A hotel assistant general manager manages many different aspects of the hotel's day-to-day operations. For example, they oversee the housekeeping of the hotel, the duties of the front office, and the stocking of vending and beverage machines. Assistant general managers work mostly full-time in the hotel environment, around 40 hours a week during business hours, under the oversight of a hotel general manager.
Hotel assistant general manager positions typically require a minimum of three years of management and supervisory experience. Management in the service, food and beverage, or hotel industry strongly preferred. A college degree is often also preferred. Applicants must have a knowledge of the Microsoft suite of programs, and have excellent oral and written communications skills. They must also be organized, able to multitask, detail oriented, and able to work with minimal supervision. Being bilingual is an advantageous skill as well.
