    Is a waiter a bad job. I got training but not sure if I should go or not. Is it worth doing it, or would it be better to spend that time elsewhere like revising. Or possibly find a less strenuous job?

    It depends on your personality. You need to be friendly and happy to customers. Sometimes it can get busy, so food might be delayed and customers might be rude/unhappy, so you need to be able to work well under pressure and keep your cool, dealing with any complaints that may arise. You will be on your feet most of the evening, carry plates and drinks, so make sure you have comfortable shoes. The pay isn't great, but can be boosted with tips. It is a good first job to have as it does teach you skills and good customer service. If you can make time for working and aren't too busy with schoolwork, you should do it.
