Lead stewards

Hi! After some time wondering on the restaurants of Miami as a dishwasher, I finally got the dream job of any stress eater as me; I’m a lead steward at a great hotel company in Miami Beach, and the interesting part of it is that while I work for my own department (Stewarding), my job is to coordinate between banquet captains and cooks (mostly chefs). That’s mean my job is very stress full but addictive because that, or at least that’s what I like of it; maybe because I’m a very independent and executive person, and this job just fit with it. I love it any way, and there I have meet some wonderful persons, from simple team members to managers. Of course, there is son crap too, but the joy is more!

Sounds like a rags to riches success story in the making Ignaciot. That's Awesome! Dishwasher to lead Steward. How did you make it happen? Can you identify one determining behavior or action that helped you land that new job? Keep doing what you're doing and best of luck with the new job.

Thanks, I really make nothing, just work, it could be that I'm very energetic and a stress eater, so I work good under stress. I think that's important in the hospitality industry, because despite what people says it's not a romantic landscape, it's a harsh world. I also have some luck, and a couple of good and smart managers that push me through my own job, and allow me to expand. That's just why I'm on the look now, because I finally crash with the wall and I want to continue, but I think that the only trick is enjoy what you do. By the way, is not that big step from dishwasher to lead steward, not every body can do it but it's a small step. Thanks for the compliment.
