Job Title: Bar Manager

Posted on July 14, 2022

Job Description:

Bar Manager


The Bar Manager position oversees the sale of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages before and during events. This position provides leadership and training for Capitol Theatre Committee (CTC) bartenders.



This position reports to the CTC Patron Services Manager. This position works closely in collaboration with CTC House Manager and outside vendors. This position oversees all CTC bartenders.



The Department Head positions are expected to be hands on leaders in their areas of expertise and model the manner and quality of service CTC expects of all of its staff. These positions are “working heads” and are expected to fill the various roles of bar staff while accomplishing their other duties. As part of a leadership team, the Department Heads work together to oversee all front-of-house staff and volunteers in the facility, not only the ones in their departments. Department Heads are expected to teach good work habits alongside training specific front-of-house staff in the more detailed aspects of their departments.



The Department Head positions are 10 month appointments, starting in September and running through the end of June. Depending on the summer months’ schedules, the appointment can be extended through the end of August at the discretion of the CTC Patron Services Manager. There are no term limits on appointments, and any Department Head can re-apply for the position the following season.


Due to the nature of scheduling the use of rental facilities, there is no set number of hours per week for these positions. Though no guarantees on the number of hours are made, Department Heads are given the right of first refusal on all work shifts in their departments up to a max of 40 hours per week. Department Heads may work more than 40 hours per week but lose the right of first refusal on shifts once they have worked 40 hours.
