Restaurant Manager Reviews

What is it like working as a Restaurant Manager?

Restaurant Manager in Boston:
"My Life change."
Pros: The customers are the reason I've stayed as long as I have. I love going into work knowing I've made a customer's expErience excellent And know they will return again and know me by a first name basis.
Cons: The owner who is also my boss has not paid me for the management duties I do daily. He constantly screams and belittles me in front of customers to the point I''ve now changed as a person.

Restaurant Manager in Manteca:

Restaurant Manager in Atlanta:
"Restaurant Management."
Pros: I like being able to provide good food and service through training my employees. Customer service is my passion. I work with a very talented staff and I have an awesome boss. I have learned a lot about Japanese cuisine and culture here. Our regular customers are also very kind people and I love it when they walk through the door.
Cons: I don't like how some of the employees are too comfortable and don't strive to improve on the level of service to make our company shine. Being overworked and underpaid drains on my social life. Especially at my age I need to start settling down. The office could use some organization as well.
