Both jobs have their own unique level of stress, dependent on the high customer service demands required by both. Waiting staff are on their feet, they have to attend to many people and be 'on' for an extended period of time. However, they can make additional money through tips and in general, they can leave their work at the door when they go home. Office staff tend to have deadlines and responsibilities that need to be met on regular basis, and oftentimes overtime is warranted to get all the work done. There tends to be more workplace conflict in an office, compared to a restaurant and there is a hierarchy that overrides the entire process. Office work can also create an environment of camaraderie and cohesiveness, and a team helping each other. Whereas, oftentimes waiting staff want the tips for themselves and try to outdo each other.
