A restaurant manager is a person employed in the foodservice industry to manage one or more restaurants. Typical management duties include supervising members of the front and back of house staff, assigning work schedules, maximizing profits by controlling expenses and hiring new staff, enacting health and safety regulations. Some larger chains offer regional managers for their restaurants who report to a national or regional manager.
Hiring the right talent is a meticulous process—companies seek out candidates who fit their work ethics, and the new person needs to be on board with the company values. With each new hire, companies are left wondering whether or not they made the right decision. The most effective way for businesses to answer this question is by conducting interviews that are carefully planned.
