OT: NOLA Serving/Bartending Jobs Question

nola17 | Sep 20, 2008 09:07 AM


I am moving to NOLA in October and have a question for any servers/bartenders there:

I have restaurant experience (5+ years ago however) up here in the northeast, and I've never been asked for "salary requirements" - we just got paid a minimum wage salary and lived off the tips.

But perusing the various employment sections of all the NOLA restaurant sites, all of the application forms have a "Salary Requirement" section. Whats the story with this?

Do y'all typically get paid a salary + tips? What is a fair "salary requirement" for someone looking to get back into the business?

Thank you for the response.
