Banquet Captain

Jackson Hospitality Group, Hotel Capstone

The Hotel Capstone is well known in Tuscaloosa as being the first full service hotels in the city. Its prime location on the university has allowed it to house, feed, and accommodate the Alabama Football team on home football games.

For 2 years now, I have been apart of the football team banquet staff along with serving other events for BF Goodrich, Mercedes Benz, and local business throughout the year. 

In one year, I was promoted from banquet server to banquet captain. Now as middle management, I am in control of delegating task  to staff that range from 2-15 depending on the size of the event.

I have acquired management, food and safety, teamwork, organizational and hospitality skills in this job.
