working in different venues is always fun as its a constant change of scenery
Waitress/Front of House Supervisor (Current Employee) – Melbourne, VIC – 29 January 2014
I have been working at a winery every weekend since I started with the agency.
A typical day would be cleaning and setting up for lunch service. Putting out the wines and checking stock levels, setting tables, polishing glassware and cutlery.
Management takes a back seat for service and I run the restaurant. The staff are great! A few are still in training but going very well.
The experienced staff I have and the chefs are fantastic. We all work hard, work together and have a laugh.
I enjoy the customers and being busy and serving beautiful food. The winery itself is stunning and a very picturesque place to work.
Hardest thing in the day would be the full clean of the venue at the end of the day as we are all pretty tired from busy lunch periods.
I have learned a lot about wine and winery's as well as juggling staff efficiently to do drinks and all table service as we don't have anyone on the till or behind the bar.
meeting different people and going to all different venues
needing to adapt very quickly and sometimes travelling a fair distance to a job
