- no we don't have footlongs we aren't subway
- no banana peppers; not subway
- no steak either. not. subway.

the #4 turkey tom is the most popular sub at our location. i don't like the turkey personally, since i have to slice it. whenever i open the turkey packs, i have to drain out the foul-smelling preservatives. permanently turned me off to the turkey.

try the #1 pepe. we are supposed to recommend it when a customer asks for a recommendation, because it costs the least for the store to make, but i recommend it because the ham is good. add dijon and cucumbers to it. #6 veggie is also good. add bacon to it ($2)

Five guys is a complete rip off, 10+$ for a cheeseburger is ridiculous

>> No.6990950

first time i went to five guys i had no idea i had to specify single or double patty. i find it kind of funny the default is double. america.

i totally agree our policy on substitutions is stingy. it's just set up to make us extra money. customer satisfaction takes a back seat. want a garg no turkey extra beef? that'll be two extra dollars sir.

we also don't do any sides except peppers. this i think is justified. we're not a salad bar. you can't have extra portions of all our veggies on the side just because you don't know whether or not your picky wife will like it. that's your problem. no sauce on the side because we have nothing to put it in. we charge for water cups too. i've made many people unhappy explaining these policies, all i can do is try to relate and tell them it's out of my hands.

there are customers who don't read the online menu and end up spending more when they could have saved money. i get orders like 4 turkey tom add cheese add avocado all the time. that's the #12 ya dingus. we won't let you know you made these mistakes either. we talk shit about you when we see the ticket too.

The point of that is so that people will think that it's a good value since the default burger has to patties.

-No we can't take the seasoning off our fries, they come out of the bag that way.
-The difference between an All American Cheeseburger and a Rally Burger is an AA has 4 ingredients and you cant add anything and it costs a $1. A RB has everything on it for $1.89. Sorry I cant add every vegatable on the store to your AA for free, becuase then it would be a different sandwich.

it doesn't make me mad but it sure gets annoying. not as annoying as people who stand in front of the locked doors staring inside, knocking, waving, expecting to be let in when we're trying to close up and go home. two people have done this to me so far and i don't understand where they got off.

bagging every sandwich is a waste of time and money and we prioritize speed. the vast majority of orders don't need a bag. do you really need a bag for 1-2 sandwiches and some napkins? are you kayaking home?

the reason they won't deliver to you and are so stingy about it is because corporate has a list of streets and addresses inside the delivery range and when the auditors come they will check the delivery history they will subtract an insane amount of points for having delivered outside of your range. it subsequently impacts the monthly bonus salary managers receive. so not caring and delivering to you could potentially result in hundreds of dollars of income lost per manager each month.

sometimes night managers don't care (i don't since i'm not salary.) if we already took the order and made it before realizing, i will sometimes be the good guy and deliver it anyway, but i'll have the driver explain that we can't do it again.

>> No.6992231

Yeah. It's only annoying at most sometimes.

Like when you're getting destroyed and the other servers you're working with suck.

But then you count your tips afterward and don't care how pissed off you were an hour ago.

But good lord the only servers that cry about wanting a raise are the bad ones. Fuck off I don't want minimum wage I already make like 20 an hour. And usually it's servers at nicer restaurants that bitch.

I don't have a hostess, or a busser, or a food runner or even a dish washer 80% of the time and I still feel overpaid.

you can get around the delivery range easy with social engineering, just pick an address up the road you know is in the range, walk or drive over and wait there. if you get to know the drivers and tip well, they'll probably remember your name, and then you can just leave your real address in the delivery instructions. word it carefully as it has a character limit. drivers are usually just kids trying to make a buck, so they're pretty relaxed. the older ones are bitter, lazy pricks and won't bend over backwards for anyone.

you aren't supposed to push on the bag, no. it releases toxins from the tea leaves that noticeably affect the taste. embitters it and makes it leave a dry aftertaste. regular tea drinkers will notice. pressing also won't speed up the steeping process, but if you must, press very lightly as to just release the fluid from the bag. i spoon the bag out and use the string wrapped around the spoon to release the water.

i'm just telling my experience, my opinions, maybe i am wrong. i've drank tea ranging from cheap to expensive. the only difference in brands of tea leaves depends on the physical dimensions of the leaves. how they're shaped effects the dissolution process. flat leaves eliminate some of the hydrophobic properties of the leaves allowing them to absorb water quicker. so in theory if the leaves are all squished together in the bag, it'll steep slower.

I work in a grocery store. Not "food" in the way you're thinking of but still a lot of food there.

