Hire Commis Chefs

Commis chefs assist the different station chefs in the kitchen, working as a team to cook high-quality food and deliver excellent experiences for the guests. They generally prepare all mise en place for most items on the menus. They contribute to the departmental targets and the overall revenue of the restaurant. Commis chefs are junior chefs who study and train under the eye of the chef de partie or station chef, learning the ins and outs of the kitchen. The average base pay for an entry-level position of a commis chef starts at $25,740 per year, and can eventually make up to $89,000 per year based on ability and experience. A successful commis chef has a passion to learn and the drive to succeed in the culinary world.

Commis Chef day to day responsibilities

A commis chef’s responsibilities vary depending on the different workstations they are serving or the chef de partie they are assisting. Their duties involve preparing fresh ingredients according to the daily menu in a timely and efficient manner. They should ensure consistent food production, in line with the quality standards expected by the restaurant. They should be able to help out with deliveries, assist with stock rotation, and keep their workstations clean. They should be able to meet all health and hygiene requirements and be environmentally aware. In some kitchens, the commis chefs are in charge of maintenance, hygiene, and hazard issues. 

Requirements of a commis chef 

Typically, the commis chef should either come from a culinary training background or should be attending culinary school alongside their employment. Previous experience in the kitchen as a commis chef or apprentice chef is an advantage. The essential skills and attributes that a hiring manager seeks for this role are proactiveness, assertiveness, and attention to detail. Since the kitchen is a high-pressure environment, especially for the junior members of the staff, the applicant should have the ability to work under pressure with minimal supervision. They should have good listening skills, work well with others, and be able to take initiative. Additionally, the hire should be hardworking, disciplined, resilient, and have a good work ethic. The job is suited for candidates who want to do the hard work required to one day become a chef.
