The Ballantyne, A Luxury Collection Hotel

server

May - August 2022 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

I liked that it was in an industry that I had never worked in, and although I had no previous experience in the food and beverage industry, I was trained well and quickly. I enjoyed being able to earn tips based on performance because all of my previous jobs had be a set wage, and I enjoy having incentives to work harder and being rewarded for doing well at my job and making the customers happy.

What I wish was different

I wish I had been there for more than just the summer and learned more about what happens inside the hotel and from a managers standpoint, and I hope to be back there in the future and learn more.

Advice

Even if you do not have any experience in an industry, if you are interested in a position, just go for it because if you work hard at it, you will do great. The staff and co-workers at the Ballantyne Hotel are super supportive and friendly, and it is a great environment to work and grow in.
