Have you gone on a date with a customer?

Yes and no I guess? I don't ever give my number out at work or go on dates with guests. But one time I was working as a GEC and met a guy and after my shift we started and talked for a while.

Seems you really enjoy working at BWW, why? What about it makes you like it? I don't mean it in a rude or condescending way, honestly curious. I would never want to stay in a retail customer service type position. In fact, it makes me happy knowing my last foray into it (barring some crazy multi-discipline catastrophe) was a decade ago. I'm not above it, if I had to I would, but man did I hate any retail work.

Hey, I do really love working at BWW! Like any job it has it's ups and downs, but the ups for me really out weigh the downs. I've worked in a few other restaurants and I learned I LOVE working in the food industry. I love the fast paced shifts. I love that I meet new people and talk about so many cool things every day. I love that I don't have to pack a lunch for work or leave to get food . I love that serving has taught me to be able to stand up for myself, especially when I started serving alcohol. I could go on and on about the food industry. But what set bdubs apart for me was the family atmosphere. We literally use the word team everyday. The sporty atmosphere is much more fun and energetic than any other restaurant I've worked at. We have 96 tvs in my store! I love when a big sporting event is on and the whole restaurant jumps up and sings their teams fight song. Or people standing on their chairs getting so into the atmosphere we have created for them. I love that bdubs prioritizes community outreach. Anywhere there is a BWW, there is a form of outreach (like a sponsored team). We also do a lot of fundraising for the Boys and Girls Club of America and Special Olympics and many more.

I usually got to BWW 2-3 a week. I love it and usually just grab 10 hot since I have tried pretty much everything there. 2 questions. In my experience, the dining area is so much slower than the bar area. Is there a reason for that? (every single BWW I have been to in Utah is like this) As a regular I try to be as courteous as possible to everyone working there. Is there something that you guys dread from a customer or customers?

There is no correlation between bar and dining area speed wise, maybe just bad luck honestly, and yes we HATE people who are incredibly picky with wings. If it's too wet, not enough sauce, especially when you want people who get crispy wings. They are the absolute worst because if it's not crispy enough u have to remake the whole order and it just gets frustrating. Then they want wet and crispy which is literally impossible because the sauce makes them not crispy anymore

Are the waitresses there forced to flirt with customers?

I'm betting this guy also didn't work a service job ever. Waitstaff everywhere flirts always because it's money in the bank. You are not special

Not to say that your job is easy, especially on weekends or during sporting events, but would you consider BWW a good starting point for someone with little to no restaurant cooking experience?

Yes. It's very easy and requires little to no thought (besides the grill/southwest station) all you really need to know how to do is count to 20 and spin ur arm in a circle and drop stuff in a fryer and hit the color coded button for the item

Have you ever witnessed an employee spit in a customer's food due to the customer being drunk and/or rude?

Surprisingly no.. I have seen many people that truly deserved it.
November 24, 2015 on Reddit

How much nookie goes on between the employees?

I slept with a sever a greeter and made out with a manager. That might say something about what goes on... ;)
November 24, 2015 on Reddit

What's the most chicken wings ordered by a single customer?

our biggest in store order for one person was 110 hot wings for a single person. They finished the all in 30-40 minutes plus 3 beers. Biggest order over all was 6400 wings during a natural disaster in my home town that we made for media, police, EMS, and fire-fighters. I had a photo of everyone who stayed at work to do that order somewhere. doubt I will find it tho...

How often do cooks spit or ejaculate in the food they prepare for customers?

I have never seen anyone spit in the food...
November 24, 2015 on Reddit

Woah I work there too! Do you guys have a gec program? Because I'm a greeter/cashier/gec and I think the gec program is pointless.

I was a GEC for a few months. As far as I know it is a Canadian BWW program only. It was the easiest job in the whole place by far.

Did/could you provide less or more food depending on if you like a customer?

