The Seller-Server’s Essential Tool Kit
If you’re a seller-server, your restaurant or bar can be a grueling place. The work can be relentless at times, and yet your livelihood depends on projecting an unfailingly positive attitude. You stay in compliance with what BASSET taught you, you follow your employer’s rules and policies, you work hard to provide the best service possible to your customers. Amid all your hard work, don’t forget a few simple but essential tools to make your load a little lighter –
Comfortable, nonslip shoes.
It’s one thing to have tired feet. It’s another thing entirely to have sore or blistered feet. It’s just not worth it. And aside from comfort, the last thing you need is to be slipping around while carrying food or drinks. You have enough to worry about at work. Do yourself a favor and don’t add your shoes to the list.
Headache pain reliever.
Some days, headaches are inevitable. Don’t suffer through it! Your fellow servers will thank you too, when they need it.
There’s nothing worse than being around food sights and smells with an upset stomach. If you’re truly sick, stay home. But for the minor tummy troubles that tend to crop up, keep something with you.
Gum or mints.
In addition to covering for the obvious needs, a gum or mint can be reenergizing and give you a little more spring in your step.
You have to do a lot of talking when you’re bar tending or serving. No need to make it harder on yourself by not having some lip balm handy.
A spare shirt.
Spills will happen, and they’ll be no big deal if you have an extra top.
And of course… your BASSET card from BASSET On The Fly!
It’s always a good idea to have a copy of your card handy, even if it’s in electronic format on your phone. You can login to your BASSET On The Fly account anytime to access it.
