Qdoba - Server
Berry Hill, TN, 11/2021 - 04/2022

Operated at a Burger and Beer establishment that was located right at the base of the biggest Skiable Mountain in America. High-volume would be somewhat of an understatement.

Maintain Menu Knowledge including Allergies, specifications about Beer and Cocktails, food pairings, desert options, and everything inbetween.

Greeted and took care of all my guests needs, which sometimes even included helping direct them around the resort, helping with Ski gear, and all around keeping the place flowing with happy guests.

Created an atmosphere that allowed guests freedom to try different pairing options for food and beer, desert and liquor, and a variety of dining experiences each individual guest was searching for.

Operated a POS Terminal with ease, handled cash and credit card tips with the upmost respect when paying guests out at their request.

Handled food safely and kept areas clean to protect guests from foodborne illnesses. Maintained proper sanitation in the work environment.

Monitored dining rooms for safety and customer needs, upholding high standards for service and experiences.

Met or exceeded 'sale goals' on consistent basis with proactive promotional strategies and dessert recommendations.

Discussed dining menu information to aid in decision process for senior residents and/or people with food sensitivities or allergies.

Qdoba - Server
Goodlettsville, TN, 04/2021 - 09/2022

Greeted each and every table within an allotted time frame, while handling a 5 table section in a high-volume restaurant where my nightly sales were anywhere from $1600-$3000 on any given night.

I worked at a brewery so it was critical to know all the rotating beers and how they were all made. We have 10 Taps which all had our own in-house brewed beer which I became familiar with.

Handling the guests drink and food order on a hand-held device, I was able to find out if we had any one item in stock at any given moment.

The menu was large and consisted of flat-breads, burgers, main entrees, bar snacks, starters, deserts, soups and salads, all of which I memorized and was able to speak easily on diet information when questions surfaced.

Completed daily 'running side work' which consisted of sorting and rolling silver wear, cleaning service stations, cutting fruit, sweeping and mopping, stocking cups and keeping water carafes filled.

Promoted drinks, deserts, and any specials we had to optimize sales for myself and the restaurant.

Worked efficiently with a well diverse team that included people from all over the world.

Alaska Denali Travel - Server/Bartender
Seward, AK, 11/2018 - 04/2021

Maintained a minimum of 8 tables of guests, where I upsold items from our food and beverage menu.

Monitored the intoxication of each and every guest who has had any alcoholic beverage. Also oversaw the quality of food coming out of the kitchen to my tables, always making sure I was serving the highest quality of food we can offer.

Garnishing dishes and quickly delivering the items to the guests in a timely manner.

Check identification to enforce age regulations for alcoholic beverages.

Help organize the restaurant so steps of service would become a more natural and fluid process (back area where servers get drinks, make coffee, brew tea, etc.) Always kept clean and well maintained throughout the shift.

Kept my register at an even balance throughout the shift while making change for other servers and guests. Collected credit card and cash payments, inputting the correct information into the our system tp track items sold, money made, etc.

Worked with the managers to transition into some of the changes of Covid-19 (Removing tables, re-organizing the Dining-Room to better suite our guests, and getting the cleaning protocols up to date.)

Applied comprehensive knowledge of wine, spirits, and beer as well as appropriate pairings to help increase sales for myself and the restaurant.

Promoted a clean, safe, and fun work environment for myself and others around me.

At times, I would also be the only server on the floor so I would also greet the guests, take them to their dining area, take the order, make the drinks, run the food, and clean the table. Chili's is a brand that does not have any "Bussers" so the servers are a one man wrecking crew that takes care of all steps of service.
