Banquet Serving & Beverage Cart
Banquet Server (Current Employee), Beavercreek, OhioMay 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 – more... 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! – less

Working as a food & beverage manager at The Fairmont has been a very rewarding experience.

Service Crew (Former Employee), Greenwich, ENGFebruary 8, 2014
Pros: free meal
Cons: short hours of duty
I've learned how to better myself in a customer service representitive position. Managment seems to know what they are doing and have everything under control. The hardest part of the job would probably have to be serving, especially when it is very busy. The most enjoyable part of the job would have to be taking the orders and identifying with customers.

SUPERVISOR (Former Employee), Dubai, United Arab EmiratesDecember 13, 2013
Pros: bonus
Cons: long hours
Supervisor usually lead other team members because they understand the expectations of higher management and how to meet or exceed these goals. They're not only responsible for getting the most from the other employees by inspiring and motivating them, but they must also maintain the smooth running of the store or business during their shifts. Supervisors – more... work directly alongside employees to accomplish tasks.

Maintaining good working relationships with the other team members is something supervisor need to do. This may be challenging if some of the employees feel jealous or resentful that they weren't chosen for the job. It can also be difficult when a new supervisor from outside the Hotel is brought in, since it may take some time for a work team to mesh well together. The best supervisor can empathize with the other workers while also inspiring them to perform well on the job – less
