Relaxing on some days, frustrating on thursdays and weekends
Busser & Server (Former Employee) – Richardson, TX – April 7, 2018
A typical day consists of bussing tables, making sure guests receive their food accurately and quickly, and replenishing bread, coffee, tea, silverware, cups, and other necessities. Making sure bathrooms are clean and stocked every night, and many other duties.
A busser has the most work to do when closing, and often times you're scheduled by yourself, even when it gets busy. You're supposed to get out and finish closing by 10:30.
I've been having some slight trouble trying to get out on time and so usually I wouldn't finish closing until 11.
Based on one's luck and relationship with the coworkers one might get lucky enough to receive a small amount of help.
I've been stressed due to some life events and with not being able to receive fulltime - not to mention not getting a stable schedule in the first place, it's hard for me to cope.
The managers are ok, but I've been rudely compared to an elderly busser as means to "motivate me to do my job better".
Best part of the job is probably the decent food and desserts that are discounted.
difficult to take breaks, unstable schedules, appears that bussers can never be full time, managers letting people in 10-30 minutes after closing is the worst, etc.
