Well that's pretty obvious
Like a Prayer
Anon gets Revenge
Stand up for ALL women
- What kind of dumbass tries to get buck with a bouncer, they're…
Anon gets Revenge
It did it often and got my douchbag ass handed to me every time. Don't know why I did it, just a drunken asshole I guess, but hey better thqn going for weaker opponents isn't it?
I am a better person now
As a bouncer allow me to provide a PSA
Please do not threaten to fight me. It's late, I'm tired from working my job before here, I just want to go home and snuggle my dog and watch jojo on the couch. You are more than likely too drunk to stand which is why I am asking you politely to step outside while I call you an uber and get you some water, or you're a young girl with daddy's credit card in which case Chad, like the many other Chads before him, is already trying to get you to leave after backing down terrified the instant I said "Ok" to his threat of a fight
Please just let me watch the clock and stop giving me shit for turning down you buying me a drink "to stop looking like such a hardass man"
whats the pay like? im desperately trying to find a bouncing job
Don't. It sucks
Every bar is gonna be different. In Newark I got $15/hr cash every night for 12 hours, paid at the end of the night, 2 days worked then a day off
My event bar we get tipped out because we double as barbacks. Minimum is $50 a night, 20% from each bartender put into a pot and split at the end of the week evenly among all bouncers/barbacks
which is bullshit because I work 4 days John works 2 and we both get $200
My normal place now is $10/hr, on the books, bi weekly pay. It's only 10-3 or 8-3 depending on the night, but when i wait 2 weeks for $400 and the barback who disappears for 40 minutes at a time and doesn't do his job leaves with $150-$300 cash every night, you tend to get a bit pissy
Barbacking isn't as fun, but if you are doing your job it's busier and the pay is almost always better. I'd reccomend that first to get your foot in the door somewhere if you have no bouncing experience and work your way up
im pretty frustrated actually. ive applied to the same place 3 tims in the last couple years and they act like theyre interested but never call. meanwhile the bouncers there dont have half the experience with de-escalating a confrontation and fighting that i do. i want to be a bouncer because it's a good fit for me. i;m not just some big dude who looks scary. martial arts is my life. what you described actually doesn't even sound awful. i have a day job at a deli now. fucking sucks. get paid minimum wage to do more work than everyone else in the grocery store, and i get talked to like im an asshole by people i cant even politely ask to not talk to me in the manner they are. and then comes the management. i call in sick and they threaten to take away sundays which is time and a half. at least as a bouncer i could work sick.
Or have you ever stopped to think they don't need a bouncer at all? Or they're just not hiring? Go somewhere else, bars are a dime a dozen in the US
If they're not interested the first time, don't go back
You say martial arts is your life but that means literally nothing. Being a bouncer and hiring a bouncer are two different things. I know what you should have in a bouncer because I am one, but someone hiring a bouncer is just going to look for someone big and scary if they've never done the job themselves before. If you can't get a job as a bouncer without too much difficulty along with how angry you seem to be about your current job, I'm gonna say you're not cut out for being a bouncer. I've worked retail and fast food, just because the shirt now says SECURITY doesn't mean you're allowed to do shit if they're just talking bad to you
Again, bouncing is 99% making a first impression on someone. If the owner doesn't think "This guy could fucking kill me easily if I fuck around," the drunk patrons won't either. And nobody is looking at your martial arts history when you're checking an ID
>the dudes in the strip club i go to aren't intimidating at all
>im a 6ft tall ginger with a murderous look in his eyes
>i'm taller and beefier than half of the guys i've seen doing the detail there
>what? you think i sit here like "AAAAAAAAAAAARGH DELI WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORK" every time i have work? lol. you told me about how much you hate your job. i told you that i think my job is worse than what you described
>your second comment is the only one that makes sense out of the two
Probably why they don't want you. Just over the internet you're too gung-ho about being Billy Badass
See above. Hint:
you're probably bullshitting because of a complex
I never told you how much I hate my job. I rather enjoy it actually. You asked me what the pay was like, I told you it was shit and why
That's because you have terrible reading comprehension skills
Stop thinking you're the shit and better than the people who have the job you want. If they wanted you, they'd have hired you. Instead you go back to the same place 3 times in a year and make yourself known as the annoyance to the guy in charge. Just move on
>i never told you i hate the job
"honestly don't it sucks"
proceed to bitch about the downsides of the job
3 times in the course of 3 years faggot
gung ho? you're talking like i walk in there like "who wants to fight? i gotta prove myself around here."
you're a retard
Do you mind if someone buys you a drink/non alcoholic drink? I have a weird thing about 'rewarding' people with shitty jobs. I just want to make their day better.
