Waiter/Waitress Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Waiter/Waitress in Noosaville:
Always be confident in what you do, even if it means going outside your comfort zone. If you break a bottle or drop a plate don't worry everyone has been there before, and you may feel worried at first but your workmates are always there to help you out whenever you need it. If you have trouble ask someone never just stand there and try to do whatever it is you're trying to do without knowing what to do, you'll either get into trouble or you won't be trusted to do many things and be known as someone who doesn't have communication skills, in which is the main key to waitressing/wait wrong. Good luck.
