PURPOSE: The restaurant hostess is the first employee to interact with arriving guests as they enter the restaurant. It is the job of the hostess to greet arriving guests, welcome them into the establishment and seat them. The guests receive their first impression of the service of Glory Days Grill by their exchange with the host. As guests arrive, the host assesses the dining room and, if an accommodating table is available, escorts the guests to the dining room. Upon returning to the station, hostesses also make any necessary changes to the dining room seating chart. ESSENTIAL JOB FUNCTIONS: Hosts must be 16 or older and meet the local requirements for working in a food service establishment that serves alcohol. A certain amount of preparation and maintenance will also be required. Management will inform employees of these duties during the training period. RELATIONSHIPS: The hostess is a personal representation of the service and overall hospitality of the staff of the restaurant. While guests are waiting to be seated or waiting for take-out orders to be ready, it is the job of the hostess to ensure that the guests are made comfortable and kept informed of the status of their orders or wait times. Hosts should be comfortable and at ease with Guests in an efficient, friendly and polite manner. The quality of service is very much a part of the atmosphere and experience of Glory Days Grill.
