Busser

Chicago Fire Pizza

As a Busser at Chicago Fire Pizza, my main duties were to assist the customer with any necessary requests (refills, extras, etc.), clear any unnecessary dishes off the customers table, clear the tables as soon as the customer was finished, and set the table back to it's original condition before the customer arrived. These tasks had to be done in a very quick and efficient manner due to the high amount of customers that came through our restaurant . Along with these tasks I was to help bring out orders to customers, check on the bar if need of assistance, and help dishwashers when need be. The job of a busser seems very simple on the outside but is a very dynamic position that allows  you to deal with customers, work under pressure, and ensure the restaurant is in excellent shape.
