Enjoyable but not rewarding.
Events Coordinator / Barman and Waiter (Current Employee) – Blackburn – 7 May 2014
The actual work environment is fine, my co-workers are fantastic to work with, but unfortunately the progression for the company is small, the salary in which is provided is national minimum wage, and with this particular industry being unsociable hours, there is no personal lifestyle to live, and you have to work extra hard and extremely long hours to be paid a half decent wage.
On the upside, I am paid weekly which helps be with my budgeting, and the most enjoyable part of my job is just the fantastic relationships I have built with not only my co-workers but with some of my customers as well. It's always a joy to provide an enjoyable and professional service and turn somebodies day into a happy one.
I've learned a lot about the industry in general, whether its the basics of how a pub/restaurant should run, such as; table service, quality of drinks, good customer environment. Also basics on keeping a pub running smoothly and with high quality beverages. such as cleaning the pipes to provide fresh tasting clean beer/cider/lager/sodas and the rotation of stock,
Overall I do enjoy working at the Willows but I want to pursue within an industry that allows me to use my degree.
