*A percentile wage shows the percentage of workers in an occupation that earn less than a given wage and the percentage that earn more. The median wage is the 50th percentile wage estimate - 50 percent of workers earn less than the median and 50 percent of workers earn more than the median.
Hosts and hostesses in restaurants, lounges, and coffee shops welcome patrons, seat them at tables or in lounges, and help ensure quality of facilities and service.
