One of Poolside's partner restaurants, Furious Spoon in Logan Square, is hiring for their team of line cooks! They’re a fast casual restaurant known for their fresh ingredients, homemade noodles, bold bowls, and hip hop tunes.
A Day in the Life At This Restaurant
After showing up on time to your shift, you'll set up your station—mise en place—for the night ahead. Your organizational skills and ability to work well with the people around you will set you up for success in a fast-paced kitchen, and your stellar knife skills will come in handy as you execute a full night of covers while working in a scratch kitchen.
Is Past Experience Required?
Yeah, it is. Furious Spoon is looking for candidates with 1-2 years of experience. Ideally you have a culinary background with awesome knife skills and familiarity working in an all scratch kitchen—it’s what they are proud of!
What Availability Is Needed?
You'll get 20-25 hours per week. This is an evening shift 6pm - 12am. Availability is flexible throughout the week but you must be able to work Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 6pm - 12am.
What About Pay?
You'll make $12.50 an hour.
What Makes This Restaurant Stand Out?
Furious Spoon is the #1 place to get a bowl of ramen in Chicago. Everything is made from scratch, even their handmade noodles. It’s where ramen meets hip hop--a great combination. Plus, you’ll get to work with Michelin-starred chef Shin Thompson, who has gained a steady following for his bold bowls.
Furious Spoon also likes to give their line cooks a lot of responsibility around production and ordering. Plus, there’s lots of room for growth and to move up into a supervisor role. Working in a cool environment with a chill team devoted to fresh ingredients? Yes, please. You even get a 50% discount off of food and you’re even eligible for benefits after a year.
