Pop Pie Co. is a fast-casual restaurant/ third wave cafe specializing in the art of pie & coffee making. Our small, locally owned business is growing and with it comes the need to grow the team and offer opportunities to suitable candidates.
We operate in a fast-paced environment, requiring individuals with the ability to multitask, prioritize tasks, communicate clearly & effectively, problem solve, and most of all do all of these things while providing excellent customer service. We welcome every guest that walks in our doors, we thank them and we say goodbye as they leave. We use words like "would you like" instead of "do you want."
The shop is located in University Heights, adjacent to North Park and Hillcrest. Before submitting your credentials, please look at our website and our social media handles @poppiecosd to familiarize yourself with our brand and culture. If you feel it's your vibe, we'd love to hear from you.
Please also be aware that this position is far heavier on the food serving, running and cashiering side than coffee making (about 80/20). We'd prefer if you either have some coffee experience or at the very least a passion for drinking and making good coffee. We'll provide training before setting you free to roam our coffee bar. If you do happen to have in-depth coffee experience, this role can turn into a coffee lead position with a higher base pay.
We do have to make one more thing very clear Barista know-it-alls with bad attitudes need not apply. We are all about providing an excellent overall guest experience and this includes serving them coffee the way they want it and without being lectured about how they should or should not drink it.
To be considered, you must have:
-food handler's certificate
-excellent customer service skills
-ability to follow recipes and use scales
-the desire to learn quickly and grow within the role
-a positive vibe and "can-do" attitude
-a team first mentality
-food service industry experience
-high levels of awareness
-cash handling skills (closing and opening tills)
-a desire to learn or further develop your coffee knowledge and skills
-experience sweeping, mopping and cleaning bathrooms (no task is under any of us)
-basic knowledge of inventory concepts (FIFO, loss prevention, inventory counts)
-willingness to do some lite dishwashing
-the ability to lift 25 lbs.
We look forward to receiving your resume.
If you come in and prove your worth, we have no problem bumping the pay up immediately. Our employees earn excellent tips!
