Oh yea! Plus, (well, where I'm at) dishwashers always get best pick at the food.  The chefs will make you something special if you want, cause its hardwork back there and they know it.  It badass.

Also, since I'm training to be a chef I eat so much.  Good damn food too...fajitas. :drooling:

Hell yeah, do the kitchen good and they will hook you up.
I work in a small joint though.. I've seen how it is in a big, busy, restaurant..
How many hours are you working, and do you wash dishes the whole time?
Is it possible to step outside and take a hit from a pipe?
That's why i love my job, we can smoke whenever we want..
All my co-workers and even my boss smokes. It's pretty damn cool

Yeah, I love it when we hire the 'new guy'
They always get broken in well with lots of dishes.
But I am the type of person that will do them too, even if I don't feel like it, to be fair.
I have really good work ethics, IMO
I'm going to make a great manager( I hope and pray)

I worked in a 5 star restaurant as a waiter and dishwasher. We had about 700 people a night with 4 course meals. That means, a shitload of dishes. But, there were like 10 other guys back there, so it helped. Busy, but alright.

Sometimes its possible to take a hit. Usually in the beginning or near the end. Works just fine. Everyone does it. Hell, the one guy keeps a small cooler of beer in the walk in freezer. We've got kegs back there, but thats for the bar.

Its a locally owned place, so the rules are so damn slack. I love this place.

Ahh its not so bad. Its easy for the most part, steady pay, I have time to work and think by myself, Talk to all the waitresses that come through. I kind of like it.
It's not the most glorifying job in the world, but its DEFINATELY not the worst.

They want to promote me because Im quick and efficiant... But I kind of like the dishes...Im thinking about it

Plus, with a good reference you can go anywhere with kitchen experience. Every restaurant that I've been too is always looking for someone to do something.

I've felt like that before... But I have always been good at managing and people skills. I would really enjoy it, and make some improvements that have long been needed.


I know how it is working in a small locally owned joint.. it rocks. My boss is literally the coolest boss a guy could ask for. But he has a problem telling people what to do, making sure things get done, and putting his foot down, sometimes. Which I will change when he leaves

This is why I even do it at all.
because really, I wouldn't have to, if I really didn't want to.
I'd much rather stay in the back washing dishes, than deal with a lunch slam( most days)
Some days, I love the social aspect of my job.

Yeah, I love it when the witty and smart people come, and fuck/have a good time with me. Also, we get at LEAST 3 hot women, daily. Lots of rich, overly hot milfs around to flirt with.
Go for the manager position, dude
= working in a restaurant ain't so bad.

oh that is pretty hardcore. I wish I could make more tips. We aren't allowed to do a tip jar, but people still tip me, because I hold myself well, and always do whatever the customer wants..
Peace bro, +5 shrooms for you and all the other hard workers here.

There was a sign in my restaurant where i worked that separated kitchen and freezers with the rest of the restaurant with a sign "only CHefs and kitchen portertrs allowed behind this point"

i start on tuesday  :cool:

one thing...he said id just have to come in on tuesday fill out some forms, then i'd be ready to start. so yall think that means im in the clear as far as drug tests go? he didn't say anything about it.
i'd heard restaurants are usually pretty lenient about that stuff anyway.

I haven't heard of any restaurant testing.  I know the one I'm at is lenient as hell.

Good luck, its easy to learn and once you get the hang of it, it becomes second nature and you'll finish fast. :smile:

my second job was washing dishes at a health food place.. funnest job i ever had... free meal every day and as much soda as i could drink (yea, for some reason they sold soda).. but i'd go in at 4 pm out at 7, and there was usualy about an hour lunch break every day cause i was so damn quick... the owner was a total bitch to most her employee's (4 women in a 15x15 room for 8+ hours) but super nice to me... it pissed a lot of people off... i'd even help out choppin vegi's and stuff when they were behind, but htat was pretty rare, but fun just the like...

they had the cooleset sink too... three sinks is the way to go, i've been looking for a similar sink for awhile, but havent found one...

the one thing that i didnt like was that my hands started peeling after awhile... mostly on the finger tips and such... but man were they clean... so wear gloves when you can... but it sucks when water gets under your gloves... and occasionaly, you'd get a little wet... i got about 110 a week + tips (about 2-5$ a day)...

as for the 'dishes chore'... well, i never really liked doing dishes, but it's perfectly fine when they are paying you to do it.
