Absolutely horrible. I was like a chicken without a head.

Hostess (Former Employee)
Plantation, FL

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

ConsToo 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 Senior ManagementYou 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!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Friday's will give away food… Advice to Senior Management: Implement other, more creative strategies to calm customers who have complaints--not every problem should be fixed with free food or… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
