Beyond Bread took a chance on me and agreed to judge me on my performance and not past mistakes. The managers are professional, the product is excellent, and the atmosphere is fun and comfortable.
A typical day includes working as a cashier, barista, bartender, server, or even catering delivery driver. Additionally, I supervise several front of the house employees, resolve guest complaints, and train new employees. I truly enjoy this.
The hardest part of the job is being on my feet for 8 hours at time and continuing to wait on guests in a super-high volume restaurant, where high quality without sacrificing great service is required. Some days, I literally serve over 300 guests and only get a 15 minute break throughout an entire shift.
Though I thoroughly enjoy working at BB and love my coworkers and regular guests, there is a ceiling to career advancement and the wages are low. I am only leaving BB to work in the legal field as a paralegal/legal assistant.
Flexible work schedule, great co workers, excellent product.
Low wages, minimal opportunity for advancement
