What are your weaknesses?

when i work in Store manager as a assistance

On a very busy sale day a young strong gentleman arrived at the counter furious at me and the company! He claimed he bought the sweater three separate times, each time having the collar unravel.I offered him a soda and a snack. After helping the customers in line, I brought over a few different sweaters to have the look at and he decided on one with sweaters and I charged him half off. He was so happy he became one of the best customers in the store! I immediately called the Manager and told her about the man. I was commended in the next store meeting, II learned a big lesson that day . The adage “ You win more flys with honey than with vinegar! Less

Will you clean shave if you get hired?

6 Answers

Brutally honest advice man- I've been in management for Restaurants for over 6 years and it is required for men to be clean shaven or very well trimmed. Hair is one of top 10 complaints in food industry. Either for the "look" of it on someone who was serving a cistomer, or that the hair was in their food. On a daily basis we humans she'd hair all day long just like an animal. My advice for your employment searches based off your religion is to avoid the food industry. It's nothing racial, just reality :-) Good luck to you! Less

mike check, one two three

It's actually sexist and discriminates against men, the reason is very clear. First the man with a beard is no different than the hair on top of his head. It's just on the opposite side of his head. That's almost as bad as telling a man he has to have hair when he is normally bald. Keep in mind I don't have a beard and couldn't grow one even if I tried. So here is the real kicker. They would never tell a woman to cut her hair short like a man to be a manager. What if they told a longer haired man to cut his hair but not a woman? Lastly, managers do not serve food on a normal basis, yes once in a while but only under dire emergencies because of waiters not showing up. I was an engineer a while back and was offered a good job if I would cut my hair, I simply replied, if I was a woman would you ask her too? They replied "of course not" and I replied that's sex discrimination. I walked away from that one and was so glad I did. Made better money at another business with long hair. Some people are so stuck in their beliefs and can never accept change. BTW, no I do not have long hair now and through out the years I have cleared the 6 figure income three times. PS, where food serving/preparation is involved most cover their head and beard if they have one with a net including women. Less
