Skills

Quick Learner
Working as a busboy before being promoted, a lot was required to complete the job. Not only attending to the needs of the servers, busboy at this place needed to know exactly where everything was for the bartender and cooks. This required a good knowledge of the many items, and lots of food in storage. Being a waiter, being able to learn the routines of regular customers, and the menu, with daily specials, was another task that had to be quickly picked up.
Customer Service
Being a waiter at my previous job, I had to work with many customers at once. Just getting the food out was not enough at this small time restaurant. Spending time with the regulars was not a chore though,  and I learned valuable communication skills in talking with them.
