Large high volume beachfront establishment
General Manager (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – August 6, 2018
Typical day at work involved staffing needs for the day at hand. Working in close relation with vendors to ensure quality product at cost efficient prices. Guest relations constantly ongoing in order to establish repeat business.
Learned profit and loss spreadsheets, forecasting delegation of duties to lower management.
Management always held open door policy for all employees to ensure that staff always had an outlet to explain any issues regarding their work. This made for an extremely positive atmosphere and culture throughout.
Hardest part of the job was dealing with an individual owner who did not have much flexibility in taking others ideas or opinions seriously.
Most enjoyable part of the job was working with great people alongside me, as well as those under me. Guest relations.
Free meals, home was very close to work, meeting people from all avenues of life
No health insurance or retirement, one individual owner, constraints on creativity and ideas
