Work Experience
2013 to Current High Volume bartender Marriott International | Fresno, CA, I got promoted to working in a high volume bar that would put out the most amount of drinks out of any other bar in our restaurant. It is a whole different beast as we were the busiest and dealing with a club atmosphere instead of people dining and eating. I learned from career bartenders and was able to work efficiently and quickly in order to be successful. I had to learn the drink prices of various drinks and had to use quick mental skills to remember the prices and ingredients of many different drinks.
03/2010 to 02/2013 Bartender Treasure Island Casino | Welch, MN, Learned how to work independently as well as with other bartenders and a barback to make drinks and entertain our guests while giving them high end service. On the weekends I would work the service bar which at the time would be the busiest bar in the entire two floor restaurant. All the drinks for guests sitting down in the dining rooms would be made by just me and I would put out up to 7,000 dollars in drinks just by myself. I learned an array of drinks that we have to memorize as people expect us to know the ingredients on various drinks that are not on a drink menu. It also helped me with my people skills as we have to give guests a fun and entertaining experience while they drink and eat.
02/2009 to 03/2010 Barback Proper Hospitality | Santa Monica, CA,

Learned to work with three other people in a efficient way and to find ways to work smart in order to be able to multi task and learn how to bartend. I was able to anticipate what we would be low on and need more of while I was helping entertain guests and eventually help bartend when the other bartenders were too busy.

01/2008 to 02/2009 Busser Chef Point Restaurant & Bar | Colleyville, TX,

Worked hard and would have the biggest sections in the restaurant because they trusted my work ethic and efficiency. Learned how to manage my time and work with coworkers to reset and flip tables so that we could serve more customers and make more money.
