Summary

From a young age, I have been surrounded by technology, which fueled my eagerness to learn and adapt to new environments quickly. My first job, starting as a busser at Paradise Buffet, I developed strong time management and teamwork skills while efficiently maintaining a clean dining area. My dedication led to a promotion to server, where I further enhanced my customer service abilities by ensuring guests had a pleasant dining experience. This foundation has been instrumental in my professional growth. My second job was at Chipotle, I started as a cashier, where I was responsible for handling transactions and providing friendly and efficient service to customers. Quickly, I took the initiative to learn the entire front of house operations, including food preparation, order assembly, and maintaining the cleanliness of the dining area.

Through these role, I developed several key skills:

  • Efficiency and Time Management: Quickly and effectively clearing tables to ensure a steady flow of customers.
  • Team Collaboration: Coordinating with kitchen and front-of-house staff to provide seamless service.
  • Customer Service: Providing a welcoming environment whilst engaging with guests to ensure their satisfaction and handle any requests or issues promptly.
  • Multitasking: Balancing cashier duties with assisting in food preparation and order assembly.
  • Attention to Detail: Ensuring accuracy in order taking and handling transactions.
  • Team Collaboration: Working seamlessly with the kitchen staff and other team members to deliver a smooth and efficient service.


These experiences have equipped me with a well-rounded skill set in customer service, teamwork, and operational efficiency, making me a valuable asset to any team.
