If anyone has worked in a fine dining establishment and is willing to take a service technique survey, it would only a minute of your time and would be greatly appreciated. Just save it, complete it and send it back to me. Your input would really help, thank you so much!

Hi Michael..

Well Done Fillet is the creator of this group. In the heading of each group the creator is identified.

There are a couple other waiter groups with minimal activity by the members. Maybe we should suggest the all the waiter groups be consolidated into one in order to concentrate a group of mutual interest.

URGENT - NEED WAITERS FOR WALL STREET JOURNAL INTERVIEW

Hello...

Looking for waiters willing to interview with the Wall Street Journal who have lost their jobs due to cutbacks or restaurant closures as the result of the current recession. These could be from anywhere in the USA.

Here's the WSJ reporter's email to me today:
"Hi Paul,
We spoke for a story several months ago about restaurant tips. I’m wondering whether you know any servers who have recently lost their jobs due to cutbacks or their restaurant shutting down. I’d like to speak to them for a story about how the industry has fewer jobs than just this summer. If you could send me names and numbers of some folks, that would be a big help.
Thanks"


If you or you know someone in this tough position of unemployment, please contact me ASAP at Tips@WaitersWorld.com.

Please include:
Full Name
City & State
Email Address
Telephone number where you can be reached
Brief description of your circumstances - 100 words or less

Thanks!
Paul www.WaitersWorld.com
