Upselling means encouraging guests to buy more expensive food or drinks. πŸ·πŸ–πŸ’΅

Cross-selling means offering guests a complementary item in addition to what they’ve already chosen. πŸ—πŸ’΅

Most restaurant managers or owners expect servers to sell expensive foods and wines.πŸ‘©πŸ½πŸ™ŽπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ“ˆ Servers approach the table and try to upsell a certain dish or wine. This always makes me feel uncomfortable because it doesn’t make sense to push something people don’t want to buy.

I believe that creating a pleasant dining experience should be the main focus. ✨✨ Instead of pressuring guests to spend more, servers should aim to understand their preferences and suggest items they might genuinely enjoy.

This approach builds trust and ensures guests leave happy, which can lead to better tips and repeat visits.

Some bartenders and servers would rather go by a nickname than their full name. There is more to it, even though it could seem fake.

We have served a lot of people during the day and week in our roles as servers and bartenders. Some restaurant workers decide to keep their personal and professional life apart.

Some of them have odd or hard-to-pronounce actual names. When the server tells you their name and then continues to pronounce it that way for ten minutes, it doesn't feel right. Yes, it affects the atmosphere.

Additionally, it is safer for us to defend ourselves against the creeps because we serve a varied range of people.

Please let us know whether you prefer to use a nickname or your new name.

When summer arrives, patio season begins, attracting many patrons who enjoy sitting outside. This can lead to faster table turnover, resulting in more tips.

While working outside in hot weather can be challenging, summer is a peak time for earning money, especially for restaurants with patios. The biggest advantage is the increased table rotation as people love to sit outside in nice weather.

The main disadvantage is working under the sun and in the heat. Restaurant workers spend 6-8 hours on their feet, engaging in a lot of physical activity, which can be strenuous in hot weather.

On the plus side, you benefit from a comfortable, climate-controlled environment, protected from the sun and heat, which can reduce the physical strain of long shifts. However, there are also downsides. With many patrons preferring to sit outside, you might experience fewer table turnovers, resulting in lower tips compared to patio service.

Which one would you prefer if you worked in a restaurant?

Some servers and bartenders prefer to use a nickname rather than their real name.

Although it may appear phony, there is more to it.

As servers and bartenders, we have served a large number of individuals throughout the day and week.

Some restaurant employees choose to divide their job and personal lives.

Some of them have a true name that is difficult to pronounce or unusual. It doesn't feel right when the server tells you their name and then sticks with the pronunciation for 10 minutes.

It does indeed ruin the atmosphere. Also, we serve a diverse range of people, and it is safer for us to protect ourselves from the creeps.

Some restaurants have fixed schedules for their staff members. πŸ“† As a restaurant worker, having a fixed schedule allows me to plan other events in my daily life, such as working part-time at another place. πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

The biggest disadvantage is the difficulty of finding someone to take over the shift in an emergency. 🚨

Some restaurants prefer to schedule each week differently based on their needs. πŸ“†

Restaurant employees can request time off each week, but if many workers want to take off on specific days, there is no guarantee. πŸ™…πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

The biggest disadvantage is that you have to wait for a schedule to manage your everyday life. πŸ€”

What is your experience with these different schedules? Please, share your opinion with a comments. πŸ‘‡πŸ»βœ¨βœ¨

Albert, a father and passionate community service volunteer, wants to make society safer for people with criminal records. Despite several obstacles, such as housing and job, he feels that knowing that everyone is unique and categorizing them is harmful to growth.

Albert's dedication to devotion and hard work began in rural Georgia, where he served in the military before obtaining a Masters of Liberal Arts degree at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg.

He is now working on legislation that will minimize recidivism and enhance rehabilitation for convicted felons.

Albert, a father and active community member, wants to make society a safer and more productive place for people with criminal records. Despite several challenges such as housing, job, and social concerns, Albert's early beginnings in rural Southern Georgia instilled in him a desire to serve and work hard.

He entered in the military at the age of 17 and later earned a Masters of Liberal Arts degree from the University of South Florida in St. Petersburg, where he was named the university's most outstanding graduate. Albert is now crafting legislation to provide opportunities for sentenced convicts to minimize recidivism and improve recovery.

Albert hopes to make the world a better place by realizing that everyone is an individual and that categorizing groups is harmful to growth.

I’m working in a restaurant with weird rules where I cannot order takeout food for myself before or after my shifts. πŸ” The reasoning behind this rule is to ensure that employees are focused on serving customers and not on their own meals. It is still frustrating at some point. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

I must call or come to the restaurant the day I don’t work. The restaurant has a family meal, which is a free meal for employees. πŸ› It's a great perk that helps save money on meals and fosters a sense of community among the staff. πŸ—£οΈπŸ‘©πŸ½πŸ™ŽπŸ»β€β™‚οΈ I'll make sure to take advantage of this benefit whenever possible. I worked in all different types of restaurants. 🍽️ Some of them let you order a free meal from the menu (they cost fewer items, not the entire menu).Β  This was a great perk and allowed me to try a variety of dishes without breaking the bank. πŸ’Έ It also gave me the opportunity to provide feedback on the food to management. πŸ—£οΈ

Some restaurants offer a 50 percent discount, but you can’t order takeout. You must eat your food at the restaurant. 🍽️

Which do you prefer: a free a meal or a discount on every purchase?✨

Modern point-of-sale platforms come equipped with automatic gratuity options. The majority of restaurants only charge an automatic gratuity to parties of six or more persons.

Certain restaurants may carry out this action without prior notice, and they will normally indicate this policy near the bottom of their menus.

Certain restaurants receive complaints from patrons over the automatic gratuity. Occasionally, guests may overlook their check and leave a tip in addition of the automatic gratuity.

At the restaurant where I used to work, servers were required to obtain a signature from customers in order to receive a tip above their standard gratuity. It showed the customer is willing to tip the server more. The restaurant did not let us to accept additional tips if there was no sign from the customers.

Even though there were more than six people in the party, several of the restaurants where I worked did not even permit the automatic tip to be applied. The automatic gratuity has drawn complaints from the restaurant in the past.

Ultimately, automatic gratuities are the servers' promised tips. especially after tending to the large group celebration and offering them excellent service.

Would you want to work on Memorial Day?

Many restaurants prefer to be closed on Memorial Day. 🚫 Restaurant sales decrease, πŸ’Έ and it is a good opportunity for restaurant workers to take a break and enjoy their time with family and friends. πŸ‘©πŸ½πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ¦±βœ¨

On the other hand, some restaurants may prefer to keep their doors open on holidays. 🍽️🍷🍸 This is also a great opportunity for workers who want to make extra income on those days. πŸ’΅

In my experience, most restaurants don’t get busy. I prefer to enjoy my day off if I’m not going to make decent money. πŸ’Έ

Every restaurant has its own operations and decision-making system regarding whether to stay open or not.

What is your opinion about that? Would you prefer to work on Memorial Day?
