Pram - Guess you know nothing about restaurants in St. Louis and absolutely nothing about Applebees. Waitress hourly pay, minimum wage for employees tip eligible, $2.35 per hour.
My daughter once was a waitress for Applebees in KC area. Quote from her it was the worst job and worst place she ever worked. People frequenting Applebees are not "known" as big tippers. She worked her a$$ off while in school for them and none of us will even enter an Applebees any more.
