Overview

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!
