TOP hotels are often renowned for having intense training courses for their management staff, but workers from a popular Causeway Bay restaurant yesterday looked as if they were training for guerilla warfare. Leaving the cocktail courses for the barflies, staff trainees for ChinaMax were put through their paces climbing flagpoles, being suspended from trapeze-like wiring and other dizzying acts. Was this a tribute to comic book hero Spiderman? Are customers at China Max predominately made up of IRA members? Will Molotovs be added to their sizeable cocktail list? According to a spokesperson for the Times Square restaurant, the training enhances communication skills between their multi-cultural staff and develops trust and support between them. The establishment assures us their souffles will not be served with a green beret.
