Why The Cringila Hotel changed my life
I never worked in a pub before, In fact up until that moment never worked in hospitality. Its a common phrase ‘That you should do at least one job in hospitality in your life’ because you learn so much about people and you learn a new respect for people working in hospitality.
There is nothing like jumping in the deep-end than working a Friday night in a pub that does strip shows, the topless waitress’ and asks you to call out the meat raffles to guys telling to “Speak English C**t” That day I learned so much in so little time. I had no other choice, no money or no other job to go back to, I didn’t even have enough for a plane home.
Glad I had no other choice
little do people know during my 1st couple of weeks there, I had a calming spray with me to help we talk to customers and just not be so nervous. Some reason when talking to anyone knew I would take shallow breathes before and during talking, This was something I could not control.
During my time there this got better and so did my people skills, So much so I got promoted to Supervisor when the new company took over. Which came as quite a shock to me and the other staff, even some of the customers.
This place gave me an opportunity, to get my voice. without that happening, I wouldn’t be able to do have the things I do today!
The place was a really fun place to work and just hang out there, I have lots of stories of this places (I will tell them in later blogs don’t worry), so good and some bad. Overall this place has a local feel to it. This made it quite sad to move on from, we left a lot a good people behind… most of them still there!
