If you work in the restaurant business, please answer...?

I am going for my 2nd interview tonight for a restaurant manager. This is the 2nd of 3 interviews that I will have before I know if I have the job or not. The first one was with HR/Recruting, and this one is with a Regional manager. If you work or have ever worked in the restaurant business, please answer the following: Why was the best manager you had the best? Why was the worst manager you had the worst? What key things do you look for in order to respect your manager? Any other things you may want to add will be helpful as well. I want my interview tonight to go as well as possible and I think your suggestions and answers will really help me and get me one step ahead of the game. Thanks so much! P.S. I have 7 years of resturant experience and 1 1/2 yrs. exp. as a rest. mgr, but it was YEARS ago. I am looking to refresh my memory and gain insight from others.

The best manager was considerate of our feelings, he never reprimanded us in front of co-workers, encourage us to attend our children's school functions, but asked we give him time to assign someone to our post, he never did the my way or the highway crap. In other words he treated us well, and in return we did our... More

If you are looking for a job it shouldn't matter who my best or worst manager was. What counts is how You appear to the person giving the interview. If you are applying for a cook's position, don't show up in a suit. Dress according to the position open. Next, be honest in the hours you are available. If you can'... More
