Enjoyable atmosphere with good employees
Front of House Host / Server (Former Employee) – Bluffton, SC – April 14, 2016
A typical day at work for me would begin at the start of the evening shift. I would make sure that everything in the dining area (dressings, cups or other drink related items, bathrooms, etc) was fully stocked and I would ensure that the dining area was clean before the dinner rush began. I would switch between taking orders at the register, serving food to customers, and busing tables. I usually would also close out the restaurant, which included cleaning out drink containers, disinfecting all counters and tables, refilling all dressing bottles, ensuring other dining area items were stocked, cleaning all windows, cleaning bathrooms, and sweeping/mopping the floors.
I learned how to effectively maintain contact between customers, management, and staff in order to ensure that customers' concerns and dining details were handled properly. I also learned how to manage my time to ensure that all closing responsibilities were done in the most efficient manner.
The co-workers, while not always the most formal, were always kind and polite to customers and always fun to work with. They consistently did what was required of them, which made what was required of me much easier.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the type of food that we served. I enjoyed saying that I worked at a restaurant proud of, and known for, their healthy menu items, and I enjoyed talking to customers about having a healthier option in the local area.
