Waitress/Cashier (Former Employee) – Fort Payne, AL – January 13, 2016
Like any place you have your good days and bad days. Management needs to be more concerned and focused on work that personal life. Co-workers are friendly, but like any other place you have some that aren't. Hardest part of the job is when you get sat 3 or more times in a row and you can't get caught up. Most enjoyable part is spending time with the friends you do have there and making money.
Line Server (Current Employee) – Fort Smith, AR – November 18, 2015
The job was monotonous, took up too much time, and didn't pay very well at all. The job itself wasn't too complicated, but at the same time wasn't enjoyable, the uniforms were made of thick material as well. The only good thing about them was the fact that I learned how to Multi-task on a larger scale than before, and was able to hone my memorization skills and quick writing came in handy. Overall it wasn't the best job, or the worst, it was just work.
Hostess/Waitress (Former Employee) – Murfreesboro, TN – July 2, 2015
This was a conventional hostess position, greeting customers, allotting customers to waitresses, ensuring waitresses fulfilled their duties and stocked the waitress station. It can be difficult to ensure waitresses complete their duties before leaving when they're trying to slip out without completing them and the management offered no help and still expected performance. The hardest part of the job was pleasing customers when the customer's requests exceed the restaurant's work practices. I enjoyed a position of authority and respect. This was also a conventional waitress position greeting customers, taking orders, serving food and drink, tending customer, bussing tables cleaning section and stocking waitress station. Customers can be pleasant or impossible. The management illegally changed my tip card records. Co-workers were mostly like a new group of friends. It was difficult during rush hour to keep tables bussed to accommodate more customers when bus boy never bussed my tables. It was nice to be able to be informatively helpful to out-of-town customers.
Free drinks while on duty
Working in a restaurant that needed to update the decor, being harassed by customers

I was a cashier. Now is under different ownership. Previous ownership was my only reason for quitting. Staff are very nice and loving. They will help you with anything you need. They will also be life long friends even after employment.
