We're a New Orleans inspired casual dining cafe-style restaurant near the Ashby BART Station. We need a person for both front and back-of-house (everybody does both). We need a cashier, wait person, busser aka bus person, server, runner, prep cook AND dishwasher. Everyone here does everything. Essentially, we want a jack of all trades, master of some kind of person. It would help to have had management experience but it’s not required. What is required is to send a resume. Don't just swing by to chat with us. We will contact folks to come in for interviews.

Availability: We are open 7 days a week, AM and PM. Must be available to work some weekend shifts, evenings, etc.

Experience: Y'all MUST have service experience of some type. Managerial experience strongly preferred. Fast track to manager for motivated individual.

Don't Stress Out: Gots to be able to multi-task with a level head. Things get stressful. You need to deal with your stuff and make sure everyone else is too and supporting one another to boot. 

Down With Other Humans: Gotta be able to get along with all types of folk. This is a must. Our staff and customers cross all lines of race, orientation, and ideology. It's grotesque that this is an issue, but: if you can't take orders from a woman please don't waste our time by applying. Most of the management is female. Also, no racists or fascists, thanks.

Service skills: Knowing how to interact with the public and be patient with them is critical. Our joint is unusual and we have to be proactive with making people feel comfortable and explaining our wacky jazz. We're mostly cynical curmudgeons, but everyone has to be able to exude sunshine and lollipops despite their potential existential disillusionment.

Clean Driving Record: We have extra hours and extra money for someone who can drive to offsite catering and do setups.

As previously mentioned: everybody does everything. You're gonna help customers, plate entrees, wash dishes, dice vegetables, mop floors, bake corn bread, dice plates, mop entrees, bake customers, and wash corn bread. Everything. (Except the main cooking, that is.) Pay is $15-17 an hour plus a piece of the tip jar to start.

SEND A RESUME, for Cthulhu's sake.
