I dont think I could take any more! Im at the end of my tether!The Managing Director went away on business for a few days. Since hearrived late at the hotel, he needed to get a bite to eat. Throughout the yearthe hotel received many prestigious guests. Staff accommodated guests insuch a manner that they felt totally at ease. The hotel provided excellentfacilities like state-of-the-art technology for business people. In fact, the hotelcatered for all the Managing Directors requests
This hotel employee is very smart in his outfit.The hotel where he works must surely have several stars.But the employees’ elegance isn’t everything.Indeed, everything must be perfect in a hotel: the organisation,the service and even the smile.It’s surprising to see the number of people who, satisfied with a place,come back to it every year.Take, for example, a simple breakfast.It seems very ordinary to order a full breakfast and to ask for it to beserved to you in bed.But it’s not as easy for the bellboy to bring it to you and not stumble onthe stairs.Mind you don’t spill anything!Sitting in her bed, waiting patiently for her coffee, the guestobviously has no idea of all this.Whatever the time and whatever the event, the waiter must alwayslisten and be at the guest’s service.The noisiest place in a hotel, and where people are the busiest, isprobably the kitchen.The hotel manager, moreover, is found more often there than in hisoffice.Managing staff is always difficult, especially when it’s a team ofchefs who want, at all costs, to accompany the head chef’s dishwith a bilberry sauce, when a simple orange sauce, ten timesless costly, would be perfectly adequate!They cut, grate, sprinkle, peel, scale fish... What talent! It’s atrue culinary art.
The meal is a significant element among those services provided in ahotel and the food must be irreproachable.Obviously, the produce must be fresh and that requires workingwith a reliable supplier.The fruits and vegetables are imported from the four corners of theglobe and it’s necessary to have complete confidence in the company incharge of delivering the goods.It’s impossible to plan for two hundred covers without beingcertain of getting in time, and on time, fresh produce of anexcellent quality.The choice of the supplier depends on the best quality-price ratio andthe delivery time.It’s not uncommon to call upon the services of several professionals atthe same time.The restaurant opens its doors at the beginning of the eveningand it’s not unusual to see customers come in who aren’t stayingin the hotel.All the waiters and waitresses are dressed up to the nines: shoes wellpolished, hair well groomed, ties well done up, skirts well ironed...As usual for the service sector, a restaurant’s success dependsenormously on its reputation.The service must be impeccable.When you have a job in the service sector, never forget that thecustomer is always right!And if he does happen to be wrong, keep it to yourself!
If the customer is wrong... tell your boss. tell everyone. tell him. keep him quiet. dont tell him. walk away.How is the first employee in the video dressed? He is badly dressed. He is inelegant. He is well dressed. He is dressed like royalty. His clothes are too small. His clothes are too large.Why do people return to the same hotel every year? They are very happy with it. They appreciate the coffee. They like the waiters clothes. They are friends with the manager. They want breakfast in bed. They appreciate the breakfast.
What is meant by irreproachable? It is quite good. It is faulty. It is not bad. It is of average quality. It is without fault. It is extremely bad.What is meant by to stumble? To fall over To walk quickly To climb the stairs To run To jump To walk down the stairsWhere are the fruits and vegetables imported from? They are not imported They are grown locally From corner shops From four suppliers From four countries From all over the worldWhat is meant by dressed up to the nines? You got dressed at 9 oclock
Dressed very badly You get undressed at 9 oclock Dressed very smartly Dressed like a waiter Dressed like eight other peopleWhich two words have similar meaning? Irreproachable and Impeccable Satisfied and Impeccable Groomed and Ironed Adequate and Reliable Irreproachable and Reliable Groomed and AdequateWhich of these words is not a way of preparing food? Peel Scale Spill Grate Sprinkle CutWhich of these statements is untrue? All of the restaurants customers are from the hotel.
Some of the restaurants customers are from outside the hotel. The restaurant starts serving at the start of the evening. The waiters and waitresses shoes are well polished. The hotel manager is often found in the kitchen. The hotel manager is sometimes in the office.The training course 1 h 29Id like you to use your work placement to set up new training programs for H HIt must be difficult to keep them up to date with new metal technologies.Im sure the employees appreciate your commitment.Have you contacted the Training and Enterprise Council?Wherever they work, all our employees need training.
