Busy yet organized work environment with nice co workers and a great place to work.
Food Runner/Host (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – February 23, 2016
A typical day at Umami Burger was tough yet effective. I learned new things everyday, such as how food presentation plays a role in the ultimate experience of the customer, how to greet the customer, and how to handle any problems that would come up. The management was always spot on, and had a good handle on the employees. The schedule always came out on time if not early, which gave the employees a chance to find coverage if needed. There was constant positive affirmation working with my co workers at Umami Burger, along with constructive criticism that helped shape my role as a food runner/host. I would say the hardest part of my job was keeping track of our customers while I was hosting, but in the end I always made sure the customer had a nice experience and seated them as soon as humanly possible. The most enjoyable part of my job was witnessing the customers' reaction when I placed the food in front of them, it was always a positive feeling when you see the customers' excitement.
