Waitress/Hostess (Former Employee) – Spanish Fort, AL – May 2, 2016
A typical work day includes opening the restaurant and preparing it for daily guests. Some tasks may include: sauce preparation, brewing tea and coffee, rolling silverware, setting up chairs, straightening up your serving station for your shift, and handling any and all transactions between yourself and the guest and returning money owed to the restaurant at the end of your shift. Co-workers are great in this environment, management encourages 'zone buddy's' (employees with sections near each other) to keep drinks filled and other simple tasks to make sure guests are 100% satisfied. I had the pleasure of working with and meeting great people who I still connect with outside of work. The management are dedicated to the overall success of the employees and the restaurant and will do anything that needs to be done. For example, during a busy shift our kitchen got backed up and the hostesses has to stop seating tables even though there were tables available. The general manager proceeded to go into the kitchen to help speed up ticket times to keep the night slowing smoothly. Things like that is what makes working at Bluegill amazing.
