Working in the hospitality and event industry can be fun and rewarding. It is also hard work.
A bartender or banquet server will be expected to unload catering trucks, set up bars and tables with all the place settings, provide excellent customer service during the event and then break down the event at the end of the night.
The demands of the job are clear. Once on site for an event, it is go, go, go. The best people for the job are hardworking, experienced and come with a positive, can-do attitude. Attitude goes a long way. The people that have the best attitudes are the ones that are consistently requested.
