The job responsibilities of a waiter can vary depending upon the type of establishment in which they are employed. However, no matter what their specific job duties may be, there are a few skills that are universal and must be followed at all times. A few of those skills include kindness, punctuality, multitasking, and the ability to take directions clearly. A waiter or waitress shoulders a large responsibility when it comes to the reputation of a specific restaurant, as one poor performance could leave a group of customers unsatisfied and thus unwilling to visit the establishment in the future. Waiters and waitresses have a wide variety of tasks to perform during their work shift, including checking customers' identification to ensure that they are of legal age to consume alcohol.

It is also important that a waiter or waitress have a great deal of knowledge of the menu which the customer is ordering from.
