What are some personal touches you've found to be helpful when building a relationship with a customer?
I think a lot of times we forget just how great it is to receive a handwritten thank-you note! In the last retail position I held, we were required to write a thank-you note to each customer who spent over a certain dollar amount. This was a strategy I chose to adopt when I opened up my online store, but I try to write a handwritten note for every order.
What are some other personal touches you've found to be helpful when building a relationship with a customer?
I worked for an insurance rep who would personally deliver everyone's policy. Most reps would mail them or deliver them only if it was a big policy. But my boss would deliver each one not matter the amount. I think this was really appreaciated by his clients.
Quick, call and set up appointment through your local work source or state welfare department. It's better to go in if applicable. Find out operational hours. You need and deserve help! May God Bless You...
It may be a ridiculous subject to discuss, but since the pandemic hit us, many people left the restaurant industry, and new people started working in restaurants.
We all witnessed that restaurants were hiring last summer in desperately. Most restaurants lower their experience expectations for hiring people to join their restaurant teams.
I have experience as a customer and as a server, and that server didn’t course it up dishes. Nobody wants to have their apps and main dishes on at the same time at their table. As a server, this is our job to course it up for them and help their dinner experience be enjoyable and smooth.
These subjects matter for bistro and fine-dining-style restaurants. Once in a while, I come up with tables that they wanted to be sure I won’t bring all dishes at the same time.
Also, some people may share a bunch of dishes like tapas style. I don’t recommend you order more than two-three dishes to the table same time. It makes them feel like rushing dinner.
Every table has a different pace! Some customers prefer to eat their meal and keep their experience short. On the other hand, some customers meet their friends and take their time while enjoying their meal.
As a server, we should be able to read their customer needs and make our service exclusive. I believe this kind of attitude helps you get better tips.
Would you prefer to course it up orders for your tables? Please, share your experience and opinion with comments! We will grow by sharing our experiences!
I actually prefer my appetizers & drinks first & usually that's how my meal is served but I've been to restaurants where I've been asked my preference which is cool too.
If I'm waiting for others to join us it's nice to have appetizers early on. There have been times when even with a reservation the wait time is longer than expected & I'm starving by the time we're seated so yeah, bring on those nummys!
Always be looking for online training classes in-between jobs. I was in technology sales for a long time, there were always new courses to better your education.

This question keeps coming up, I thought I would post the question to the community. Would rather work 4 - 10 hour shifts or 5 - 8 hour Shifts? Why?
4 10 hour shifts
Sometimes we get unsolicited feedback about our career, especially during the holiday seasons 😅. I cannot tell you how many times I've been told by my relatives to focus on the jobs that make more money but has nothing to do with my personal interests or strengths hahaha.
The most important thing is to focus on ourselves and not get distracted by these noises. Remember to focus on what serves you and eliminate whatever doesn't! On the other hand, be more considerate when you're giving others advice too!
What advice did you find unhelpful and you were glad that you totally ignored 🙃?
- 🤔 There's only one way to success (w/ specific job choice or work pattern)
- 😮 You need to tough it up and stop complaining
- 💯 You must have done something wrong to be treated that way at work
I’m a hard worker, but I don’t understand why I can’t get a job. I can’t stand for a long time but that doesn’t stop me from trying to help me self.
@Kevin Seals First you would need to study for a Class A. Study guide can be found on the DMV site. Take the general knowledge test which is 50 questions, pass it get your permit. After you get the permit enroll in trucking school. Trucking school cost $3,000 and it’s 27 classes 1 hour each. Once you complete the classes they will schedule you for the drive test. You’ll also need a DOT physical exam at an urgent care before you take your permit test. DMV will ask you for that. Generally cost $100.
