    Pros

    When working at Wahaca everyone was very friendly and was always there to give you a helping hand if needed. Waitresses/ servers can also earn tips, meaning you can earn some extra money. Working with a new variety of people and working with customers to ensure they enjoy their experience.

    Cons

    The job can be stressful on very busy nights, but that happens with every job therefore cannot be helped.
