"Assistant Managing is just like General Managing."
Pros: I love my staff and how everyone works together as a team. Teamwork is crucial in the restaurant and I push my staff to work better as a team each day. As with any workplace, especially a restaurant, cleanliness is important. We work each day to keep the restaurant looking like we would want our home to look.
