Pros: free lunch, summer position to gain experience
Cons: stand up for three to four hour at a time, only thirty minute breaks
A typical day at work involved monitoring and recording dining hall reservations, ensuring customer service met customer’s satisfaction, and served beverages and prepared the salad, fruit, and dessert bar.
I learned the proper way to set a table, the proper way to serve the guest, how to be more attentive and quickly get the job done in a short amount of time.
Management were awesome very approachable, understanding, and attentive to guest and employees.
Co-works were helpful to quickly train me as a hostess. Working as a team allowed everyone to complete their duties.
The hardest part of this job was preparing five or six tables for two lunches with a thirty minute grace period in between. As well as preparing coffee, salad, fruit, and dessert bar.
The most enjoyable part of this job was bring joy and laughter to the elderly. While listening to the veterans tell old stories.
