Bartending is an occupation people frequently associate with tipping. Bartenders often serve large groups of people at one time and these customers typically leave a tip for each drink ordered. Unlike waiters and waitresses, bartenders receive a relatively decent median hourly pay. Median hourly tips of nearly $10 make bartending a well-paying job.
