Job Description for Assistant Kitchen Manager, Restaurant

Assistant kitchen workers are responsible for a variety of tasks related to food preparation and kitchen maintenance. Though kitchen workers may have many responsibilities, assistants are more likely to perform cleaning and maintenance tasks which don't pertain to actual food preparation, such as washing dishes, providing cooks with needed items, sanitizing work stations, rotating foodstuffs in refrigerators, preparing and polishing plates and cutlery, and keeping dispensers and shelves stocked. Assistants may also be responsible for food preparation under the supervision of a manager or head chef. These tasks may include cleaning and butchering meat, knowing a restaurant's menu and preparing its items, mixing ingredients in salad preparation, and correctly storing food. Assistant kitchen workers differ from their superiors in administrative work, as they are unlikely to be involved with administrative tasks such as taking stock or placing orders.

What is it like working as an Assistant Kitchen Manager, Restaurant?

Assistant Kitchen Manager, Restaurant in Quincy:
"The next step."
Pros: I have great insight from a long time of hands on experience in the restaurant industry. I have seen every angle from starting as a bus boy my first job, moving to dishwasher, to server, then to cook, then a manager and also helping out bar tending.
Cons: The lazy people in the business. The turn around rate in a restaurant is really fast so you have to hold onto the good ones you get because there is a lot of bad employees you will hire until you can find that one good one who stays with the company more than a year.
