4. Restaurant Greeter

The nitty-gritty: If you love to meet and greet and can cope with chaos, here's your chance. Think hungry diners crowding the entrance, tapping their toes to check in and be escorted to their tables. It's a people-intensive and high-energy post. You'll need all your powers to smooth the ruffled feathers of those kept waiting. You're in charge of creating the first impression for guests and have the power to influence the overall restaurant experience by how you deal with diners. If you're a fan of the food being served and know your way around a menu, you have a leg up.
The hours: Lunch and dinner shifts, generally no more than five hours.
Median pay: The pay scale is $8.25 to $15 an hour, but varies widely by size and popularity of the establishment.
Qualifications: People and organizational skills are pre-requisites. Some phone work. Prior time spent at a restaurant is valued. Warmth and a welcoming smile will serve you well. Your mantra: "Follow me. Your table is ready."

If you're organized and can lift heavy boxes, this job might fit.>>
