"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 is 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.
