Every young adult should wait tables

Every young adult should wait tables at some point in their career.


– requirement gathering

– customer service

– sales

– upselling

– setting expectations

– performance based compensation in the form of tips

– money management

– learning how to work with a team

– learning how to support coworkers

Those were just some of the many benefits I came up with off the top of my head.

Maybe most importantly, waiting tables will teach empathy towards people in other occupations like taxi drivers, cleaners etc.

People show me all I need to know about them when they are nasty to their wait staff. Thom and I go deep on this subject in the following clip.
