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.
Stress I would think is bad?
Working around kids all day and dealing with Angry customers gets old
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.
I love making customers happy but like you said it is stressful..
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.
How legit is this? Is sales and commission involved?
Contact me, I'm interested.
Yes it does.
