I worked as a part-time banquet staff and we were only called for work during busy days or if they needed extra staff for the banquet team. I learned that being a waiter is not as easy as you imagined. They don't only worked like what you saw them in the televisions but they also do some things at the back of the house. Arranging the utensils, the plates, the tables, the environment of the place if what kind of setting the gusts wants. The management was fine but, they will only accept the locals first before us, foreigners. My co-workers were mostly part-time students and locals there in the place. They were also good but they still don't know how to adjust in the people around them. The hardest part is when knowing that you are already their elder or some sort of like a leader, they will give you the neophytes and orient them from the first til' the end while you are facing the work ahead of you too. It's still fun though teaching the neophytes, teaching them what to do and giving them advice on what to do the next time they are asked about something.
