Attendance & PromptnessAs a leader in the company, it is the goal and expectation that managers assume the responsibility of the overall performance of their location – at all times, on all days. 
  • Managers are expected to work their assigned 5-day work schedule and any additional time related to the planning or operation of the business (scheduling, training, meetings, etc.). 
  • A manager must be on-site whenever the restaurant is open for business or whenever guests may be present. 
  • When only one manager is scheduled, the manager is expected to be on-site from 7 AM – close.  
  • When two managers are present, one manager may either come in early and/or leave early as long as one manager is on-site throughout the day.  These are not meant to be half-days, but 8-hour workdays instead of 9-10 hours. Special concessions must be approved by a superior. 
  • Managers must arrive on time and be held to the same standard as all employees: 5+ minutes is considered tardy. Perpetual tardiness will result in disciplinary action.
  • Salaried managers will be expected to work a minimum of 40+ hours a week. Some weeks may require more, depending on circumstances.  
CommunicationWhen acting in the capacity as a manager of The Original Pancake House, all communication directly reflects the company, its owners, and its employees.

Scheduling & Time Off
  • Managers are required to request time off when needed and should be done as soon as possible. If a request-off is not provided promptly and concessions cannot be made, the manager will be expected to work the shift(s) in question. 
  • Managers are expected to receive approval for time off before making travel arrangements, booking tickets, making purchases, etc. 
  • Managers are expected to work weekends as part of their job description. 
  • A manager may not exchange a weekday off for an additional weekend day. If a weekend is needed off, the manager will be required to use vacation days to receive the time off.
  • When applicable, the General Manager, or Assistant Manager, is never permitted to have the same weekend, or weekend day, off.  In stores designated to have two managers off-the-floor on normal operating weekends, typically, a ‘substitute’ manager will be asked to step in to fill the role. In contrast, the permanent manager is sick or on vacation. Similarly, on weekdays when a typically scheduled manager is unavailable, a ‘substitute’ manager will be asked to step in and fill the role.
  • Managers are required to provide adequate coverage at all times. This includes possessing enough staffing to cover shifts in the event of a sick employee. Managers are expected to be “off the floor” and should not be serving tables. In the event of an emergency, a manager must receive approval before taking a section. If the manager receives this approval, any tips made will be added to a store’s monthly employee morale budget.
  • At no time should the restaurant operate without an off-the-floor manager present.

  • Assistant General Managers base salary is $55,000.
Any raises or salary modifications will be given based on performance and are at the subjective will of the ownership and management team.
