Kitchen Supervisor Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Kitchen Supervisor?

Kitchen Supervisor in San Diego:
"I surprise myself of my own ability to manage a kitchen."
Pros: I like the fact that I come across something new to learn or something interesting to research or study. Ive learned allot about people, personalities, and the performance based on those personalities. Being able to teach some one how to cook and why certain procedures is priceless.
Cons: I hate the fact that I have worked hard but yet quickly but the bosses don't match my pay with what I do. I can't set a pase for employees to work comfortably if the chef has favoritism and nepotism.

Kitchen Supervisor in Tucson:
"Perks."
Pros: I like being around the kids & school atmosphere. Not having an upper management in my kitchen. Mostly corresponding by email with the GM.
Cons: Cutting labor hrs when we need that time to prepare. Means more added work, always rushing to get everything done. The pay rate is too low & they don't acknowledge seniority. Also, favoritism goes on.
