Job Description for Fast Food Manager
Fast food managers oversee the day-to-day operations of a fast food location. At various times during a typical workday, they supervise food preparation, customer service interactions, and any personnel issues. Additionally, they are also responsible for planning, scheduling, and ordering food products and other needed supplies. Because of the consistency of menu and this industry’s ability to track customer traffic data, much of the ordering, hiring, and scheduling decision-making for a fast food manager can be streamlined and automated; however, the manager still conducts needed oversight and analysis. Fast food managers also must seek and interview new applicants to fill positions that frequently experience high job turnover. The manager must also have strong working knowledge of the tasks in his or her store to help ensure efficiency and execution.
