Skilled at greeting guests and making sure their experience is enjoyable. 5 years of restaurant experience between two different locations. Responsible for welcoming guests as well as answering phone-calls and any questions about the restaurant. First and last interaction the guests had while in the restaurant. Responsible for assisting guess in ordering their food as well as answering any and all food or park related questions. Helped make sure guests had the best and most magical experience they could possibly have all while just eating one meal.

I think the most important part about working in customer service is being friendly. This includes big hellos and big goodbyes. I believe that a first impression is crucial to the success of an establishment so greeting every guest with a nice warm welcome will ensure customer satisfaction. Of course along with a big greeting the service itself should be nothing short of amazing. I want the guest to feel comfortable ordering interacting with me. My work environment will be full of smiles and friendliness to make sure that the guest will keep on coming again and again.
