Fast paced environment
A typical is pretty busy, between getting the food prep done for the day and taking orders, there is always something to do, whether it was cleaning or preparing food items for the following day.
I have learned a great deal about how to speak to people, as well as, organizational skills because of the amount of preparation required in one day.
I would say the hardest part of the job is when we are short people for the day, and a person would have to handle several stations at once while preparing food items to keep that station stoked. The other hardest part of the job is the lack of support from the management team. Instead of jumping in and helping when they see a person struggling, they continue what they are doing and act as if they see nothing.
Not everything is bad in the job. The most enjoyable part of it for me, is cooking the food. Especially when we get new menu items every few months.
free meals, fairly good benefits, always get 40 hours a week, friendly co-workers
Sometimes no breaks, management not supportive of staff, not properly staffed (understaffed 95% of the time)
