Why you left
I am leaving because it is in Orlando and I have to return to Tampa in the fall for school.
Job Duties
I had to greet the guests are the door and have a short casual conversation with them to make them feel comfortable and at home. I listened to what they needed and fixed any problems that would come up. I was always very friendly and tried to get them to buy the more expensive items or get extras in a very nonchalant way.
Well it taught me how to deal with people and how to up sell items. I would always offer the customer a dessert of tell them our specials. On the management side, I was the closer a lot which meant I had to make sure all the other waitresses completed their list of duties before they could leave.
