How do I convince my manager to promote me to the assistant manager position of the restaurant I work at?
I currently work at a corporation run restaurant. I started in the kitchen and within 8 months have learned things that people there years have never learned. I'm the hardest worker and I'll be graduating college in under a year. The assistant general manager and the regional supervisor ABOVE the general manager of the restaurant are both on board with me becoming an assistant manager. However, the general manager of this restaurant is taking his time and is trying to make things seem fair because I've advanced so quickly; even though I deserve it. I've contemplated designing a written paper to my general manager voicing all of the opinions and facts that are surrounding every reason why I should be getting this promotion. Does anyone have any ideas for me? The restaurant is Vinny T's of Boston, if that helps anyone.

Only thing I can say is keep bugging him about it. Continue doing a good job, and start asking about what exactly the managers do.

I suggest you ask for a meeting. Be pleasant in asking what your growth opportunities are in the restaurant. Discuss also your plans in case you are appointed to the assistant manager position. I hope this helps. Peace and blessings!
