Red Lobster in Norridge, IL. is a very energetic work environment; learning communication skills and positive work ethics every day is a routine that is much appreciated as well as expected daily. In the year that I've worked in the restaurant industry, I've learned to build extraordinary communication skills as well as much about work ethics in itself. Knowing how to do not only my job as hostess, on a daily basis I would ask how to do other jobs, such as serving, working in the kitchen, and management. As far as management goes, I have never had managers as impressive as the ones at Red Lobster in Norridge, IL. My managers are hard working, great leaders, understanding, fantastic multi-taskers, and are teaching me to follow in their footsteps soon, as I plan to become a manager as soon as I can. The co-workers are also hard workers, as they can multi-task at impressive speeds and improve their memory and socialization skills daily. The hardest part of my job was training new hosts while simultaneously doing my job and helping others, as doing so many things at once and maintaining happy customers is a challenge in and of itself. However, the most enjoyable part of the job was the respect I had earned from not only the other hosts, but with servers, kitchen pros, and management. I do not only do my job, I help others as well, but not at the cost of setting myself back. The restaurant I had worked at was one big team, and we always pride ourselves in how hard we work, because at the end of the day it's about how we satisfy the customers and keep our business as well organized as possible.
