    Default order control and fulfilment

    Good morning,
    I would like to ask about the correctness of the expression: order control and fulfilment. what is important is that the context does not concern economy, but the food at a restaurant. For example, waiting for a waiter to bring my food, can I also say that I'm waiting for my order fulfilment?


    What is more - daily accounting task and controlling closing cash balance, as one of the responsibilities at work - does it sound good?

    And, just to assure myself. The official name of a big room where people eat in a restaurant is DINING ROOM, like at home?

    Thank you in advance for your help and best wishes for Chrismas.

    Only if you want to sound very unnatural.

    Yes, but i don't mean colloquial speech, i mean using this expression in CV - someone was responsible for order control and fulfilment at a restaurant. In this context is it ok?

    Thank you for answer.

    Why would you want to write about waiting for food in a CV?
