What I wish was different
My boss was a terrible people person, and I wish I hadn't been employed by him. There was obvious favoritism, as well bickering and yelling between servers consistently. The staff wasn't very supportive, and unlike most restaurants, there was almost no sense of community in the restaurant: servers were belligerent and seemed to have no sense of personal boundaries or basic respect and empathy for other co-workers. My co-workers seemed to have a complete lack of emotional intelligence, and we're helplessly rude. You have to work every holiday except Christmas, to a point where you cannot even make a request off. This was the most toxic workplace I've worked in.
