So You Want To Be A Waiter

The best book on waiting tables that you have never read – yet

End of the month post

Well cats and kittens, it’s time to remind you that at the end of the month, the smart waiter takes a really close look at the uniform. Are the shoes on their last legs and are your pants cuffs starting to fray? How about those shirt collars – piling and stained from the sweat of your labors?

Now’s the time to cast a critical eye and renew your uniform so that you can look the best that you can – crisp and professional.

And now is the time to start setting next month’s goals. As we are approaching the end of the year, you should start working up more global goals for next year, whether it be not every waiting tables again and getting out at any cost, to increasing your earnings by X-amount or learning more about wine and spirits. Perhaps it might be working toward a higher-end restaurant. If you focus your goals to this, it can be achieved, even in these economic times. But you have to put the work in. Just remember, you have another year’s experience under your belt. That won’t hurt.

Treat the job as any professional would and you’ll go a long way.
