How to barchef

Your primary task as a barchef is to keep your head cool and keep an overview of both the bartenders and the bar in general. 

In addition, the barchef has to follow the opening and closing procedures. Barchefs are expected to take greater responsibility by keeping the bar neat and by doing the opening and closing procedures correctly.

When you barchef it is also important to remember your bartenders. They volunteer just as much as you, so don’t just boss them around. Also it is important to ask them if they are feeling good, need breaks or make sure there is food for the bartenders who have earned it (see below)

If you have a shift(s) longer than 4 hours (aka two shifts, a thursdaybarshift or a partyshift), then you as a bartender or barchef have the right to a meal worth 40 kr. It is the barchef that has the responsibility for getting/ buying/ making sure food is made for the concerned shift. Bartenders are allowed to remind the barchef. 

When buying food you MUST keep the receipt and add it to a “udlægsseddel”/ expense sheet which is found in the purple folder (where open/closing reports are also found). The note must be filled out and the receipt is added with a paperclip and put in the shelf in the officed (marked “udlæg”). NB: Cardreceipts CANNOT be used as proof of expenses.

You as a barchef choose when your bartenders and yourself can have breaks. Barchefs are encouraged to offer breaks instead of bartenders having to ask for them. The bartenders can of course still ask for breaks, but you should assess whether the bar is too busy or if it is a good time to have a little break. The amount of pauses is not set in stone but it is depending on whether the bar is busy during that shift. The bar should however never be empty from volunteers due to people having breaks. 

Furthermore, the barchef having a break is encouraged to keep an eye on whether the bar needs you. If it is too busy you should keep your break short and hurry in to help your friends behind the bar and maybe postpone your break. 

Barchef overfor bartendere

Den vigtigste opgave du har som barchef er at holde hovedet koldt og have et overblik over både bartendere og baren generelt.  

Derudover skal barchefen sørge for at følge åbne- og lukke-procedurerne (Se: Procedurer). Fra oktober 2019 af er der desuden sket en stigning i “lønnen” til barchefer. Barchefer får nu 37,5 kr. i timen – til gengæld er der også et større ansvar for at holde baren præsentabel og følge de nye åbne-/lukke-procedurer.  

Det er også vigtigt, at du som barchef husker dine bartendere. De er her alle frivilligt, og de skal derfor ikke bare “hunses” med. Som beskrevet herunder er det desuden vigtigt at spørge om de har det godt, har brug for pauser eller sørge for, at der er mad til dem (hvis de har arbejdet mere end 4 timer – se næste punkt) 

Har man mere end 4 arbejdstimer (e.g. to vagter, en torsdagsbarvagt eller en anden festvagt), har man som bartender og barchef ret til et måltid til en værdi af 40 kr. Det er barchefen, der har ansvaret for, at der bliver hentet/købt/sørget for, at der er lavet mad til den pågældende vagt, men bartendere må meget gerne minde barchefen om det.  

Ved køb af mad SKAL kvitteringen gemmes og vedhæftes en udlægs-seddel, som findes i den lilla mappe (hvor åbne/lukkerapporter også findes). Sedlen udfyldes og kvitteringen vedhæftes med en papirclips og lægges i rigtige skuffe på kontoret (markeret ‘udlæg’) OBS: Kortkvitteringer kan IKKE bruges til bevis for udlæg!
