Restaurant Assistant Manager Jobs

If you have the requisite training and some experience in one or more aspects of restaurant work, you can become a RESTAURANT ASSISTANT MANAGER.

What are Working Conditions for Restaurant Assistant Managers?

Restaurant assistant managers typically work in establishments that are part of a chain. Since most restaurant workers are not unionized, hours of work and rates of pay are governed only by federal and state law and prevailing practice in the locality. Restaurant assistant managers normally work a forty-hour week, but their shifts are irregular.

  • If the volume of business warrants, there may also be an on-site manager.More typically,however, a restaurant assistant manager functions as the on-site manager, supervised by and reporting to the regional or general manager.
  • In a chain, the management team is responsible for creating marketing and promotional plans, allocating resources, reviewing standards, hiring and firing staff and reducing or eliminating inefficiencies. Besides overseeing all aspects of the restaurant’s day-to-day operations, the restaurant assistant manager belongs to the management team and contributes to its work.
