Sneakers Bistro is looking for a quality-minded, creative, and dependable culinarian to fill out our talented team. We are a breakfast and lunch cafe with a long and decorated history. Our employees are family to us and are respected and well supported. There is a lot of from-scratch prep, baking, and line cooking. We take pride in our perfectly poached eggs, homemade English muffins, and famous hollandaise sauce. The kitchen team has many talents to share with someone who is ready to learn; additionally, we welcome your creative contributions. Teamwork is essential to our success. Dishwashing shifts are currently filled, but none of us shy away from jumping into the pit when coverage is needed. Cooks and expediters have also been seen running food to customers and bussing tables after all the prep is done. We believe it is our team that sets us apart from other restaurants.
Compensation for line cooks includes an hourly rate plus a share of the tip pool, bringing the average rate to $20-22 per hour. We offer paid time off after 90 days of employment for employees regularly scheduled for 18 or more hours per week, holiday pay for employees averaging 32 hours per week, and retirement benefits after one year. Shift meals are a given; we hope you will enjoy the fruits of your labor.
This job requires availability from 7am to 3pm. Weekends are important. We definitely take breaks, but we are on our feet all day, and with the prep kitchen in the basement, we do a fair amount of stair climbing. While the job is physically demanding, we love having our evenings free to spend with family and friends, and with the restaurant closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, our “weekends” allow us to enjoy other restaurants and entertainment on the less crowded days!
To apply, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by the restaurant at 28 Main Street in Winooski.
