A pizza store general manager is responsible for the daily operations of a pizza store. Often, applicants will need to have experience managing a small business. They usually manage cooks, cashiers, and delivery drivers.
They need to have customer service skills. They also need to be able to be versatile and to multitask, as responsibilities can vary from operating the cash register to cooking pizzas or making deliveries. The position also often requires experience with profits and losses. Other responsibilities include managing the restaurant's day to day operations, including ordering supplies, scheduling, and working alongside employees. They will also be responsible for the hiring and training of new employees, as well as terminating employees who do not meet expectations. They are often also responsible for the marketing of the restaurant and the designing of promotions to gain traction in the local community.
Hours worked will usually include afternoons and evenings, with some possibility for late nights. The job will be performed indoors, unless they are needed to make deliveries. They will typically work a 40-hour workweek, but they may exceed that during times of high activity. Many employers require these managers to have a bachelor’s degree in business management or a related field.
