What this job is about

Going from Team Member to Restaurant Supervisor is a lot like going from a medium morning coffee to an extra large: It takes commitment and guts. But if you have what it takes, you could be taking over the day-to-day supervision of Team Members in the Restaurant, helping to build what is known industry-wide as one of the best Guest Service experiences.From ensuring that all food handling is being kept up to strict standards and assisting the Restaurant manager in administrative tasks, the Restaurant Supervisor takes major pride in his/her job. It takes strong leadership skills, since you'll be called to recruit, train and manage Team Members. You'll also pitch in where needed, which can mean pouring coffee or taking care of managerial duties.Never the same day twice, the Restaurant Supervisor is an integral part of the team and one of the main leaders for any location.
