The restaurant and retail challenge 2

mylifeasaserver:

OK so a while back I asked you guys to find somebody struggling at their job and help them get better at it. Let’s hear the results!

Inbox me, reply to this post, or don’t.

I’m not the Tumblr police, after all.

I taught all the new hosts how to quickly and PROPERLY bus a table and how to better help the guests when a server looks too busy. All the hosts are now able to work practically by themselves no matter how busy the rush because they know how to keep everything under control. Yay!

When customers come in right before closing…

what should i freaking do if guests CANNOT wait to have their orders taken? i work in starbucks and literally every time i go to the back to get more mix, mocha, whatever, or do any dishes, people feel the need to actually walk INTO THE KITCHEN.

thetargetbreakroom answered:

I would say, “GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE!, READ THE GODDAMN SIGN OR YOU GET NOTHING!” ”Sir/Ma’am, can you please get out of the kitchen. I am only but one person who has to fulfill many people’s orders and I am limited to how many I can do at a time. So please if you will leave so I may have the necessary supplies to do my FUCKING job. 

But really, I hate when they spring up on me while I’m in the kitchen. Totally uncalled for.

The best way to communicate “get the fuck out” is by saying that it’s unsafe for them to be in your working area. Legally, this is true because they aren’t wearing nonslip shoes. Whenever I want an annoying guest to stop doing something I just use safety as a reason.

I hate it when people don’t listen. It’s one of my pet peeves.

So, I was at work when an older guy (around early to mid 50s) came up to the host stand with his check. At my restaurant, you pay with your server; we don’t have a register at the front like some places do. I often get people coming…

This happens to us ALL the time!!

"EXCUSE ME I have been waiting here trying to pay my bill!"

"I’m sorry ma’am that’s because we don’t take your bill, the server does."

"Oh."

Or

"Can you break this $50 bill for me?"

Oh my fucKING GOD DO YOU SEE A REGISTER AT THE HOST STAND??? DO YOU SEE A GIANT MACHINE CAPABLE OF TAKING YOUR MONEY???
