"Always Do the Very Best Everyday."
General Manager, Restaurant:
Sometimes, in the real world it does take time to find the right place to work. There is something out there for everyone. It took me over 20 years to find my place and niche - I call it my second home and I find it extremely rewarding. I learned something from everywhere I worked and I took what a learned to the next place. This transfer of information and skills lead me to be the best employee in each position; it also create a situation that each place I worked wanted me to stay and keep my job with them.

"High Stress level."
General Manager, Restaurant:
Pros: The people I hire and my customers.
Cons: The Stress.
July 2014
General Manager, Restaurant:
Pros: The people are very good and the clientele is not as bad as a Mcdonalds or Burger King. There are a fairly good amount of different things to do and it is not very hard work.
Cons: It is tedious. You get paid less than most other restaurants of similar volume. And the promotion opportunities are slim. At least, at Mcdonalds, there are a good amount of places to move up and money can get good, but not so much here.
