Which is harder?fast food.. or waiting tables?

In your opinion, which do you think is harder? I have started to work in fast food( burger king).. and I don't like it. I have the choice to find a different job( being a hostess) in the same town.. but not sure if it would be "harder"?

What do you think? Reasons? Thanks:)

Being a hostess is easy (a snooze fest) and not challenging. Waitressing is totally different than either hostessing or fast food. It is very hard work but pays better. I started out at a fast food restaurant when young and there were times I did not like it but I suggest you stay and build a reference and get some experience. If you keep quiting something you do not like you will not get very far in life.
If a fast food place is too hard for you your in trouble. That is not a hard job. I don't mean to be harsh but it sounds like you need a wake up call.

Oh and PS.. She said that they only hire 18 and under for HOSTESS(sp?) so I wouldn't have to wait tables?

A hostess takes people to the table and seats them . A waitress takes their food order, get food, give drinks, refills the drinks, clean the table and it is non stop I will also tell you that I have had many jobs over the years and the people that you work with will always be an issue .

Nevermind. Churumbeque explained it.

The hostess job is by far the easier and most pleasant. Waitressing is a thankless job and it requires you to remember personal things about each table and stay on track. Fast food is busy, but you will sometimes get an assortment of jobs other than just working the cash register.

If the money is comparable, I would take the hostess job. Chances are, you won't go home smelling like a fry each night.

You would have to know the payout for the hostess job. Most restaurant severs tip out 3% of their sales. 1% ech to the bar, buss, and host stand. So depending on how busyy the sit down restaurant is you can do ok. If its just straight pay, you might not make as much as fast food, even if its a better hourly. The reason is most restaurants only staff a full host stand during peak busy times. You might only get a full 8 hours on Friday and Saturday night. You will probably have to do lunches working only a few hours till it they 'cut'. Sorry so long. If you have questions about serving I will try to answer.
