Extremley stressful workplace.
Server/Busser/Food Runner (Former Employee) – Farmington, CT – July 15, 2018
What it's like:
As of recently, the servers bring drinks out first, and they go from table to table within 1 of 6 sections to take orders and serve them their food immediately after. When they are done, the servers bus their plates and have deserts brought out. As they leave, the servers strip their tables down to wipe them and reset them. This process normally extends beyond the two hour time frame because it is done by 6 people for 144 residents.
The kitchens are unclean and too hot, and co-workers often slack off making things much slower. The complaints never end from the residents and managers, and there is too much remembering to do regarding the complexity of orders as well as any other excessive requests. Suggestions are never heard, and promises are never kept. I applied here out of desperation and disliked every second I was there. The work you do here is worth much more than what they pay you. This job is only relatively fun if you are good friends with your co-workers in advance. Management is poor and lazy and they will pull you aside for things that aren't of importance. They prefer to hire nice people, although the nice people that work here struggle to handle the stress and can be subject to panic attacks.
Free meal if you work for a full day, easy hiring
Short breaks, complaining residents & managers, lazy co-workers, uncomfortable uniforms.
