  • Compensation| During the 2-week training period, and for certain limited activities thereafter (e.g., set-up for buy-outs, company meetings) you will get the applicable minimum wage for your location: $16.28/hr. After training, the pay range is the minimum wage for your location ($16.28/hour) to $75/hour, which is calculated by a variable base amount per hour (ranging from $1 to $16.28/hour) plus 15% commission on your individual gross sales (gross sales less comps), which is paid 100% to you and not shared with support staff, plus any voluntary tips or gratuities paid at the guests discretion, which are also paid entirely to you.* The average earnings, including commissions and bumps, are approximately $35-$75/hour; however, this rate is based on your gross sales and bumps, and as such may vary and is not guaranteed.

* In the unlikely event the base rate + commissions in a workweek do not meet or exceed the minimum wage, a server will be paid at least the location-specific minimum wage ($16.28 hour).
