Learn as much as you can about the job you are interviewing for....how many meals do they serve, what type of service, how are they organized? Do they have a union? How are they doing financially? If you can not find the information be prepared to ask them when they allow questions. Take notes and make sure your note pad is in a nice looking business folder.
Be ready to give them ideas on how you would improve their business. Give examples of how you improved at your present and past jobs. Have facts and figures ready....ie "I increased production by 5% which led to a savings of $.
Look sharp....DRESS properly.
Tell them all your good points and how your training, whether school or experience, will be of a help to their business.
Be ready to answer questions about your style of discipline.
How do you handle difficult employees.

Be ready to explain how you would organize their kitchen...have a timeline. "for the first month I would observe and change only what was against regulations or foolishly too expensive" Next I would.........
Let them know you have given this job some thought!
