was not for me, I really liked my bosses and the owners, and it was close to home. what I loved about the job was the company spirit, and the vision that did eventually come about.
