Cómo empezar una carrera profesional en un bar

En el sector de la restauración suele haber una alta demanda de personal, sobre todo en verano y periodos de vacaciones y en zonas concurridas por turistas. Trabajar en un bar es una de las salidas profesionales posibles en este sector que requiere el trato directo con el cliente y la manipulación de bebidas y, muchas veces, alimentos.

¿Qué hacen las personas que trabajan en un bar?

Las funciones de un camarero varían en función del tipo de local. No es lo mismo trabajar en el bar de un hotel de cinco estrellas que trabajar en una cafetería o en un bar de copas de noche. Algunas de las tareas que realizan este tipo de profesionales son:

  • Atender y servir mesas.
  • Preparar café.
  • Servir bebidas alcohólicas.
  • Manipular alimentos.
  • Cobrar a los clientes.
  • Manejar la caja registradora.
  • Master the TPV command system.
  • Control the stock of products.
  • Make product orders.
  • Clean tables, utensils and bar counter.
  • Make cash closing.

These functions may also vary depending on the position of responsibility in the bar: the person in charge will have tasks more linked to the supervision and general operation of the business, as well as the accounting aspects.

What qualities should they have?

Direct dealing with the client requires that the professional be kind, patient and understanding. It is also important that you know how to withstand stressful situations and be quick and decisive when the place is full of customers. A waiter must be clean, tidy, energetic and careful, as well as master the coffee machine, the POS device, the data card for card payments, and the rest of the devices that are usually used in bars.

Many times the bar manager himself already trains the waiters to adapt to each installation in general.

What qualification is needed?

No studies are necessary to work in a bar, but it may be necessary to have some licenses such as the handling of alcoholic beverages and / or food. For positions in bars of luxury hotels, some training in cocktails or studies related to hospitality may be required. Gastronomy, hospitality and tourism-related studies are a plus when hiring.
