I don't see how it wouldn't be as long as it's decently busy.

If you're doing it well, that is.

I've never done it, but it seems like it would be difficult in some situations. I'm sure when business is slow it isn't too bad. I can imagine it sucking when things get really busy.


Even at slow times you still get the asshole customers that give you trouble. I think that would be the worst part. Customers are such dickheads at times.

I think it can be difficult
but so could most things, if you have a good work ethic and enjoy dealing with customers it will be a rewarding job

I did it in a pub. It's probably very different but it was pretty easy.

I think it just depends on what kind of restaurant you work at.

I used to work at this one restaurant. I was just a busboy, but it was all hard to work at. Mainly because it was small, it got packed every day and night (like a line out the door on a wednesday), and the owner was greedy as f*ck, and always kept it understaffed. Waiters would do like 40 tables a night each, and the kitchen was really small and cramped. Plus some customers can be really rude. Having said that, the money is pretty damn good for college students.

Some places just aren't busy and it seems very relaxed to wait tables there.

Not necessarily difficult work though, just annoying and hard work every now and then.

I haven't done it. Although when I worked as a dish washer I served some old ladies their tea. They seemed happy. It wasn't hard.

I can imagine it can be stressful if you have a busy, fast moving environment. Keep your shit together and you'll be okay though.

It's not difficult in the sense that working in a warehouse or at construction site is difficult, but I worked as a dish washer and I don't think I'd ever work as a server. It's really hectic and if you work at a large restaurant chain it's busy pretty much every night. It can be exhausting too because you're standing for really long periods of time and running all over the place.

Not to mention customers can be huge assholes.

It's easy in the sense that most people can get by with it, but it's difficult in terms of actual work. If you're working at a busy enough establishment, it gets pretty heated and tiring.

If it was they wouldn't employ so many people to do it as their first job ever.


The turnover rate is enormous, and it's stupidly easy to train people for the position. There's not exactly a huge list of qualifications, you just need to be able to memorize a menu and carry trays of food.

That being said, it's stupidly difficult when the restaurant is busy because you get no time to slow down. You're on your feet running around for hours at a time carrying food for customers who rarely appreciate how hard you're working because their food wasn't made properly or some other reason.

I've had two jobs waiting tables and I'm never doing it again unless I'm desperate.

I work in the kitchen cooking the food. Waiting tables is women's work.


They're both women's work. Let's not get ahead of ourselves here.

depends on the type of person you are. being a restaurant veteran i can say that when it's easy, it's easy, but when it's hard, fuk everything about it.

From experience: no, but it is stressful, mostly because you don't only get the flak for your own mistakes, if the kitchen mess up then you get crapped on by the customer regardless of the fact you had no power to stop it. And the kitchen is generally a group of arrogant ****tards and so they don't accept responsibility. 'The chicken wasn't cooked? Well why did you take it to the table then?' Assholes, the lot of them.

It does, in that you're now cooking steak instead of whatever other thing you were cooking before. It's just less woman-like, don't get me wrong, chicks are good cooks. Men are better, but chicks are still good cooks.

I can't comment until you've said directly that man's work is cooking a meal.

This. It can be easy, but it can also be the most frustrating thing in the world when you have to deal with shitty customers who think you are the scum of the earth as well as coworkers who don't do their part.

There's a reason why waiters are almost always a consistent need for employers.

I think everybody should be required to do some type of service job because so many people are ungrateful and lack restaurant etiquette due to being unaware of how the biz works.

But as a job it is difficult because regardless of what should be fairly simple work, there are tons of things that make it not so simple.
