Assistant Bar Manager

The service industry can be a rewarding sector especially for those of us who are outgoing. The role of the Assistant Bar Manager is a dynamic one and it comes with a lot of responsibilities. Your main job will be to support the Bar Manager to ensure that shifts run smoothly and that employees understand their roles when it comes to service at the bar. As an Assistant Bar Manager, you should take the time to familiarize yourself with the duties of the Bar Manager and Bartender, to get a better understanding of what will be required of you. You will be expected to help resolve employee issues including scheduling rosters. In most cases, when a worker does not show up, if you cannot find a replacement you will be expected to fill in for that person. Besides bar duties, you may also have some administrative duties to fulfill. The job can be exciting if you find the right team and atmosphere. There is also the opportunity to move up the chain if you do the job well and earn the respect of both your employers and co-workers. It's always a plus to be physically fit to handle your duties as you will be on your feet for much of your job. The wage is attractive but a negative issue is getting the hours needed to make up a proper salary. You can expect to work weekends on most occasions and a typical work week can be anywhere between 20 to 48 hours a week. It is possible to find more steady hours if you can find employment with a hotel or restaurant that has set opening and closing hours.
