I am customer oriented, work hard, pay attention to details, am reliable, drama-free and have fun on the job, which helps the customers enjoy themselves. I知 known for enthusiastic service, selling specials, my tie-dye wardrobe and a great laugh that rings out over the restaurant. You値l like having me as an employee! I知 currently a student at Portland Community College and would like to work part-time during Spring semester, which ends the first week of June, and full-time over the summer.

My goal: To work at a great customer service job.
* I知 dependable and punctual.
* I love working with customers.
* I知 generous and helpful with my co-workers.
* I care about my work and do things the right way.
* I知 manic about sidework and thorough in my cleaning.
* I care about my customers, my co-workers and the quality of my work.
* I work hard and am not afraid to do whatever task needs doing.
