I quickly progressed to Manager on Duty within this role and thoroughly enjoyed learning new skills in this area. It meant a lot more responsibility, but it taught me to understand the company from a different perspective. I was in charge of staff, cashing up at the end of the night, food stock, deliveries, checking temperatures etc. With this I was waitressing also. I believe my genuine passion and enthusiasm was recognised by my manager who encouraged me further. I was often invited to training workshops to give examples of my work experience and views on customer service. I really enjoy bonding with customers and would quite frequently receive letters of compliments from customers and regular SIS feedback. I am also proud of my average spend per head as it was always above target. I was appointed Christmas coordinator and even though we are small branch in a low footfall area we reached second place in the South.
