    I worked at Pei Wei Asian Diner part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There was always something to do when it was slow, but when it was busy... it was BUSY. It was nice being able to get things done and see tables being served and clean, it honestly felt like a real life version of Diner Dash. The job itself is easy to have a handle on.

    Cons

    While it was nice to be busy, it often became overwhelming to work there because the majority of the time our store was completely understaffed so I would have to the job of 3-4 people all while trying to keep the FOH afloat.
