Fast paced, lot of responsibility.
Buffet Coordinator (Ancien employé) – Richmond Hill, ON – 27 août 2014
I was in charge of opening and closing the buffet. I would arrive at least an hour before opening time and set everything up. This involved, setting up buffet trays, placing orders for food, making sure my area was clean, and paying attention to the surrounding displays to enhance the aesthetic of the restaurant. Additionally, as a part of the buffet was an omelette station which I was always responsible for as well. Customers would order omelettes and I would make each of them to their taste. I learned how to manage time between making sure everything in the buffet was always enough and taking orders form customers and fulfilling them. This was my first experience in customer service, and I learned that people do not always appreciate or realise the effort put into certain things. I learned how to handle people's concerns in a polite and efficient manner. Also, this motivated me to always treat those who work in customer service with more respect and have patience with them. I enjoyed being on my feet all the time, and always being alert. It was also very satisfying to hear that the food I made was very well cooked.
Enjoyable and friendly work environment. Free home fries.
Heavy lifting, and lots of fruit cutting.
