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.
@Nur Yunlu When I was a senior in highschool, I worked as a dishwasher at a steakhouse down the street, I fit in good in the back, away from the people, I tried to buss tables and I was miserable, I even slipped and fell in front of the customers!☹️
@Nur Yunlu Oh my gosh yes! The physical demands of working in a restaurant and other customer service positions are sooooo challenging! I don't think a lot of folks realize that most people working in #FoodServices often go long periods without ever sitting down, or taking a break to eat - or even use the bathroom. It's unbelievable some of the things I've seen people go through and come out the other side of, at these kinds of jobs!! I think I will be paying the price for a decade in restaurants as my body deteriorates over time, and I can already feel some lasting effects from it now! 🖤
many use telegram to get people to give them information and then they disappear. Also look at their email. Many use gmail without a company email.
Me personally for simple reason because I as a truck driver have ate in restaurants all across the United States have seen and heard lot sad story’s from waiters and waitresses . I really believe that they are really under paid. Because if you sit and watch the way they have to stay in a run . I honestly don’t think I could handle the long hours and standing all day and for some plum into late hours of night until closing. Just other day I was eating at Cracker Barrel. I was watching as waitress and waiters where on constant run back and forth. I suddenly saw this old gentleman cleaning tables . As he came to table next to me and as I notice he walked with a limp. I ask him how long it would be before he could retired. He replied sir I have been retired for few years now but him and his elderly wife couldn’t make it on what he drawed a month. He said his wife was sickly and could no longer work. And because of his handicap he couldn’t do much of anything else. As he walked away with his limp I watched him out of site and I felt tears come into my eyes I thought dear God please open the eyes to many that can’t and prob never see what our elderly senior citizens have to do to make it in our country. As I was leaving my table to pay for my food I walked by the old gentleman and shook his hand as I slipped him a tip. As I turned around to see one more time the old gentleman he was staring at me and held his hands in praying position as he smiled . So please the next time you are sitting in a restaurant just take the time and watch the help that is working so hard to make your meal a pleasant and comfortable just for you.
Pay attention to the Master Chef any chance you get. Leave the Sioux Chef alone, he will scalp you at any mistake. Outside of smoke or lunch break, you will be standing, bending, stretching and turning pretty much all day. Social Skills Required. Team Player a Must. Must be able to work in fast pace environment. Be ready for instant schedule or overtime changes, or be willing to work on your days off.
Hi, there! I am volodymyr solonynko from Ukraine As a experienced front-end developer I hope work with your team very much. I wait for your response soon. Regards
I trained for a position as a teacher. I did, but no school deemed me good enough to become a teacher in any of the schools I requested a position. I have a BS degree in English/Journalism and one in Telecommunications Management. Neither one panned out. So, here I am 76, and sitting at home doing basically nothing... So, what do I do now???????????????????????????????????????
