Restaurant Supervisor Jobs

If you have several years of on-the-job experience in one or more aspects of restaurant work, you can aspire to become a RESTAURANT SUPERVISOR.

What are Working Conditions for Restaurant Supervisors?

Restaurant supervisors typically work in a restaurant that is part of a chain, although some work for large owner-operated establishments. Most restaurant workers are not unionized, so hours of work and rates of pay are governed only by federal and state law and prevailing practice in the locality.

  • Supervision is required in any restaurant. In a small, family-owned establishment, the owner usually acts as supervisor. Large privately-owned establishments, restaurant chains, and restaurants in hotels, resorts and large institutions all employ a restaurant supervisor or restaurant assistant manager for this purpose.
  • In a large privately-owned establishment, the restaurant supervisor may report to an on-site restaurant manager or directly to the owner.
  • In a chain, the supervisor will report to an on-site assistant manager or manager, if there is one, or if not, to an off-site 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. The restaurant supervisor is responsible for ensuring that the policies, plans and procedures of the chain are being correctly implemented.
