As a server, management does not offer enough support to the servers or BOH staff. I am typically the only server and one (occasionally two) BOH cook/drive thru crew member. No one to make Shakes, Servers end up making all the shakes, cleaning the entire restaurant: including dishes and barhrooms. I finally quit when they expected me to be the only Server, and work drive-thru, and act as a hostess, run the cash register and make shakes, beg for food from the one cook that also had multiple “job requirements”. All of this meant the customers recieved slow service and I looked like a mess - trying to make shakes (and getting ice crem on my uniform) and wearing a drive thru headset and getting dish water spashed on my pants. My tips went from $10 a table to $1 or $2 a table as soon as I was required to put on a headset and work BOH & FOH.

I was hired to be a Server and my livelyhood depends on tips. Once the tips started to decline, I was just a fool making $2.13 an hour.

Management didn’t honor time off requests fully. Even if your day off was approved, they would often call you on your off day and ask you to come in. Understaffing is also an issue. Two, three servers on a holiday lunch rush led to multiple complaints and angry managers.

Not a good company to work for. This place is a complete joke. For, two years I put up with a lot of lazy people including the management staff.

I was fired without warning. I asked for 2 weeks off and when I came back they were giving me only 1 day a week. Soon enough my name was no longer in the roster.
