some frequently asked questions answered
There are plenty of questions we get asked over and over, so we figured we'd drop in a quick FAQ section.
1. Can you find me a bar job?No, we can't find you a bar job.
Firstly, we're not an employment agency. Sure, we've looked into a job
listing page before now, but it's just not viable at present. Secondly,
most of these questions come from folks from abroad. It's unlikely you
folks already have RSA certification. You can find out more on how to
get it by visiting NSW Tafe.
2. Why do you have pubs listed with no reviewsA few possible
reasons may apply. a) we may have all address details and a picture,
but no review. b) we may have reviewed very recently and are just
awaiting the review coming in. c) It may be a relatively important
venue, so it's there so that users can comment. It may even be a
combination of the three, or a simple oversight on our part.
3. Do you make a lot of money/Get a lot of free drinks?HaHaHaHa.
No, we actually spend a lot more than we make. Hosting alone costs well
over $100 per month, then there's ongoing expenses, beer money, cab
fares and berocca to pay for. You thought we made money? ha! And no,
the banner ads don't come anywhere near covering it. At the moment
we're doing this mostly for the love of it. And for the beer, of
4. Can you come and review my pub tonight?Well, if we're in the
area we may well be able to. However we do need a little more notice
than 'tonight'. We may have to cancel something else. We may have to
arrange a designated driver. And we may never even make it - when
heading out for a serious review evening we do tend to get heavily
sidetracked - after all, these are pubs we're talking about. So no, we
can't always promise an exact time when we'll visit. We usually prefer
it that way, usually arriving anonymously then introducing ourselves
later. If you knew we were coming we'd never get away with that. We
will however, drop a calling card when we stop by.
5. Why no maps?
We recently negotiated maps through a partner. We're now in the process of developing the map functionality.
