To become a service worker, you usually need a bachelor's degree and zero years of experience. The most common jobs before becoming a service worker are cashier, customer service representative, and internship. Hiring managers expect a service worker to have soft skills such as compassion, time-management skills, and communication skills. Once you have all the required skills and experience, it takes an average of less than 1 month of job training to become a service worker.
The national average salary for service workers is $30,045, but with the right certifications and experience, they can make up to $40,000. Getting a certification as a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) will help you to earn more as a service worker.
