LINE COOK - Monk’s Café is seeking to add a motivated line cook and a student apprentice. Please forward a copy of your resumé if you are a detail oriented cook with several years of line cook experience or if you are a stellar culinary student. Monkʼs Café has been rated as an Excellent dining experience by the Philadelphia Inquirer’s restaurant reviewer. Craig Laban awarded a “3 Bell” rating in October 2018. You will work alongside talented Chefs in a very busy environment, so you must be able to work efficiently under pressure.
You must be able to work both quickly and accurately, but more importantly, you must have a helpful demeanor. We are all here to make our guest's visit a wonderful experience. No attitude, no tantrums, no FOH vs. BOH bullshit & no Prima Donnas. Most of our coworkers have been working here for over 10 years. Now we need to add a cook to our family. If you’re up for a challenge, this could be the home for you.
A minimum of 2 years line experience at a busy restaurant.
Culinary training is a plus.
Possess a true passion for the art of food.
Work well under pressure and keep a helpful attitude.
Must have a Philadelphia Serve Safe Certificate
Please attach a Microsoft Word or PDF resumé for review. Including your resumé in the body of your emailed response, in addition to the attachment, will be helpful. We will follow up on your references and then contact qualified applicants to set up interviews.
This a full-time, five-day work-week. We will propose a mutually agreeable schedule for a paid student apprentice. We serve our full menu from 11:30AM until 1AM every night (Closed Thanksgiving, December 24th, December 25th and whenever our beloved Eagles are in the Super Bowl). We will provide you with a set schedule so you are able to have a life outside of work, but we may occasionally need you to cover an additional shift. Our kitchen closes at 1AM and you are expected to help clean every surface, every shift. Think about your transportation home – can you catch a train, bus, ride a bicycle or take a Taxi/Lyft/Uber at 1:15-1:30AM?’
Non-smoker preferred. This is a professional kitchen – not a party kitchen. We are looking for a self-starter who can motivate his/her coworkers. Are you up to the challenge?
