Kind Residents But Poorly Managed
Server (Former Employee) – Tiverton, RI – April 11, 2018
Coworkers are in the same boat, so they seem to get along just fine. There are a couple of managers who are almost always there. When a main manager is not there, another server takes over as a closer. Most closers do the same amount of work, but a couple of them, one who is a closer more often than not, assigns the work and the tables to the rest of the servers while taking no tables themself. There is one closer who appears to assign jobs based on whether or not they like you. Sometimes you can get mixed messages from management and the closers, which is difficult to deal with since the closer is in charge for the night, so you have to listen to them, but management is in charge when they are there and are told about everything that happens, so you have to listen to them, too. It can get stressful trying to juggle the conflicting requests and rules. Almost all of the residents are nice, though of course there are a few who cause trouble; however, the other residents outweigh the bad ones. The shifts are typically around three hours long, with an hour or two between if you are scheduled for more than one that day. I loved my job, but I did not like the way it was managed. I would not recommend working here unless you have no other options.
