Description

Goodwin William Staffing is hiring banquet servers.  A banquet server is employed by a catering service or a hotel; banquet servers are roaming, non-standard waiters and waitresses. In a typical restaurant setting, the wait staff will have tables they are assigned to cover, but banquet servers are responsible for accommodating all guests at a function while circulating the room. Anticipating the needs of the guests and responding  politely to their requests are common required tasks.   Banquet servers set up for events, carry trays, serve guests, and clean up at the event's conclusion. Set up can include putting out tablecloths and place settings, arranging table placement and putting up a buffet. A banquet server's duties during the event can vary based on the situation. They must be able to focus on the job while staying on their feet and moving about freely, which can include bending, climbing stairs, and carrying items weighing 25-50 pounds. Banquet servers must adhere to health and safety standards at all times, even when  closing down at the end of the event, which may include breaking down the table set up and taking tablecloths and linens to the laundry.
