"The hostess dictates a customer's first and last impression of a restaurant, so excellent customer service skills are essential. Expect to answer questions about how you would greet customers on the phone and in person to ensure they leave with a positive impression. As hostess stations often get hectic during peak restaurant hours, be prepared to discuss how you would handle long lines and impatient customers."
If someone yells at you because you can't seat them, how do you handle the situation?
I would calmly reply with the wait time and offer them a seat at the bar.
