An assistant general manager performs administrative duties and helps the general manager with overall coordination. Their duties are to oversee much of a business’s day-to-day operations and report directly to the general manager. They may draft schedules, deal with disciplinary issues, monitor shifts, and liaise with human resources as necessary. They are also part of the hiring process and train new employees. The career requires particular skills and qualifications, such as strong leadership qualities, verbal communication, an eye for detail, and the ability to handle multiple tasks at once. Work experience is one of the only qualifications for this career.
