I’ve been a waitress for too long in my opinion (see goal “Quit being a waitress.”) The only reason I stay is because I’m good at it, I tend to get tipped well, and it helps pay the rent/school/car bills. But really, I’d love to actually have an excuse to learn all those cool drinks and then have the opportunity to get paid to help people have a good time (or get through a bad one.) I have an outgoing personality, and tend to love the bar talk…and living in a college town, it’d probably pay up a bit more than some other jobs here.
I learn a lot from people even just watiressing…I’d love to have the time to actually talk to people from behind the bar. There’s something to be learned behind every tattoo, black eye, and even sorority shirt you serve.
However, it is damn hard to get a bar tending job when you are under 21, at least in Pennsylvania. 4 years ago
far better money on the floor waitressing than being beind the bar making drinks. I would not reccomend either as a career though… there are better paying jobs to be had. 5 years ago
Bartending is really all about the money. And it’s fun to be the one that your friends always ask about drinks! 5 years ago

but actually being a bartender for a living is not all it’s cracked up to be. It’s long hours on your feet, dealing with rowdies and drunks, forever cleaning, hauling kegs and liquor bottles, and getting paid low wages. I don’t care if you are working in Club Med, it’s still HARD WORK. 6 years ago
I had a blast. I fell in love with my regulars. I 86ed a few drunks out of my bar. I was inspired by the drama.I got to know my personal social limitations. After the experience, I became proud of myself for not hitting the tap secretly. 6 years ago
