In addition, on the summary page inside the report we noted increases or decreases from last years numbers. These patterns are certainly interesting and worth observing. Most notably, we noticed that salaries for hourly management employees had a large job. Rising an average 21% from last year! This is consistent internally at our company. Our recruiters noticed an uptick in recruiting needs for hourly management for our clients. More and more clients in this environment are offering competitive pay structures, in order to attract and retain talent. We believe this to also be the case with salaried Restaurant Managers & General Managers. In that segment, there was an average 10.5% increase from last year, in salaries for these positions. Decreases weren’t as prominent, except for Bartenders and Host/Hostesses.
