Professional Summary
After almost 20 years of serving/assistant-managing restaurants, I would like to transition and graduate into a more upper-management type of position in the hospitality industry that has long-term growth potential and challenges me every day to help improve the establishment that employs me. I am willing to start at the bottom and work my way up into a position where I could serve my employer for a number of years and grow within the company, although I am a rather quick study who can adapt to the environment around me quickly and would not need much training to reach the goals and objectives my employer assigns me.
I believe my unique experience combining numerous years of the restaurant industry and business/office world has me most ready for a new position in a Hotel/Resort.  I look forward to a new life with new challenges in a new environment where I can learn, adapt, and succeed!

Experience
Server/ Banquet Server, 05/2012 to 01/2014
Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville at Mohegan Sun Uncasville, CT
* Server in a high volume/ high turnover restaurant in Mohegan Sun Casino.
* Served Food to high priority clients (Including World Series of Poker, VIP Players), in Poker Room at Mohegan Sun.  To work in the Poker Room you had to be very energetic, organized and have proficient time management skills. My sales in the poker room were one of the highest of all the servers at Margaritaville.
* Each server was required to manage all financial transactions per shift and department.  Accounting was extremely thorough and transactions were very large.  My personal bank at times would reach over 3K.
* I was also a part of the banquet team.  Margaritaville frequently would have "buy-outs" (BEO'S) where a section and/or the entire restaurant would be bought out by a Corporation or a VIP Individual.  A "buy-out" could range from 25 to 500 people.  I would assist in setting up food stations, decor, setting tables/placements, bar, table clearing, (pre-bussing) in between courses, running food and refilling guests drinks.
