I am searching for a job that doesn’t feel like a job but something that I’m looking forwards to going to! I’m so much more productive and thriving in anything that is something that is really important to me and makes a difference in people’s lives if only for a moment. Knowledge is priceless and it is the only thing that someone can give you or you can give to someone else freely. I #wordsofadvice love whatever you choose and be the best person you can be at it! You deserve to be happy and you will once you get the opportunity same as I’m looking forward to finding. We can make a difference by work ethic’s and eventually progress towards promotions and we’ll be able to make the same difference in another person’s lives because we have been through it and it’s not a hand out but it’s a hand up and it’s worth watching and waiting for.

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...!

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.

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.

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! 🖤✨

Restaurant workers make their vital earn money from tips. The restaurant pays hourly lower than minimum wage, and as restaurant workers, we know that gratuity is guaranteed money for us.

It is hard to deny that waiting for six people and more parties required a lot of work while occupying a big part of your section. When you are a server, it is good to know relief us that your hard work gets paid.

Other issues with automatic gratuity are double tipping. I worked in a couple of restaurants where you must let customers know that gratuity had already been added to the check. Restaurants may receive a call from customers about double tipping.

I was waiting for a table with ten people business group. I circled the automatic gratuity in the check, but I didn’t have a chance to let them know verbally. As a result, I got double tipped from that table. A couple of people from the group were still sitting at the bar. I approached them and explained the situation. I told them if they want, they scratch the tips because I had already got my money from automatic gratuity. A guy told me that keep the tip, but I bought them a premium drink for which I kept the %60 tip.

Nowadays, I work in a restaurant where we don’t allow to add a gratuity for a party of 6 people. I rarely see people not tip their server, but this is the restaurant policy.

What is your experience with a gratuity as a server or customer? Please, share your experience with us.

I invite everybody who has interest and experience with hospitality to our group “Restaurant & Hospitality Superstars” Please, join our group and share your experience with us.

Most servers don't make minimum wage because servers live on tips and do claim on income tax when it's time to file taxes. So rarely tipping is not cool! They are providing you a service and do count on that money to live on.

You're so right, not just physically draining but mentally, having to remember details.

My experience as a Store Manager, Revamp Recognition is helpful. Burnout often seems from feeling lack of purpose or meaning in work. Employees who report having a better understanding of their role in supporting the wider retail organization are more satisfied in their overall roles.

Simply by letting him or her know that is their problem to deal with, keep it professional and respectful and make it a great day. Smile and walk away.

Someone else's phobia is not to be absorbed or take up space in your functional sound stable mental capacity of intelligence. People wake up with millions of choices and should have gratitude but unfortunately the evil within make some choose violence because they see life through a thwarted lens and tunnel vision.

Racism, discrimination and prejudice is mental and the person(s) have inability to accept their own inadequacies and feel the need to project on someone else they have compared themselves to in hope to feel superior in other areas to void out where lack of confidence is. They are carriers of self hate and self-guilt allergic to hope, unconditional love, joy and laughter.

Therefore, if you are filled with hope, unconditional love, joy and laughter stay purposeful with confidence and a positive attitude that is contagious and maybe they will get infected and be cured by your generating out the goodness of normal human being behavior.

I posted this in the Retail Superstars group yesterday. @Phoebe Montrie suggested to also post on to this group. It certainly does apply to this group as well. Thanks Phoebe!

Working in the restaurant and hospitality industries can be hard on your legs. Working extra shifts or more hours during the holidays makes them hurt even more. Getting a comfortable pair of shoes can help but here are some other things I read in an online blog that you can do to relieve pain:

Foam roll or tennis ball Simply place a tennis ball beneath your foot and roll it back and forth. Similarly, use it to stretch and lengthen the muscles in your calves and thighs. This will help stretch and lengthen you muscles, keeping them long, lean and limber.

Stretch Foam rolling is preferred over stretching, since stretching can be dangerous on cold muscles. But stretching is at least something you can take with you anywhere, anytime. You don’t need a tool to do it. You can do it at work throughout the day to relieve tension in your lower half. Try a few forward folds. Bend down and touch your toes. Or squat to the floor with your knees to your chest and ankles lifted to get an ankle and calf stretch.

Elevate your feet You get home, get comfy, and lay on the couch with your feet up. Maybe they’re up off the floor but try to get them up above your heart. Now your leg veins don’t have to work as hard. You can give your lower body circulation the time it needs to rest and recover from a hard day’s work.

Compress your calves Compression socks aren’t sexy, but they work. Just be sure they’re not too tight. And if you feel uncomfortable in them at any time, then remove them. The point isn’t to cut off circulation. The point is to help your circulation.

Soak your feet A quality foot soak has many benefits. Grab yourself a tub of hot water. Add some epsom salt and essential oils of your choosing. Now sit back and relax.

How do you take care of your legs?

Why do we leave everything for After

Then I'll call you.

Then I do.

After I say it.

Then I change.

We leave everything for After, as if the After is the best. Why don't we understand that...

Then the coffee cools.

Then the priority changes.

Then the charm is lost.

Then early becomes late.

Then the longing passes.

Then things change.

Then the children grow up.

After people get older.

After day is night.

Then life ends.

Do not leave anything for After, because in waiting for the After, you can lose the best moments, the best experiences, the best friends, the greatest loves, and remember that the After may be late. The day is today. WE ARE NO LONGER OF AGE TO POSTPONE ANYTHING #jobsearch #motivation #wordsofadvice #advice #interview
