manager (bartender) (Former Employee), Stillwater, OK – January 27, 2015
I absolutely loved my job. I was able to work full time take 12 hours of college and raise a small child alone. I did orders during the day and worked the bar 3 nights a week and 1 night on weekends. Did all my own planning and cleaning and then catered out for events when possible, made good money and amazing tips.Very fun environment, got alone wonderfully not only all my employees but also the upper management....Until the hotel that the bar was in sold and all upper management was let go, so I resigned.

Banquet Server (Current Employee), Beavercreek, Ohio – May 21, 2014
This job requires a lot of teamwork and communication among other co-workers. The hardest part about being a banquet server is having to deal with rude customers when a problem/solution is out of your control. I typically find a manager that can further help the customer that is upset. The most enjoyable part about banquet serving is being around the customers. I love to make their experience memorable. Seeing a smiling face and having customers appreciate your hard work, is very rewarding for me. That is what keeps me going!
Waitress (Former Employee), Simi Valley – April 9, 2014
Pros: free golfing, friendly co workers
Cons: no healthcare, poor management
prepare the food and beverage cart with necessary items to sell to the customers on the golf course throughout the day. Take custom orders back to the kitchen and deliver to customer's on the course. Co workers were always fun to be around, the hardest part of the job was the management was very up in the air.. never got a straight answer from anyone "superior" Most enjoyable part of the day was seeing how much tips you brought home.
Cabin Service Coordination (Former Employee), Disney Wonder – March 3, 2014

Outlet Manager (Current Employee), San Jose, CA – December 20, 2012
Working as a food & beverage manager at The Fairmont has been a very rewarding experience. Aside from typical management responsibilities such as scheduling, orders, budgeting, etc, i have learned so much working at a full service hotel with so many departments and requirents to fulfll the position. the most challenging aspect has been the ever changing hours and schedules, which take a toll. I have greatly enjoyed learning so much and being introduced into new areas such as event planning and sales.
