When customers enter a restaurant, the first subconscious impression they have is almost always determined by the personalized greeting of an individual welcoming them to their seats. The way they speak, the way they smile, the way they direct their body language all speak a ton in representing the image of a restaurant. This is the role of a hostess cashier.
A hostess cashier is primarily responsible for welcoming a customer. This entails greeting them at arrival, taking their reservations, showing them to a waiting area or their seats, presenting them with the food menu, and performing point of sale (POS) transactions. Besides that, they also help in attending phone calls, answering queries, and assisting with customer complaints.
Employers require hostess cashiers to have a high school diploma or equivalent. This is an entry-level role suitable for those who have a passion for customer service in the hospitality and entertainment industry. The salary earned is, on average, $8 per hour.
