The slowest time of the year

Its after the holidays and everything is slowing down. The restaurant industry slows to a crawl. This dosn't mean we don't have to work as hard. In fact being in a management position we have to work harder.
Now we have to cut labor and run with a skeleton crew so if we get busy we get screwed in a sense. This means we have to run around and make the restaurant run with the least amount of staff as possible.
If tables don't get cleaned quick enough I have to clean tables. If the food isn't getting cooked fast enough I have to cook and if tables aren't getting waited on fast enough I have to assist the servers.
Everyone has to work a little bit harder when we get busy due to labor cuts but the busy periods only last a couple hours this time of year and we mostly remain slow.

I had not thought about the post holiday issues. You normally think of that happening to retailers because the seasonal hiring is more noticeable for them.

I'm a small business owner that sales an online employee scheduling software. I'm looking for a few managers to give it a test drive and provide feedback on how it works. In exchange I'd give away 6 months of free service.

If you are interested you can email me at chris@webworkschedules.com or visit my site at www.webworkschedules.com. I hope you will take me up on the offer.

Thanks,
Chris Exline

This is the first time I comment on your site, but I've been reading your posts for about a moth. I admire the passion with which you tell your stories and dream that someday I can do the same. Love

I can definitely understand your frustrations. I worked at a University Bookstore for a while and we had the same problem....no one cares if we exist as long as they have their books. I appreciate what you were saying about being in a management position. I'm using some distance learning software so that I can become a regional manager for my company. It's hard work and it will only get harder, but it's good to know that there are some rewards! Thanks!
