Job Description for Kitchen Manager, Restaurant

A kitchen manager is a back-of-house supervisor at a restaurant. Restaurants that offer a more casual fare and atmosphere are typical employers for kitchen managers (versus fine dining restaurants, which generally hire chefs). Kitchen managers are in charge of executing pre-existing recipes and preparations, as well as overseeing schedules, cleaning, and maintenance in accordance with the guidance of the restaurant’s owner or general manager. This is typically a salaried position; however, in smaller, independent operations, the kitchen manager may be an elevated hourly employee.

Kitchen Manager, Restaurant Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Kitchen Manager, Restaurant in Edisto Island:
"Rights."
Do not expect to get holidays, weekends or nights off. Your job is more than just 40 hours a week. Even when you are off, you will be doing something work related. Fielding phone calls, ordering food, or just planning in your mind the next day of business. Take the stress in stride and try to let your sense of humor carry you through.

What is it like working as a Kitchen Manager, Restaurant at McDonald's Corporation?

Kitchen Manager, Restaurant in Madison:
"McDonald's insight."
Pros: I like working for McDonald's cause of the fast-paced atmosphere and how everyone is like one big family. The pay is very nice for a kid my age who is also going to college full-time. Flexible scheduling, extremely nice front-office management and stock-options are my favorites.
Cons: The stress level for a job with this sort of pay just plain old sucks. Some nights I question why I even took my job. Customers can be very rude and being cussed at for other peoples mistakes isn't fun at all.
