I worked at MADRAS CAFE part-time (Less than a year)
nice dynamic with other staff
some staff are helpful
one dish free for employee with every shift
employee discount on extra food
on job training provided
schedule changes are horrible, can change on short notice.
planning for the week ahead is not entirely possible because of schedule changes
break times not fixed
have to do some kitchen work even if hired as server
a lot of internal politics
tips only on cash payments, card payments tips are kept by management
Advice to Management
fix your time schedules
I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MADRAS CAFE (None (Italy)).
I submitted my resume in the restaurant itself. Got a call by evening to report for training next day if possible. no formal interview. worked for 2 weeks then my details were taken to enrol my anme on employee list and issue my first paycheck.
