    Money, but Time

    Sep 19, 2022 - Bartender in Houston, TX
    Recommend

    Pros

    Offers a ton of opportunity to move up in the company or to work special events. It can be slow during the summer which is normal for the service industry, but a ton of money during the holiday season especially if given the opportunity to work on banquets. I usually have a good time at work and the people around me make it a great work environment

    Cons

    You have to work holidays; it is mandatory
