Average pay for a waiter or waitress is $5.01/hour, which adds up to about $25,000 annually. However, this does not include tips, which make up much of the salary of wait staff; with tips, waiters and waitresses can make up to $30/hour (depending on experience and level of restaurant they are working in).
Most restaurants require that members of their wait staff have a high school diploma. Depending on the type and level of restaurant, prior experience in food-serving will be a prerequisite as well.
We are looking to add experienced new members to our restaurant wait staff to take customers’ orders and deliver them food and beverages in a timely and polite manner. Job responsibilities include providing excellent customer service, cooperating with other servers and kitchen staff, and ensuring the orders are accurate. Ultimately, our goal is to better the customer’s experience at our establishment.
