My sister and I work in a restaurant, and after some disappointing goings-on, I have decided to make a helpful guide.
Please do this! Even at small places like Boston Market, where servers put down your food and clean up after you! Tips can really help out!
I work at a very small, family-owned sushi restaurant, but please use these tips there too! I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to walk people back and forth the restaurant because they decided they wanted to eat at the bar instead of a booth. I don’t get tips as a hostess, but that part is very important!! Our servers pay 5% of each table. Even if you leave 15% they’re not making much (I always leave at least 20%). Just because it’s lunch time doesn’t mean you should pay less tip either. And don’t expect Asian restaurants to be fast and cheap just because Chinese take-out is.
