After the pandemic, many people left and entered the hospitality industry. It would be nice if we all share our experiences with these new restaurant workers.❤️🧑🍳💰⌛💸
Arrive early ⌛ It allows you to be ready on the floor. Also, it shows you care and respect your job.
Introduce yourself 🙋 introduce yourself to your new coworkers. You are going to work with these people.
Memorize the table numbers 🤦 I memorize the first and last table numbers in the row. It is easier and faster to learn.
Smile all the time 😁 I don't know why it is harder to smile during my lunch shifts. Fake it until making it! Make yourself smile as much as you can.
What do you need to know before your first day working at a restaurant? Please, share your experience in the comment. 💬
Anticipate all your customers needs they have ff bring ketchup Order food bring extra napkins I promise you will make a lot of money don’t forget to refill drinks without being asked
Make sure your hair is completely up. Never touch it or your face at anytime in the public. If you do excuse your self and go wash your hands with soap. Be ready to listen and learn there way. Do not talk about your personal life with anyone. SMILE. All the time. Don’t forget to get the extra stuff the customer ask for…. Like extra dressing on the side. Know the menu and what’s in the entrees. Make every customer SPECIAL….
Put your self in their shoes. If you would not eat it why would you serve it? But remember you are not a slave.
just know what the policy is and what the customer want be your self it's hard good luck
Hours and operations
I worked at a Family restaurant and a chain restaurant. The biggest problem servers today are not going back to the table every few minutes to check on customer! It is most annoying when your server comes back and your already done….so be a good server and go back to your table and ask how they are and if they need anything as well as clear off any plates that are used!!!’ Always Always tell your customers your name!!!
CUSTOMER SERVICE- verb, - showing appreciation via service and care in which is displayed by the service member to the customer.
Don’t just fake a smile, them people ain’t do nothing to you, and your check, tip, etc. is thanks to their patronizing.
Happy job hunting 🏹
A good thing to do is ask for anything that might have any allergy information.
The health department rules and your own boss's additional ones, if any.
Treat every person with respect and kindness.
Cater to the customers! You are the Hospitality and bring joy and happiness to all!
