  • We want people people. You’ve got to like being around others, smiling and chatting because you like people, not because someone told you to smile and chat.
  • We need extra milers. So if you think the job description is all you have to do, then we’re not for you.
  • You have to put your heart into it. When you tell a guest you’re happy to help, you have to mean it.
