Working Holiday in Japan! Ep4 〜Working in a Restaurant〜
Working in a cafe is also a catering job just as working in a restaurant that introduced before, but what is the difference in the specific work duties? What is it like to work in a Japanese cafe?
Generally there are 3 types of positions in chain cafes:
The key responsibility of staffs at the checkout counter is taking customers' orders → collecting money → delivering drinks and foods.
The job of staffs in charge of foods is to make drinks and prepare light meals.
The job of cleaning is to wash all the cups and dishes used by the customers.
These are roughly the job duties in chain cafes. Because it is easier to make drinks and light meals, working in a cafe may make people feel a little easier than in a restaurant. If you like coffee and want to make a drink, you must take the challenge!
