    Pros

    Flexible hours and fun people. Can learn a lot about the restaurant industry.

    Cons

    Too many responsibilities, not enough pay. I was both a Hostess and Bus girl. It was ridiculous. It's impossible to run a waitlist, take guests to their seats, answer the phones, keep the bathroom stocked and clean the tables all at the same time! All with a manager pressuring you to get people situated. (IM TRYING IM TRYING I JUST CANT DO IT FAST ENOUGH) All while making less than $10 an hour. (This could vary if you live in a more populated city where you may have more customers and make better tips). And No free food! Corporate restaurants usually do not give free food. But a 30% discount, or 50% for a shift meal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to have either multiple host/hostess or host/hostess and bus people! It cannot be done by just two people! Especially on a Friday or Saturday night!

    Pros

    fun environment and manager are ok

    Cons

    my restaurant is just not organized so we get more work to do than we need to and they need to hire more people to help with prep

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management need to step their game up and hire enough people to get the results that they want
