Banquet Food Server Jobs

Banquet Food Server Overview

Banquet food server jobs share many similarities with other types of serving jobs. These men and women typically work for banquet halls that host wedding receptions, parties and other special events. Workers take care of refilling dishes on a buffet and bring plates and dishes to tables during sit down events. Banquet servers carry large trays of food and drinks to guests, and they take care of any needs those guests have during their meals. Though most facilities pay workers an hourly rate, some workers earn additional tips from serving. Banquet servers work at hotels and other venues, and some restaurants hire part-time servers to handle special events. Restaurants and catering jobs open to banquet servers include food server jobs and food preparation workers.

Banquet Food Server Education Requirements

Banquet servers do not need a college degree or any type of formal training. After accepting a position with a new company, the company will train the worker on what to do during different events. They teach them how to handle food safely, what to do in the kitchen area and how to speak with guests. Servers can work their way up to bartender, manager or another more advanced position. Being an active listener, understanding how to interact with people and having upper body strength can also be beneficial for servers.

Banquet Food Server Job Market

The number of food service workers in general will increase by 12 percent between 2012 and 2022. Banquet food server jobs will likely increase at the same rate. According to statistics, more than 500,000 new food service jobs will become available by 2022, which will add a significant amount of positions to the more than 4 million jobs currently available. Workers will find open positions at wedding venues, restaurants, hotels and conference centers.

Banquet Food Server Salary

Banquet servers make an average of $7.16 to $12.63 an hour or a salary of $19,000 to $36,000 a year. The amount varies based on how many events a server works, the size of those events and whether the parent company allows workers to accept tips.
