Hey so I just became a hostess for my first job and I was wondering if you had any advice as to how to get on people's good side and make friends? I've made a few but I'm still trying to make friends with the rest of the servers and kitchen staff. Thanks!

Try to help out when you can, as long as you don’t get in anyone’s way. Roll silverware, bus tables, help the dishwasher, run food or water for the servers (or at least ask them first if they would like you to run something for them), ask the managers if there’s anything you can do when it gets slow and there’s nothing else to do. Just be personable and as friendly as possible. Most of all: DO YOUR JOB AND DO IT WELL. It’s hard to befriend someone who can’t do their job correctly. Make sure you’re the best host to ever take the wheel at your restaurant, and you’ll be just fine. Go above and beyond your position.

  • Me: [via text message:] Hey (hosts), can someone please cover for me this morning? I'm throwing up on the side of the road. I'll buy lunch for whoever covers for me.
