Hire Assistant Managers

Assistant managers relieves the general manager of important duties and functions, which can allow for the general manager to focus on areas of improving profitability. No matter how aesthetically appealing your restaurant looks on the outside to customers, profitability and growth will suffer if internal operations are disorganized.  Hiring an assistant manager ensures that all activities within your restaurant run efficiently and smoothly. Here are some benefits of hiring an assistant manager for your restaurant: 

  • An assistant manager serves as the focal point that connects your restaurant with its staff and also food supply chains.
  • They see to it that general needs and monitoring of equipment used are met. 
  • They support the general restaurant manager, relieving him or her of some key duties.
  • They record the revenue and expenses of the restaurant, making sure that all registers are balanced.

It is a strain on the general manager to oversee the whole restaurant’s affairs alone. Although many restaurants would benefit from having an assistant manager, it’s challenging to find people who can be trained in both the culture and day to day running of the restaurant. For reference, an assistant manager's salary is about $13 per hour which averages $41,577 per year. 

How to effectively hire an assistant manager for your restaurant 

Knowing how, when, and who to hire as an assistant manager is as important as anything else for the growth of your restaurant. Summer and holiday seasons are good times to hire an assistant manager to ease the stress around the restaurant. 

Generally, managers within restaurants fall into four groups; general, bar, back of the house, and front of the house managers. The last three groups report to the general manager who oversees the restaurant in its entirety. Depending on the size of your restaurant:

  • Determine which of the managers is key to filling a particular opening.
  • Identify the role, experience, and skills needed for your management team.

This will help identify suitable assistant manager candidates for your restaurant or establishment.

List the description and requirements for the position in your job posting 

If you can create and list an accurate description of what your establishment needs, then you will stand out among competitors and find the perfect fit. Consider including a value-based description of your restaurant that describes your company’s culture, values, and legacy. Specificity will help attract the right applicants, saving you the time and stress interviewing potential assistant managers. 

Typical requirements and qualities needed to hire an assistant manager 

Lastly, here are some qualities to look for when hiring an assistant manager: 

  • Goal-oriented, responsible, organized, and excellent time management skills
  • Great verbal communication skills and the ability to relay information effectively
  • Possession of excellent customer service relationships and interpersonal skills
  • Availability to work within the scheduled business hours of your restaurant. Working hours could range from mornings, evenings, weekends to holidays
