    Question regaring rank. Can somebody tell me if it's correct?

    1) There are three different ranking of server/waitress. The salary scale are determined by the rank, the higher the rank the more salary.

    If I understand you, I would say:

    There are three different salary ranks of servers. The salary scale is determined by the rank; the higher the rank, the higher the salary.

    Servers is fine for male and female workers. Otherwise, use "waiters/waitresses".

    I welcome comments from others.

    Many people now tend to prefer words that include both men and women equally, eschewing the traditional 'sexist' terms.

    Examples include: actor (for both males and females), police officer, flight attendant, server.
