I am thankful for every single morning whenever I woke up when many did not. I’m grateful and humbled that I’m here for a reason and it’s to help others that need a hand up not a hand out. I want to protect and help the weak and defenseless. Animals and people especially those who can’t help themselves the elderly and vulnerable. I want to be the people that whenever I pass away is remembered for trying to make a difference. I know that I’m not going to fail because i would have to quit and give up and I never will do either so I’m going to reach it just because I’m going to keep putting one foot in front of the other and a journey of a thousand miles was made but started like me with this first step! #thankful # # # # # # #motivation

I'm telling you the truth...

When you follow your dream the pathway isn't always clear. bright or even noticeable to say the least.

Actually, things looks hopeless, and helpless. The voice you're hearing is saying...

  • You can't make it.
  • You're not worth it.
  • Your idea won't work out.
  • You can't get paid for that.
  • Your don't have what it takes.
  • You're really kidding me, right?

Listen, if you walk away from your dream in 2023, things may not ever be the same.

Follow your dream, and everything else will fall-in-place for you. Trust that now!

I Believe You Can...!

WHAT SUPPLIES DO YOU NEED TO START RESTAURANT WORK??

Last week I wrote a post about the gripping power of Shoes For Crews, an essential part of a Server or Chefs Uniform. 👟 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!🤵🏻‍♀️🧑🏽‍🍳

The #1 most coveted item by Servers is their favorite pens! 🖊 For Bartenders, their favorite bottle opener. 🍷 And Chefs, their own personal knife kit. 🔪 👨‍🍳

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. ✏️🖊 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. 🔒💸

In addition to Non-Slip Shoes, you may need to adhere to guidelines about what you can wear for pants and shirts also. 👖👚 They may provide you with a branded uniform shirt, or ask that you stick to a certain color range. 🖤💙 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. 💸

In your apron you will need to carry cash and coins to make change for checks, and use to tip out fellow workers. 💰🪙 💵 Sometimes you’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! 🤑 Plus you’ll likely have cash from your tips, that you’ll be keeping in your apron anyway!! 💸

Some other small basics you may keep in your apron, are things like 💄💋 chapstick, 🔥🕯 a lighter for the candles in the Restaurant, 🍬 mints if you plan to have a secret snack hidden in the kitchen, or slip out for a cigarette, 🚬 and extra check books for Receipts that need to be cashed out. 🧾

Obviously the CROWN JEWEL 👑💎 of a waitresses apron these days, is mini Hand Sanitizer, but frequent hand washing with soap is also still necessary!! 🧼🫧

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

I'm telling you the truth...

People become stuck in life for many different reasons. However, it's not their fault. No need to play "the blame game."

When people normally feel stuck in life they may say things like...

OLD POINTS: (1) I'm scared. (2) I'm too old. (3) I'm not sure. (4) I'm nervous. (5) I didn't know. (6) I failed before. (7) I have no degree. (8) I have a record. (9) I have little experience. (10) What if they say NO?

TURNAROUND POINT: Listen, in 2023, the winds of time are going to blow harshly with realities of truth. People will be left behind, overlooked, forgotten, misunderstood, not seen, unrecognized, misinterpreted, neglected, and the list goes on...

Don't let that happen to you!

Start prevailing, and stop failing so you can win further down the road. Then, everything else will fall-in-place for you.

I Believe You Can...!

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

I’ve been seeing a lot of younger Jobcasers on the App lately, looking for their #FirstJob!! 💓 I’d love to write a post to help them specifically, or anyone looking to break into Restaurant Work for the first time! 💞 👋

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! 🏃🏻‍♀️🤯 ❤️‍🔥 😰 😮‍💨

Don’t worry though, breaking into #FoodServices is much easier than it looks! 💓 I expressed on a recent post how to use all of your life experience and skills you’ve learned in school to show who you are on a resume or application, but I’ll summarize here also. 📄 👩‍🎓 🏋️‍♂️

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. ⛹️🧑‍🍳 🧼 🍽 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. 📝💓🗒

As a Busser it is likely you’ll start with smaller tasks, like clearing dirty plates and glasses and taking them back to the Dish Pit. 🫗🍴 When washing dishes, you’ll often be trained by another dishwasher and also should be able to figure out the job pretty intuitively. 🍽 🥣 🧼🧽 🫧

Another great place to start in the Front of the House for a first timer, would be as a Hostess! 🥰 Being a Hostess at a local Restaurant can be a wonderful role for a teen that doesn’t have a lot of time to put into work, and needs a job they can do without many special skills. 🤩 I’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! 🙋‍♀️ 🏫 📆

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??

