As a Shift Leader at Salsa Shop, you are responsible for making sure everything runs smoothly during your shift. When the General Manager is there, you support him or her. You supervise the Team Members and also assist customers with their orders. Together with your colleagues, you ensure the store is always clean and tidy, and that supplies are replenished. If necessary, you also help in the kitchen preparing food. You assist with the orders placed at the suppliers. When a problem arises, you are the first point of contact. When needed, you'll be working in the kitchen or another station. It's very important that you know everything, because when the General Manager isn't present, you'll be the ''Manager'' for the day. Which means, you - as a Shift Leader - are an allrounder.

You follow training courses about the food and learn how to interact with clients in different situations. There are morning, afternoon and evening shifts. During the morning shift, all the food is prepared and the evening shift involves a thorough clean and closing the shop.

You enjoy cooperating with different people and you have to be prepared to do the dirty work sometimes.

A day is enjoyable when everyone in your team and the customers are satisfied.

A day is less enjoyable if there are numerous problems with orders and it is too busy to deal with them properly.

Firsthand experience

You receive a call from a customer that something is missing in their order that has just been delivered. What do you do?

First, you apologize. Then you tell the customer that you will solve the problem. You call the delivery service that delivered the meal and ask if they can send another delivery person. The missing item is then prepared and given to the delivery person. This way you make sure the customer still has a positive experience with Salsa Shop.


You can develop from Shift Leader to Assistant General Manager (AGM). As AGM you are ultimately co-responsible for the store and the staff, and you learn what it is like to run your own business. After that, there is the possibility to move to the position of General Manager (GM). A GM is fully responsible for a store.
