i started a new job about a month ago, as a server in a restaurant. so here is the deal, im a great server, im tentative and thorough, not just with my tables but also with my cleaning responsibilities. i have been a "closer" since my first night on the floor. i like closing, most of the time it means i make a little more money, because i stay the latest. it also means i have to check my co-workers out to make sure they do their work. i am very non-confrontational. i have let the others know what my expectations are as far as the work goes- make sure you fill the stuff on your tables- salt, pepper, etc...and do your designated side work, EX: cover the desserts and take throw out old coffee filters- nothing too time consuming or complex, but people are always trying to skip out on me. they leave without rolling silverware, or wiping things down. if they are supposed to clean the soda machine, they will not take out...Answer Question

To be honest being there only a month and you are telling those who have been there longer what to do can rub folks the wrong way. Not to say you are wrong for pointing it out, I'm just saying it could rub them the wrong way. I've been in that predicament where a new hire started telling me how to do my job and I politely told her I appreciate the help but I think I can handle it. I wasn't rude or at least I didn't mean to be but it irritated me.

I agree with you but you need to bring it up to the managers and let them deal with it. It sucks I know, but you will be ridiculed because you intimidate them.

I know how you feel believe me. You sound like a very strong individual and would be great management material. I managed for a time where I work now but I chose not to because I don't want to chose work over my children (which sometimes ends being the case) but maybe in the future when they are older. You do what you think is best as far as getting things done.
