Bartenders can earn an average salary of $25,700 a year plus tips.
Bartenders are responsible for mixing and serving drinks to patrons, directly or through wait staff. Bartenders work at restaurants, bars, clubs, hotels, and other food service establishments. During busy hours, they are under pressure to serve customers quickly and efficiently. About half of all bartenders work full time, and they often must work late evenings, weekends, and holidays.
Designed from the bartender, the customer, and the managerís point of view, this course will prepare you to work as a bartender in all types of establishments, while learning the business side of the beverage industry.
