    what's around the going rate? I am supposed to start tonight at a club, but I'm having second thoughts about $8/hour under the table + they don't cover you if you get injured. I always figured those guys made about $100 a night, but maybe I thought wrong

    I've done it for about the past three or so years. 8/hr sucks. I've never made less than 100 cash and about 12 an hour if it's an on the books job.

    My friend who is kind of a like a freelance bouncer, he lives off the grid, does everything cash and does usually around 10-20 an hour under the table. But he knows people. And is a fucking giant and has tattoos everywhere, adding to his scary persona.

    $8 per/hour is low.

    But it also depends on the place. If stuff rarely goes down there and your main job is to be a door man then I guess its not half bad because you will likely get a few tips throughout the night.... However, if you are having to break up fights and take stuff outside somewhat often then that type of pay is not even close to being worth it.

    Bouncer jobs are worth it because of the extra pussy you get from being one!!! For some weird reason women trust the bouncers. I guess it's because you are there for your job not to pick up on them, or so they think!!

    How much you get paid depends on the bar. I got anywhere from $50.00 a night to $200.00 a night. However, the lower paying ones were more fun!!

    Yeah, I've been offered jobs by guys who already work in the bars. Oh you said tiny people. I dunno.

    I could do it in a college town but some places I wouldn't fuck with. Now if I was Mike Millers size...

    seriously considering doing this on the weekends for extra cash. But I'm not sure what would be expected of me. I mean obviously I'd rough someone up on the way out if they were being an asshole (use their head to open the door etc) but at the same time I wouldnt be prepared to take a guy out back with 2 other bouncers and kick the shit out of him.

    i did it earlier this year for 5-6months.

    15/hr



    shit was cool the first couple months...then it got boring and it was same ol shit.



    reason why i did it:

    #1. i broke up with my gf and it was good way too keep myself busy and keep my confident up.
    #2. i wanted to cut and it was a good way of putting my self OUT THERE and still go out while not drinking and still getting paid. (i got out thurs-saturday and drink all those days til i puke)
    #3. i wanted to try it
    #4. had a crush with one of the bartenders :mamoru: :o

    I went ahead and said fuck it. I don't really know if I'd be doing the door or breaking up fights. The club ain't the busiest of all clubs, but it can get somewhat busy. I'm gonna keep my eyes open for a better paying one and hopefully get on with it

    bouncers don't take the pay. All they do is check your ID and give you a bracelet or put an X on your hand. You give the money to the person working the register

    well, not cover..... our bar/pub/club had no cover.....but its close to university so i would always catch fake IDs and confescate it.

    after i get it......they always beg for it back.....thats when bribery works ;)
