Why you left

I am looking for a chance to move into a more professional field of customer service.

Job Duties

I was responsible for my guests from the moment they were seated until they left the front door. I was their connection to the restaurant, their guide for the menu, the one who made sure they were never thirsty and never without something they needed.
while food may not be as critical as large sums of cash, a hungry person may beg to differ. I provide the fastest most efficient service possible to 3 groups of guests at a time.
