You make a lot of money but only if you’re serving in the bistro, as banquets doesn’t make tips and the hours are unbearable. Even if you’re serving in the restaurant, they will likely make you work banquets for a couple hours after the restaurant closes, regardless of how long you’ve been there. You also never get breaks. I was lucky to get a 20 minute break 1 out of every 20 shifts, which were anywhere from 6-10 hours. It was very hard to fit in as employees were very cliquey and rude. You’ll get lots of hours which is good to make money, but can get exhausting as they always seem to be understaffed, so you end up doing the work of 2-3 people by yourself. This also means you’ll likely never be able to book time off. I would not recommend banquets at all, just find another minimum wage job, as the amount of work you will have to do isn’t worth the money. Bistro is okay, as long as you can deal with no breaks, 10 hour shifts, rude co workers and old men constantly hitting on you.
On a side note, management was absolutely terrible. Management did not care about the needs of the employees and was only concerned with making money. Make sure to track your hours and tips carefully as you may be underpaid.
