Job Description for Assistant Kitchen Manager, Restaurant

Assistant kitchen workers are responsible for a variety of tasks related to food preparation and kitchen maintenance. Though kitchen workers may have many responsibilities, assistants are more likely to perform cleaning and maintenance tasks which don't pertain to actual food preparation, such as washing dishes, providing cooks with needed items, sanitizing work stations, rotating foodstuffs in refrigerators, preparing and polishing plates and cutlery, and keeping dispensers and shelves stocked. Assistants may also be responsible for food preparation under the supervision of a manager or head chef. These tasks may include cleaning and butchering meat, knowing a restaurant's menu and preparing its items, mixing ingredients in salad preparation, and correctly storing food. Assistant kitchen workers differ from their superiors in administrative work, as they are unlikely to be involved with administrative tasks such as taking stock or placing orders.
