I've decided to invest my money into bartending school
    #14426721 - 05/09/11 10:33 PM (10 years, 10 days ago)

I just got my paycheck and I want that job. I'm going to give hot bitches free drinks and then get into their panties. I am going to get big tips and get drunk everynight after work. Can't wait to learn!

You don't have any better chance of getting a job as a bartender with a degree from one of those bartending schools. They want to know that you have real life experience and can interface with people. You can learn how to make any cocktail on the Internet anyway... What's this school going to teach you?

You pay them money then at the end of the course you are no closer to getting a job than you were before. They offer a job placement program so you think they will get you a job when you're done but they don't, they give you a list of bar addresses in the area. Everything taught there can be learned online and bar tending jobs are acquired via word of mouth and networking, rarely if ever through a bar tending school.

Save your money.


Work as a bar back/server,learn ur shit on the fly..do a good job and they'll eventually move you to bar tend.Best way.


I mean...how much could they teach you really??Not worth it.

Yeah man, just go get a job. You don't need a degree to be a bar tender. It might help to start out at a restaurant with a bar first, to gain experience.

Usually you get a job at a bar and you start off doing security and working the door, then you get promoted to bar back, then after you've payed your dues you can become a bartender. Bar tending school is a joke to people in the bar industry. It's a well known scam.

I can't do security I'm not the bouncer type. I have a good personality they are going to put me at the bar when they see my qualifications.

Everyone summed it up.

I've never met a bartender that went to bartending school. All you need to know as a bartender is learned on the job or in a little shot book.

Be good with people, be good looking, don't be a retard. That's all it takes to succeed!

Alright fine, I guess $450 isn't worth it. I'll buy some acid and slang that instead I suppose. :shrug:

So true. Most of the people I know that did that couldn't get a bar tending job for shit.

This was in the Minneapolis area, don't know how it is in the rest of the country/world.

If you can afford it and really want to take the class, its not like its going to HURT your chances. It can only help if you really think about it. You need every damn extra thing possible to slap on a resume these days.

people that did go to bartending school often got laughed at, one guy
was so cocky he tried to quiz me on what was in several drink, what's
in a cosmopolitan, what's in a grass hopper, what's in a rum and coke,
to the last one I answered ICE... he laughed and said I was wrong, I
told him to fix me a rum and coke, first thing he did was use the glass
to scoop up some ice... he fucked up on two accounts, one was the ice,
second and what really barred him from being hired was scooping ice with
the glass... had the glass broken or chipped I'd have had to drain and
clean the ice well or risk a lawsuit, saving a second could cost millions
