Fast paced working evironment with a supportive staff
Server (Former Employee) – Forest Grove, OR – July 17, 2018
A typical day at work is very busy, mostly during the summer months. Sometimes you will be running around like crazy trying to get orders from people and food and drinks to your tables. On the busiest days sometimes there is no winning with your customers and they will be somewhat disappointed mostly because Mcmenamins restaurants are not fast food restaurants and sometimes people expect that. Also it can be understaffed at times which makes it difficult to keep up with the flow of business.
Coworkers were enjoyable and the atmosphere with the property and the people made the work fun and interesting. Hot summer days were very difficult if you work outside, and that combined with the fast pace flow of business and overabundant amount of customers was probably the hardest part about the job. The most enjoyable parts of the job were the other employees and managers who were nice, understanding, and open to making the work as fun as possible, and the benefits that came with the job such as discounts on alcohol and other merchandise at the front desk and restaurants.
semi-free lunches, outdoor and indoor working areas, great staff, company discounts
sometimes stressful pace, sometimes short-staffed
