Collect payments from customers. Write patrons' food/drink orders on order slips, memorize orders, or enter orders into computers for transmittal to kitchen staff.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
