Title: Bartenders Job- Description, Education, & Salary


1
  • Bartender job is to fill drink order from
    customers. These drink orders can be taken in two
    ways - either at the bar itself or from waiters
    who place these orders for customers sitting in
    the dinning room. The bartender has the
    responsibility to take care of both the dining
    room drink orders and drink orders at the bar.
    Since beverage services include serving alcohol
    and tobacco products, it is the responsibility of
    the bartender to make sure that the customers at
    the bar meet the minimum age requirement. While
    doing their job at the bar, the bartenders serve
    customers bottled beer, prepare mixed drinks for
    them and pour wine or other drinks for them.

  • Besides having knowledge of serving and mixing
    of drinks, the bartender should also possess
    interpersonal skills. Usually, bartenders have
    the opportunity of directly interacting with
    patrons at the bar. Therefore, they should
    interact with customers at the bar in a very
    friendly manner and with ease. At service bars,
    however, bartenders do not directly interact with
    customers. There are a number of hotels,
    restaurants and clubs where the bars are located
    at some distance. In these cases, the bartenders
    fill drink orders placed by waiters and
    waitresses.

Education Requirement for Bartending
  • There is no specific training or education
    required for bartending jobs. However, employers
    prefer high school graduates to join as
    bartenders. Bartending jobs prove to be an
    immediate source of income for most youth.
    Employers also provide on-the-job training to new
    joiners. There are numerous public and private
    vocational schools where short term courses in
    bartending are offered. By getting enrolled in
    these courses, students can acquire more skills
    in the art of bartending. Generally, employers
    prefer to hire candidates who are 25 years or
    above for bartenders jobs.

Employment Salary
  • Most of the bartenders' jobs are available on a
    part time basis. A major population of the youth
    is employed in the field of bartending. Around
    551,000 bartender's jobs are expected by the year
    2016. The median annual salary of bartenders is
    16,350. Additional income comes from tips given
    by customers. Tips are greater at high end and
    popular restaurants. Bar tenders working in large
    restaurant chains may be given the opportunity of
    entering the company's formal management training
    program. Depending on their expertise and skill
    set, bartenders can also be promoted to higher
    supervisory jobs.
