Hiring creative, responsible, experienced scratch cooks

They say artists have to suffer for their art to be great. We disagree.

Friend That Cooks Personal Chef Service has a dual mission. We have a service that improves the quality of life for both our clients AND our chefs. We don't believe you should have to sacrifice your evenings and weekends to make a career out of cooking. We don't believe in 6-7 day work weeks and 12-16 hour shifts. We don't believe great cooks should spend their career forced to prepare other chef's recipes, use sub-par ingredients or work in high pressure environments that prevent you from leaving your work at the workplace.

If you have a culinary degree (not a certificate), own a reliable vehicle, have a smart phone and know how to use it, are great with people, and have a huge repertoire of ethnically diverse dishes you can make from scratch without recipes, WE WANT TO TALK TO YOU.

Our personal chefs work mainly weekday hours from 8'ish to 5'ish. Evening and weekend opportunities occasionally arise, are optional, and pay automatic overtime. Our chefs start part-time at $17/hr plus some benefits, then advance to $18/hr and full benefits when their schedule reaches full time. They get creative freedom with their food (within the tastes and diet restrictions of their clients). They also have the best work environment in the food service industry.

The primary job of a Friend That Cooks chef is to provide in-home weekly meal prep to our clients. Our client's homes are our job site. Our chefs plan their menus, shop, cook on-site, clean up and stock their refrigerators with a week's worth of creative, delicious, prepared meals to reheat.

To be one of our chefs, you'll need to pass an intensive interview process that includes culinary knowledge and cooking tests. The right candidate will start part time at $17/hr and enjoy the benefits listed below:

  • Automatic raise to $18/hr upon reaching a full schedule (full time)
  • Automatic overtime for parties and cooking lessons (part and full time)
  • Occasional tips (part and full time)
  • IRA retirement plan with company contribution (part and full time)
  • Monthly cash healthcare bonus (full time)
  • Paid maternity/paternity leave (part and full time)
  • Equipment allowance (full time)
  • Gas reimbursements (part and full time)
  • Free uniforms (part time and full time)

We require two weeks of training, possibly requiring travel to another city which we pay for. There is no selling involved on your part. We provide all your clients and you get to focus on what you were born to do, creating and cooking.

To be considered for our position, send three professional references and your most recent resume to jobs@friendthatcooks.com. Applicants who do not follow these application instructions will not be considered for this position.
