Responsibilities and Duties of Sauté Cook

Working in a Fast-casual restaurant is a challenge.  It is fast work and you are often running around a lot especially during the “rush” period.  Having a “sense of urgency” is paramount.  Our turnover of customers is a very short amount of time, multiplying the number of orders taken and cleaning of the tables.  Customers are typically in a hurry and want fast service. This is how our restaurant is set up and best run at.

In spite of the pressure of work, it is important to remember to be cheerful, friendly and considerate of the customers’ needs. Preparing your station and keeping up with its demand relies solely on you.  There are many opening, side and closing duties needed for the restaurant to function in a productive cycle, which you will be expected to participate in including food preparations.  These are outlined in reminder sheets; checklist and procedures that your manager will point out to you and explain.
