Work History

Work History
Apr 2011 - Present

Asst. Manager

Ground Pat'i Grille and Bar

My current employers at Ground Pat'i Grille and Bar have taught me everything I know about being a diverse, creative employee and learning to think on your feet.  I was employed as a Server and Front of House Trainer for 6 total years and was given the job of Assistant Manager in April 2011.

My primary job duties consist of maintaining day to day operations, examining sales reports, hiring new employees, and streamlining product sales.  In the past I've worked every conceivable job in the store, planned Christmas parties, and created games and incentives for FOH staff and management.  I have always enjoyed using my skills wherever they are found useful, no matter job title involved.

I have also used my skills in Adobe to revise the restaurant's menu and marketing materials under supervision of the company's owner.

Sep 2009 - Oct 2010

Assistant Manager

Pizzicato Gourmet Pizza

Pizzicato Pizza is a unique pizza experience, which gave me a great start in management.  Although I started as a counter employee, I was quickly promoted through the ranks to Assistant Manager.   I used my time there to study the operations of a small, full-service restaurant and corporate restaurant structure.

I used Microsoft Excel and Outlook to keep up with our business goals and sales records and order weekly supples from our many vendors.  I was also in charge of scheduling staff and reviewing employees. Although my stint here was only a year long, I feel as though I received a great overview of hospitality management and guest relations.
