The school is good for teaching you drinks & mixing methods. The people who teach the classes know their stuff & most of them are cool. I took the class for two reasons; one being to learn bartending & the other, because of their "Job

At first I was skeptical simply because I did not want to pay hard earned money on a program that I wasn't positive would develop useful/marketable skills. However, after taking the leap and enrolling I soon realized that the class sizes

THEY DO NOT HELP ANYONE GET A JOB I STILL TALK TO TWO GIRLS WHO WENT THERE TOO AND THEY STILL HAVE NO JOBS TOO.\r
THINK ABOUT IT ONE PERSON DOES ALL THE JOB PLACEMENT FOR DOZENS OF GRADUATES EVERY WEEK.

Very few bars are going to hire someone right off the street with zero experience. You'll be lucky to find a spot as a barback without some kind of bar experience on your resum. This is where the bartending school comes in. The school is highly respected here in town, and most bar/club managers in Nashville consider a bartending school diploma equivalent to "on the job experience" and will hire you. Now of course they do have to like you. You've gotta have personality, professionalism, etc. No one is going to just hand you a job simply because you attended the school. You still have to go through the interview process just like anybody else.

Which brings us to the job placement.... I'm convinced that the job placement supervisor over there knows every bar/club/restaurant employee in Nashville. The man has contacts all over town. I mean think about it, at least half the bartenders in town attended the bartending school at some point. Which means that every time someone quits, gets fired, opens a new bar, etc., he knows about it. Basically, if there's a job opening in town, it's going to be on their job placement site. Sure, it's true, they tell you about jobs that have been posted on craigslist or in the paper as well, but from my own personal experience, most of their listings come from their own contacts here in town.

They also teach you proper bartending technique and etiquette. Which is more important than one might realize. Like any skill, if you never learn the basics, you will develop bad habits. I've had nothing but success since I attended the school in '06. I've literally doubled my annual income, and I'm currently bartending in downtown Nashville.

Pros: JOB PLACEMENT, EXPERIENCE

Cons: THEY DON'T HAVE ONE OF THESE IN EVERY CITY

.

Their idea of job placement is giving you a list of places that have want ads on craigslist or in the paper. They dont place you anywhere, you just go out on your own and fill out applications and say you went to a bartending school and hope you land a job. the other review was probably written by a recruiter or owner. waste your money here and youll regret it.

Pros: you WILL learn how to make drinks

Cons: $600 and NO JOB PLACEMENT

I went to PBS when I first moved to Nashville. I graduated and job placement helped me get a job almost immediately. From the experience I got there, I went on to bartend at one of the high end steakhouses in town and made fabulous money, great friends and even better contacts. I have since moved from Nashville and have to admit I miss bartending in that wonderful little city. PBS made that happen for me.
