When working at Applebee's one benefits from arriving early. This way the employees' may relax and get the prep-work of the job complete at an easy pace. Some of such prep-work includes, but not limited to, washing windows, organizing the host stand, setting up the daily charts, (if it is a weekday and morning shift) setting the booths with 2 menus, – more... Lunch Specials side up, filling the sani-bucket, and retreaving fresh towels. As well as checking all tables and floors for trash or uncleansliness, opening the door for the guests arrival and departure, and directing the customers as to were to sit. After opening, guests are greeted with a friendly smile and light conversation. They are then lead to thier desired location, quickly and pleasently. The menu is slightly explained, or a item may be recommended along with a description and name of that days manager. At Applebee's there is nowhere the customers are not allowed to sit at any time unless, for example, there are contiuating cercumstances such as a baby in a sling or a handycapped person. In these cases it is highly recomened that they sit close to the enterance and/or sit in a place where space and monuverability is more accessable. Periodicaly throughout the shift personel are expected to make trips to the bathroom in order to complete a "bathroom check". This entales asuring surfaces are clean and dry, mirrors are dry and not streaky, floors are clear and dry, as well as all the stalls being well stocked. If it were to happen that a large number of guests should arrive at around the same time,there could be a back-up and the need for a "Waiting List". The customer's name is written down as well as thier arrival time to allow a current and consecutive flow. When the patrons are finished eating and conversing the door is held for thier goodbye and they are thanked for spending thier precious time and earnings here at Applebee' with us, as well as a smile and a reminder that all of us at Applebee's will see you tomorrow. – less
