As a Kitchen Manager, at The M Bar - your number one focus is ensuring every guest feels completely safe and satisfied when they enjoy the amazing "gastrogrub" prepared by you. Every food item on our menu literally begins with you and you are committed to cleanliness and accuracy. You have the "hospitality gene" and truly care about people. Your day may be spent in one station focused on prepping; or you may split your time on dish or even on the line based on the needs of the shift. You are focused and you are FAST - able to pivot from task to task while never cutting corners. A Prep Cook is a critical role - in our gastrobar - and in the industry. You like being busy and demonstrate pride in your work - you eagerly offer assistance to anyone who needs it and you aren't too proud to sweep or mop or take out the trash. Your genuine care for others helps grow our business. Our guests keep coming back again and again to enjoy The M Bar favorites - consistently prepped by you.
