Waiter

Stress

There's lots of stress to this job. Between fussy guests, temperamental chefs, lackluster benefits, and a rushed work environment, you can expect to feel that you're on the go and giving it your all almost every day. Long hours working at times when everyone else you know is home enjoying themselves (like all those family gatherings for the important holidays) lends to more stress as you're constantly trying to explain that you have to work.
