Job Details

Porchlight is looking to hire a server to join our growing team!

Porchlight is a New York bar with a Southern accent. But what does that mean? Well, we have married the hospitality, soul, drink, and food of the ever-evolving South with the hustle and innovation of the big city we call home. We were born in New York of Southern roots, and we love to reminisce about our home cities of Charleston, New Orleans, or Memphis…but we wouldn’t trade them for New York. Even when the L train isn’t running.

In our pursuit of the Next Great American Cocktail, we are always learning about new ingredients and techniques we believe our guests will love. We shy away from dogma at all costs (don’t we get enough of that on cable news?). We do what we do for you, and we derive sincere pleasure from bringing people together, sharing our passion, filling your belly, and making you feel more than a little tipsy.

Who you are: Servers are responsible for ensuring that all guests who dine with us have memorable experiences filled with hospitality, delicious food and drinks, and exceptional service. The Server is the backbone of our Service team and is ultimately responsible for the sale and service of our food and beverages, while acting as a leader on the floor and providing our guests with warm and attentive hospitality.

What you’ll do:

  • Demonstrate expertise of all food and beverage menu items with sound knowledge of all ingredients and preparations.
  • Consistently follows steps of service with efficiency and grace, while maintaining a sense of urgency throughout service.
  • Anticipates guest needs, ensuring constant communication with colleagues, management, and the kitchen at all times during service.
  • Maintains the high standards of cleanliness and appearance throughout all areas of the restaurant both before, during and after service.
  • Demonstrates an eagerness to continue to learn and grow.

What we need from you:

  • 1+ years’ experience in a guest-facing restaurant role
  • English fluency and additional languages preferred, but not required
  • Ability to stand or walk for long periods of time
  • Ability to balance & carry multiple plates, glass racks and or/glasses, and lift objects up to 30 lbs.

What you’ll get from us:

  • Competitive hourly pay + tips
  • Comprehensive Medical, Dental, and Vision insurance
  • Paid Time Off to support you with an active life outside of work
  • Paid Parental Leave
  • 51% dining discount throughout the USHG family of restaurants
  • Flexible Spending Options (health care, dependent care, transit & parking)
  • Employee Assistance Program to support overall mental wellbeing
  • Exclusive access to primary care, mental health, and other healthcare services through Radish Health
  • Matched 401(k) to help you invest in your future
  • Generous Employee Referral Program
  • Access to the USHG HUGS Employee Relief Fund

Please note: This job description is not intended to be all-inclusive. This position may be required to perform other related duties to meet the ongoing needs of the restaurant.

If you have a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act or a similar law and you wish to discuss potential accommodations related to applying for employment at our company, please e-mail [email protected] for assistance.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity and inclusion and belonging at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

USHG will make reasonable accommodations under applicable law for qualified individuals to enable them to perform the essential functions of the job, unless doing so would create an undue hardship for the Company.

Benefits

USHG is proud to offer all qualified employees a package of employee benefits including; Medical, Dental and Vision Insurance, Transit Discount program, 401k, Flexible Spending, Direct Deposit, Corporate Fitness Discount programs and an Employee Dining Program.

  • Medical: Each of our PPO plans is designed to help you meet your healthcare needs and manage expenses for you (and your dependents) including the option to use in-network or out-of network providers. Our medical insurance offers three different options to employees with USHG sharing the cost of the premium with enrolled employees.
  • Dental Insurance: USHG offers two dental policies: an in-network plan, and an out-of-network plan. We cover 100% of the cost of the “In Network” Plan for you (an individual plan) or we will apply a set dollar amount per month to the cost of your plan if you choose to add dependants or to go out-of-network using the Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plan.
  • Vision: USHG offers a supplemental vision insurance program. The in-network plan includes an annual eye exam and a pair of glasses or set of contacts.
  • Transit Program: All employees are eligible to elect to set aside pre-tax dollars each month toward the cost of commuting. You may choose up to the Federal Allowed maximum per month and these elections are deducted pre-tax. As a result you will pay less in taxes each year.
  • 401(k) Plan: USHG offers a voluntary retirement investment plan that allows you to defer a portion of your income and use pre-tax dollars to save for your retirement. All employees who are 21 years of age or older may elect to participate after 12 months of continuous employment.
  • Flexible Spending Accounts: All employees who have completed 12 months of continuous, full-time employment may elect to set up Flexible Spending Accounts in January of each year. Flexible Spending Accounts allow employees to defer pre-tax income to pay for certain eligible expenses including health care costs not covered by health insurance, transportation to work, and qualified child care expenses. Flexible Spending allows you to increase the income you take home by reducing the amount of taxes you pay for qualified expenses.
  • Direct Deposit: We offer direct deposit of paychecks to your financial institution at no cost to you. You may sign up for direct deposit at any time.
  • Corporate Discount Programs: As a USHG employee, you can get a discounted rate at area gyms and massage services. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to stay healthy and strong!
  • Employee Dining Program: Through this program, we hope to make dining in our restaurants a reality for all our employees. The program starts out as a discount program and adds Dining Dollars over time.