I get free sodas and red bulls so I usually have one like a foot away from me anyway, but most places don't let you take drinks from customers. I don't take any anyway because one of the bouncers at another bar I worked at got roofied on accident so I'm spooked now
is there like a specific height and weight required to be a bouncer?
or can any autist straight outta their parent's house do it?
Either look scary enough to be a deterrent
me, at 6'3 245 and doing strongman/powerlifting for a few years. I'm not really muscly, I just have a large chest and broad shoulders and a permanent scowl from years of videogames. College kids get scared which helps
or have some kind of professional training
at the bar where I just work events, there's a guy who's ex army artillery and infantry, a retired detective, the owner is 27 years DEA undercover agent (lots of stories, knows every cop, a living PBA card, also likes to drink before showing up and is often the cause of the fight), a guy who teaches Krav Maga, a Football coach, and an ex local cop
. I have absolutely no training of any kind whatsoever except for being from Newark, looking kinda big, and being able to remove drunk with efficiency. The guy I work with sometimes at my regular bar
he's one of the kitchen guys who bounces with me Thursday-Saturday
is 7' 360 neckbeard with a WoW tattoo, but he's also my gym buddy so I know he can handle things if needed
In my experience
reverse this for Daytona bars because those people do nothing but drink and smoke meth
95% of the job is standing around looking mean but being bored out of your mind, 4% is talking to people be they underage kids who need to fuck off, regulars who are making plans, the band asking if you'll help pack the truck later for $20, etc. 1% is fights. Every single owner is going to tell you in interview "Oh well ya see we have a No Tolerance policy for violence on both sides, and we always solve things calmly and meet compromises and blah blah blah" you always try talking to the person first very calmly
exception being they hit someone, in which case the second you're near them from any angle you hit them and drag them out
, but it always ends the same way of "FUCK YOU!" *turns around and goes back to drinking someone else's beer*. You're supposed to get backup before removing someone or doing anything, which is a lesson I learned by getting stabbed in the shoulder one day then having a homeless guy pull a gun on me the next week. After you drag them out the door and throw them down the stairs onto the street
yes it's legal, sure call your lawyer for assault because we have cameras everywhere 9 witnesses and every event gets filed with the police since we have your license
it's about 50/50 wether they'll call you a pussy and say they wanna fight
all you have to do is walk back up the steps and we'll happily oblige, since that makes it a trespass and Stand Your Ground is now on the bars side
and walk away, or they actually did replace their blood with liquor and walk back up the steps to get punched in the face
or they have 12 friends inside and you may or may not get your ass kicked because the new fucker who never stopped reminding you he was a marine ran the fuck off at the first sign of trouble leaving you without backup and having to explain to a cop why you have no shirt and are stomping a man's head against the curb at 2am
So to answer your question it's really just no manlets allowed
A combination of situational control compared to the next guy on the street, experience, and history with the bar, I imagine.
No experience with bars, but if I were to hire...
If you're the most effective person applying, you've got that box checked.
If you have experience, it's also good (drunk behavior is highly unpredictable.)
If you haven't broken anything, have worked there before, or spend time there often, your appeal as a hire is higher. Constantly looking for bouncers and having constantly changing bouncers is bad for management and for customers.
Note that I listed Situational Control and not strength or build. A bouncer who can defuse or calm a drunk is even more valued than one who can down a drunk in a few seconds. (Having both is preferred.)
sounds like the beginnings of a messiah complex
You said it in your question. Douchebags
