Great work environment with amazing management and awesome colleagues.
Banquet Server (Current Employee) – Sault Ste. Marie, ON – 20 February 2015
A typical shift consisted of:
-Setting up banquet rooms
-Accomodating visitors and guests
-Serving meals and drinks at functions
-Cleaning up and reorganizing the ballroom and servery
I learned and improved on many areas from this job. I learned how to socialize with and accommodate individuals from many different cultural and career backgrounds. I learned how to anticipate and read individuals needs, concerns and attitudes. I also learned how to put up with individuals who are rude, aggressive and intoxicated. My social skills and time management were other areas I improved on.
Management was outstanding. I cannot say enough good things about my supervisor and the other members of management. They were always polite and accomodating. My supervisor made work fun, and I learned a lot about how to interact and deal with guests from him. His confidence in me, and the additional responsibilities he gave me, helped me have faith in my decision-making abilities.
My co-workers were amazing. I loved going to work each shift because I knew how much fun it was going to be. Missing a saturday night shift was awful because then you had to wait another week to see everyone again.
Hardest part of the job was staying awake until early in the morning cleaning up after a wedding. Some shifts seemed to drag on, but the staff members always helped each other out and found ways to make the work fun.
The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to see my co-workers each shift. Everyone got along, and it was always a blast to go to work.
Free food, great staff
