When he defined what she meant by 'nothing unusual' Faith grinned at him. "Whereas you are brave, willing to help others, multi-talented and cheeky too. What a wonderful combination." She felt surprisingly relaxed around Devin, but then it was hard not to; he was friendly and funny and when you had shared the sort of experience they had shared, it was hard to be formal and serious with one another. She was impressed with him, it had to be said, in so far as she could be with someone she'd met so few times. Still, he seemed to be very personable, very friendly and more than willing to help others. All of these were good things as far as Faith was concerned.
He didn't look like he liked the idea of being background music and Faith smiled slightly. "The focus should be on the food, I'm afraid. It being a place where people come to eat and all." Was he something of a glory hound, Faith wondered? Maybe. But then, that was often the case with musicians; she'd had two of them working in the restaurant since she opened it and neither of them had been natural introverts. But then, it probably came with the territory of being a performer.
So, Devin went and played and Faith had to admit, he was good. She enjoyed hearing it, his playing was pleasant and fitted in with the ambience of the place. He looked pleased when he finished and the expression was mirrored on her face. "That was excellent, yes. If you're interested, after I've told you the way we work, here, you've got a job if you want it." That said, she spoke to him about what she wanted and needed out of him. Turning up regularly, she had no issue with him taking time off, but if he knew that something was coming up, the more notice she had the better. Then, throughout the night he'd have a break with a meal provided by her. She'd find out anything he didn't like or was allergic to, but other than that, he got what they could prepare. Judging by the food that was going past, to different tables, that was a very high standard.
In terms of tips, she said, all the tips received were put into a pot and shared between all staff. So, whilst his tips were shared, so were the waitresses, and they usually got the most. The only person who didn't share in those tips was her. If business was good, there was a seasonal bonus and if there were any problems, he should speak to her and she'd try and solve them. While he played, there would be a table next to him with a non-alcoholic drink.
It had to be said, Faith very much hoped that he was interested in the job. There was something nice about live music in a place, the customers liked it and it added to the ambience of the whole place. More than that, though, she wanted everything to be seamless here at Cally's, ensuring that the customer had the best possible experience they could have and every small detail was attended to. That was doubly important considering the prices they charged and, Faith knew, simply having excellent food wasn't enough. It had to be the whole package and Cally's very much was. Devin's music would be a very welcome addition.
She wondered whether she should warn him about Trudi flirting with him, but she figured that he was more than able to ensure that he looked after himself. Trudi would flirt with him, there was no doubt. He was alive, male and in her vicinity. Those were pretty much the only criteria that Trudi had. Whether she ever followed through on that flirtation, Faith didn't know, didn't ask and didn't want to know. Some things, Faith considered most seriously, she was simply happier in ignorance about. That was definitely one of them. With a slight smile she asked, tilting her head to the side as she did. "What do you say? Interested?"
