I have garnered over 25 years of management experience in the Food & Beverage industry. I seek to obtain a part-time position as a Bartender/Server for a high volume establish that insists on superior customer service from all its staff members.
I value myself as integral part of the whole and it's my integrity and work ethic that drive my intent to contribute to a successful and prosperous environment that turns patrons into loyal repeat customers.
Started a career in tending bar at the age of 21 as a side income and learned it was a skill for which I quickly excelled via my pleasing personality that never meets a stranger. I have a knack for making folks feel at home.
The F&B business has since been a constant area of successful employments for me to date. In positions where I've acted as both Bartender and Manager not only was I trusted to safely secure premises at closing, make bank deposits, and train personal but I've increased sales revenue by running promotional events and making profitable menu adjustments. The following is a list of establishments where I worked in the role of Bar Manager/Bartender/Cook from 1983 thru to the Present.
