Page 4D + BUSINESS Hays Free Press April 10, 2013 Hospitality Jobs Continued from pg. 1D learning curve is "fair," with most newcomers taking on the position within one week. Patel explained that, as with any job, the level of commit- ment an individual gives usu- ally determines how well they can perform their new job. Patel said the increase of business along the IH-35 corridor provides not only job security, but also the poten- tial for more oppartunities for job openings. "The market is getting much better," he said. "When we projected this hotel, there was nothing but fields here. Now, due to the growth in the area, especially with (For- mula 1) moving to the Austin, more opportunities will open up in the (hotel industry). HOST/SERVER POSITIONS One of the most imme- diately recognizable posi- tions within the full-service restaurant industry is the host and server. Their job provides a first impression for any customer who walks into an establishment. That's the reason managers are inclined to seek active, engaging indi- viduals to host and serve. "First and foremost, I look for a smile; someone that looks happy, enjoys life; that has a purpose," said Mark Felch, manager of Chili's in Buda, describing what attri- butes he looks for in a host/ server. "One of the other as- pects is someone that has ex- perience in customer service; taking care of and creating a bond with guests and create an experience for guests to return to the restaurant." But those afraid that they do not have experience in the host/server position are not out of luck. The restaurant's ability to provide on-the-job training gives individuals a better understanding of the business. "It depends on the position of restaurant. In the host position, you can be a host for a while, and then transfer into other depart- ments. That is an entry-level position, to learn the ropes of the restaurant," Felch said. The learning curve does take time to master, espe- cially in the serving position. The most demanding aspect is the ability to manage mul- tiple tables at one time, while keeping customers happy. "I think juggling the demands of the guests they have in their section (is most demand- ing)," Felch said. "If they have four or five tables to serve, then they have to juggle each table, and be able consolidate their trips, so they are not running back and forth like crazy. They can bring every- thing out in one trip, take care of their tables and go back out, come back in and get whatever they need." Moving up in the world is something that a lot of work- ers want, and Felch said there is definitely a basis for getting promoted. Felch didn't give a timetable for promotion, but said that the determination of the individual provides the basis for moving up. "You must be able to prove that you can get results, lead a team in the right direction and show leadership skills," Felch said. It all begins with the ability to get hired. "It does come down to personality and be able to smile and be welcom- ing," Felch said, describing what restaurant managers look for in a new hire. "If we can give (guests) a memora- ble experience, then they will remember that fondly." Food Scores Continued from pg. 1D Mexican Grill, Railroad Bar- B-Q, The Palm Caf6 #3 and Texas Pie Company. McDonald's of Kyle re- ceived an above average rating with 4 demerits. In August 2012, that location received an exemplary score with 0 demerits. ABOUT THE SCORES: Hays County does not score on a standard 0 to 100 scale but instead tabulates total demerits. If no viola- tions are found, a score of 0 demerits is achieved. There- fore, a higher score indicates more demerits. If an establishment re- ceives more than 30 demer- its, a re-inspection is re- quired and corrections must be made to bring the total score below 30 in accordance with the Texas Food Estab- lishment Rules (Chapter 229 of the Texas Administrative Code/Health Services). Look for more inspection scores in the coming year as the county continues its work in the Kyle and Buda area.
