Very fast paced. Especially during dinnertime and on weekends. The people there were nice. No breaks, which is a downside.

Depends. On a busy night, depending on if you're alone or with another host, maybe like $16-$18 each. If it's slow, $8.

Very busy from start to finish, no breaks, and one manager was a total jerk. The time your shift was told would to be over, is often a lie because you leave later if you do closing.

I stopped getting normal hours and they didn't want to help me or anyone else out. if you needed a different shift they just stopped giving them to all together. and even though there were only 9 of us and not enough shifts they hired many more people. they were planning on "cleaning the house" which was total bs. they would try to make YOU quit so they wouldnt have to pay unemployment. well it worked for the most part haha
