What do you think of when you think of “”waitress jobs”"? Perhaps you think of these types of jobs as a way to earn a little extra money while you’re going to school. However, especially if you’re pursuing a degree in hotel management or something similar, waitress jobs can be much more than a way to earn a little extra money. They can actually provide you on the job experience that will do well for you in your future career.

Hotel management as a career

Do you like people? Do you thrive in a fast-paced, ever-changing environment? If so, hotel management may just be for you. Although this may be one of the “”lower paid”" management jobs available, it may be perfect for you if you’re not as much the corporate type. There are many perks to hotel management, too. Let’s take a look at some of them:

Options for bonuses

A lot of hotels pay their managers bonuses to supplement yearly salaries. The bonus system is generally based upon the scores you get when customers are surveyed about the service they received. The better your scores, the better your bonus pay.

Free hotel stays

If you travel, large hotel chains especially offer discounted or even free rooms to staff; they’ll also offer savings to friends and family, in many cases. Therefore, when it’s time to go on vacation, staying in one of your chain’s hotels can save you literally hundreds of dollars over the course of your stay.

Free eats

Think your grocery bill is too high? One of the perks of hotel management is getting to eat on the job — including those waitress jobs you may be doing while you’re still in school. Although not every hotel offers free food to its employees, a lot of them do; that adds up quickly when you consider how much groceries cost over the course of a year. (Chances are you’re not the one doing the cooking, either — another bonus!)

Free clothes

That is, free uniforms. While some hotels will charge you for your uniforms if you have to wear them, many hotels give them to staff free of cost or at least at a discount. That can save you significant money on wardrobe expenses. Even when you move into management, some hotels offer dress “”stipends”" or the ability to shop for clothing as a business expense to the hotel or at least at a discount so that management always looks professionally dressed.

A work environment that’s always exciting

This isn’t any kind of corporate grind. If you like excitement and you like people, hotel management may be for you — and waitress jobs are a great way to get your foot in the door and then work your way up while you’re still in school. You’ll meet all kinds of interesting people from all walks of life, and may even come across a celebrity or two during your career.
