I always find learning the menu challenge when I start to work in a new restaurant. Be honest with each other! The best way to learn anything can take time. There is no such thing that I memorize everything on the menu in a week. Even though I worked at the restaurant for more than six months, there are some items on the menu I didn't remember correctly.

A server should know the menu very well, which helps the server be confident during interaction with guests. Since a pandemic happened to us, I have to change my workplace three times this year. One of the common suggestions; when a server needs to learn the menu items is the Flash Cards technique. Flashcards are typically two-sided, with the prompt on one side and the information about the prompt on the other.

I use the flashcard learning technique when I start to work in a new restaurant. In a short time, it helps me to learn some ingredients. There are always some menu items that make me confused to remember.

My other method is taking small notes about the menu items in my notebook. If a patron asks me about a specific menu item or ingredients, I can check the information in my notes and answer their question fast. After I followed this procedure to answer the menu questions, I started to remember them, and I didn't even need to look them up anymore to answer questions.

I hope you find this information helpful. Please add your comment if you have any other techniques to help you learn the menu faster.

Pro: Decent Pay Cons: is rampant with nepotism. It's definitely not about what you know but who you know and if you're a better brown noser than the next. This company thrives from these activities. Actually it gets to a point to where it's encouraged. I can't say this for all of T-Mobile but the West Region is ran terribly and they're surprisingly deceptive to their employees for some of the most minute things. #wordsofadvice

It seems half the people on this site really don’t want to work - so many complaints or excuses either why they left a job or why they refuse to work a particular job - A job by definition is work, it’s working within a system that someone else has created it’s working with diverse personnel all with highly diverse backgrounds, that means working with people from back grounds who do not act like you want them to and or they don’t act or behave like yourself. once upon a time our parents worked whatever job they had to do in order to achieve their desired goals, and those who truly have a focus will work whatever job they have to in order to pay their bills and build up a good financial foundation. Unless you are the founder and owner of a job Then you have to put all else aside and work, life isn’t TikTok people need to work - of course unless your making money off of TikTok, but stop being so picky then regretting not being able to work six months down the road..or having a job then deciding to quit simply because the people are difficult- those people will not pay your bills and if you leave your job life goes on for them and your back in the job hunt struggling. Grow up and go to work, stick it out until something better and solid comes along. #gotowork #jobsearch #wordsofadvice

Concepts -2- Courage Believe

I'm telling you the truth...(This Can Blow Your Mind.)

Many people believe they know, which is fine, however, things have changed drastically in recent years.

The people who didn't listen are singing that No. #1 hit song by the Signature and Legendry British Rock Band named QUEEN..."Another One Bites The Dust."

Sharmaine, you don't want to be NEXT.

Listen carefully... I don't give a Rat's Tail-End what you heard in the past. I'm telling you to say these 7 definitive things at your interview and that's it.

Then, everything else will fall-in-place for you. The question is, will you do this?

A restaurant or retail position is a great side hustle and there is so much turnover these days that open positions are everywhere! If you give me some more details on your location, experience and the kind of job you're looking for I'd be happy to find some lists of jobs that are hiring near you! These kinds of jobs have a flexible schedule and can create reliable cash flow that can be toggled to your needs depending on the week! Good Luck! ❤️

If someone contacts you from this place, please beware it is a scam. They are using several job platforms such as indeed, LinkedIn, etc and contacting you under the guise of an employment offer. They send an employmet contract for hire for remote work just to get your bank account information after they state it is needed to deposit your paycheck. Good thing I called the actual company, they are fully aware of this Tasha person. She literally took the T out of what should say Alston. Truly despicable!!! #remoteworkscams #scamjobs #employmentscams #wordsofadvice

I'm telling you the truth...

From what we have collectively learned is, you don't get a second chance for your first best impression. Also, everyone knows that Lady Gaga played in the hit movie scene with Bradley Cooper named "A Star is Born."

However, you can be a star too, if you follow some sound proven principles, and say definitive things at your interview. Then, guess what?

When you walk away, you can say... YOU DID IT GIRL, YES, YOU DID IT...!!!

Then, the interview, job and everything else will fall-in-place for you.

So, I'm a convicted felon right, all these work-from-home places I'm finding do background checks. Is there anywhere that doesn't discriminate? Is it even going to be possible to get this type of job? Why does your past have to define you? I really need some income!! #jobsearch #interview #advice #wordsofadvice #felonies #application

Starting a new ANYTHING can be nerve wracking 😅, but starting a new job can sometimes feel like the biggest change we can make in our lives!! It affects so much of our day-to-day and can influence a lot of our overall happiness!

It’s natural to want a new role to be the right fit and worry about future challenges that will come with it, but over time and with experience, it gets easier to dive into something new!

Whats the best advice you’ve gotten when starting a new job? Whats one thing you wish you did differently from the start?? How do you know when things are finally going smoothly there and you’re all settled in? ✨

I usually try to connect with my new co-workers, whether it is over lunch or a cup of coffee! To show the team that I am a team player, that I can communicate effectively and that I'm not afraid to share my ideas, and that I am happy about joining the team. I feel that by doing these things, it allows me to become more comfortable with being at a new company and it helps me adjust to the expectations of my role. And Drink Lots of Coffee!!! :)
