On The Job
It’s important to make a good impression. Even if you think it’s a one off shift, there is always the chance that if you work hard enough they will want you to come back and work for them regularly.
1. Arrive early
Give yourself enough time to get to your shift early. You never know if a train is delayed, traffic is bad or you forgot something and had to quickly go back to the house.Arriving early shows that you are reliable and keen to work.
2. Dress appropriately
Make sure you’re dressed appropriately, if you’re not sure call the venue ahead of time and make sure you have the right uniform. If you don't have the right uniform head to our community page. Aussie Chef Clothing Company provide our staff with discounts to help them buy the right uniform.
3. Leave your phone in your bag
We know, it’s extremely hard to be more than 30cm away from our phones at all time these days, but when you’re on the clock leave your phone behind. There's nothing worse than seeing an employee checking their phone when they're meant to be working.
Radiate a positive attitude. No job is too hard and no customer too difficult. People enjoy working with positive, happy, go-lucky people, it makes the work environment more enjoyable.
5. Be confident
Just be yourself. There's a reason they've asked you to come in for a job trial. Let your (professional) personality and worth ethic shine through, everything else will fall into place.
