I Tried to Become a Waitress at Junior’s

By

In Vulture’s video series, The Deep End, our video producer Madison Mills finds out out how hard it is to make it in New York by trying various careers she has no experience with whatsoever.

What does it take to make it as a waitress in New York? I have no idea. I’ve never been a server and I’m extremely prone to spills. Regardless, I decided to find out. So I tried to become a server at Junior’s, a NYC restaurant known for its cheesecake. It wasn’t pretty.
