    Forget 1 year managing kitchen, ask for at least 5 years experience, with references.

    Thanks for the advice.  That would be ideal.  However, if the right personality and leadership traits are present, I would consider 1-2 years experience.  I have learned that a person that has average technical skill with above average personality and leadership traits will always outperform the person with a boat load of experience but is lacking leadership skills.

    I  had to comment after seeing your post. One minute after joining this community, I came across it, and the coincidence made me smile.  I am originally from Cleveland, and after many years around the U.S., I have thought about coming back to Northern Ohio, where my brother and sister now live in, yes, Akron.  And with a last name that is so throughly German that most people can't pronounce it, I have a soft spot for German foods.  If I hadn't just started a new job in Asheville, NC, I would take this as a definite call to come home to Ohio!

    Good Luck in your search-
