What % should the host, busser and bartender get from a waitress when they all get tiped out in a night?

For Instance, If a waitress makes $100 in a night, does the busser, host and bartender (all who make more per hour) still get 10%? Do they still get their percentage if they did a poor job, or just were not needed? If the restaurant gets busy, should the bartender take tables or help the wait staff?
