While the most commonly known Front of the House position is Waiter or Waitress, there are many other jobs necessary to bridge the gap between the Back of the House and the FOH. 👨🏽‍🍳 🌉 🤵🏻‍♀️

These jobs include roles such as Busser, 🧽 🧹who are people who clear and clean tables, both as the patrons are eating, and after they’re finished. There are also folks who are Food Runners. They take hot plates 🍽 from the Kitchen Window out to the diners themselves. Other jobs like Barback 🍸 help in other areas of the restaurant, like behind the bar. Servers Assistants are usually only found in fine dining, and are often younger Servers training to take on a larger Serving role in the future.

I’ve worked in places where I personally filled all of those roles myself, while simultaneously doing everything else my tables needed, and therefore got to keep 100% of my own tips, as well. But in most Restaurants, the way these crew members are paid, is partly through a portion of the tips made that shift. The servers that these folks helped throughout the night are the ones who would pay directly for the aid they received.

Would you rather do everything yourself and keep all the money you’ve made?? OR Would you be willing to share a small amount with someone who has your back and can perform essential, but sometimes extraneous, duties that are often necessary to keep a restaurant engine humming smoothly??

I loved being a barback and the bartenders shared their tips with me. I was always surprised by their generosity. It was a great way to earn cash while in college.

Sharing all the way! Its so important that everyone in the restaurant works as a team, if I was doing everything by myself, I'd get exhausted and the service would suffer! It's much better in my opinion to split the work and the tips.

I like my current job in property management but I only get paid $16 an hour and we do way more than usual property management companies since we’re a small company. I just recovered from pneumonia after being off for a month but my job was really understanding of it and I would like to keep it around since I have underlined health conditions. I love (who really loves their job) my job and the people I work with. I know they need help but I have been working for them exactly a year. What is the best way to ask for a raise? #workfromhome #raise #firstjob

What about asking to be a resident on one of the properties with compensation of expenses? Its the craft of a good negotiator......

Start with looking at what the Property Managers in your area make annually and with however many years of experience you have so that you at least have an idea on what you should be compensated.

You never want to go in asking for a raise blindly on what others in the same geographic and profession are making. This knowledge will help you negotiate way better had you not know the average compensation and it gives the confidence one needs to negotiate a better salary. Look on Glassdoor.com to search the pay. Good luck!!

So my daughter is 19 years old and started working at Chick-fil-A. She quickly realized this company treated her very poorly and with this being one of her first jobs she didn’t know her rights as an employee. This company takes advantage of that situation. If she calls in sick from work she loses points if she takes a break and maybe stays out a couple of minutes too long she loses points. If you call in sick three times you’re fired! And they don’t care if you have a doctors note! She started working there very happy and joyful she was really good with customers and she has a great work ethic she’s currently in college and trying to work to. I don’t feel that a 19-year-old girl should be coming home crying because of the way she’s being treated at her job and this isn’t the only Chick-fil-A that treats their employees this way. After seeing what my daughter was going through I visited a different Chick-fil-A in the drive-through I asked the employees two of them how they felt about this job and they both voiced how miserable that company is

Does notale them bad. Companies need workers. Your break is 15 mon and you take 20 that's company time. Been at my job for 11 years we have 5 points and NO sick days we have to use vacation and no doctors notes. People want get paid but don't want rules.

Its a hard lesson to learn but good that she is learning it early on. What is normal and what isnt in the work environment. You're right, no job should have you coming home crying every day. I hope she is able to find a better situation quickly

@Jen Verdinelli-Viereck based on your profile with your last job it would seem like you could have transferable skills for an at home Customer Service Agent. You can find these jobs by doing a search on Jobcase by clicking on Jobs in the navigation, entering the role you're interested in and you can filter to WFH jobs only.
