Restaurant Worker / Designer / Marketing

For the Midwest, the weather is getting cold, and the snow season is right around the corner, or already other states are snowing.

I didn’t mind commuting to work an hour and 30 minutes. After the covid pandemic hit us, taking the train or bus got hard because they were always delays, and it was stressful to arrive at work late. I’m not mentioning late-night crime on train stations. I was a witness that someone fell asleep on the train ( I guess he was drunk) and another guy took and robbed him of everything)

Last summer, I found a job at one of my favorite restaurants in my neighborhood. Since then, I have been working there, and the only walking distance is 5 minutes. I don’t have to deal with delayed trains or buses.

What is your experience commuting to your job? Would you prefer to cut the long commute? Please, share your opinion with a comment down below.

I’m inviting everybody to our new group, “Restaurant & Hospitality Superstars." Please, don’t forget to join this group.

I have never liked a long commute. I feel like it added stress and took away from family time. I have always tried to keep my commute less than half an hour. Living in the Chicago area , this can be hard to do though.

Ok, my work background is not being in the restaurant, but it's a vital question for anyone's job. So I come from a union workers perspective and we always go more than Union sends us, but working in the Union you make really good money but the really good benefits and an annuity in all the perks. So if we travel an hour or two we really don't care you go where the work is. In the restaurant business it all depends on what kind of work you do and the tips you make I'm not going to travel an hour to work at TGI Fridays but I will if I'm going to go work at a Ruth Chris see the difference it's all depends on what restaurant and then what kind of money you make.

Depends on the atmosphere and compensation. Nobody commutes for the sake of it. Money and happiness is always the motivator. In that specific order.

District Manager at Acceptance Now

It really would have to be at a restaurant that I was invested in other than just for work. Maybe that food and service is outstanding above and beyond all or at least most others and there would have to me advancement opportunity there.
