As a hostess, a typical day at work starts with confirmation calls for reservations, turning on lights, cleaning up, wiping menus, getting day started. During the shift you take phone calls, seat people, occasionally have to help clear tables, always a manager on duty in case you need one but they often put you and your work ethic down. I learned the computer system they use to make reservations and transactions. Coworkers were fun for the most part but some seemed to take their home life to work with them and would be in a bad mood, some would put you down on a regular basis. Hardest part of the job was dealing with people who had a complaint, didn't want to wait for a table, etc. Most enjoyable was when everyone is in a good mood and the night goes smooth with minimal complaints.
