Hello there and welcome to our new service industry podcast BarCode TSI, where we discuss all things service industry related.We interview bartenders, servers, managers, and owners of bars, restaurants, nightclubs, and more. Our purpose is to shed some light on topics we all run into while doing our job. Some are fun, and some are hideous, but all are relevant to what we do on a daily basis. Even when we’re off the clock trying to enjoy our own time being served, we still end up busing our own tables, wiping off the condensation from the bar, stacking plates, and the list could go on forever.There is definitely a love/hate relationship that goes on in this industry, and we want to bring the LOVE back to what we do.Every interview is unique and informative, in it’s own way. This is a podcast to help us learn from each other through our personal experiences, and knowledge that has been passed down to us from our seniors.Whether this is your first year, or your twentieth year in the service industry, there is something here for you.
