A food service supervisor works in a restaurant or hotel, ensuring that operations are performed efficiently and properly. Smaller restaurants that do not have the budget for a salaried manager at all hours of operation - or larger restaurants or hotels that want more supervision than their management staff can reasonably provide - are the typical employers of food service supervisors. Generally, this employee has supervisory responsibilities in addition to a regular role such as serving, bartending, or working as an expeditor in the kitchen.
