                  Dishwasher / Kitchen Help

We are very busy and require your help.  Business has picked up compared to the prior years and shows no signs of slowing down.  We need to expand our kitchen crew and that's were you come in ...

Thank you for your interest in a job with Yummy wine bar & bistro.  My goal is to hire like minded people who possess a strong professional demeanor with a laid back attitude, but most importantly knowing the proper time & place to display them both.  


We are a casual upscale full service bistro seeking a person for a self motivated position requiring little culinary training, but lots of maturity and willingness to learn.

Although this dishwasher/kitchen help receives a great amount of on-the-job training, it is often useful in landing this job having already some basic culinary or kitchen experience from prior employment (but not required). 

Yes, a kitchen can be a high-pressure work environment, and our dishwasher/kitchen help will need to have a skin that is thick enough to deal with the inevitable challenges. The dishwasher/kitchen help is an integral member of our kitchen staff. Although a dishwasher/kitchen help has less responsibility than other kitchen staff members, the work that they perform is nevertheless crucial to the overall success of this kitchen. For this reason, the successful dishwasher/kitchen help will learn how to work well in a team, will take responsibility for their actions, and will consistently pay attention to details.

This dishwasher/kitchen help's role is to washes dishes, utensils and cookware following established procedures; assist with food preparation as requested; assist in performing cleaning tasks as needed in the kitchen; assist in properly labeling, covering and storing food items; assist as requested in inventorying and stocking food products and supplies; thoroughly complete all assigned closing duties; and perform all other duties as assigned. Tasks will also include performing kitchen scheduled cleaning and detail cleaning. 

This is a hands-on position. You will work continuously in this position ... at times harder then others.  High energy is a must, with a quite attitude.

This is a small independent business, not a corporation … but professionalism is required.

This is a *Part-Time Year Round position , 5 days per week (Thursdays thru Mondays) with an average of 20 hours per week annually (more in the summer average 25-ish hours, less in the winter average 15-ish hours) which includes weekends and some holidays. Your shift will start at 7'ish (depending on the season) and end at around 11p.m.'ish (again depending on the season). 
*For the right person, this position can be full time year round or it can be share with another staff member.


We are different here; we have no microwave or deep fryer. This place is not a diner, it's a bistro … personality and work ethic must be appropriate for this environment. The size of this kitchen can only hold 3 working bodies; able to work as a team is a must.

The whole bistro is a total of 1600 sq/ft with 128 sq/ft of that being our small kitchen, off to the side of the kitchen we have a 6x8 walkin cooler and a 7x7 dry storage room (with a reach-in freezer in the dry storage room). We have no banquet room and we do no catering. This is not a corporate kitchen, it's a small business kitchen.

We are a FOH crew of 2.5 people and BOH crew of 3.5 people. FOH crew consist of 1. Full-time Unit Manager/Server  2. Full-time Lead Server  & 3. Part-time Bar Back (pouring drinks and supporting the Servers).  BOH crew consist of 1. me the owner/chef (can do and does every job at any given time), 2. my right hand person (sous-chef to dishwasher to closing duties for the kitchen & restaurant to everything in between), 3. prep cook/kitchen help (able to do what is required to get the bistro ready for the day), & 4. part-time dishwasher/kitchen help (runner, plates desserts & platters, dishwasher & closing duties).


Advancement opportunities are prep-cook, sous-chef, chef and learning the skills required to run your own bistro.

IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER … Because of the seasonality of the North Oregon Coast it takes a person (and their family) who can handle long dark wet winters with beautiful sunny happy summers, limited social gathering spots in the winter with fun filled events & activities in the summer, slow small town energy in the winter with busy tourist destination in the summer. The summer part may sound exciting, but the winter part seems to be a challenge for many. Take all this seriously before sending in your resume and cover letter. We are not looking to fill a position … we are looking for the right person.
