Testimonials From Graduates

Here are some testimonials from graduates of Riverside Bartending School. Read on; you may know someone. These are real people who attended the school.


Hunter - "The whole crew at the Riverside school, helped me pass my tests. I scheduled a job placement appointment with Nate, and he offered me several jobs during the first week. I worked for a while and made good money, but I decided I wanted something closer to home. I called Nate, he answered, and he helped me find a job less than 5 miles from my house. I am making better money than I have ever made. Thank you to everyone at the school and thank you to Nate. He told me from the beginning he would help me and he did exactly what he said he was going to do from day one."


Tina - "Nate! Its tina, I just wanted to thank you. You have always encouraged me, had my back, and gave me the confidence to pursue a bartending career. So you know I ended up being bar manager at the hotel in palm springs. But now I work as a bartender at Hemet AMF Lanes (bowling) I love it! Making great friends and great tips! AMF centers nationwide had a contest for bartenders and servers to sell as many featured drinks of the month, watermelon mists, cinnamon toast crunch shots, honey badgers, anyway, for 2-months contest for the western region of the country. I was in 13th place then 9th, 8th, 4th and ended up in 2nd! The higher the placing, the more tickets we get for a drawing to win a new 2016 KIA soul car! I don't think I will win...but who knows...woohoo...and my general manager said his boss called him and told him that I am a top seller! I make more $ per hr for the bowling alley than other employees? thank u again for being you, Nate!"


Atsuki - "I moved here from Japan and started bartending school riverside a few weeks after. Nate and Phil help me more than anyone ever help in my whole life. He got me a job at a sushi bar, and I work my way up to Salted Pig in less than one and a half years. This school is the best. I am so grateful for this school."


Alexus - "I started school, and two weeks later, I graduated. I was skeptical about the bartending school, but I am not now. I worked my first event Nate assigned to me to get me by while we were finding me a permanent bartending job. The first event I worked, I made $100.00 an hour. I worked 8 hours and made $800.00 on a Sunday. I am totally hooked now. I am working at 2nd Avenue Saloon in Upland now, and I am doing very well. Thanks, Phil, Nate, and the rest of the crew, you guys are awesome."


Mike - "I needed a job desperately. I called the school, and it sounded great. I did not want to get my hopes up because usually when it is too good to be true, it ends up that way. I took a chance and put my money on the line. No kidding, Nate called someone in my placement appointment, and I interviewed two days later. I am now the manager of the bar at Jiro's Japanese Restaurant in San Bernardino. Riverside Bartending School is the best-kept secret in the IE. I recommend this school to everyone I know."

One of the best training facilities I’ve been to. You learn what you need and then some, employers should recognize and respect the training received from this school. The staff knows what they’re talking about and give great insight. I recommend ten times over for anyone interested in the field.

I cannot speak highly enough about this school. The staff are truly awesome. I had learned so much in 3 1/2 weeks due to their unwavering encouragement and motivation to succeed. Not only did I learn to make upwards of 300 different mixed drinks and cocktails, but I had so much fun doing it. Additionally, I would like to thank Lindsay, Phil, and of course Nate for everything I have accomplished so far. I am already getting interviews for potential jobs. I am so proud to have been a part of this great institution and to all the friends I have made.

Thank you all,

Mike Bugos,
