Passionate, consistent, prompt, quick on your feet, and with an eye for detail. Good at prioritizing time and keeping an upbeat and level head during busy times and at staying productive during slower times. Able to repeatedly lift 50lb ingredient bags without injury. Previous kitchen experience is preferred but not required. We are here to train in all aspects of the job. We re looking for people who care about the work they do--we can teach you skills, but we can't teach you to care.
Good taste in music, and a dry sense of humor also a plus.
Windy City Pie is a Chicago-style pan deep-dish pizza restaurant. We make most of our items from scratch (dough, house-ground sausage, house-pickled veggies) and are always working to provide impeccable service and quality. Started from humble beginnings--slinging pizza out of a condo and meeting people on a street corner--we've grown into a popular, well-regarded, full-service restaurant in Phinney Ridge. We have very low turnover and are looking to continue to foster a team that takes care of its own.
We have a very flat management structure, so everyone is expected to, over time, learn all aspects of the operation. You should be willing to work the line, manage incoming orders, run ovens, and do all the prep that comes with pizza, i.e. making dough, batching sauces, and processing cheese to name a few. Creativity is encouraged--bounce new ideas and punny names off one another to create deliciousness. We're looking to train new line leads and prep leads, so if you're looking for a job where you can grow, this is it!
Pay starts at $18/hr + pooled tips (currently averages $7+/hr) = effective $25+/hr. Your growth as a team member and ability to adapt to new roles will be the primary basis for increased compensation and promotions. We always take care of our family and promote from within! When you're kicking ass, we will make sure you're compensated for it.
