waiting tables is a thankless job, but a good way to make it through school!

Server (Current Employee)

ProsThe best reason to work in the food service industry is the money. That is basically the only thing to do it for. There is no room for advancement or personal growth. Its not this company specifically, its just the way the business is. You wait tables and collect your tips. If you do it well, you get good tips..if not, you move on. I usually averaged around 15-20 dollars an hour. Its a godd way to get through school.

ConsThe work is fast paced and very stressful. Some customers are repectful, courteous and polite. Some are not. Some go out of their way to take out their stresses on you. As a server you get very little respect form customers. Most assume you are not very intellegent and treat you as such. Again the money is the only reason to wait tables. I never really got any personal satisfaction from doing it. Again the money is good and the hours are great for getting through school.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe managment is treated about the same as the serving staff. They work long hours and get very little respect or satisfaction from their jobs. Most would last about a year and move on. The food service industry is not something to make a career out of.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
