Party Coordinator, pump it up Beaverton, oregon feb 2010- sep 2011
Typical duties include greeting guests and party host. Monitoring parties, interacting and playing with kids and adults. Preparing and serving food to guests. The job typically was very chaotic and fast paced. I started out supervising parties sizes ranging from 15 to 60 people. Getting 60 people, mostly kids, to do what you want isn't the easiest thing. Being the only person assigned to that party, it was my responsibility to move these parties at specific times. Managing time and being aware of it was a skill that was quickly picked up. I also had to learn how to make not only kids happy but also their parents. A nice but assertive attitude was always needed in all situations or quarrels. I later moved up a position being party coordinator or “floater”. Basically I had to clean up and set up party rooms where cake, presents and food where served. I had to collaborate with every party host, making sure every party room was set up the way the host wanted it. Often times I had to multi-task to get the rooms set up on time, normally I only had 30 min or less to clean up and set up for the next party. I also was in charge of training a majority of our new employees. Clear communication was key in those cases because if the trainee were to do something wrong I was to blame.
