Servers Waiter Waitress Overview

Servers, waiters and waitresses are responsible for taking meal orders, delivering food and managing diners in a restaurant.

Servers also need to have basic math skills and must be able to multitask in managing the needs of various tables during their shift. Shifts are spent standing and carrying trays to and from tables, so physical fitness and balance are required. Those with the skills necessary for serving jobs may also qualify for positions such as bartenders, wine stewards or food services supervisors.
