Cocktail Waitress Resume Samples

A Cocktail Waitress will serve alcoholic beverages and food items at nightclub and bars. The job description is similar to that of a waitress, the only difference being that these waitresses are trained in serving cocktails and other beverage items. Some of the day-to-day activities listed on a Cocktail Waitress Resume include these – interacting with customers and taking orders, making recommendations, serving them cocktails and other beverages, providing bills and collecting payments, handling multiple tables simultaneously, clearing and cleaning tables, assisting in opening and closing duties, taking inventory of supplies, and checking identification to ensure that alcoholic drinks are served as per age standards.

Employers want their potential staff to possess these abilities – a friendly and attentive nature, knowledge of beer, cocktails, wine and other drinks; above 18 years of age to serve alcohol, the ability to comply with local and federal liquor laws; and willing to take shifts.
