    Idk. I'm not a service industry homosexual. However I bought a bar and held it for a few years before selling and I never minded doing the dishes when the lazy tramps that worked for me were in the weeds.

    I thought you were asking if working with a dipshit is bad and I was gonna tell you to ask your coworkers.

        you could if the the restaurant owner values your skills, dish washing is no fricking joke. Sure you have slow times but when shit hits the fan, you better be on top of your game or the whole kitchen is gonna hate your ass.

          Dishwashers I've worked with have been either
          >ex convicts
          >bored teenagers who put in minimal effort
          >people disgruntled with bad treatment in other industries who somehow ended up in it
          >illegal immigrants

          The most effective are the cons and immigrants. When I was 18 I worked the pit with two felons and one disgruntled ex prison guard, which was funny and sometimes terrifying. But they could get the job done. Current place has mostly teenage girls that I assume the owner is fricking/trying to frick, but I don't ask questions.

          This is very true. In the restaurant business, anyone who is reliable and not a druggie burnout or actively wanted by the law is already in a strong bargaining position with their employer, and fancy or not dishwashing is really fricking important. If you're good at it you really can leverage it.

    It's moronicly easy.
    Just wear your gloves, shut the frick up, and clean.
    Kinda sad how pathetic this generation has become. They cannot even wash dishes without crying like homosexuals.

    Am I the only one who actually likes to do the dishes? I mean for myself only not as a job, but taking 10 minutes to take off grease and make stuff shiny is mentally satisfying

    It's super comfy, if it didn't destroy my skin I would do the job for life. There's nothing like getting in the zone while listening to music or whatever on some headphones and just scrubbing away. The whole world and all your troubles disappear and it's just you and the bubbles. It's better than meditation.

    It's fricking comfy at an amusement park. During slow times we talk shit about guests and learn about each other to be more effectively racist. Everyone else in the kitchen doesn't care if things don't get properly cleaned because they see how slammed it can get sometimes.

    When I worked as a dishwasher, I replaced some Mexican guy. All the cooks were upset because they knew I would suck compared to him. Sure enough, I did. He warned me on day one not to put pots on a high shelf. All he said was “boom”. I had no idea what he meant. I put pots on the high shelf anyway. One day they all came crashing down on top of me. The worst part though was how I could not keep up with the cooks, they yelled at me, and so the Mexican guy came back. True story.

      They do, and they get incredibly hot but they still don't get everything off.

    Hey OP. It really depends. I worked the dish pit a handful of times in my 18 years of working in the restaurant industry. First job was washing dishes also. Anyway yeah it really depends. How busy it is/volume size of the restaurant = more dishes. how the restaurant is run, ive worked in places where i didnt get out until 1:30am when the cooks where long gone around midnight. but I was young and didnt give a shit really. just work hard and fast, listen to some music, toke up/take a smoke break when you can. Hopefully the cooks/managment are cool and will cook you a free meal and give you a beer at the end of the night. Some of the worst experiences washing dishes were italian restaurants, the ones i worked at where super fricking busy and that food would just cake on, lots of scrubbing, especially baked on marinera sauce from the steam well marinaira and sautee pans. that was the place wer i wouldnt get out until 130 am also. The best place i worked at washing dishes was a sushi restaurant. The food would literally slide off with just spraying before the machine, also the head chef was big on having ht ecooks, or whoever helping out the dishwasher at the end of the night on a busy shift, even if its just running/putting dclean dishes...that was the shit for sure.
    Also if you bust your ass washing dishes it might give you an opportunity to move up in the restaurant, get your foot in the door. Anyway, good luck out there and be safe.

    it was the best place to be in the restaurant. everyone generally leaves you alone to do your work because they're scared you'll get mad and walk out which would result in them having to do it
