"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."
What would you do if the resturant begins to get extremly busy?
Create a wait list with the parties name, the time they came in, the number of people and phone number if they decide to wait outside of the resturant. I would also go around the resturant to let the servers and cooks know that a lot of people will be coming in.
