Fast paced and stimulating, but a very hostile environment where the employees are concerned.
Pros: Half priced meals
Cons: Inconsistent schedule, unreliable pay
Almost everyday at LongHorn is an extremely busy day, as a host I am on a wait of at least a half an hour a night, often for longer. I've learned many things from working at LongHorn even though I've only been there for a few months. I think the most important things I have learned are how important communication between co-workers is, and how to multitask under pressure. Generally, I get along with all my co-workers. The way I see it is, I'm there to work, not get involved in any sort of drama or arguments, and I've been successful in this endeavor at LongHorn thus far, but even still, it's a very hostile environment to work in. I understand that servers can be aggressive due to their dependency on the tips they make, but at LongHorn it seems as if a lot of them are constantly grumpy and miserable. Of course they don't ever act this way towards guests, for obvious reasons, but they aren't exactly pleasant towards us hostesses. I think the hardest part of this job is keeping track of all the tables, servers and large parties, as well as keeping track of the wait list and how it coincides with how fast the kitchen is producing food, all at once. Honestly, the most enjoyable part of the job is greeting guests and bringing them to their tables because everyone is happy when they get to eat great food, and LongHorn does infact have excellent food. Seeing the regular guests come in and getting to know them is also pretty awesome.
