The casino has an employee dining room where they serve 24/7 so food costs for your lunch, dinner, and breakfast are nothing. You get dental, medical, and vision benefits with full time. But that's just the technical stuff. As far as the buffet Hostess/Cashier. If you're a cashier for a day you go grab your bank, count it out to verify that the amount is correct. Then bring it back to the buffet to your till that you're in charge of. There you will be taking care of the guests transactions, cash, points, coupons, credit cards, and other internal transaction types. There we have regular guests, and they love to be acknowledged as regulars, remembering what there name is or where they like to sit is something that is good to memorize. The seating as a hostess, you're main goal is to try to give every server and rotate so they have the same amount of guests. There are some days where that is impossible because everyone wants a window seat. So you do the best you can and try to accommodate the guests. Management within the buffet is great and co-workers are great, however communication between other departments can be slow, for example the coupons, when we get new ones, sometimes we don't get any information on them until its too late and we get the exception notice. With that being the hardest part the rest is easy for those who can memorize things easily. My favorite part is the warmness of our regulars. When they come back in and you're able to make them smile it's a good feeling. The routines are easy once you've gotten them down.
No ladder to climb, you either switch to another position or you're stuck where you are.
