Is it true that a waitress can make $49 000 - $55 000 a year?

I am thinking if this is true it would be a good way to pay for graduate school.

  • Working 40 hours a week, yes. But studying and being a waitress? Not possible unless you wanna graduate in 12 years or fail.

    • But working at a bar... or like a bar/resto
      sports bar
      Clubs
      Lounges
      Busy restos...

      Def yes
      Look at it this way... to bring home 50k a year... you need to bring home about 1000 per week. So a waitress makes about what, 7 bucks? thats like 200 bucks give or take minus taxes and what not... you need almost 500-800 per week on tips!

  • Bullcrap, most are broke, but the bigger the tits the bigger the tips. Some girls (especially bartenders) will get boobjobs to get better tips, pretty sad but true, i was a waiter.

    • Dominoes is great cuz you get tips n minimum wage verses $2/hr plus tips at restaurants, though vehcile maintenance is high. by the way it is the law that if you dont avg min wage at restaurant they must pay you difference! So 2/hr +4tips= restaurant owes you a 1.25 that hour unless you avg higher other hours and it evens out at end of shift,

  • Local Applebee's? Hell no. Some fancy restaurant with a long ass wait list and they don't believe in tipping.

  • A normal waitress/waiter? No. A stripper that also waits tables yes. I plan on doing that so I can front-load my life with a large sum of money to use for investing in real estate.

  • Probably not it's simple math you get a 10% Tip say that means for you to get 55 000 dollars that means you personal have to dilivery $550 000 worth of food and at a normal restaurant with say $100/table that means you have to wait at least on 5500 tables/ year or 103 tables/ week
