"I feel that, once benefits and 401k were included, I was probably getting overpaid compared to most servers or bartenders. However, that's kind of to be expected when you work for a casino. They're supposed to take better care of their employees than most places do because of their ability to generate more revenue."

"I think it is because I live in a border town that my salary is lower than it would be if I was in a much larger city. The salary and types of establishments that other cities have don't exist here yet. Slowly El Paso is really shining. It will bring bigger companies in, and hopefully the money as well. The opportunity to move to another job for money, well, I like to be faithful. If the company treats me well, I prefer to stay with the company. Hoping that I am making plenty of money."

"The tips here are a joke, you can't make any money because the drinks require so much effort to make and most go to the wait staff so the customers aren't seeing how much effort you have to put into each drink to make it fresh so your tip out is meager. I bartended in a college town with a bunch of cheap college kids making $40/hr and I moved to DC to start a better life and I was making $15/hr at Daily Grill. It is not worth it to be an experienced bartender and work here."