It's alright I guess. A lot of customers are pretty nice, some of them are very impatient. I just think it's odd when people get so mad when they have to wait an extra two minutes because an item didn't have a barcode on it. Also, paying with checks is pretty silly.

But one thing that really annoys me: reusable bags. I get they are better for the environment, but they are always more of a pain in the ass to handle.

I sort of agree, but to play devil's advocate, it's a very American phenomenon where people in these jobs are expected to be all nice and smiley. In most other places in the world, you're not expected to have to smile all the time and pretend to be happy.

It's pretty strange that people expect retail workers to actually be happy when they so obviously are not. It's pretty obvious there's just doing it for the money, so why so much pressure to be super nice?

I get this a lot because where I work never closes. So the phone rings nonstop on Christmas, "Are you open?" ... "No, I'm sitting here in the dark answering the telephone in a closed store."

If you ever do need to call a business that you're not sure if they're open or not, it's better to ask, "What time are you open until?"

I used to work at a chain called the montana club, it was decent food but over priced. The wait staff was paid regular minimum wage, therefore there was a small tip pool. I used to always hear people bitch and complain about getting bad tips, and it drove me up the wall. I would bust ass in a no a/c dishpit, trying to keep up with food covered plates that the waitstaff couldn't be troubled to scrape off for me. while moving plates and cookware to the line, waitstaff couldn't be bothered to move out of my way when they were counting their tips. I once had a guy tell me how he only got a two dollar tip on a 15 dollar bill. They would all brag how each server could make 100-200 a night on tips alone, yet the money I got each week from tip pool was about 15-20 bucks. Loved working with everyone except waitstaff, and Its made me a really jewey tipper when waitstaff could be doing better.

Sure but American service jobs pay a shitload more than say, service jobs in Brazil (the third world shithole I'm from), or service jobs in any other third world shithole (many of which I've visited). And the workers in those places generally greet you if not with a smile and cheerful helpfulness, at least an absence of passive-aggression

Honestly, might have something to do with service jobs in America being literal bottom of the barrel work, whereas service jobs in other countries compete for that position with manual labor, but hey, I don't want to need to take your subdued rage against a society that deems you and the job you work as complete losers with my fries, I just want my fucking meal without the attitude

also not on menus is the Slim Bacon. it's just bread and five slices of bacon (formerly six) but isn't listed in the slims menu due to the low profit yields from bacon. this is why we'll never upsell you bacon. we also have yellow mustard packet sides that nobody seems to know about.

>people asking us if they could bring food on board, and the answer is yes, especially since we're right by all the boarding gates and anything you buy after the metal detectors you can bring onboard

Once, I was flying home from Dublin to Charlotte on US Airways (fuck US Airways btw), and had some Eurobux to spend up, so I decided to get an Irish coffee from a little stand right by the gate. I didn't think it'd take so long, but the cute Polish girl making it ground beans, made espresso, added milk and cream and honestly a pretty good tot of Jamesons, and by that time my boarding group or whatever had been called. So I grab it, thank the lady, and head on over to board the plane, to be told that I can't board with a hot beverage. I end up chugging as much as I can, because it was like a nine euro drink, but still manage to burn my tongue and not finish it.

Anyway, the moral of the story is you can't take hot beverages on planes, and that's fucking bullshit and I am still upset about wasting about half an Irish coffee.

we do have cherry peppers, just ask for the hot peppers. they blend with the taste of our choices in meats perfectly in my opinion. subway, as a custom sandwich shop, uses the milder-tasting banana peppers to complement their wider selection of sandwiches. they also have jalapenos which from my experience was the least popular subway topping. everyone loves our cherry peppers though.

ask for ez hot peppers at jimmy john's. less is more. they'll add a spicy kick but don't burn and destroy your meal.

The worst is when we have prospective members come in.

9/10 kitchen staff are Hispanic. We hide them all while the prospective members look, so it's all white guys in the kitchen when they're looking.

By the time they found out it wasn't white people cooking, theyd be down 40k for a membership and 15k for a wine locker, so it's either Mexicans cook for you and you deal with it, or -65k because you're a whiney entitled bitch.

actually the issue comes from lazy in-shoppers who don't know the system, who will hand someone their paid online pickup order with an open balance and let them walk out without clearing the order. sometimes there is an issue with the pickup orders, such as ones that show a 1 cent open balance, and being the idiots they are they won't know what to do so they just close the order window silently and let management discover it later.

a pickup order will also stay open if an in-shopper doesn't apply a tip/no tip (yes we accept tips on pickups yet it rarely happens.) at the end of the night i have to clear these open orders or else the software freezes trying to calculate its end of the day report. i usually do, sometimes i forget.

so you can do what you like, but online orders have to be paid for, pickups can't be set to be picked up after close, you're going to get bread that's nearly expired, you have to sit with the feeling that you made a handful of minimum wage teenagers go home about ten minutes later than usual, and if you want delivery there's an extra charge and you're also going to have to tip my driver. you'll be the loser at the end of your hilarious le ebin prank, trust me.

