I am thinking about obtaining my PhD in business. Im not sure what I should specialize in, what specializations for business are in demand? Also how hard is it to find a job upon graduation? I do have experience in the business would, I am currently a restaurant general manager.
I was recently promoted to a "Restaurant General Manager" (store manager) for Taco Bell. At the beginning of the year all of the "RGM"s in our metro region (about 60 stores) attended a meeting. I noticed I was in the minority. There were about 8 men out of 60 RGM's.
Why is this the case? Is it a negative social stigma stating: fast food isn't a "MAN"s job. Is it that women are better multi-taskers, making them more competent than men in the restaurant environment?
Our general manager at our restaurant was caught stealing from the nightly tipshare and was fired earlier this week, there is evidence that he has been doing this for awhile. It's hard to say how much was stolen exactly, but for this month, it's guessed around $150 was stolen from me alone.
The corporate supervisor has ruled that the employees will not receive any compensation for the amount stolen from us, claiming that the company is not liable for the actions of the general manager. Do I have a legal case against the company? What should I do? Anybody?
I think someone is lying to me about their potential salary when they start their job. I was just curious about this. I believe they will be the general manager or something. This person has no experience in the restaurant industry.
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.
I'm a South African I've run some of the coolest and most trendy restaurants and pubs in Johannesburg with covers exceeding 200 but I seem to be at a mile stone not knowing what to do next and with so much going on how do I focus in on something specific that will enable me to explore my own dream which is to finance and run something that is truly unique. I've just resigned from my job here in the UK which was general manager of a new concept restaurant which is now doing very well. I now want more knowledge. I'm 27 at the moment but have been in hospitality since I was 17. Please Help!
I currently work at a restaurant owned by Brinker and for several years have never even heard the words drug test uttered. However, today, when I walked into work, there was a flyer on the bulletin board where our ATLs and important events go. It was about a drug test company and gave a brief summary about it and "coming soon" was written to it by big letters. I thought it was a joke but was then told by my general manager that it was happening on the 26th. I still thought it was a joke, but it was verified by two other managers and a few other employees. Can they do this? The only paper work I signed that allowed them to drug test me was for if I were to hurt myself on the job. Nothing else.
I only am worried about this because I have been "self-medicating" for about a year. I used to spend $87 a month on prescription medications to help with insomnia and anxiety. I now maybe spend $20 a month to help with that.
I had an interview for a server position at a corporate restaurant last Thursday. The interview went VERY well. At the end of the interview the managers exact words were "I just have to get the General Manager to approve this. Expect a call from us very soon" Now its Monday evening and I haven't had a call back yet. Should I call tomorrow, wait a bit longer, or write it off as I didn't get the job and keep looking?
I have had two interviews with this restaurant (they always have three total) I was told the general manager would call and set up the last one. It's been three days, should I keep waiting or call? And then what should I say on the phone? I feel like I'm being rude calling, but I really want this job!
BTW Last time I was told I would get a call, I didn't, and had to call them for my second interview. They seemed really interested, just busy.
I was the General Manager of a restaurant and was demoted to Assistant General Manager. I was being paid $60,000 ayear as a GM and when I was demoted, my boss told me that he was not going to pay me that salary to be an AGM. He told me that I would receive a $10,000 a year pay cut. Is this legal?
I've been working in the food service industry since I was 18, from dishwaser all the way to general manager, and now I feel like its time to get out. I have a business degree, but feel like I've never used it to my advantage. I'm looking to move in to the "corporate world, " but have no idea what positions my skills (people management, customer service, multitasking, etc.) would be useful for.
I am not asking for myself, I am looking for advice to give to my significant other.
He is a General Manager for a restaurant and he is having a hard time getting his management staff to catch on so to say.
They are hard workers, but are not performing up to par. He has tried teaching them and he has tried to get them to learn from their own mistakes.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get their management team to perform better? I have looked this up on the internet but keep getting motivation stuff and that is not the problem.
BTW. Unfortunately, he doesn't pick the management team, the owner does.

I am employed as a director of marketing for a couple of restaurants and bars. For the past year I have also been acting as the General Manager for one of the locations that happens to be a nightclub. On occaison I am required to cook for banquets, bartend and sometimes even serve tables. Someone told me that I should be compensated for those duties in addition to my salary. Can anyone help?
I've worked at cracker barrel since I was 16, I'm now 22 and have a bachelors in business management. A year ago I was promoted into management. Next year I will actually be a general manager.
How is my retirement most likely going to be determined (cracker barrel, though a restaurant chain, does give employees decent retirement, esp. in management).
Will my six years count or will it start over because I'm being promoted?
Restaurant Floor Manager - What is the difference from assistant manager?
Is "Restaurant floor manager" title properly used in resume. What's below General Manager and above manager in restaurant job hierarchy.Thanks a lot
I want to stay in food service but I don't want to work really late at night, on weekends and holidays, and a 40 hour work week would be great. What else can I do with my experience being solely in the restaurant business?
I work for a large restaurant chain. We got a new manager who is not someone most people would want to work with. I am a host here and he is believed to have it out for me. He is not the general manager but he can hire and fire. I want to go to the general manager about this situation especially now because he has not put me on the schedule this week. I also want to possibly go to corporate about this. He harasses us terribly at our jobs and I have never been late and never gotten written up. I do not know what to do about this. I am in college this is only part time and I don't "need" this job and I think that has something to do with it. This is believe is personal from him. Please just provide me with your honest advice on what to do to move forward. Thanks!
Hi, i was interviewed a week and a half ago for a server or host position for a restaurant opening next month. They said they would call by the end of that week but i have not heard anything from them. I was wondering if i did not get the job or if new restaurants take a while to make hiring decisions. Also do they hire general managers before they hire wait staff? Thank you guys so much.
