Decent tips, good conversations
Bartender (Former Employee) – Valdosta, GA – August 13, 2019
As Bartender you receive decent tips, the hotel does give FREE drink cards to Diamond members so these customers tip only about $1 or $2 if any tip at all since their drink is free. The regular customers that stay in the hotel weekly tip very well. The best nights to work are event nights, because once the event ends everyone flocks to the bar for late night drinks. The bar closes early at 10pm which many guests complain about since they're room is right upstairs. One thing that I did not like about the position, is your credit card tips/room charges are added to your bi-weekly check. So you only walk out with what you made in case, which isn't that much, so you basically have to wait for your check every week to get your money. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people passing through town on their way to next destination so there are a lot of interesting people to talk to and there are a lot of sales people that travel and have great knowledge in selling.
