  • Ensure food products meet quality standards for taste and appearance.
  • Ensure proper usage of kitchen equipment including combi-ovens, slicers, steamers, and mixers.
  • Follow production sheets to ensure correct quantities are made and available to all service areas.
  • Follow sanitation guidelines of federal, state, and HFAP regulatory agencies.
WHAT IT TAKES TO SUCCEED
  • Prior Institutional Cooking/Food Service experience.
  • Adapt to high volume and high stress areas.
  • Adapt and respond quickly to changing priorities.
  • Maintain composure, even in very difficult situations.
  • Basic computer skills with software, hardware, and communication devices to perform tasks.
  • Demonstrate basic cooking/baking skills.
  • Customer service skills.
  • Equipment maintenance and repair.
  • Follow directions as communicated in a variety of ways.
  • Follow recipes.
  • Work independently with minimal supervision.

  • Handle multiple responsibilities simultaneously.
  • Effectively communicate verbally and in writing.
