Agnes Cafe, Ventnor, New Jersey, American Spirit
Experience with agency American Spirit was positive.
Very friendly and active communication during their stay in America. Fortunately , communication was purely for information , since I spent my time in the USA without any problems.
Experience with location Ventnor, New Jersey was positive.
Great possibility of finding another job , especially in the hospitality industry . Ventnor City is a suburb of Atlantic City, It is there right one next to another, literally from one street begins Ventor . Ventnor City is much more peaceful settlement of Atlatnic City. There are plenty of small , mostly family restaurant where you can earn nice . As far as the Atlantic City, a lot of opportunities to work due to casinos , restaurants , promenade by the ocean . There is outlet in which you can also find a job , but I was just buying there. Now , there are parts of the city in which it is literally ghetto and that does not go at all , but this is America . The beach is usually at 5-10 minutes walk , beautifully decorated. The city is a tourist place but live in the winter , unlike other parts of America where people are going to W & T. You earn, you get out, spend . Or just work and sleep , stay full of money but spend it on travel or back to Serbia.
Experience with employer Agnes Cafe
Hours: 2.2 Number of hours per week: 40 Average tip (week): 300 Receiving orders and serving food and drinks. The first job was Agnes Cafe. There I worked as a server, and then only because it was my second time in America (hardly anyone was in the first year in America working as a server - with some exceptions). The restaurant is a family; Polish woman who was on the W & T xy years ago,got married, stayed in the USA and here now she has restaurant. The restaurant only serves breakfast and is open from 7-14h. Specific to this restaurant is that the orders are taken via the iPad and go directly to the kitchen. On the iPad is the entire menu and you literally just click example. how many eggs in what way, what kind of bread and so on. Brutal, the first time I met with that. This way of taking orders lot easier operation, but also does not help when you unconsciously make the mistake of clicking on something else while the device incorrectly cooks for you. It happens: D You card and billing is done through the iPad. The second job was at Buddakan restaurant, part of the chain Starr Restaurant which serves Asian-fusion food. The restaurant is "fine dining," where the good money and where management has a real example of what is taught in schools. There I worked as a bar back. An interesting work that is heavy work mainly on weekends (glass washing and restore clean glasses, topping bar), while on weekdays as well as the bartender, because you're in a bar with him. And in one and in another job positive atmosphere.
