This job gave me great experience in banquets and hospitality. My title for this position was called a banquet houseman. The general duties of a houseman is to set-up for weddings, receptions, business meetings, conferences, etc. After the event we would break down the tables, chairs, and other furniture in the room. During certain meetings, we would go into the room and "refresh" the room. This would include refilling the water pitchers, picking up the trash, adding more candy to candy bowls, and more importantly to reset the room to look as nice as possible without disturbing where our clients had laid there belongings. If there was anything heavy that needed to be moved anywhere in the hotel, the houseman were the ones to do it. Hospitality is also a part of our job. Anytime a client or a guest would pass by, we would greet them and ask if they needed help finding anything.
I really enjoyed this job as I feel a strong ability for hospitality. I love to interact with our guest as much as they need or want.
