While the most commonly known Front of the House position is Waiter or Waitress, there are many other jobs necessary to bridge the gap between the Back of the House and the FOH. 👨🏽‍🍳 🌉 🤵🏻‍♀️

These jobs include roles such as Busser, 🧽 🧹who are people who clear and clean tables, both as the patrons are eating, and after they’re finished. There are also folks who are Food Runners. They take hot plates 🍽 from the Kitchen Window out to the diners themselves. Other jobs like Barback 🍸 help in other areas of the restaurant, like behind the bar. Servers Assistants are usually only found in fine dining, and are often younger Servers training to take on a larger Serving role in the future.

I’ve worked in places where I personally filled all of those roles myself, while simultaneously doing everything else my tables needed, and therefore got to keep 100% of my own tips, as well. But in most Restaurants, the way these crew members are paid, is partly through a portion of the tips made that shift. The servers that these folks helped throughout the night are the ones who would pay directly for the aid they received.

Would you rather do everything yourself and keep all the money you’ve made?? OR Would you be willing to share a small amount with someone who has your back and can perform essential, but sometimes extraneous, duties that are often necessary to keep a restaurant engine humming smoothly??

Even during the time I was going there years and years ago, it was an unusual choice to attend Bartending School. There seemed to be barely any reason to pay hard earned money on someone else teaching you, when you could simply get a job at the bottom rung of a restaurant and learn all those skills and more, over time (and while getting PAID instead of PAYING)!! 🍹 ✨ 🍺 ✨ 🍷 ✨ 🍸 ✨

However, I was too curious to resist, and since I had branched out into Bartending at 20 , before I was even of legal age to drink what I was serving, I thought it would be a good idea to get a structured education of some kind. It seemed worthwhile to do a little research and practice before applying to my first restaurant position. I can’t say whether it was worth it or not, but I can say I ended up learning a lot more on the job than I ever did in school. 💁‍♀️

It was fun to play with bottles of colored water quickly making fake drinks, I loved 💗 connecting with my classmates and it certainly built my confidence - but I’m the only person I’ve EVER met who has gone to professional Bartending School.

Has anyone else out there been to Bartending School? Anyone have any certifications or take any classes to help you get ahead at work?? Is hands on training better than simulated situations designed to prepare you?? Or is it better to jump right in to a job??

I remember when I was interested in bartending. I was thinking about going to school also. I had found a place to go. But while my husband and I were out one night at our favorite watering hole I asked the bartender where she went to school and she was like she didn't she told me that it would be a waste of money and time to go. She even went as far to say that if I came in and filled out an application saying I went to school they probably would not hire me! or anyone. She said it's best to learn on your own and on the job. Practice making drinks. One thing about bartending is to a certain degree you can put a spin on things. "Cheers"

Starting a new ANYTHING can be nerve wracking 😅, but starting a new job can sometimes feel like the biggest change we can make in our lives!! It affects so much of our day-to-day and can influence a lot of our overall happiness!

It’s natural to want a new role to be the right fit and worry about future challenges that will come with it, but over time and with experience, it gets easier to dive into something new!

Whats the best advice you’ve gotten when starting a new job? Whats one thing you wish you did differently from the start?? How do you know when things are finally going smoothly there and you’re all settled in? ✨

I just try to keep in mind that everyone is new at some point. Relax, be yourself, ask questions, pay close attention during training, take notes and try to connect with fellow co-workers. And remember they hired you for a reason.

I worked for Walmart off and on for 25 years this last time was for 17 years. They told me I was terminated because I made to many mistakes, first they told me I was to slow and couldn't keep up, I pointed out to them before they promoted me to management, I was going to be slow because I was handicapped (I only have one hand) but I kept my head down and did my work the man you promoted me said I was exactly what he was looking for. Thru the years he left the company and a new GTM came in. After pointing this out They changed their tune to I was making to many mistake but still they kept me dispatching 3 D'C'S (distribution centers) when a lot of people where dispatching 1 or 2 DC's there were a lot of times 2 people were dispatching 1 DC. At first they started accusing me of things I didn't do. I was on vacation and they said they tried calling me in for coverage, I was out of town and I told them I would be out of town I had family coming up to visit me and I would be out of town also I wasn't next in line to do coverage two other people were ahead of me on of the person that was ahead of me said they never called him to come in. Also I have document to back a lot of this up, and also I have tape recording of them falsely accusing me of thing I didn't do. I used their open door and when they terminated me I asked the HR manager what every became of the open door issues no one every got back with me, she told me they couldn't find any reason to allow it so they threw it out without even telling me. I went to a lawyer and he said they couldn't use the tapes in court because it was done with out their permission also he wanted $460.00 an hour which I couldn't afford. So I gave up taking it any further. This all happen in May of 2014 I suppose it's to late to do something about it now. I was 7 months away from turning 66 I thing that might have been one of the real reason they terminated me. Since then I have applied over 200 places to get a job and been refused. I sure they were behind that to. #Walmart is all about politics.

An insider told me that new in-store employees only get 15 to 25 hours working at the Dollar Tree - only the managers work full-time. Has anyone else heard this?
