Being a hostess was okay. I got to meet a lot of cool customers and other employees. It was a good starting job and really helped me to learn to take initiative and get things going. It was a lot of stuff to do at once (greet and seat, ring up customers, clean area, roll silverware, etc) and you had to decide what was priority.
However, the employees are very competitive and can be rude. The managers don't try to help you, they just yell at you in front of everyone (the main manager was very nice, she helped). The hours were poor.
discounted lunch, nice customers