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT WORKING IN HOSPITALITY, JOIN US IN THE JOBCASE RESTAURANT AND HOSPITALITY SUPERSTARS GROUP! YOU’LL FIND EXPERIENCED WORKERS AND EXPERTS SHARING THEIR WISDOM TOGETHER, SO WE CAN ALL HAVE A BETTER TIME AT WORK! ✨ 😁

Like many, I hate talking about myself so any time I have to pump myself up and talk about the great things I've done to deserve the job, I grimace. I do much better with practical questions, like "tell me about a time/situation when/where you experienced X and how you resolved/reacted?".

What are some of your least favorite questions you've been asked in an interview? And why don't you like those questions? #motivation #interview #resume

Interviews always make me nervous even though I have numerous restaurant experiences.

You should search for restaurant cuisine before going to an interview.

Refresh your memory for wine and alcohol knowledge.

Find your BASSET (alcohol handling) and ServSafe (food handling) certifications.

Refresh your memory for the last two position responsibilities and skill sets you used in your job.

Dressed professionally and smile!

Common restaurant interview questions:

Tell me about yourself

The best answer to this question is by walking through your resume and explaining your duties and responsibilities in your previous jobs.

Can you tell me about a time when you had to deal with a difficult customer? How did you handle it?

We have all dealt with rude and difficult customers before. All you need to show in your story is that you handled the situation be calmed and respectfully.

Why do you want to work at this restaurant?

You need always research the executive chef, cuisine, and nominations. Based on your search you should create your answer to it.

Can you tell me about a mistake you've made on the job and how you handled it?

Nobody wants to do mistakes in the perfect world! But we are not living in that perfect world. All they want is to see how you learn from your mistakes and solve the problem.

These are what I remembered about the restaurant interview process and questions. Please, share your experience with a comment with us.

Hotel Property Management Systems 🖥

If you are looking into getting into the hotel 🏨 industry and you have a interest in working at the front desk or a supervisor/managerial role👩🏽‍💼🧑🏽‍💼; 📣 I would suggest you work for a hotel that has one of the more popular property management systems. For example: Opera or Fosse. Listen 👂🏽closely….EXPERIENCE/familiarity is everything in the hotel industry! Hilton uses Opera & Marriott uses Fosse… wherever you go, if you know either of these PMS’s, you should always be able to get a job 😁

Even if a lot of time has passed and you don’t remember how to use the system, it will come back to you! TRUST ME… I work at a Marriott currently, I was kind of nervous about using Fosse⌨️ because I hadn’t used it in 10 years😫! After the 3rd day, my fingers were moving without me having to focus on what I was doing 💪🏾 #motivation #jobsearch #Hotel #PMS #Hospitality #Technology #Marriott #Hilton

No one tells you how time consuming and stressful it can be looking for employment. Sometimes you have to take a step back to rest & recharge. Give yourself the opportunity to brainstorm 💭, you might have to go back to the drawing ✍️ board to reset your approach. What you thought would work out well for you with finding a job the first time around, may not have went so well. Im here to let you know, that you are doing everything right…don’t beat yourself up. Allow yourself time to rest to come back stronger 💪🏾 with a plan! #jobsearch #motivation

Front-of-the-house workers make their money on tips. It is a smart move to research restaurants before applying for a job.

To read restaurant reviews and check their rate on Google and Yelp. Since I have been working in restaurants, it is easy to understand which reviews are real and which are not.

Don’t judge the restaurant by the cover! I was dining a couple of times and I saw that the restaurant was busy on weekdays for dinner and lunch. After I started working there, the restaurant had over stuff. Even though the restaurant was busy, we weren't making money.

It is always good to check out the restaurant on different days and times, but I recommend you talk with workers and ask them how much they make on average days and weeks.

If you know someone who has already worked there, it is a great source for learning about the job. Your person informs you downside and how much money the average making in a week. Also, the person recommends you for the job, which helps you get the job faster.

How would you find a new restaurant applying for a job? Would you prefer to research before applying for jobs? Please, share your experience with us.

✨A Bartender, Who Loves Customer Service & Helping Others!✨

All of these tips are such an important part of checking out a Restaurant before applying! I always try to go in as a Customer first to scope out the way they do things, observe the mood of the staff, and see how busy they are. Talking to someone who works there is even better, but sometimes thats not possible. It's really important to read reviews also, so you understand the strengths and weaknesses of the Restaurant before your interview! Awesome post! 🖤✨
