Be honest with the interviewer about how much management experience you have. If you have experience with supervising staff, writing performance reviews, coaching employees, hiring, interviewing, terminating employees, scheduling, or motivating, be sure to mention these things.
If you do not have management experience, now is the time, to be honest about it, and talk about how excited you are to learn. Odds are, the interviewer will ensure you receive more training when you begin your new role because they know you will benefit from the extra knowledge!
"I have been in a management role for eight years, starting as a keyholder, then assistant manager, for the local bar and grill. In my current role, my management responsibilities include hiring, terminating, training new staff, and taking care of customer disputes. I look forward to expanding my management experience to include a larger tea and bigger restaurant facility."
"I am new to my pursuit as a restaurant manager but have had some experience in reviewing resume's, training new employees, and helping with customer care. I look forward to additional training as a manager. I am a quick study and dedicated - you won't be disappointed in my performance!"
