Location: Saint Peters
Posted on: March 12, 2023

Job Description:

The General Manager at Hi-Pointe Drive-In is responsible for managing one of St. Louis's best fast-casual restaurants and leading a team of high achievers who are a little crazy in all the right ways. This position requires a high level of accountability, a genuine love for people, and the ability to serve A LOT of burgers. Although the General Manager is responsible for the profitability of the restaurant, success is also measured by your ability to develop the team, inspire them to be their best and to create a culture where people want to work. The team comes first, but Hi-Pointe wouldn't be the best burger in St. Louis without flawless execution of the food and service. The General Manager is expected to execute company recipes and standards and be able to think outside the box. (check our Instagram @hipointedrivein). Th

Here are a few sayings that define what we care most about...

Honored Hospitality - We don't take the privilege of service for granted. Every time you set foot in our coop, or just take home some tasty chicken, we're thankful. We show it. And that's what hospitality smells like.

People First - If you take care of people that take care of people, they will take care of people. We take pride in helping our people achieve their goals for now and into the future.
