We're in search of a new kitchen porter to join the team at Whiskey Soda Lounge. What's a kitchen porter, you ask? We could say it's a dishwasher, but that could be pretty misleading. When you work at Pok Pok, your responsibilities are broader and your opportunities greater than that meager title can fully capture. Plus, we have pathways in place for this role to rise to other positions within the company, based on your interests and desires to help build our brand with us. Here's the nitty gritty:
What we need:
o Someone with a hospitality-first mindset. That means, whether you're dealing with guests or other team members, you go out of your way to be kind and considerate.
o Someone who attacks all tasks with enthusiasm.
o Someone who is eager to help out wherever possible, even if that means stepping outside of what might be expected.
o Someone who is reliable and accountable in all things.
What you have:
o A positive attitude at all times, even when things get a little hectic or loud.
o An appetite for continually learning more about our menu and our brand, even exploring outside your "expected duties" in an effort to become a true Pok Pok champion.
o A need for order and cleanliness that borders on obsessive. Well before our customers taste our delicious dishes, their first impressions are formed by what they can see and smell.
o Ideally, you have 1-2 years of recent high-volume experience and a current Multnomah County Food Handler's Card.
Let's be honest, this job is physically demanding. There's lots of standing, bending, lifting and reaching throughout your shift. It can feel a bit crazy and stressful at times. But allow us to sugarcoat it just a bit, with a positive, can-do attitude, it's actually pretty fun. And because you'll be working with other like-minded, positive people, it'll be a rewarding and exciting job.
What we provide:
o A wage of $12.50/hr, paid bi-weekly, + tips
o The chance to shadow other jobs and move up in the ranks
o Holiday and staff events thrown by people who know a few things about entertaining
o Dining discounts at Pok Pok restaurants as well as the CHEFSTABLE restaurant group
Hopefully, we've convinced you that our kitchen porter is an integral part of our team and a role that can provide a real sense of pride. If so, stop in or send us your resume and let's see if we can add you to the revered ranks of Pok Pok kitchen porters who have come before you.
