Waiter (Former Employee) –  Bournemouth22 November 2016
They were not very organised, alot of running around, chasing tales, alot of tension from the higher staff, I suppose it comes with a pressured job with low pay but it was stressful.

I also had to work many more hours than expected, an example; I was suppose to have the day off, they asked me to come in 10am-12 noon to fill out some forms, at the end they said they needed me to work until they had a quiet, no break/leave until 9pm.

The bulk of the staff are lovely and very helpful though.
Pros
small occassional lunches, some staff are hilarious
Cons
Low pay, unreliable or unreasonable hrs

Good job.
Summer Temporary (Former Employee) –  Bournemouth8 October 2013
Working at harvester was a summer temp job.

Because it was summer, Harvester was very busy. Even though I wasn't a waitress, clearing tables itself was very hard! I would have to clean an amount of 3 tables within a span of 5 minutes, having them cleared of all the plates, wiped thoroughly and set up with cutlery. It doesn't sound hard, but it was.

I learnt how to waitress very easily.

The boss was very strict, I personally did not like her at all but don't we all? She was just doing her job.

Because we were so busy all the time, I barely ever had time to meet, talk or get to know anyone I worked with. Everyone seemed very moody and sarcastic when I managed to talk to them.

(Above) It was a very hard job in the span of a month, I lost 2 pounds in weight due to so much walking. My jeans can't fit me anymore, they're too big! Whenever we were really busy, and some other waitresses couldn't make it, I would be asked to cover and do waitressing, and I was very happy to help. I hated cleaning tables, but it's the money I need!

Honestly, I didn't enjoy anything! I needed the money, and I got the money.
Pros
Free coke! Lost 2 pounds in weight!!
Cons
1 hour bus journey w/ 2 buses. Late finishes - getting home late.
