Craigslist Jobs You Don't Want

I wrote a post last week called 5 Ways to get A GOOD Restaurant Job.  I've decided to continue to help everyone out by perusing Craigslist for service industry jobs.  There is actually a lot of job openings right now.  But just because there is a lot, doesn't mean that they are all good.

So I've pulled some of my favorite posts that probably should be flagged, but I would rather comment on them.  

 Bikini Bartenders Wanted ***Immediate Openings*** (Long Beach)

New bikini bar has immediate openings available. Start work immediately.

Text bikini photo and brief description of bartending experience for an interview.

Adam (562) 400-9651

Adam, what the hell is your problem?  Text a bikini photo to him?  Uhm... no!  However, I do encourage all of my guy friends to text him some photos.  Bikini optional.  And I’m sure this “bar” is located at Adam’s place.  How convenient!  Run, just run away from this post.  This interview involves a gross couch, a ball gag, and some goats.  Maybe Adam should get crank called.

WOW!  I cannot think of any greater joy in the world than cleaning.  I know, it’s not a typical service industry job, but I had to post this one.  And what kind of awards does a housekeeping team win? 

“And the award for best dust-busting goes to… THE HAMPTON SUITES.”  And the acceptance speech, “It’s an honor just to be nominated with all of these exceptional cleaners.  We would like to thank Black and Decker for making such fine dust-busters.  Windex, 409… oh, they're playing us off.  Thanks to our GM for the new uniforms, and remember, if you love what you do, you’ll never have to work again.”

 Hooters Needs Assistant Managers! (Los Angeles)

compensation: Competitive + Benefits
Hooters is a one-of-a-kind concept, and we are looking for dynamic, high-energy business leaders to join our team as Managers In Training! Managers are responsible for:
• Ensuring exceptional guest service;
• Running Restaurant Operations;
• Interviewing, Coaching and Counseling;
• Building and Driving Sales.
Must be willing to work long hours (50-60 hours per week), holidays, nights and weekends. Managers must be able to make decisions, and must be able to execute within Hooters systems and standards.

Where do I begin with this one?  Who the hell is “willing” to work 60 hours a week?  Well, maybe the award winning cleaning team.  Responsible for interviewing, coaching, and counseling.  So, you have to provide therapy for the Hooter’s wait staff.  

“Jasmine, you don’t seem like yourself lately?  Is everything okay at home?  Maybe you should try a different push-up bra.”

But my favorite part of this post, the managers MUST be able to make decisions.  So the job interview involves something like,

“What is your favorite day of the week?  (Blank stare.)  NEXT!?”

It doesn't get any BITTER than this!

Until next time... Server's don't pay their rent with compliments.

"Bitter.  Party of 1?  Your table is ready."

Excuse Tips

It's ideal for a server to receive 18 to 20 percent gratuity for a job well done.  Now it seems that customers are looking to leave an excuse rather than a monetary tip explaining why they couldn't leave their server any money.  WTF?!! Of course, because my landlord would love to receive an excuse instead of a check for rent this month. "I don't have the money for rent, because I'm a writer/comedian.  But I adore this building.  So secure." The above picture was found on .  One of the comments said that they thought this was an altered pic, but I have actually seen this happen to myself and co-workers.  And by-the-way, what if the server waiting on the woman was a single parent?  So the lady who wrote this has now started a domino effect on their server who is struggling to make ends meet.  And so on, and so on...  Get bent! I don't believe in saying that if you can't afford to go out, that you should never go out.  There are ways t

Breast Milk Macchiato

There are too many choices for milk nowadays.  Organic.  Almond.  Breast? Soon "breast milk" will be the new craze everywhere, and people will be ordering it for their Lattes thanks to the constant problem of breast feeding in restaurants. The policia teta have been called upon again to smack the cuffs on the latest perpetrators of breast feeders in restaurants.  This isn't the first, nor will it be the last time.  But to celebrate my 100th Bitter Bistro post, what better way to celebrate then to debate the issues of breast feeding in restaurants. I am going to say that I am "pro boob," but I am against them being out to feed your child while you are dining in a restaurant.  I get it.  It's natural, it's best for your child, but most people go out to a restaurant for a good time, and your breast-feeding is not included in the price of an entree. "Waiter!  Can you do something about this?  That woman's breast is exposed and I'm try

10 Ways To Get Better Service At A Restaurant

I have noticed that there are many variables that can lead to a bad dining experience, and for the customer to say that they received "poor service" has become cliche, and just the "go to" for when all things go bad in a restaurant.  Here is a Top 10 list to help customers have a positive experience the next time they dine out. 10.  SIT AT THE FIRST TABLE THE HOST GIVES YOU "This table's too round.  This table's too brown.  This table's just right."  You are not buying real estate.  So for you to pass on the first, then the second, and even the third table option the host gives you is beyond ridiculous.  The tables are all made the same, have four legs, four chairs, (if applicable,) and are strong enough to hold food, drinks, and purses.  And if you pass on a table, now you've messed up the floor plan that the host has prepared at the beginning of their shift, and everybody in the restaurant takes notice as you are aimlessly walking a
