Kitchen Manager in Eustis:
"Heads Up!"
I would tell you that if you can't handle a high stress situation this would not be the job for you. Keep your composure and set a good example for all employees. Listen to what your employees have to say and they're ideas. Tell them they do a good job when they do and to keep up the good work. If they do something wrong let them know in a professional level.

Kitchen Manager in San Diego:
"Poor behavior by the owner."
She believes that it is ok to force her employees to work through breaks and call them stupid and yell when they make mistakes. After 8 - 10 hours without a break, food or water, any one can make a mistake. Her idea of leadership is to berate and strike fear into her employees. She terrifies them and though she thinks this will reduce mistakes, it only causes employees to avoid any job that might have a possibility of a mistake. Keep track of all illegal offenses.

Kitchen Manager in United States:
"If I'd known then what I know now."
The advice I would give to a kitchen manager starting out, is to get a formal education at either a community college, or culinary arts school. Don't just rely on your talent as I did which is great ive purchased 2 homes have nice cars raised four kids all professionals now. But for you to advance in your senior years you really need a degree in the food service sector.
