In a constant effort to supply their guests with convenient, inclusive service, hotels often provide a complimentary breakfast service prepared and maintained by an attendant. The service, featuring hot and cold items available for a limited, preset amount of time each morning, is considered part of the overall guest experience. It is therefore the attendant's job to ensure each guest's day starts out the right way.
Breakfast attendants have many duties to perform during a shift. Main duties include setting up and breaking down each morning's breakfast buffet, ensuring buffet items such fruits, breads, cereals and bakery items remain well-stocked, maintaining the safety and appearance of the buffet area and cleaning the area in preparation for the next day.
This may include replenishing silverware, sugar caddies and condiments, light to moderate food preparation, refilling beverage containers, mopping, wiping and sweeping. If the hotel breakfast is full service, the attendant may perform duties similar to those of a restaurant waiter or busboy such as attending to special food orders or needs of the guests, clearing dirty plates from tables, relaying customer needs to the kitchen and providing or refilling drinks.
Attendants are also tasked with acting as representatives of the hotel or corporation they are employed by, and are therefore required to provide a welcoming and hospitable atmosphere to guests. Paperwork, record-keeping, vacuuming, kitchen or other custodial tasks may also be delegated to the breakfast attendant. Other duties may be assigned by management or detailed in the advertisement for the position.
REQUIRED SKILLS AND ABILITIES:
Must have the ability to communicate in English. Self-starting personality with an even disposition.
Maintain a professional appearance and manner at all times. Can communicate well with guests. Must be willing to pitch-in and help co- workers with their job duties and be a team player.
Ability to comprehend guest requests, memos, reservations, promotional materials, event orders and similar written materials. Ability to remember, recite and promote the variety of menu items. Ability to move throughout a crowded room to seat guests.
Ability to effectively deal with customer complaints and concerns in a friendly and positive manner. This involves listening to the nature of the concern, demonstrating empathy with the customer and providing positive and proactive solutions. Ability to establish and maintain effective working relationships with associates, customers and patrons.
Our customers are what we are about. One of the keys to a positive guest experience is positive interaction with Ironwave staff.
It is essential that you remain professional at all times, and that you treat all guests and associates with courtesy and respect, under all circumstances. Every Ironwave associate is a guest relations ambassador, every working minute of every day.
In order to maintain a positive guest and associate experience, your work habits should always meet and strive to exceed hotel standards for work procedures, dress, grooming, punctuality and attendance. You should be adaptable to change in your work area and in hotel procedures with a willingness to learn new skills and/or improve existing ones, have the ability to solve routine problems that occur on the job and ask for help whenever you are not sure how to do something.
Safety & Security:
The safety and security of our guests and associates is of utmost importance to Ironwave.
