My first job was assisting people in rural Jefferson Davis County Mississippi to make "something out of nothing". My job was with the County Extension Service and I loved it. $1.00 per hour was the salary!

โœจ WHAT SUPPLIES DO YOU NEED TO START RESTAURANT WORK?? โœจ

Last week I wrote a post about the gripping power of Shoes For Crews, an essential part of a Server or Chefs Uniform. ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ But what else do you need to work in a Restaurant?!? We all have our preferences, and I see questions about what supplies are needed to start this kind of work all the time! If you're new to #FoodServices, here are some tips on what to bring!๐Ÿคต๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿฝโ€๐Ÿณ

The #1 most coveted item by Servers is their favorite pens! ๐Ÿ–Š For Bartenders, their favorite bottle opener. ๐Ÿท And Chefs, their own personal knife kit. ๐Ÿ”ช ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿณ

Normally when you start, the Restaurant itself will give you a few basic supplies, but there are some you will need to buy on your own or bring from home. โœ๏ธ๐Ÿ–Š If there are lockers in the Staff area for purses and bags, you will have to get a combination lock for those to keep your valuables safe. ๐Ÿ”’๐Ÿ’ธ

In addition to Non-Slip Shoes, you may need to adhere to guidelines about what you can wear for pants and shirts also. ๐Ÿ‘–๐Ÿ‘š They may provide you with a branded uniform shirt, or ask that you stick to a certain color range. ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ’™ The worst case scenario is working at a Restaurant that has an expensive uniform that they require you to buy, maybe with a small employee discount. ๐Ÿ’ธ

In your apron you will need to carry cash and coins to make change for checks, and use to tip out fellow workers. ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿช™ ๐Ÿ’ต Sometimes youโ€™ll have access to a cash register and can use that to make change or complete transactions with checks - but it is important to have cash on you to make your own change in a pinch! ๐Ÿค‘ Plus youโ€™ll likely have cash from your tips, that youโ€™ll be keeping in your apron anyway!! ๐Ÿ’ธ

Some other small basics you may keep in your apron, are things like ๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’‹ chapstick, ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ•ฏ a lighter for the candles in the Restaurant, ๐Ÿฌ mints if you plan to have a secret snack hidden in the kitchen, or slip out for a cigarette, ๐Ÿšฌ and extra check books for Receipts that need to be cashed out. ๐Ÿงพ

Obviously the CROWN JEWEL ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ’Ž of a waitresses apron these days, is mini Hand Sanitizer, but frequent hand washing with soap is also still necessary!! ๐Ÿงผ๐Ÿซง

โœจ WHAT ELSE DO YOU NEED TO BRING TO YOUR SHIFT AS A SERVER?!? WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO KEEP WITH YOU WHEN YOUโ€™RE WORKING AT A RESTAURANT?!? WHAT OTHER SUPPLIES ARE ESSENTIAL FOR THIS KIND OF WORK?!? โœจ

โœจ WOULD YOU LIKE TO WORK IN A RESTAURANT AS YOUR FIRST JOB?!? โœจ

Iโ€™ve been seeing a lot of younger Jobcasers on the App lately, looking for their #FirstJob!! ๐Ÿ’“ Iโ€™d love to write a post to help them specifically, or anyone looking to break into Restaurant Work for the first time! ๐Ÿ’ž ๐Ÿ‘‹

The idea of getting your first job can be extremely daunting on its own, but the thought of working in a fast paced Restaurant where everyone is flying around, doing a dozen tasks at once, can be even more terrifying! ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฏ โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐Ÿ˜ฐ ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ

Donโ€™t worry though, breaking into #FoodServices is much easier than it looks! ๐Ÿ’“ I expressed on a recent post how to use all of your life experience and skills youโ€™ve learned in school to show who you are on a resume or application, but Iโ€™ll summarize here also. ๐Ÿ“„ ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŽ“ ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ

If you have experience playing sports in high school, you may love a position as a Busser or a Dishwasher! These are great ways to start at a Restaurant, and somewhat physically demanding jobs. โ›น๏ธ๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿณ ๐Ÿงผ ๐Ÿฝ With both, the Restaurant will train you in their own ways of doing things, and hopefully give you the instructions you need to how to do your job correctly. ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ—’

As a Busser it is likely youโ€™ll start with smaller tasks, like clearing dirty plates and glasses and taking them back to the Dish Pit. ๐Ÿซ—๐Ÿด When washing dishes, youโ€™ll often be trained by another dishwasher and also should be able to figure out the job pretty intuitively. ๐Ÿฝ ๐Ÿฅฃ ๐Ÿงผ๐Ÿงฝ ๐Ÿซง

Another great place to start in the Front of the House for a first timer, would be as a Hostess! ๐Ÿฅฐ Being a Hostess at a local Restaurant can be a wonderful role for a teen that doesnโ€™t have a lot of time to put into work, and needs a job they can do without many special skills. ๐Ÿคฉ Iโ€™ve worked with a lot of high schoolers who were in this role before, and they usually found the job to be a good fit for them and their schedules. You just need a friendly attitude, and a desire to help patrons to their tables! Someone who has engaged with a lot of extracurricular activities or is a very extraverted people person could thrive in this position! ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ ๐Ÿซ ๐Ÿ“†

โœจ ARE YOU LOOKING FOR YOUR FIRST JOB?!? HAVE YOU CONSIDERED WORKING AT A RESTAURANT OR HOTEL? WAS THAT YOUR FIRST JOB WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER?? โœจ

