Restaurant Jobs

Restaurant Job Overview


Restaurant careers are varied, and they can include anything from serving as the establishment's business manager to working in the kitchen as an executive chef. Restaurant jobs might involve tasks like dealing with customers and patrons as they enter the restaurant, taking orders, ordering supplies and ingredients, planning menus and sticking to a budget for the business. Restaurant careers can often include long shifts as well as weekend work, but they are considered to be the ideal form of employment for anyone with a love for the culinary arts.

Restaurant Job Education Requirements


There are no mandatory educational prerequisites in place for restaurant employees. However, many restaurants choose to hire individuals with at least some experience or formal training in the industry. To work as a restaurant manager, for example, having a bachelor's degree in hospitality or restaurant management is recommended. Chefs who plan to work in high-end restaurants typically need to have some kind of culinary arts training or an internship under a respected chef in the industry.

Restaurant Job Market


Statistics predict that for chefs as well as other restaurant employees, job growth will continue to rise. By 2022, there may be up to 15 percent more jobs in restaurants, largely due to the increased number of people eating outside of the home. Other hospitality careers that will see industry growth include positions like Banqueting Managers, Night Auditors and Amusement and Recreation Attendants.

Restaurant Job Salaries


The average salary for a restaurant employee varies substantially depending on what kind of position they hold as well as where they work. Restaurant Managers tend to earn median salaries of $47,960 per year. Chefs earn slightly less on average. Restaurant Hosts and Waiting Staff earn even less. However, it is important to note that many restaurant employees work at least in part for tips, which can influence the total salary they take home at the end of each shift in a restaurant.
