Waiter

Fame

You won't become famous for doing your job as a waiter, but you may find that you become popular, at least within your restaurant. Quite often, with good establishments that have repeat guests, you may find that you are being requested. Guests who you have served—and served well—will specifically ask to be seated in your section. Good for you, since it means better tips and sometimes even recommendations to friends to try to get seated in your section. Your restaurant might even have an Employee of the Month program, which could be as close as you'll ever get to that Oscar you used to dream about. Keep your acceptance speech short and snappy…table four needs fresh bread.
