Bouncer Job Description

A bouncer is a person or a machine that stands guard at the door of a nightclub, bar, or restaurant to prevent customers from entering who are underage.

Bouncers may be tasked with keeping out underage drinkers and criminals such as thieves and prostitutes.

A lot of nightclubs and bars hire bouncers to ensure safety of their customers.

However, some bouncers employ bullying tactics to discourage customers from drinking or dancing, or to eject them if they are intoxicated or disruptive.

Bouncers work to help clubs appeal to a diverse clientele of customers, thus making clubs more profitable.
