Rose Park Roasters is looking to fill a combined Prep / Line Cook position. It's potentially a full time position depending on availability (30-40 hours weekly) with flexible opening and/or closing shifts, all between the hours of 6am-5pm. Line Cook or Prep Cook experience is required. Sunday and Wednesday availability is required.
We are a local craft coffee roaster with two locations in Long Beach. This Line / Prep Cook position is for our downtown Long Beach location at 800 Pine Ave where we serve breakfast/lunch menu from an open kitchen using seasonal ingredients and making every element of the menu from scratch, which means you will have the opportunity to learn or use techniques that are not common in many kitchens: fermenting kimchi and other things, making mustard, making lots of emulsions, smoking foods on a small scale, baking off pastries, making biscuits, etc. We are a small team and you will be working right alongside the owners. Because of our small team size and the labor intensity of making everything in-house, it's a challenging position that requires excellent time management, willingness to work really hard, and a hunger to be held to very high standard. Everyone multi-tasks to handle the line, dishes, running food out, bussing tables, and handling anything that needs to be handled during a shift. We are also an all-electric kitchen, cooking almost everything on a few induction burners, an oven, and a couple Anova's. There's no hood or fryer. If that sounds like a fun challenge and if you're excited about elevated, seasonal cafe food, enjoy working hard, are good at communicating with customers and co-workers, and want to help us contribute to an increasingly creative culinary scene in Long Beach, please apply! We believe very deeply in what we're trying build.
