fun, productive
Restaurant Manager (Former Employee), 32a constant spring Road, Kingston JamaicaMarch 17, 2014
very productive and conducive to employees needs.
A typical day at work? nothing about working at Restaurant Associate was typical, its a fun,yet seriously productive place.
Working there for almost ten years have taught me the art of GOOD customer service and that is a lesson i"ll take with me wherever life leads me.
My co-workers/ staffs were some – more... of the best people around.The hardest part of the job have to be the day when one of your customers leave your store unhappy.
Serving your customer with a smile at all times and having them return your the favor by bringing new potential customers to your establishment is always a great day. – less

Café Shift Supervisor/Acctg Staff (Former Employee), Washington, DCOctober 11, 2013
I love how the job is always exciting. We serve not just healthy meal but a smile that gives our customers joy and great experience in the museum. Everyday at work is always a great challenge for me because our patrons are very much diverse and challenging in a way. I learned a lot about troubleshooting our registers and network which came very handy – more... because i had finished computer science for my undergraduate. Managing and shifting people around was also a challenge. Learning how to motivate your employees to strive harder and love their jobs are the best part of the job. – less

Cook (Current Employee), New York, NYSeptember 26, 2013
Pros: great co-workers, learning experience
Cons: healthcare, short breaks
The environment can be very hostile & unpleasant, not among co-workers but upper management. The hardest part of the job is exceeding expectations of management without feeling pressured and not risk the chance of losing employment or getting written up, if their expectations haven't been met.

Sous Chef (Former Employee), Boston, MAAugust 26, 2013
Pros: if you lack imagination and need to have someone alse do your thinking, by all means go for it
Cons: no life with family, no creativity, not really enjoyable, management is the enemy for lazhy workers that know they cant get fired
Kitchen is a union run kitchen, so as a chef/manager you do not do much cooking. Not good for imagination. If you want to be a mindless drowne and work for a corpotation, you will love this place.

Beverage Manager /KC Café Manager (Former Employee), Washington DCJuly 30, 2013
I was extremely honored to have worked in such a prestigious building. There was a time for about a 6 month stretch were I was running two departments within the organization. The KC Cafe was remodeling but had no manager. So based my prior casual dining experience, I was appointed to spearhead the operations aspect of the remodel and re opening while – more... maintaining my current position as beverage manager. My day consisted of being in two places at one time (sometimes three or four depending on what was needed with banquets and employee cafeteria). Properly planning my day , precise staffing and a constant rotation ("figure 8") from area to area provide for my success at this. – less
