    Pros

    Pro is the discount (but also con because you have to pay for it). Easy to move up to bartender or manager.

    Cons

    The employee discount. I saw an amazing buser get fired because he had a sip of coke and wasn't on the discount program. Selling LSC are awful and people do not want them. If you do not sell, you get the worst sections, do not get cut if resturant is slow, and have to go to morning meetings (when your shift is at night). I never cried so much in a staff bathrooms.

    Pros

    Averaged $11 an hr including tips

    Cons

    A lot of people quitting made it so that I had to work alone or with only one other person most of the time which was difficult considering you were expected to stand at the host stand all the time while all perform other duties.
