New Bohemia, Roseville
This is my first experience FOH. I was a cook for 12 years.
I like working with the local breweries—there are 180
breweries here. The worst part? When you hand someone
a menu and they put it down, go over and look at all the tap
handles and say, ‘Do you have…..?”

Trung Nam French Bakery
The best part is bringing a smile to the faces of little
kids (although if they sell out of their craveable croissants
before noon, there’s no smiling). Getting up at 3 in the morning, that’s the worst part.
Years in the industry: 1 1/2
Smack Shack, Minneapolis
The worst is dealing with rude people. We’re like the
customer service desk. The good is that it’s a pretty casual
job and you know everyone (front and back of the house),
that’s not always the case.
Years in the industry: 10
Fairgrounds Coffee & Tea, Minneapolis
The best part is the people. The regulars are fun. Also
the hours aren’t long …but the money could be better.
There’s always room to improve.
Industry experience: 7 months
The best part of my job is seeing people leave here
happy. The worst part is when we get busy and can’t accommodate that special request like a table by the window, because we’re busy.
