Summary

Experienced server with a bubbly personality and great with all variations of personality’s. I have 5+ years in the foodservice industry as a server. I have a excellent track record of tackling various tasks to support great customer service, kitchen and wait staff. I demonstrate genuine hospitality to establish rapport with patrons and deliver memorable experiences, so they leave wanting to come again. I am also a team player. I truly believe you have to work as a team helping eachother when we can. I always give respect and help my coworkers when needed as I would hope to get in return. I’m also a stickler at keeping my side work kept up with throughout my shift to help to never run out of what I’m responsible for as well as help fill other coworkers obligations if I see it needs done because were a team and we should always work like it. I also like to keep up with my side work throughout my shift, so at the end of my shit I don’t have a long list of side work that still needs done. I’m a people person as well as a kind of people pleaser so I like to make sure I leave my customers completely satisfied as well as my team members knowing I’m someone they can count on to help.
