Is anyone not from the US? When did you get used to American food? I have been here for quite long but I still mostly eat Asian food (Chinese Indian Japanese Korean Thai Vietnamese in alphabetical order) so in the South, it was difficult to find good spots. Then I went to some of the established chains (Apple Bee’s Red Lobster Cheesecake Factory etc) and realized there wasn’t much for me to order. What would be a good way to get used to American food that most Americans eat?

    Paid weekly plus room for fabulous tips! Variety of guests from different places

    Managers chose favorites ! Coworkers always linked in groups and were extremely judgemental and mean to one another ! Managers were never fair/equal when it came to servers getting hours especially if you were not a favorite .

    Pros

    people that work there are fantastic, theyre like family. food is amazing. great employee discount. week paid vacation for full time employees after a year. kitchen has a low turnover rate, usually...

    Cons

    you cant get to full time status. as soon as you hit 30-32 hours they start cutting people off the schedule and cutting hours down. managers talk down to everyone and yell at people in front of the customers. managers pick and choose their favorite employees and the GM gives them the most hours. not the best, or hardest workers. that persons friends. managers hang out with employees outside of work when they arent suppose to. and i know, for a fact, that the GM of a certain Red Lobster is allowing her employees to drink alcohol and do illegal drugs while on the clock, getting paid.
