I've gotten 0 call backs with over 50 applications done. It's taxing.

No matter where you work - at an Office, Restaurant, Park, Hospital, and obviously, at Home - you or your coworkers probably have your own #1 preferred crutch, to treat yourselves with, throughout the workday! 🍫🍿🥤🍱 🥪 🍬

There are enough cliche jokes out there about work and coffee as an essential pair, to bore us for a lifetime! 😮‍💨 ☕️ 😆 That doesn’t mean folks don’t still guzzle it down by the gallon to make it through the workday! As a society we are most likely addicted to caffeine more than ever before, in all of human history! 🤤 ☕️ 🫖

This is going to sound crazy, but I don’t ever consume caffeinated things, and haven’t for years. I did when I was younger, but the older I get, the less I like how caffeine makes me feel, and affects my sleep patterns. So I don’t personally drink caffeinated coffee - even decaf is too strong for me! I miss the flavor of coffee soooo much! I even had a coffee flavored greek yogurt this morning, as a dupe for a latte! And it’s one of my favorite Ice Cream Flavors!! 🥄 🍨 ✨🍦✨ ☕️ 🥄

Working in a restaurant definitely has some upsides, and nonstop access to a 🥤 free soda fountain or soda gun, 🥤can sometimes be one of them. Since I don’t drink coffee, my work drink of choice was usually Club Soda with a Splash of Lemonade, in the days before flavored sparkling water was all the rage! Now I’m usually drinking a Spindrift Sparking Water or more budget friendly sparkling water, and plain water when I’m working at the park. ☀️ 🍓 🫗 🍋 🥤 🫐

In my own experience, it seems like most Restaurant Workers wouldn’t go an hour without a caffeinated beverage to get them through the shift, empty energy drink cans can be found all over the Front AND Back of the House!! 😅😂

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO LEAN ON TO GET THROUGH WORK?? ANY SNACKS OR BEVERAGES THAT HELP YOU MAKE IT TO THE END OF A SHIFT?? WHAT ABOUT OTHER TREATS?? ✨ ☕️ 🥜 🍇 🍭 🥯 🍌 🧁 🍩 🥗 🍟 ✨

Aside from having a coffee throughout the day :), I look forward to working on my arts and crafts when I get home (even if for just only a few minutes).

Restaurant businesses have no consistency, and outside variables such as public events and weather have the power to affect the restaurant business.

As restaurant workers, we know if the restaurant has a slow night. We won’t make money either.

In this case, it makes sense for the restaurant to call-off workers/workers. While restaurants save from labor costs, the rest of the workers can make money in the slow shift.

At the same time, losing a shift that there is no money for the day. It can frustrate restaurant workers/workers who call off their restaurant shifts.

Either way, we should keep it positive and not be stressed about call-offs! Share your opinion in the comments!

I worked half a day when it was very slow. I took 4 hours of vacation and did much needed work at home. The pay was the same and I got things done!

Be very careful, there are so many scammers that are using the names and all of the company information to reputable companies, but they are not legitimate.

one thing I did is read up on the company. show the person interviewing that you know about the history and little things about the company. that's really with any job, but I had an interview today and I think I got the job. I made sure to tell them I am an excellent multi-tasker, I love talking to people, and helping people with their problems. Anything dealing with people and being good at working in a busy environment seems to be good.

It depends on your state and how they the wording of the law within the actual labor laws. and if you're an independent contractor then it is based on the contract. I live in TN, and they have certain industries that aren't required to based on how they pay and the only hours they can work. If you submit a 2 week check, they have the option of paying time and half after 80 hours within the period so if you work 46 hours the next but only work 26 the second week the company is not required. It's a screwup on loop-hole that not many people know and if enough people complained to the labor board that might change.
