    Salary is based on tips. So, the better service you give to guests, the higher your daily earnings will be.


    Sometimes your work goes unrecognized. There are times that a server gives great service and the tips will not reflect your work. Also, some guests are extremely difficult to please and many scheme to get out of paying for their meals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Happy employees...great service....happy guests....higher sales.
