Restaurant Shift Leader

May 2018 • Cedar Rapids, IA

What I liked

The schedule is flexible when it comes to all that’s going on in my life and is very reliable for hours. Plus it’s family owned so I feel like I’m cared for on a personal level and my bosses want me to succeed at the job and otherwise.

What I wish was different

I wish I would of pushed myself sooner to apply for this job it would of helped a lot financially. But I saw me being a college student almost as a crippling trait.

Advice

Pushing yourself makes you stand out. Your best can always be better and it will pay off thinking this way

Supervisor

November 2017 • Portland, OR

What I liked

I like the amount of costumer service you receive from working here. You learn to be very patient with various people, whether you work or assist them. Plus, time management becomes a big bonus as you're juggling both schoolwork and work outside of school!

What I wish was different

Definitely wished that it was closer to campus, since I usually bike or walk to work. I also wish that they had one cohesive manner of running the business. Each member of the family tends to have their own view of how it should be run, which definitely applies a lot of stress onto myself, since I don't know which path would be the safest way to run the evening shift. I already have a lot of stress with school, and the last thing I need is the burden they put on me once in a while.

Advice

Be aware of where you want to work. Look at the environment of the place, and understand how comfortable you'd be working in such conditions. Even fast food jobs aren't made for everyone!

What I wish was different

I wish I had more resources to make even better cakes.

Advice

If you ever want to go for a job like this, make sure you have good time management skills. The display freezer had to be stocked at all times and I had several custom orders I needed to make on time every week.
