Working with sushi is fun but it is a lot of work!
Sushi Demo (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – 23 April 2018
I mostly do food demos so I interact with the customers five days a week. 7 hours a day. I have tried working in the back but it is a lot of prep work. Cutting vegetables, shelling shrimp, rolling spring rolls, packaging sauces, packaging pot stickers, cooking pot stickers, etc. Unless you have really good stamina working the hours for prep is very tiring and exhausting.
Sushi demoing is fun depending on how slow or busy the day is. You do meet a lot of people and get to interact with them. It is a great feeling seeing customers come back for a product you recommended. Sushi demo requires you to interact with customers, take special orders, inform sushi chefs of missing items, and keeping the display neat and orderly.
