Restaurant Manager Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Restaurant Manager?

Restaurant Manager in Naples:
"Rewarding."
Pros: Opportunities for advancement based on merits, not tenure.
Cons:

Restaurant Manager in Stuart:
"Plenty Of Responsibility And A Willingness To Do More."
You must have a will to always do more and not necessarily be recognized for all of your efforts, while praising, training, assisting others without complaint. To excel one must go above and beyond to prove their worth and build a good team.

Restaurant Manager in Manteca:
Pros: Working with people. Supplying them with what they want and seeing them satisfied. Working in a non-stop atmosphere.
Cons: Dealing with employees who have a hard time listening.

Restaurant Manager in Mobile:
"Stress Involved."
Have a good team. Create loyalty and dedication and do not let people use you. Do not become the 7 day 24 hour on call person. This creates extreme stress in a non-stressful job. It is very rewarding to know you can make someones day with so little effort, if you love what you do. You eat with your eyes first and it is your job to create works of art.

Restaurant Manager in Mobile:
"Stress."
Pros: The customers, staff like family.
Cons: On call 24/7, even on vacation!

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.

Restaurant Manager in New York:
"The Late Hours."
Find an employer and a boss that you really believe in and who believes in you.
