Server / Bartender (Former Employee) – Massachusetts – November 21, 2017
This job allowed me to learn a lot about serving, food and beverage, however they take all the fun out of working in the restaurant industry. They treat their employees pretty terribly, despite the fact that there are people who work there for decades. Glad to have it on my resume, but THRILLED i am OUT of that place.
Hostess (Former Employee) – Cambridge, MA – May 18, 2019
Typical day required cleaning windows, confirming reservations, and greeting customers. I learned how to multitask and build communication and problem-solving skills with managers and waiters in order to try and create a calm environment for when the restaurant became extremely busy. The workplace culture did need some work due to the fact that the restaurant was under new management and that built a lot of confusion on how the restaurant would be run. The hardest part was dealing with a stressful workplace but in order to not become overwhelmed, I would take a quick break (If possible usually hard to do). I enjoyed eating with co-workers before opening and closing.
