New to bartending! Can I save aside paycheck after paycheck?

So I just got hired at a local bar in my city. I ve never been a bartender before so they re training me on the spot. I m a 20 year old female, I was wondering how much they make. I was also wondering once I get my paychecks can I save aside the paychecks and save up my pay checks then take them to Citizens Bank.

Best Answer:

Francis: BEFORE you were hired, did you ask what the hours and pay will be?
That gives you an idea of what you'll make. You might get tips, but you can't depend on them.
As far as the checks, some employers use direct deposit — the money goes straight into your account,
Why would you save paychecks? If you are paid with a check, you need to get it into your bank relatively quickly so the employers books can be balanced. They don't want a bunch of outstanding checks that they can't account for.

Other answer:

Francis:
1) bartenders earn whatever the location pays the bartender per hour. Usually its around or close to minimum wage, (depending on location or state), but usually they make up for it in tips.

2) When you get your paycheck, you will either get it as a physical check, or they will send it electronically (direct deposit) into your bank account. If you choose to collect a physical check, you can deposit it right away, or you can not deposit it, and save them up until you have a bunch, and deposit them all at the same time. (So to answer your question, yes.)

However, if you choose to wait, 1) your company might not like it (especially near the end of the business year) because they are trying to balance their record books and/or 2) take note of the check – many checks say void after 90 or 180 days. If you wait too long to deposit, it will become void, and then the banks won't deposit them.

The amount you get paid depends on how much in tips you get above your base (usually minimum wage) rate. You either get paid with a paper check or a direct deposit to the bank account of your choice. Depositing multiple checks should not be an issue. Though it would look odd because many people live paycheck to paycheck.

Ur parents hopefully can explain teach you about budgets money taxes saving locally.
If not local educated adults and libraries can.
