Hostess

Jasmine Inn

Hired to be a hostess in a Chinese restaurant as my vibrant personality made guests feel welcome when they first entered.

My role also included: 

  • Interacting with many different types of people and catered to any of their needs as they waited for a table.

  • Multitasking as there would be times where I would need to answer the phone and write down any take-away orders whilst monitoring which tables were cleaned and available for new guests.

  • Booking reservations trying to accommodate every guest. If I could not give someone their desired time, then I would problem solve until the customer was satisfied. 

  • Taking guests to their table. If table was not big enough, I had to move seats around to be able to fit everyone in. 

Reason for leaving: Moved house
