Great resume builder, most employers recognize the name and are impressed. Not sure if they do anymore but Forbes professional training was required I learned a lot. We had food and wine tastings in order to better serve our menu. These sessions were very helpful and informative.
This is one of those situations where being a hard worker (in Food & Beverage, I cant speak for other departments) doesn't help you out. I proved to my manager that I was an experienced server who was good with customers as well as keeping an eye on all my tables and turning them over fast. Because most of the other staff had either never waited tables before or was just plain slow, I got the largest section of tables. Now this wouldn't bother me one bit if I could make the money off these tables but it was a pooled tip situation. Nights that I rang in $500 in tips I would walk away with barely $200. This would be an amazing place to have a career as a server because the check averages are insanely high. Unfortunately that was not the case for me.