Most of the food was already pre-portioned in the morning so giving less food was never really a thing. I do however have a couple of instances where we may have tampered with food. At BWW we had a wing eating challenge. 10 wing in the hottest sauce. (sidenote, if this sauce would sit for too long it would begin to sepirate like salad dressing. it would separate into the red sauce base and the habanero extract) I was in the kitchen at the time and a server came back to let us know that a table of 5 guys had all ordered the challenge but one guy at the table was being an *** hole and bragging about how he would finish faster then the store record that was held by a professional eater. So we mixed the first 4 of the challenges normally. However for the *** holes plate we mixed the wings in the sauce but then drizzled some of the habanero extract on his wings and let the server know that plate was for him. A few minutes later we heard the server do the countdown for them to start and we waited. it only took about 30 seconds before we heard the guy get up and run to the bathroom whilst swearing the whole way. His friends thanked the server for making him look like a *** in front of a couple other girls in the bar he was aggressively hitting on.

How does the remote overtime system work? You know, the thing that gets the game to last longer if the customers want to stay out a little later? Seems kinda sketchy for the NFL to let you do that.

Always dodging the tough questions... Typical AMA.

Worst customer and why?

I had a guy come in once and he ordered a Manhattan double. Then another and another within about 30 minutes. My bartender told me he was going to cut him off because the guy was being a jerk in general. When he got cut off, he was angry and asked to pay his tab. The only thing is, he didn't have any form of payment (his only cards were ATM cards and wouldn't go through my credit card machine.) I informed him he would need to pay his $80 in some way or another, and he was very intoxicated and started to act belligerent. He tried to take a nap on the floor of the bar and told me to "call the cops" so that's what i did. When the police showed up, I found out this dude just drives around the town i work in and drinks himself into oblivion, and gets the cops called on him almost every night because he has no money to pay his tab. He was not super fun to deal with. Also had two dudes on a UFC who were so drunk they were falling asleep on the bar. We refused to serve them, and they tried to fight me and another manager before throwing up all over the floor and being escorted out of the building by the police.
July 23, 2015 on Reddit

During your 6 years of working with BWW, did you ever come across any problems work wise, or with other employees?

I had a kid break my car window when i first started because i didn't know the girl who's house i was at was his girlfriend. I think that was probably the biggest one.
July 23, 2015 on Reddit

Are your employees on minimum wage?and have you ever fired anyone?

I've fired a lot of people. Various reasons. It's the restaurant industry. And the employees are generally compensated based on their skill, and what they can bring to the table. A lot start off on minimum, but if they prove themselves, it's not hard to get a raise
July 23, 2015 on Reddit

How does this job affect your social life?

Well, I've made some really really good friends over the years. It helps that a lot of them work the same schedules that I do. When i was a cook there would be parties at my apartment after the shift every night. Now that I'm a manager (and a little older) it's usually just me a couple other people drinking a few beers once all is said and done. So i guess the answer is a positive one.
July 23, 2015 on Reddit

what's your salary?

not enough.

When u started as a line cook did you want to one day be manager? Also having being managed there, how does that effect how you manage your employees now?

It definitely wasn't what i wanted to do, in fact they asked me 3 times before I finally decided to take the position. As I was coming around the corner to being 23 with no college degree, it seemed like I needed to pad my qualifications for future jobs with something. It's definitely different being in a position of power, when 2 years ago I was the cook making fun of managers. I'm still learning the best methods of management, so i can get the most out of my employees, but that they also respect me.

I work with a two girls who were previously waitresses/hostesses at BWW, and they told me that it is the worst place to work. Maybe it was this particular BWW or is it a common agreement amongst waitresses/hostesses?

I feel like it could be pretty bad. One server told me about this old guy who likes coming in and making innuendos to the point they're uncomfortable. I think many, if not all, of them get hit on a lot. That being said, you can make a fair amount of money doing it. Many people bring in over $100 on the weekends in tips alone, plus the hourly they earn. Were they complaining about other staff/management or customers?
