Great experience as a server. Side work was a little excessive.

Pros

Good money, flexible hours, benefits available the first day you're hired, and great management.

Cons

Long hours because of side work. I work at Seasons 52 and the side work was pretty extensive. The main reason there is so much side work is because they do not have bussers at our restaurant. That means that you have to polish wine glasses and/or silverware, do your main side work, and clean your tables. It usually takes you about an hour or two to leave once you've been cut.

Advice to Management

Revisit the idea of having bussers at Seasons 52. It will free up time for servers so that they can add to the experience of their guests and they would be working less overtime hours.
