Maybe not so much about what the company did to me, but customers!! I have served all the way through college and although I feel like it helped solidify my work ethic, I would like to share a few things with readers. I am sick of working for the *** of the country and not making jack s**t for it. FYI the guildelines for gratuity are as follows:
Great service: 20%
Good service: 15%
Bad service: 10%
I was an excellent server and SO MANY TIMES I was seconds away from throwing someone's lousy 5% tip back in their face. I have to tell anyone else that intends to wait tables at any point in their life I would try somewhere else besides Texas Roadhouse. Other than trashy clientele, they generally only give 3 table sections (it took me almost a year of working for the company to start getting 4) and there's a 3% tipshare (you give 3% of your sales back to the company and that's how they pay hosts and busboys), this was never negotiable sometimes I literally sold $1,000 worth of food and walked out with $70 in pocket.
