Restaurant Assistant Manager in Branford:
"It's hard work, but rewarding."
You run all day, then have to clean up at night. You get more complaints then compliments. And you deal with some staff that are just not ready to put in the effort. But, if you creat the right team, it can be fun and rewarding.

Restaurant Assistant Manager in Atlanta:
"All the stress for $16 an hour average."
Pros: I enjoy talking to people and the benefits. It is nice to be able to wear your hair how you like and choose your own clothes. A consistent paycheck is nice and 401k. Some of the people who work for you are nice and you can make a positive impact in their life.
Cons: It is hard to see servers work 40 hours a week and make as much money as you. You have little appreciation from upper management, long hours, inflexible schedule, constant paperwork. It is very similar to babysitting. You can counsel employees about the same things over and over again. You can write them up and short of firing them, little changes. People think everything is an emergency and 6 people will run up and say things they need from you all at the same time. It will leave you feeling overwhelmed. Guests will not understand when it is a holiday and they have to wait for a table, when they have a reservation.
