I worked here during a summer between university terms as a hostess. I'd say the only reason you should only apply here is out of desperation. My schedule was unexpected/changed every week. The managers & supervisors are completely uninterested in your needs--they solely care about gaining customers. My cat died, I was sick, and had to leave work during my shift--I was physically ill. The managers were nowhere to be found, so I left a message and phone call. I got written up the next day, as if it was my fault.
We were not granted breaks; we had to sneak food while working. I was never given food from the restaurant. Hostesses were never allowed to sit down; I had to stand for 9 hour shifts with no relief, and my feet were damaged for long after I quit. Hostesses do not earn tips, but are expected to pick up SAs work if it's busy. If you're shoulders are slumped, you get chided. If you're not smiling for a minute, you get chided. I often had to work double shifts: I'd have to work 7-1, leave, and come back for 5-10. If you do not participate in the bratty (as coworkers would call it) bantering environment, you do not fit in. One coworker called me a b***h once, and another agreed with him. If I made any sort of complaint, no one supported me.
I was kind towards customers and had no qualms with the official hostess duties, but the management is completely awful. The restaurants have no consideration for their employees; your needs do not matter.
The only good thing I earned from this job was my minimum wage, and good resume material.
