Be nice, but do not come off as flirtatious. We do not wish to give our patrons the wrong impression.
Act properly at all times, regardless of the presence of patrons.
(i.e. keep feet off the tables and chairs; sit with your legs together; try not to slouch too much when resting, etc.)
Be considerate of each other–if a fellow maid or butler is escorting a patron out and you see litter on the table, go ahead and start cleaning up if you are not otherwise occupied.
If any problem arises, do not panic. Calmly excuse yourself and contact either the Head Maid or Head Butler.
Try to be on time for your shift–if there is an unforeseen issue, and you feel you may be tardy, do be courteous enough to call the Head Maid or Head Butler to alert them.
Whether you are reporting in for your shift, or preparing to finish up, always be sure to check in with the Head Maid or Butler. Please do not simply walk out as soon as your hours are completed.
If you need a longer break period, consult the Head Maid or Butler.
Have fun! If you’re having a good time, your patrons will benefit from your positive disposition. 🙂
