SO MUCH WORK for little pay.
Back up/Dishwasher/carver (Current Employee) – Elgin, IL – October 15, 2018
I can go on and on about why the pay isnt worth it but to sum it up unless your a manager the job isnt worth it you can climb all you want but you will struggle i promise. I started at dishwasher and learned back-up, prep, carver, and basic serving knowledge. I am pretty much a manager without a red shirt. The job wouldnt suck if the managers actually helped, whenever we are busy the managers leave everything to you while they sit in the office and act like they are having a stressfull day. In my eyes managers are nothing but servers wearing red shirts because thats all they do. I have worked at boston market for about a year and I have recieved help only 1 time and that was on my first day of the job. I started off putting in alot of extra work, (helping others when they are struggling, welcoming customers, being happy and acting like i enjoy the job, stay an extra hour to catch up the next worker, not take breaks to keep the smooth flow going.) over time I realized I dont gain anything from doing this my pay is still garbage, no body helps me in return, and I go home in pain and drenched with sweat. Now I do take breaks, dont help others, keep a blank face on the whole day, greeting isnt my job im just a chef right? I leave exactly when im done ( i dont stay late to help people anymore) and dont work at 100% probably at about 65%. Overall this place is a very selfish, High demand, Very low reward work place.
selfish workers, Lazy managers, Poor pay
