When guests arrive at a black tie event, they are coming with the hopes and intentions of having a fantastic experience. Our goal is for the guests to go home completely satisfied with the event and the way they were treated. We need to be able to seamlessly work with a number of different catering companies in ways that bring confidence and composure to the rest of the team. As long as you approach each event with an open mind and a positive attitude, working for AYS can be very rewarding - and it can be a lot of fun as well!
Communication in the work environment is always important. To be a great AYS employee you not only need to know the right questions to ask at the right times, but you also have to be a good listener. The managers of these events have so much going on.. So, when they are explaining your responsibilities at the start of the event, they want to know without a doubt that they can count on you to get your job done.
In my opinion, the AYS staff are some of the most composed waiters and bartenders at any event. Even when working with a new group of people, it is easy to spot the AYS staff because we are busy introducing ourselves and earning the trust and respect of those around us. We are experts at successfully blending into new work environments and being personable as well as professional.
Working for At Your Service has been great for me. The skills that you gain from this type of work are life skills that you will learn to value. I would recommend it to anyone that is willing to work hard, be professional, and generally boost the morale of those around them.
