Behavior That Can Cost Managers Their Jobs

This post was originally written by FohBoh member Robert Krzak. You can visit his profile here.

One of the most frustrating aspects of working in any corporation is being stepped over for a promotion. Another example would be the manager who solves problems, reduces turn over, increases revenue, brings the restaurant out of the dark ages, and then is fired despite their efforts.

1. A Poor Behavior…

How The Interviewer Tests Your Behavior and Personality

This post was originally written by FohBoh member Robert Krzak. You can visit his profile here.

Many Job Seekers are surprised to find that a job interview is similar to being profiled. The interviewer may be less interested in your experience, and more interested in your behavior, and what your personality type is. They may overlook areas where your education and experience are lacking.

This post was originally written by FohBoh member Robert Krzak. You can visit his profile here.

There is more to these questions than just wanting to know if a Candidate is skilled enough to hold a job at a particular restaurant. Think of a job interview as if it were a game of chess.

Interviewing Secrets: Strong vs. Weak Management Candidates

This post was originally written by FohBoh member Robert Krzak. You can visit his profile here.

Weak candidates may have difficulty articulating their experiences and what they learned. Weaker candidates are satisfied with their ability to make it through the day without inciting chaos. A strong candidate will analize the situation and can give examples of how they used their new found skills.

Leadership is Like Ice Cream

The words “leader” and “leadership” used to be widely accepted definitions of person(s) at the very top. Now, they have been widely broadened to reflectively include those who contribute to the process of moving things forward at any level, in any business setting.

I like to think of it this way, leadership is like ice cream, and the specific business, industry or circumstances are the flavors. It is impossible to use chocolate chip and make it work when pistachio swirl is required,…

Just "Because": The Beatles Lessons in Customer Service

I believe that everyone should work as a waiter at one point in their life.

Not because the money is pretty darn good or because you get one shift drink that can turn into two or three if you are good chums with the bartender. Rather, they should become a waiter to learn the true value of great customer service and its rewards.

It worked for me and I can say, with no…

Improve Your “Smiles Per Hour”!









Those of us who have been in the service business have heard it all:



“It takes less facial muscles to smile than it does to frown”



“If you see someone who isn’t smiling give them yours”



“A smile is just a frown turned upside down”



“Fake it til you make it”



Yadda, Yadda, Yadda…

If I Were a Manager...

I was inspired by Bill Campion's post, so decided it was time to chime in.

I would make sure the back dock looked just as clean and organized as the front door. Delivery drivers should get the same courtesy as our guests.

Transparency

How much do your employees really know about the state of your business?



I recently read a comment on one of those online restaurant review sites, posted by a customer who obviously had never run a restaurant. He had a couple of negative things to say about the place, but one which struck me was his complaint that one of the imported beers on offer was being sold for 30% more than at the grocery store down the street! He had half a mind to go and buy his beer there!
