Just a quick update:
The restaurant job finally started Saturday, and it looks like there are even more problems. When I was hired, I was told I needed to start as a server before I could be a bartender. This was fine with me, since I don’t have any previous experience in either area. Yesterday, I noticed I was listed as a host in the computer system. I never, ever agreed to being a host. If they told me from the beginning that I had to start as a host, I would have told them to forget it. I have more than enough retail experience and kitchen confection experience to handle going straight to being a server. Also, this is a casual dining restaurant–not the best place to host. The manager said he would check into it and let me know. Hopefully, this will be resolved today.
