This is a common question for people making resumes. Think of it in this way: prospective employers want to know how well you did a given job, not just that you showed up and did it. Employers look for people who let them know that whatever job they did, they did it well. Even in what one would consider high paying and almost glamorous jobs, there are things one has to do which aren't exactly fun. Learn to do these well even if you don't like them.
If, for example, you list yourself as a "food server" you want to tell the new prospective employer that you took orders accurately, delivered food promptly and with a smile. Say that you always followed up with the patrons to ensure maximum satisfaction. In addition, you don't have to say that you cleaned when things were slow. Say it in a positive manner; for example, "ensured my areas of responsibility were kept spotlessly clean and neat and well stocked to achieve high degree of customer approval.
Oddly enough, most resume writers don't see the big picture. Prospective employers are looking for a positive personality and attention to detail. Geniuses with lousy attitudes and sloppy dress rarely, if ever, get hired. Companies would rather not have someone they have to manage. If you show yourself as someone who can manage him or herself, you are ahead of the learning curve.
I encourage you to show them through your resume that you do things when you see they need to be done instead of just waiting on a paycheck. When you say you did something on your resume, always include how well you did it, assuming you did it well at all.
