Dish was always the comfiest station when I worked in a restaurant. I kept begging my manager to "demote" me from cashier to dish all the time but she said I was too """friendly""" to work in dish

Dishdog is the shit when you're sick of the bullshit and stress of cooking. Sometimes you just want get high as fuck, turn on your own music in the pit, and zen out shoving racks into a box and pulling them back out. If you can keep the line stocked and rotate the hot dishes to the bottom without getting in the way of the cooks, you'll be alright.

>> No.9873621

Too often at my previous job, the dish bitch would be too fucking drunk and/or high to keep up, so I would have to jump back there and help and explain to frustrated customers that there is going to be a longer wait. This is why you shouldn't hire mentally handicapped people.

It's all about having your rhythm. If you can look and see a shit-ton of dirty silverware and glasses, servers and bar are gonna need those soon. If it's all plates, kitchen is running short. As long as you can prioritize, you can high as fuck and the staff will still love you.

Do people actually have a hard time getting a bartender job?
I ended up working as a bartender on weekends at a bar nearby my real work for a couple months with no experience just because I was there so often that they offered me the job. 99% of it was just being a cashier for bottled beer. Like if you ever worked at a supermarket, it's like that minus having to know any produce codes. Then 1% of the time some asshole orders a fancy mixed drink and you have to try to refer to your drink mixing guide and pour some different component liquids into a glass based on simple ratios.

>Your name start with an M?
It does not. This was also seven years ago. I didn't work for them very long (didn't need the extra income in the first place and only went along with it for the novelty of the experience, which was quickly outweighed by the annoyance of feeling obligated to show up and bartend instead of staying in and relaxing on the weekends).

My first job was at a little Asian restaurant.
It was weird being the only white guy there.
The managers were either serious or had a stick up their asses, but the cooks and the Sushi chef were cool dudes.
I was hired as a busboy, but they had me doing everything that wasn't taking an order or cooking.
Dish bitch, window washer, sweep and mop the floors, serve drinks, wash windows.
After three months, they fired me and hired a cute redheaded girl, which was bullshit but I didn't hold against them too much.

After a few weeks, they'd start calling me in the evenings to wash dishes, once they'd gotten one of those boxes.

If they'd gotten their alcohol license sooner, they might still be in business, which is a pity because those Louisiana Rolls were fucking awesome.

I did it at a steakhouse where the cooks didnt always make me a dinner meal as promised, i would also bring my chefs knife and jacket like a tryhard but they had no real intention of letting me prep ever because it was so busy.

I ended up no showing one day and quit like that. Really fucked them over. I went on to cook at another place.

Happened to me, I started washing dishes at 16, did it when I started college in the cafeteria then got promoted to line cook. When I graduated I worked as a head cook in a few greasy spoons before leaving the industry.

Best advice to get out of the dish pit? keep your era clean (like a food line) and always offer to do prep work for the other cooks when its between service. If you can take direction and speak english they will probably bump you up.

Cook was speechless at the food being fried. He’s really picky about what gets fried in which grease basket, so as not to cross contaminate. Normally, we don’t deep fey anything pork related, so he didn’t know what to make of it.

The owner, as most restaurant owners are, is completely obsessed with finances and food management. He’d throw a fit if too many fries were being sent out with the burgers. He had accused me a few different times before of “stealing”, only for the manager and other crew members to prove him wrong. I figured if I wasn’t being accused of it anyways, I might as well make the best of the situation.

I straight up battered and deep fried a hamburger once. I didn’t eat it though. We left it underneath the heat lamps to fuck with the server.

>> No.9878522

NO. I mean, yeah, technically, at the end, but not when he was accusing me of it. If I was helping the fry cook, we were allowed to make extra fries or a burger or something for ourselves. The first time he accused me of stealing was when I paid the manager for breakfast to take home with me after early prep shift. Owner saw me making my own food and started screaming that I was robbing him, not knowing I had permission. He was a 70-something year old guy, I don’t blame him. It was a rural town near the Mexicans border, so we had a lot of tweakers and Mexicans that kept him on his toes.

Not enough be debilitating, but enough that she couldn't read social cues and didn't know when to shut the hell up. I was stuck with her constantly talking to me and asking me shit when I was just trying to do my damn job, sometimes it was nice to have the company but other times it just got so grating I actually had to be mean to her and ask her to stop talking to me.

the jobs are easy to get. it'll be comfy if you're fast enough to keep ahead of the work and pretty shitty if you're cleaning even a bit slower than the dishes are piling up. no way to tell you about the culture because it all depends on the dishpit set up, how often you're in contact with boh and foh, the various personalities, etc. i worked at one place where the small dishpit was right in the kitchen proper so i was constantly joking around with the cooks and eventually started helping them with prep, making small orders, and shit like that. at another place i was in a much larger restaurant with multiple dishwashers in our own room and we stayed too busy for me to hang out in the kitchen, but luckily i was able to listen to music via earbuds and zone out through a shift. at the small place i worked from 3 or 4pm until about midnight and at the other place it was most often 11am until 10pm, but only a few days a week and often with mandatory hours long breaks in between lunch and dinner.

Is there anything more irritating than when some fucker dumps a whole plate of food and sauces into your fresh cleaning water? It's like they don't realize to scrape the big shit off. Don't really feel like having a half eaten soggy burger breaking apart and floating around the top while I'm cleaning other dishes.

this is why they have 2 dishwashers at my restaurant. they dont over excel, but get shit done. no need to hire any more man power because 2 dishwashers is just the right amount. when things get super busy they get it all done.
the last restaurant I worked in they only had one guy working the dishwasher and the manager complained why shit didnt get done on time. the retard only hired one person for a high volume restaurant. As a line cook I would hop on at night and wash dishes with the guy until we were done and got some extra hours without the manager knowing

restaurants need to hire 2 people more often. 1 fucking person is not enough. thats why people fucking quit or end up getting fired and managers go on a goose chase to get new people.

Turnover is really only an issue if the cost of training a new employee is high. That's why a manager or a chef will usually get paid higher and get raises when they ask for them where as someone who basically wipes a dish then puts it in machine is not that expensive to replace.

>> No.9902645


For some reason industry threads are always full of trolls whose biggest restaurant experience is going through a fast food drive through. Almost all servers are entitled cunts, because they aren't looking to move up in the profession and just want to make as much money as possible without really contributing anything, knowing they can find another server job within the week if they get fired.

Servers cost a restaurant less than a dishbitch... The only reason you can't get a serving position is because there's something seriously flawed with your social skills. Reach Out and get help.

I managed to restaurant for a little while it cost us $12 an hour to hire a dish bitch. It cost us approximately $3 an hour to hire a waiter. The only reason I wouldn't put you on my staff for $3 an hour its if you had a serious issue with your hygiene or social skills.
