  • "I can start off as a Barback or Server and just learn to bartend."


    Not all bars are willing or able to invest the time it takes to train someone and teach a solid foundation of bartending.

  • Many bars have the General Manager or Bar Manager that does not have any knowledge of bartending but are in charge of hiring bartenders.

  • Without proper training in place, this leads to inconsistency, and pretty much a free-for-all.

  • Along with being taught incorrect ways of doing things, pick up horrible habits, and you might never actually get to bartend.
