I feel like I wouldn't get many tips as a server because I'm a guy, is this really true or am I just making it up?

Believe me, I've seen some women have terrible luck with tips due to the poor service they provide. It can happen to anyone who isn't good at the job, male or female

I wouldn't worry about this too much. From my previous experience, you'll receive plenty of tips as long as you're good at what you do

I’ve seen men make tons of money in fine dining!

Male waiter here. I can confirm, I do pretty well on tips just by trying to be funny and giving memorable service

It's true that it's common for women to make more tips than men. However, that doesn't mean men can't do extremely well.

I think it all depends on your attitude and dedication. I'm a woman and I've had male coworkers who earn much more in tips for making customers laugh.

It might actually surprise you. My friend started working at a restaurant and thought he wouldn't get tips because he's (not being rude, just honest) not the best looking guy out there, but he's gotten some sizable tips and a few phone numbers. He's one of those guys that makes you instantly feel comfortable with him, like old buddies.

You just gotta leverage what you got. I'm not the best looking guy out there but I try to be funny and personable and that tends to work out pretty well for me. Find your angle and work it

You would do fine as long as you performed the job well. My experience at least. If you make people wait longer than they should then they won't tip you no matter how attractive they think you are. Case in point: I work with this one gal who has gotten everywhere by her looks (really gorgeous but almost zero personality). She gets some tips but not many because she's awful at her job. I think she might be "encouraged to leave" or fired soon, people keep complaining and I'm just standing back watching it happen

That’s all in your head. Or you’re in the wrong restaurant. My coworkers make and female all bring in 20% or more on every check.

was on my phone waiting for light to turn so I could cross when some dude snuck up on me and asked for a cigarette. I turned around and before I could evaluate anything, said “yo back up bro”. Not sure if he was drunk or homeless, maybe both (tall boy in hand with ripped shirt and pants), but seemed maybe harmless after I got a good look. immediately he got pissed and started following me asking me random questions, but was my response not appropriate?

Moving on from Hotels (Hospitality)?

I’ve been thinking about this for awhile now, but it is very to commit to actually accept a new job offer since I really do love my job. My only complaint is, the pay vs workload is very small. I’m a manager now and my property offered me a director position… but the salary is still low! To make six figures, it’ll take another 5-6 years to grind it out.

Should I move on and go to a different industry? Opinions are welcome! Thanks in advance.

So, I started working full-time at a retail store for clothing and accessories and after a brief dispute with my supervisor (my bike broke down which made me come in 20 minutes late to y shift) they told me that it seems like working is not my priority, so to make it easier on me I would only get 20 hours a week. Things are tight as it is, I can't start working half-time. Please someone share some advice or any job opportunities you've seen out there