โœจ IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT WORKING IN HOSPITALITY, JOIN US IN THE JOBCASE RESTAURANT AND HOSPITALITY SUPERSTARS GROUP! YOUโ€™LL FIND EXPERIENCED WORKERS AND EXPERTS SHARING THEIR WISDOM TOGETHER, SO WE CAN ALL HAVE A BETTER TIME AT WORK! โœจ ๐Ÿ˜

I'm a young 61 year old woman who divorced 8 years ago . On my own for the first time in my life since marrying and motherhood at 17 , I've been blessed to now be with my soul-mate ( engaged ) for almost 6 years . I was a devoted mother and wife but the marriage had many issues . So my issue is this . I've gone from motherhood to successfully running an infant room for 10 years ; hired with no experience or credentials ) , my boss at the time saw potential in me and the rest was history ....LOVED my job . However I hit the ten- year- mark- -with- an- itch, wanting to enter into schooling for cosmetology that lasted over 20 years . After divorcing i found myself in a new city with no insurance and too far for my clients to travel, left me giving up the hair industry due to the fact it takes at least two years to build new clientele. One does not make enough money waiting for people to find you and ontop of that i needed benefits as i was entering my senior years . So I worked whatever I could find inorder to support myself . I'd lost my insurance which my ex had and needed chiropractic care but I couldn't afford to without insurance. After I moved here with my fiance the pains i delt with i thought were from needing adjustments . The pains became increasingly worse enevitably leaving me disabled and couldnt work . Eventually I underwent successful total hip surgery and it took a good year dealing with a tight I-T band and physical therapy . Hired a trainer at a local gym to help increase the strength I'd lost from the previous 3 years unable to hardly move ; long story short she ignored my health history and I wound up injurying my shoulder and suffered through another year of setbacks untill that was healed . So all in all I've had five years of suffering and getting back my strength . I've been applying for work for MONTHS now . I've been lead on buy HR's telling me I'm PERFECT for the position to going through interviews just to be told they don't train as they advertised. Businesses are famous for the 'lureing-in' potential canadates but then you either get completely ignored or you're told they're wanting experience in this or that WHICH WAS NEVER PART OF THE JOB DISCRIPTION ! IF those factors had been clearly mentioned I would no more waste my time writing my heart out trying to convey my worth and waste a companies time in applying ! I'm highly intuitive , creative , personable and LOVE being a professional at somthing . People seem to gravitate to me which has always been somthing I've been proud of ..... I know how to connect and gain trust and respect etc. I've proven to be a dedicated & reliable worker . But the shear fact companies can't or won't even consider an older adult who's had a few setbacks (NOT BY CHOICE or FAULT OF MY OWN ) , they're CLEARLY sending a message when you're ignored , or told false descriptions of the jobs essential qualifications needed or desired, that they see older people as RISK-FACTORS ' . OLDER or better described as 'WE MORE MATURE adults, are just THAT , MATURE and NOT DEAD !!! I've wasted gas going ti interviews only to be told I've not this or that qualifications but yet , they exclaime how they " ...are willing to train the right canadate...." or " NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY; if you have the desire and willingness to learn we have a job for you! " BULL !!! So ...... hear i still sit scrolling and praying things will change . My fiance and I are struggling . We haven't had a Christmas with gifts for six yeas ! We're constantly scrapping by . We never go out to shop or eat because we simply can't. This has caused more depression than I'll go into here . But this is the thing .... .......Somthing NEEDS TO CHANGE because people are told all the time that there's jobs EVERYWHERE . Im so SICK hearing that as it makes one feel as though youre not trying which is honestly a huge slap ! Maybe there are jobs , but not EVERYONE has been fortunate to have had the guidence from parents/ schools to help steer in the right direction . Most kids are CLUELESS . NOT to mention that just because one enters a school for whatever carrier path does NOT MEAN ITS A GOOD FIT or attainable; some spend their life's savings on somthing that turns out to be a bad fit for whatever reason . If schools did more offering hands-on education putting to-be graduates into places to explore and experience a career path millions of dollars could and would be put to better use knowing what that career choice is REALLY ABOUT . I feel short handed as my upbringing was not ideal with abusive parents and no guidence what so ever . After motherhood my career life took off late and left me without skills I've not TIME to learn by going back ti school . But I AM HIGHLY TRAINABLE with a CAN-DO attitude . But I don't have any more hope . I'm still applying but truthfully I've no clue what I want . I'm very sure what I don't want though and thats because I KNOW IM CAPEABLE , but am not being noticed or considered because of age discrimination. Yup...... they ALL say " we pride ourselves not discriminating against color , age , gender, mental disabilities etc. " ...... well that's all ti cover their butts cause the PROOF of discrimination is CLEARLY EVIDENT !!! I'm angry and frustrated BEYOND WORDS ! I'd LOVE to see the tables flipped because life deals us ALL Lemons. You just don't know WHEN . Companies need to value more mature adults because we're past the point of playing games . And I've called out more than one HR person catching them and calling them out on their double-standard job descriptions and caught them LYING telling me they hadn't called because all positions were now filled, yet called them out on this mornings paper , ADVERTISING for the SAME POSITION I interviewed for!!!!! It's quite comical listening to them wriggle theor way out of that !!! I may be 62 but I've STILL ALL MY SCROOPLES and I know when I'm being lied to and unfairly discriminated !!!!!
