IHOP

Resturaunt Server

May - August 2019 • Glendale, AZ

What I liked

What I liked most about this job was the payment system. As a server, one gets paid a small $8/hour but with the reassurance that every tip would go directly into the pocket of that server. The reason I worked well with this system was because it gave me the drive to gain that return on time investment with the customers by creating a great experience which would give me energy to continue through my shift.

What I wish was different

If I could change this experience I would change the relationship that was created with the management because towards the ends they interpreted my fun loving demeanor as annoying and so my shifts affected to that where I worked when they managers were not there. This was frustrating because I wanted to learn the most possible from my team leads in order to get the most precise information.

Advice

A piece of advice I would share to someone who wanted to take up a position as a restaurant server, I would tell them to not get too involved with each table; be courteous and kind, but work has to get done and money has to continue flowing. Take your time with a table, but not too much time because this is an easy way to fall behind on orders or food pickups and creates a more stressful situation.

Advice

When your in a happy mood, others around you will be happy as well. If there is a hard time that happens, some people would say pretend that everything is ok but I say that if its affecting you to do your job, then take the day off. Your health is more important.
