Not Always Dependable but Fun
Waitress Trainer and Bartender (Former Employee) – Manassas, VA – August 16, 2016
Depending on your regulars you may or may not actually make money. The kitchen is unreliable and forced the girls on the floor to not take as many tables. You learn great customer service skills because the restaurant seems to attract extra picky people. (or maybe produces a lot of food errors) You're also forced to sell contest items (desserts, calendars, drinks, etc...) and often cuts are based on the winner. The sales numbers from these contests are fake because waitresses will buy the items themselves or have their customers buy multiple of them but not actually consume or take the product they bought.
It's easy to have fun here because you can play games, hula hoop, sing songs to the customers, but it's stressful when your over staffed on the floor and unsure whether you'll meet you goal for the night. If you fit the role just make sure to avoid eating the fried foods. Trust me you'll break out from just being around them and you'll always smell like a grease pit after a night of work.
