Restaurant Worker / Designer / Marketing
  • A restaurant job is not like brain surgery. It is a simple job, but it requires skills. Those skills come with experience.

  • Restaurant shifts can be long and late at night.

  • Working in front of the house or back doesn’t matter because the job requires you to be on your feet, moving around, and carrying things for long periods.

  • The restaurant job is not great for everyone. The shift can be stressful when it gets busy. If you are not multi-task, it could be a stressful night.

  • if you work in the front of the house, you have to be polite all the time towards guests.

These are the challenges I remember. Let me know about other challenges with working in a restaurant. Please, add your comments.

I don't believe a restaurant job would be simple. Wait staff must be customer service oriented, must think on their feet, remember menu items at the drop of a hat, even if they change daily. Plus they come up against the most rude, inconsiderate people, make a very low wage, are on their feet for hours, handle hot plates, tips aren't a given & must be pleasant through it all. A cook, dishwasher, or busser also has to work hard, oftentimes in very difficult environments - hot kitchen, easy to slip or cut yourself. This does not sound simple to me. Restaurant workers are at the mercy of the public. Working in a restaurant may be temporary for many who are moonlighting or working their way through college. Otherwise, a restaurant job as a cook/chef or any other role would work out well if you loved it so much you could own & operate your own place.

If you enjoy challenges and have a lot of energy it's a good day. Physically is a majority of the job, but if you care for your body you can withstand everyday. It's not a place for physically inclined.
