If nothing motivates you more than a challenge, working as a server could be for you. This job is all about serving customers and making sure they are happy with everything you provide during their stay at your restaurant. To be a waiter or waitress you have to be able to think fast and have a good memory. It may not always seem like it, but servers have a responsibility to be extremely well organized and " together ."

Servers need to know proven methods to increase their bottom line. The purpose of this course is to help you develop strategies to maximize your overall tipping percentage and the customerâ€™s overall bill, which is the basis for your tip.
