July 2015
"Very long hours. Hard work, filthy conditions. Low pay."
Pros: I like most socialising with the other young waiters as it makes standing on your feet for 16 hours bearable. I also like that we get half price food on the days we work.
Cons: The manager is born straight out of hell. The place has cockroaches. The pay is pathetic. No half price alcohol after work. Very long hours. Place is falling apart.

"Discover new people. Discover new beer."
Pros: Craft beer is great! It's exciting to learn about and it's even cooler that so many different walks of life can come together to enjoy such a great thing! I love to meet new people and learn what they like! It's fun to impress patrons by greeting them by name or remembering what they had when they stop in on future visits! It makes me feel as appreciated, as they are to me!
Cons: Lack of communication. Lack of preparation. Stress level. Management.
March 2016

March 2016
