They have proved this recognition by trusting me to be a key holder/supervisor. This role includes training new members of staff, opening and closing the café, handling the till and ensuring the security of the safe. At Dawett Indian restaurant I have received complimentary recognition from the customers that I serve.

I find this recognition extremely rewarding, and it is a constant motivation to want to be in these kind of work environments.

I am proficient at using a cash register and issuing receipts for purchases. I have been introduced to two different till systems and I retained the information on how to use them both at fast pace. At Nesters Market I bagged merchandise for customers while adhering to standard procedures. I would and still do consistently use my customer service skills to resolve issues, reporting to management as needed. 

Server/Barista 07/2017 to 10/2017 Kekuli Cafe West Kelowna, British Columbia

I have learned how to be an efficient, barista and food server. I know how to use an espresso machine, bring food to people, and how to tend to certain needs, tastes, and allergies. I assist guests with making menu choices in an informative and helpful fashion. The answer is never "I do not know" but instead, "let me find that out for you." I have learned how to be comfortable maintaining a fast pace while also producing quality in the drinks I serve. I have various responsibilities including cleaning tables, folding cutlery, organizing the cooler, and checking that everything is properly sanitized. I have the skills to remember where food orders belong, and how to serve food to customers with productive courtesty. If mistakes are made, I carry myself in such a way where instead of only seeing a problem, I seek how that problem can be solved. I never allow people to feel as if they are simply passing through, or as if their time is not completely valued. Kekuli has also allowed me to learn about and to appreciate indigenous culture. I have both my FOODSAFE and SERVING IT RIGHT.
