Pros: free lunches
Cons: no full time opportunities
A typical day at work would be making sure there was enough coffee, seating guests, serving drinks and refills, printing out and giving the guests their bills, settling the bills, then clearing and cleaning the tables, and end of shift cleaning in the host area. On Sunday, this would include set up and take down of the buffet.
Besides learning things like how to refill the fountain drink machine and juice machines, I learned how to use the cash register and what type of glass to use for which type of wine. I improved time management skills.
My managers and coworkers were lovely and helpful, especially during the first bit while I was learning on the job. Everyone is very approachable and generally nice.
The hardest part of the job was that sometimes, at the end of the shift, it was difficult to get the end of shift cleaning done in between the customers coming in. The most enjoyable part of the job was all of the wonderful people that I got to meet, both the customers and the staff.
