This impression will be

MORE about their negative
experiences than their
positive experiences.
Be proud of what
you are doing.
ALL jobs and tasks
are important for
the business. Even
the menial tasks!
Your working hours
can vary from 3 to 8
hours or more a day.

Be enthusiastic about new
things, learning about products

Recognize your
abilities but beware of
being over-confident.
You are working with valuable
stock & equipment. You need to
work carefully and avoid
wastage and breakages.
You should find out the right
way to do things.
The industry is based on
STANDARD practices.
There is a proper way to:
• Pour a tap beer
• Hold a tray of drinks

Practice your skills

by
BOTH parties
Employers invest money, time

They expect staff commitment
in return for this investment.
Hospitality industry is
based on

STANDARDS…
• Recipes.

• Measures.
• Service
sequences.
• Hygiene
practices.
• Procedures.
These standards are UNIVERSAL
and are delivered on a global

perspectives.

broad cross
section of people
at any one time.

Criticize yourself and
learn from your mistakes.
Mistakes are never
punished as long as you
learn from them.
Hospitality is a people
business. Customers DO
NOT want to see and deal
with miserable and
unhappy staff!
Bring enthusiasm into your
work and you will enjoy it
more.
It is infectious and draws
both staff & customers
towards you.
REMEMBER…
Your customers are
here to have a good
time and to spend
their money!
DONT allow
friendliness to become
familiarity.
You are NOT employed
to make friends with
guests.
There is an element of
professionalism involved.
Guests do not visit your
venue to make friends
with YOU!
The hospitality sector is a
“people industry”.
Staff should enjoy working
with people and meeting
their needs.
Hospitality staff
should have a
genuine willingness
to serve and help
others.

for you to deliver quality
