What is it like working as a Waiter/Waitress at Pizza Hut, Inc.?

Waiter/Waitress in Milton Keynes:
"Nice place to work but bad pay"
Pros: I Like how I am able to get along with everyone I work with. However, due to lack of money our store is shutting. But I've loved working there!
Cons: The pay is really bad tho, for me as I am 17 it's only £3.68 but 60p more as I've been there longer than a year!
