Come to the Boar, prep for the day, serve and smile, prep for night, serve and smile, close and clean, go home.
I've learned a lot, I've learned to make coffee and cocktails. How to match wine etc.
A particular manager at the Boar is very disrespectful and arrogant. Withholds useful knowledge unnecessarily. Openly recognised as lazy. Difficult to work for.
The other managers are wonderful and passionate. Flawed but forgiven. Easy to work for.
I adore the team at the boar. I'm genuinely in love with at least a third of them.
The rota frequently has a lot of mistakes, people often have to come in off rota. Working for the particular manager is the hardest part.
Laughing with co-workers and customers alike, learning about them are the reasons I love this job.
