    Very little managing, mostly working in position all day prepping food. Must enjoy the kitchen life. Very little guest interaction except for moving them thru the line as quick as possible.

    Be upfront on the day in a life of a GM when hiring. Promote from within with employees that understand the daily work life and have been living up to the challenges.
