Do some research on the companies values so you know what they're interested in when looking for someone to become a part of their team. However, do highlight how your experience and skills set will bring a new and improved addition. Demonstrate you are a team player whom still knows how to lead. As a server, great customer service is key. Make sure you focus on that point. Best of luck!!!
I agree with all the wonderful suggestions provided to you. Allow me to suggest that you dont let our suggestions add to your feelings of anxiety do not get overwhelmed (smile). I agree with all the suggestions listed here.
When you go into the interview, remember to focus on the actual person that asked you the question. However, trying glancing at the other interviewers also to keep everyone in the conversation this will also elevate some anxiety of feeling under the microscope.
Another tip is to take a small note pad into the interview with you if needed. Sometimes you a question may require more than one answer. Your interviewers would not be put off by you jotting down part of the question to keep you focus on your answer. Do not focus entirely on writing down everything or question. Instead, make simple notes to keep you focus on your responses. The pad can also assist in taking notes when given the opportunity to ask closing questions you may want to note a specific response from an interviewer(s), etc.
Again, do not get overwhelmed by our suggestions. Remember to break and smile internally as this will transfer externally.
Hope this helps, and much success on your journey.
Have your own agenda that shows knowledge of what is expected of you performing the duties of the job. Speak with other servers and gather information from them. Do your research and be prepared.
For starters, spend some time on the country club's web site and learn about what you can from its website; how many members, facilities/amenities for members,food service, etc. If you know someone who works there, ask them questions about it.
Why do you need to know all this? To show them that you took the time to learn about the country club ( aka "the company"). Also learn everything you can about the dining room/ restaurant--number of guests at one time they can handle, do they do functions like weddings, get some familiarity with their menu or catering service.
Be prepared to talk about yourself--your prior work experience and experience as a server.
Questions they might ask you;
What you liked or disliked about previous jobs
Why do you want to work at the country club
What types of people do you have trouble getting along with
How do you handle criticism
How would you handle a difficult guest
Dress appropriately. Bring a resume if you have one.
If you go in prepared, you won't be nervous.
Appear confident and in control. Be personable and polite. Have a neat, clean looking appearance. ( likely all the things they are looking for in a server)
Best of luck !
