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??

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 have been a cook in many places and diverse capacities. The places that the waitress shared a per cent of tips with the cook and wait staff, prevented ill feelings amongst coworkers and I have some of my happiest memories cooking from those specific places, and even still have friends that go back to those times. Some waitresses who were sneaky and kept the larger percent of tips soon found themselves shunned by the kitchen staff which can end your career in that establishment. I can write a book on it that you wouldn't believe....

One thing I have learned from the pandemic is, nothing stays the same. I have been laid off twice, currently looking for another job, but not having any luck its been depressing and leaving me feeling very scared and lonely and somewhat desperate.

Does anyone have experience working with nosy coworkers who tend to steamroll others? I don’t know if it’s because I’m the youngest in age but I’m a little tired of getting unsolicited help and feedback from my coworker. I understand she meant well but she’s not the boss. She often steps over other people’s toes and dictates how she prefers our work to be done. The boss is not doing anything about it because she’s one of the more senior employees. I’m seriously thinking about transferring or finding a new job because I don’t want to deal with this toxic environment.

I would suggest working with people. I suffer from both mildly and the casual brief interactions help me through bad days. Just to give you an idea I was nearly mute for a while. You would have to judge your own situation.

Sounds like someone gave you the biggest black eye in the community. This would make a great short film! Sorry, if I don't sound sympathetic......

Starting a new ANYTHING can be nerve wracking 😅, but starting a new job can sometimes feel like the biggest change we can make in our lives!! It affects so much of our day-to-day and can influence a lot of our overall happiness!

It’s natural to want a new role to be the right fit and worry about future challenges that will come with it, but over time and with experience, it gets easier to dive into something new!

Whats the best advice you’ve gotten when starting a new job? Whats one thing you wish you did differently from the start?? How do you know when things are finally going smoothly there and you’re all settled in? ✨

I usually try to connect with my new co-workers, whether it is over lunch or a cup of coffee! To show the team that I am a team player, that I can communicate effectively and that I'm not afraid to share my ideas, and that I am happy about joining the team. I feel that by doing these things, it allows me to become more comfortable with being at a new company and it helps me adjust to the expectations of my role. And Drink Lots of Coffee!!! :)

I went on an interview that I thought would be great for me. When I got there I was interviewed by the woman who I spoke to over the phone, and another man. He said he would call everyone that coming Monday to let them know what jobs were available. It has been two weeks and I never heard back from them. When I called the company I was told by the Receptionist that the man that interviewed me was out sick.??? Two weeks? No class! If they were not interested they should have not wasted my time.
