I am disabled and 64 years old, I am old fitness buff and belong to Planet Fitness. I ride a bicycle for now. I have an extensive criminal record, none of it involving theft. Just to put this on front street for you Jeff, I was a very wild young man, self employed sales beginning when i turned 12 in 1968. I Just finished serving 16 months for "Strangulation", my case is in appeal/Post conviction relief. This is going to be the one thing that should give you some pause. Finally in 2004 I was arrested for unlawful use of a weapon, sounds way worse than it is, I was asking a Salem Cop to shoot me with a knife with the blade covered with an edge guard. Because I am on Disability I do have some income so I can be more flexible than most on wages and hours. In general I think if you actually talk to me you will figure out what kind of person i am and if I really do have all this experience. Now as you noticed I have a brace on my right leg. I wasted my ankle in a motorcycle wreck around 1990. I gained 35 lbs and it got real bad around 2007 and by 2008 I had stopped working signed up for Vocational Rehab. That is how I ended up at PCC.
Instutional and batch cooking and short order cooking. Customer service, can wait on tables can host and wash dishes. The only job I have not done is bartender, but I already know I would be a good one. I can set up a kitchen, menu and organize all material purchases. While I am not a chef, I can make most sauces and create homestyle specials. I have excellent interpersonal skills and work will with men or women. I can count cash and think on my feet.
Opened Restaurant, prepped food as needed and prepared all meals to order including special requests. Also created and served daily specials. This is a very small establishment, the kitchen was only slightly larger than yours. We made our own biscuits from scratch, country gravy from scratch and frittatas as well. It was impressive to serve the quality of food we did, in such a tiny space.
I was a night manager for two different Denny's franchises in this century. From 2002 through 2005 I was at Denny's Mill Creek, acroos from Costco here in Salem. I worked for Jason Freeburg. As night manager I was responsible for operations from around 5pm to 2am, usually. But if a crew person did not show up for graveyard I simply did their job, waiter, cook dishwasher, all of them. I also hosted the restaurant. Controlled labor and customer service. I was very proud to have this Denny's win their only year with NO complaint calls to corporate in 2003. I then moved to Tigard and went to work for DRD, the franchise owners that probably own the most Denny's this side of the Mississipi. All the same duties, but once the District Manager realized how effective I was at rooting out issues and resolving them I became the float manager for their troubled stores. I loved it and continued until my right ankle finally got so bad I could no longer walk enough to continue that line of work.
This was a brand new build in 77 when we opened. The owner was not a restaurant person and his hiring practices rather reflected this lack of familiarity. The Guest House was extremely popular for the first few years and trun over was high. I helped create the abbreviation system for hand writing out checks, I trained and supervised the kitchen at night. Did prep, cooked orders and figured out how to manage without an established inventory of pans and utensils. It was a magnificent and wonderful struggle, loved Don brockman himself and the entire crew. It was here that I really came to my own in just about any environment. Now in addition to what I have listed I would add that I have 2 years with Mazzi's in Corvallis before they opened on South Commercial around 1981, I also opened Chelsea's on South Commercial in Salem for a couple of years 82-84 before moving to Arizona. In Arizona I worked every posistion except General Manager over 16 years in various Arizona Communities over the next 16 years.
I am an avid reader and learned a great deal about researching information in my college courses, I believe that politics is far more important than the average person I know. So I spend a lot of my free time perusing news sources from all over the world. I am a liberal by nature, so I tend to caucus with the Democrats. I also love history, secular and religious, this is a ready heavy hobby, I have managed a working man's grasp of all the world's religions. In the end, I am not set on my beliefs and appreciate faith itself far more than beliefs. It will be a chuckle if you ask me to explain that.
