Pros: free lunch, everyday is different, no late nights, benefits
Cons: short break/no break, life work balance, lots of paperwork
Typical work day at Rubio's starts off with greeting everyone that is working, I like to keep it a family environment and I feel that by saying Good Morning to everyone makes everyone feel welcome. I like to then check over the numbers for the previous day making sure that we are in line to make food cost. Once I have completed that I check my email to see if any changes or updates are happening. Once I have completed that I will be on the floor starting with a team meeting setting the goals and cleaning tasks for the day also making sure we are set up for lunch rush, finishing up any last minute tasks, making sure my team are getting a chance to take their break. The lunch rush usually lasts about 3 hours and during that time I am cycling the restaurant that consists of table touching, cycling the kitchen ensuring that the team are following the proper safety and sanitation procedures, tasting food making sure that all food is being maintained to the proper temperatures. Once the lunch rush is over it is time to get things cleaned up and restock what ever needs to be restocked. Managers work 10.5 hours a day it is important to plan your day so that everything that you need to get done is able to get done before you leave for the day. I do not manage from the office I enjoy being on the floor working with my team and talking to the guests that come in everyday that is the most enjoyable part of the job.
