Server in Niagara Falls:
"Culture and Perks as a Serve "
Pros: Meeting new people. Tourism industry is big in Niagara and I have served thousands of people who are from all over the world. Serving someone from another culture is a privilege because it is nice to socialize with people outside of your own society. You get to establish a relationship with a customer for an hour and it helps to meet new people, understand the concerns of others and have the desire to help someone in as many ways as possible.
