Im a waitress as well and I hate it. The environment is toxic. All the other servers do is gossip about each other and the managers are shit who dont care about anything! I’m looking for another job but I dread going to work everyday. Everyone also has their own way of doing things. The older servers are the worst. Always greedy with tables and want everything done their way. It’s ridiculous.

Yep. My waitressing job lasted less than a year. They singled me out, picked on me, had “cliques.” It was just terrible and left me scared that every job was going to be this way! I will never be a waitress ever again. I will never understand what I ever did – I was good at my job and am an easy person to get along with. You know it is time for a change when you wake up with dread of going to work.

I have been a bartender/waitress for about 3 years and I have had terrible times and great times. I’ve had horrible bosses and customers that turned an epic situation into a nightmare and I couldn’t wait to leave that place. My next experience was with wonderful bosses and staff and it was the best job in the world! My philosophy is that if you work hard to treat the customers well and also do your best to communicate with coworkers the way they expect, then you will be respected in the job. Unfortuately it sounds like there isn’t one right way you should be doing stuff, so it makes it hard for you! 

I would just try to be as nice as possible to coworkers and just tell them that I’m confused about how they want things done. I would also be looking for another waitressing job elsewhere. My strategy is to eat at the place where I’m looking to apply and watch how the staff/managers act. I can usually tell if the staff look happy or not. If they look like they’re being micromanaged and don’t have any autonomy that’s also a bad sign. I love organisational culture so this sort of work-environment talk fascinates me!

I dunno. I’m sort of struggling with the idea of you being a victim here considering you’ve posted about being a nanny and telling parents to their face how shitty they were at it.
