There is only one other person who has worked at Marco’s as long as I have. She and I both started working there when the restaurant opened in 1993. I came over from the Philippines in 1980. I worked at the Hyatt in Lahaina, doing landscaping during my first 13 years on Maui.
Then Marco’s opened up and was closer to my home. I knew it was going to be a really nice restaurant so I applied and have been there ever since.
I work as a busser during the day and a dishwasher during the night. I always like my job but I enjoy bussing a little more. The people I work with are really nice. The owners and managers all treat me like family. They make me feel very comfortable. The food is great as well.
We serve pasta and grilled food. My favorite dish is the seafood pasta. Customers enjoy the food we provide and the way we make them feel. It makes me feel proud to be part of such a great company. We make a lot of people’s day.
I have only had two jobs in Maui but I like working for Marco’s the best and plan on being there for a long time. I will work for the next 10 to 15 years, then I will retire from the restaurant business and from Marco’s. MTW
