Prepare your job interview! Take a look at our example for a waiter position. There are some possible answers.
- "My main strengths are that I know how to take orders, how to serve food and drinks and give a good quality customer service, as I did it for over a year in a restaurant, in France. I was a waiter in this restaurant, part of a team of 6 people. Usually, we served 50 covers in an evening."
- "I would say my weakness is that my IT skills are not that good at the moment, but I asked a friend who works in IT to help me about that, as I know any job requires good IT skills nowadays. Also, it’s not going to be a problem really, because I know how to deal with bill payments, as I used to do it every day in a French restaurant, and also when I was a sales assistant in 2011.
- "My colleagues always said I was an enthusiastic team member and my former manager was happy with me because he thought I was a quick learner. He even asked me to take on a new task after 2 weeks: I was in charge of checking that every table was clean and tidy for the whole restaurant, before the closing hour."
