Bartenders Job Description video

Career Videos >> Hospitality and Tourism >> Bartenders video

Bartenders fill the beer, wine, and mixed drink orders that waiters and waitresses take from patrons seated in a restaurant or lounge. Most do the same for customers seated at the bar. Whether through vocational school training or personal experience, most bartenders know how to prepare drink orders quickly and efficiently, even during an establishment’s busiest periods. However, since the same brands are available everywhere, the most important part of a bartender’s job is usually the creation of a friendly, welcoming atmosphere that encourages customers to return on a regular basis. Bartenders spend a lot of time on their feet and depend on tips for a substantial part of their income. In addition, half of all bartenders work a part-time schedule. But regardless of schedule, being a bartender can be a very satisfying job for anyone who is genuinely interested in other people.
