Do you want to work at a restaurant?
A work at a restaurant can be a profitable and rewarding, both early in your career or even well into your career. Many states enforce a minimum wage for waiters that do not take into account the excessive tips they can earn while on the job, and even those that do can still earn more than a standard entry-level job. In ideal settings, a server work at a restaurant that serves alcohol can easily earn $200 in tips over the course of a single weekend night shift!
The trick is to know where, when, and how to earn those extra dollars. For instance, how many tables can you handle at once, all while keeping the charisma— and appetizers, entrees, desserts, and drinks— flowing? Can you handle a rush hour while keeping control enough to not mix up orders and make mistakes?
