Book Description

May 14 2010
How To Be a Waitress And Make Big Tips tells of various experiences Romana Van Lissum has dealt with over the past fifteen years as a cocktail waitress in a strip bar. It's an extremely challenging job where a server is always experiencing new situations because she's dealing with the challenging and sometimes insane public. This knowledge is turned into helpful advice for all waitresses and waiters encountering many different obstacles in the serving profession, from the newbie that's never held a tray to the old pro that still likes to learn new tricks now and then. An individual who has never worked in this industry will have a clear understanding of what it takes to do this job. Learning to use the till and getting the hang of balancing a full tray of drinks is the easy part. It's the "not knowing how to deal with intoxicated customers," being left with unpaid tabs, and a customer that won't take a, "No, I will not go out with you. I told you I'm married for the fifth time!" are a few of the annoyances that a waitress has to deal with. Yes, there are concerning aspects to the job, but Romana is going to tell you how to deal with most of them so that you are fully aware and prepared for what may lie ahead. Not only will you be ready to deal with some of the difficult obstacles encountered on a shift, but you'll be given practical advice to help you put more money in your pocket! Knowing basic bar terminology, learning to use your memory, discovering how to secure a tip, mastering some up-selling techniques, and knowing how to make yourself the top earner are just a few of the important topics covered in this book. Where else can you find a job that is extremely fun, challenging, and remarkably profitable? If you decide to venture into the serving industry, read this book, enjoy this road traveled, and make lots of money!

How to be a waitress and make big tips will most definitely get you off to a head start in waitressing and is a must read regardless of whether you're just starting out or have been in the industry for some time and are looking for ways to stand out from others in the industry.

Not only filled with excellent tips and short cuts that will get you off to a good start, there are also many entertaining stories of what you thought could never happen and how you would deal with these situations successfully.

And even if you weren't thinking about getting into waitressing, you will certainly be entertained with the insider's perspective of what it's like to work in a strip bar as a waitress. I mean, how often do we get to have a peek behind the scenes?

Why i didn't choose 5 stars was only because the reality of some establishments don't match with the book. The author works for an awesome establishment and not every place has a hearty operation. Nonetheless, be thankful that this read offers GREAT tips-no pun intended. Real to life stories and examples, and a cool list to follow whether you are just beginning or looking to spice things up from the mundane day to day. I liked the lists of items every waitress or server should have, i loved the short stories, and i loved the place that she's fortunate to work for- because not every establishment gives a you know what. I disliked the place i worked for after reading this book., which means she did a great job! I recommend this read to anyone aspiring to be a server, anyone who is serving to constantly be inspired, snag lastly any boss and customer who doesn't see the joy that a server really has doing his or her job and thinks that they are not worth appreciating.
