Front of House Staff
About us: We are a small, family-owned bar and restaurant in Columbia. We're known for our homemade food; variety of beers (85 and counting!); daily entertainment such as karaoke, trivia, comedy, & live music; and our copious specials! Our loyal customer base of regulars is what makes us home for many in the area - we're often referred to as the Cheers of Howard County! Minimum requirements: 1+ year of experience in the front of house at a bar or restaurant Timeliness/availability : You MUST be able to be at work by 2pm (bartenders) or 4pm (servers) for evening shifts, and 11am for day shifts. If these times do not work for your schedule, this job is not a good fit for you. Being on time is especially crucial, because there will be times when only one or two staff members are scheduled for a portion of the day. Even being a few minutes late could make or break a shift! Outgoing and professional : As mentioned, we have a lot of regulars, and they are who make us who we are. Be willing to strike up a conversation with a stranger; get to know our staff and patrons. Have fun, but remember that consistency and outstanding customer service are paramount in keeping and gaining new customers! Hardworking team player : Our staff is small and can only be successful if we can depend on one another. Many of our employees have been with us for several years. Completion of side work, continual cleaning/straightening, going out of your way to improve the atmosphere, and helping to run food and bus tables are all essential to success. This should go without saying, but we are a drug-free environment with a zero tolerance policy! Preferred qualifications(preference will be given to candidates with the following): 3+ years of experience in the front of house at a bar or restaurant Extensive beer/wine/alcohol knowledge SERV-safe certified (alcohol) Open availability Please respond including cover letter, resume, professional references, and availability for work.
