Made Some Money Training at my job.

April 2nd, 2011 at 12:18 pm

I made some money lat night training at my new job as a server. One of the tables was great, everything went well and a $30 tip. The other table went badly in that I either mis-ordered or they pointed to the wrong thing on the menu. The manager comped their drinks ($20 worth) and part of the entrees. They left less than %10. Ouch! I only got two tables to train with and made $35, but walked out with $22 since I had to tip the bussers etc. Anyway, reality hit that I am going to have to work my tail off, but that's o.k. I left with $22 more than I had! As for plane tickets, I have to get them this weekend. I'll just go and leave the family behind. It kind of makes me want to cry since I know I'll have to deal with the "Why didn't your husband and kids come etc?"

*Update: I just spent $465 to get just myself to the wedding. OUCH> out of any budget, but I'd regret not going. However, the family is staying behind. I'll be there only for a day so I won't have to spend anymore on a rental car, food, staying with family stress, and can make it back for a work shift Sunday.

    Congrats on the tips and I like your attitude of you left with $22 more than you had. You are in the learning process and it appears you are a star student.

    My last full time job was as a waitress. Back then, a great night would have been to make $35 in tips, but we always had to buss our own tables. Hang in there and you will do great!
