    A Regular Restaurant Job

    Apr 14, 2022 - Server/Togo Specialist in Tampa, FL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You will make a good amount of money and the job is not too difficult

    Cons

    Culture can be very toxic, more manual labor than most serving jobs because you run your own food and carry trays with many heavy plates. Resulted in a lot of back, knee, and foot pain and I was very young (17-22). They will exploit you if you let them just like most corporation restaurant chains. They would not allow me to have a break even after 8 hours of work, and would change my time sheet. Only room for promotion is if they like you but are not good at your current job. Rather than being a good worker, befriending the higher-ups will get you better hours.