Not long ago, I was waiting at a place that was very slow and had a cheap menu (imo, considering the quality, portions, and state I live in). Now I've got a new job working at a classier place that's much busier and has a menu about twice as expensive, though the job is more demanding because my boss demands a greater level of formality and there's more pressure to perform well with these higher stakes.

And now the tips per table are holy shit, obviously larger than what I was previously making. Whereas before, a shitty tip meant the difference between going home with almost enough for rent or with pocket change, now I can finally see how the other waitresses I work with can actually support their kids with this pay.

One problem, now, though. At the other place, I could gauge my level of service pretty well. I knew when I'd fucked up and the customer gave me a light tip because of it and I knew when I'd given the best service possible and the customer was just cheap, as well as having an average of fair to good tips. But now I'm not sure if I can measure my quality of work as easily. Now even a "bad" tip isn't as disappointing, but I can't tell if I'm getting a low fractional tip because my service wasn't on par, or because the customer just thought their meal was overpriced, and so shaved down their tip to save themselves some money. This makes it harder for me to figure out where I need to improve and what each of my customers wants.

I'm trying to communicate with my customers to see how their meal is going, but you guys probably know about the amount of people that will just nod and vaguely say "good" when asked how everything is, only to have a complaint at the very end of the meal or when they go home to write a yelp review, when the server could've just fixed it at the start. And I can't believe the amount of people that come in to a nice meal at these prices and are already in a bad mood, and apparently spend the whole night fighting with eachother.

sometimes we still have the door unlocked because customers are still eating, yet people still will try to come in well after we close and occasionally retarded waiters actually seat them because it's a great idea for the restaurant to lose money by paying people to stay to cook for 1 table.


I dunno, I have some irrational drive to keep doing it because I love having people enjoy my food and my dream is to have Thomas Keller yell at me for a living. I could always go back to school if I decided I wanted to actually make money or have a life, I have a BS in dietetics and biochem but I just decided I wanted to cook after I graduated.

Server here, sorry if you're question is just targeted at kitchen staff. I guess I'm just not jaded yet. If it weren't for this job, I'd be a NEET shut in, and so have a reluctance to gain other career skills and am still working in the same industry as my first job. I love food and being around food but can't cook well myself. And I like watching other people enjoy food and restaurant ambiance and hospitality. I feel it's good to be making people happy. I sometimes like to pretend that every customer is having their special night out (and know some really are), and it's my job to make it the best possible. I like catering at weddings because it feels like it makes me a part of making the best day of someone's life. I like living on tips so far because I like the satisfaction of being rewarded for a job well done. I get paid for what I provide at the amount the person I'm serving thinks is fair, which is something I couldn't experience if I received an hourly wage whether I did well or not. There are drawbacks, especially if your experience tells you most people are selfish entitled assholes, and I think I'll get burned out someday, but not yet.

My sister is in hospitality too, but not food. She works for a tour company and travels the world leading people on their vacations. My job is less glamorous (on the outside looking in, that is, her job deals with all kinds of bullshit) but same principle.

I have been. Keeping track of my paystubs and hours, tips too. My paycheck isn't matching up what it was when I started working here, and it's definitely not because I'm making good tips. It's been pretty dead lately.
The owner's a weasel and will lie his way out of anything. Pretty sure he should have paid for my car repair when it broke down on the shift (after being forced to use it, because the regular vehicle was in the shop). He said "I would swear on a bible that I heard you say it was okay to use your own car", when I would have said no just because my car can barely make it back and forth to work without problems anyway.

I'm second in command of a famous chef restaurant here in my country, he's my friend and we invented all the plates together.

All our food is fucking expensive, and our clients are always extremelly rich, that's cool, we treat them all with respect, and our crew always put their best on all food.

But sometimes, those really expensive plates, we have to serve missing a few spices, even a few ingredients. We keep quiet, we serve 'em and they love it. Then I proceed to ask what they think of missing ingredient #1, #2 and whatever and they talk like it was there all along. I always thought that people willing to eat in places like this are a bit pretentious, but I'm pretty sure now.

So much of the business is about psychology. If an ignorant person spends that much more money for something, they can trick their brain into liking it more just to avoid feeling regret.
