Bartender Reviews

What is it like working as a Bartender?

Bartender in Wodonga:
"Really enjoyable, social and different everyday."
Pros: The social aspect as well as the fact that everyday it is different, new customers, drinks and challenges. The hours work well around university study as well. The management are great and accommodate me very well too.
Cons: Aggressive or rude customers, some late nights and slow, boring shifts when it is really quiet. But overall these are outweighed by the easy-going nature of the job.
