Q: What is it like working as a Dishwasher?
"It's lIke a revolving door."
Pros: The people, and there willingness to help you improve your life, the eh give people chances that 90% of franchises don't.
Cons: Job training is horrible...... Here is your area your job is to do this and this watch..1 minute passes..... OK you try........8 hours pass......... So what you think. They need better training one day and that is not training.
"Strenuous and repetitive."
Pros: I get along with most of my co workers and when I can zone out and get all the work done no one bothers me.
Cons: My manager seems to feel that a dishwasher is deserving of less respect then a server or even the machine I do the dishes in.
"Simple Task with Little Stress."
Service, service, service! Primary responsibilities are to make the job of other hospitality staff as efficient and stress free as possible. The most important question one can ask is "what can I do to help?" The primary focus is, of course, providing a clean plate for the customer above all else. Sanitation and cleanliness are priorities not only at the front of the house but perhaps as importantly in the kitchen itself. A positive and upbeat attitude helps set the tone for the entire hospitality team because without your efforts nothing else that gets done will matter. You are the foundation that makes the entire hospitality experience possible. Good food and good service depend on good stewards servicing not only the customers but the chefs and kitchen staff who plan and prepare the delicious menu for all of us to enjoy!
"My Dishwashing Career."
Pros: I have to say I like to see how I manage to get a certain pile of dishes and pots totally clean and out of the way. A kitchen has to be clean so I enjoying cleaning the necessary areas of the kitchen to make the restaurant work place a wonderful place of business.
Cons: I have to say that I don't enjoy my wages and the way my boss handle the business. I don't have any problem washing the dishes but I hate it when my fellow co worker leave the dishes pile with food that was brought back from the customers table.
Pros: People I work with and the students I help and talk to.
Cons: The fact that I train new hires and they make more money than me.
Pros: There are really no good points to make about this job.
"A minimum wage full-time job that is ALWAYS in-demand."
Pros: I know that I am one of the best dish washers in the business because I have been told so by three previous employers; however, my current employer will not make any acknowledgement as to the quality of work they see coming from me. They appreciate my work but try to make no comments and have told others not to discuss the previous dishwasher with me. They want make-believe that the prior dishwasher was not very good to the job and most other dishwashers are like I am; however, I have been notified three times from three separate employers that I am exceptional. There is no possibility my current employer believes the message they send. This employer behaves as if exceptional employees are only average and behaves to average employees as if they are exceptional. The reason I say this is a good thing is because when you are the best at something you either get a lot of entertainment watching people try to get out of acknowledging it or you get rewarded. Both are rewards likewise, lol.
Cons: The servers load the bus tubs in a disorganized manor piling everything into it in any way it will go instead of stacking like items. The extra work they are causing is substantial considering that they spill sauces on the glasses that need to be hand-washed instead of placing the glasses together in a bus tub with just glasses. If a second server goes to the bus tub to add dishes and the tub has been improperly handled, the server may face difficulty getting everything to fit well since bus tubs hold more with stacked items. Instead, the servers spill sauces on most of the glasses and then the dishwasher must spray them off before sending them through the dish machine, wasting water. What makes it so bad is the manager complains to the dish washer to save water but doesn't care that the servers are causing the water bill to go higher by creating unnecessary work for the spray hose. The dish washer works all day except cigarette breaks doing scheduled tasks while servers make messes.
