Looking for a New Worker-Owner!
RED EMMAS IS HIRING A NEW WORKER-OWNER for the first time in two years!! Calling all cooks: we're looking to add one member to our kitchen team, email firstname.lastname@example.org with a resume and a note about why you want to work for Red Emma's by 8/12.
We're looking for someone who is passionate about food - not just cooking and eating food, but the social, political, and cultural aspects of food too. Experience with cooking for large groups, or working in busy foodservice environments, especially commercial kitchens, is key. Our kitchen team is small, and we all fill a variety of roles, prepping, making orders, and cleaning & organizing our kitchen throughout our shifts. We handle a lot of volume with a small team, so the ability to stand for long periods of time, and to move and think quickly in a sometimes stressful environment is necessary for this position. We love intellectuals, and will happily geek out with you about revolutionary theory, but this is a kitchen job, and not a bookstore job, so please only apply if you are genuinely excited about food preparation. We're seeking someone who is psyched to cook and learn about restaurant ownership, and who will be a structural part of our kitchen as we wind down in our Mount Vernon location and gear up in our Waverly location. Ability to work some nights and weekends is a must.
Red Emma's is a worker-owned cooperative that operates a self-managed workplace. This is an ownership track position, and will involve (paid) meetings and back-end work, and all the joys and sorrows of small business ownership! We appreciate and welcome all applications, but especially encourage BIPOC and immigrant cooks to apply. Prior cooperative experience is not required, but excellent communication skills and patience for collective processes are necessary.
