Job Description for Restaurant Manager
A Restaurant Manager holds many responsibilities such as making sure the equipment in the restaurant is up to date, as well as the hiring and firing of employees.

They must make sure that the restaurant has met all of the safety codes, such as making sure that the restaurant is clean, the food is being handled properly, and the fire exits and procedures are clearly enforced. Most of all, restaurant managers generally have a high school education, but there are a few that have higher degrees in culinary arts.

They typically are supervisors to cashiers, front-line staff, cooks, greeters, and frequently their supervisor will be the general manager. The hours of a restaurant manager vary, depending on the hours of operation of the restaurant. However most restaurant managers are there before the restaurant opens, and they are there when the restaurant closes. They are in charge of making sure that all monies are accounted for.
