Job Posting for Restaurant Service Team at Vessel Kitchen
Let's be honest. It's hospitality. We're not performing open heart surgery, nor trying to. Every job description is the same. We're all trying to polish the turd. Below is the full version of the job, featuring all the legal-ise and flowery language you can handle. We know you're not with us for life. But we think we can have some fun, and you can make some "cheddah" (money, people).
So what sets us apart?
We pay better than pretty much any other service team/fast casual gig. Promise.
At Vessel, every hourly staff members shares equally in the tips, based on how many hours they work.
We give you a free meal per shift, two if you're working a double.
You can interact with some guests, and have fun working with our quirky, slightly insane team.
You can chop some veggies and learn better knife skillz. Yes, with a z.
You can grow into a keyholder, which pays more, usually within a few months. Maybe even a supervisor. Who knows?

Between a mountain of fast food and a handful of great restaurants out of reach for daily dining, we saw an opportunity for something better: A fine dining vibe at fast casual affordability and convenience. Bright, clean, and authentic. Scratch preparation and flavors from around the world. This may be an uncommon concept, but it’s everyday at Vessel.
