"fashion and media-based" does not equal "soulful." sorry.

I wonder if "steady work history" applies to those who have been unemployed recently. Does anyone know the salary?

@Goggla - It's probably shift pay + tips. A friend of mine worked at the Sunset Standard years ago and did alright. It wasn't her dream job, but she served enough big tipping celebs to make it tolerable.

I'm guessing they aren't going too hardcore about gaps. What does matter is that you have some fairly recent experience, preferably at a high-volume, trendy place, and how you look. Honestly, if you're really cute, restaurant/bar experience might not even matter.
