TGI Fridays Busser

I have worked at TGI Fridays for almost 2 years and in that time I would have to say creating relationships with co-workers and customers was the best aspect. I have learned a lot at my time there with my personal responsibilities increasing overtime. Being a Busser taught me to multi-task like never before, needing to keep my head on a swivel remaining aware of many things at once. I loved this job because I had the ability to walk in and potentially change someone's day for the better. Everyday is a new learning experience. I learned the true meaning of customer service here.

My roles and responsibilities included things such as cleaning tables, running food and making desserts. However towards the end of my time here I was given extra responsibilities on busy shifts such as taking orders and payments.

Achievements

Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award - My Duke of Edinburgh award had Four different sections I had to complete. The first was volunteering. I wanted to volunteer somewhere I felt comfortable and where I knew I could actually help someone . So I started volunteering at the year 7 after school Football club. I was at a high level of Football at the time and wanted to pass some knowledge and help onto the younger boys. I did this for three months and I can honestly say I learnt a lot. The second part was physical, where I chose Football. I was playing week I week out and so it was a obvious choice. The third section was Skills, now I don't have many skills outside of sport and so it was hard to choose something. In the end I chose Photography as I enjoyed using my phone to take pictures. I set up a Instagram account and bought a second hand camera. Photography brought my creative side out and showed me you don't have to draw or paint to create something beautiful. The final part was the Expedition which was two days and one night. Honestly, I found it completely exhausting, and although physically I was a lot stronger, I was also a lot stronger mentally. The expedition opened my eyes to the world around me, and that there is more to life than just Football and Video games. The whole experience taught me a lot, and made me a lot more determined and mentally strong.
