Hire Dishwashers

Hiring a dishwasher means hiring the unsung hero of your restaurant. No matter how great your food is, or how great your waitstaff is, without trusty dishwashers your entire business is going to grind to a halt. In fact, many places call them “porters” instead of dishwashers to convey the level of respect they deserve. While their salaries are low (about $20,000 on average in the US), hiring a good dishwasher can be a challenge when there is so much competition for their services.

How to hire dishwasher more efficiently

Know when to hire. Summers are when hiring dishwashers heats up, and it really spikes going into the holiday season. Hiring and training during the milder seasons can help you get a leg up and find more, and better, candidates. Since you may get many applicants, pre-screen them on your hiring portal with questions like years of experience, proximity to your business, and other specifics on the qualifications your store needs.

 

List the nuances of the position in your job posting

Washing a literal dish is straightforward enough, but dishwashers often go much beyond that. Does your location utilize an industrial dishwasher? How much of the washing is by hand? Are there other machinery, like an industrial coffee machine that needs to be properly disinfected? Will bussing tables be a sometimes part of the job? Being specific in your needs can help narrow down the list of applicants before they click apply, saving you time and energy.

Some typical requirements for dishwashers

Most locations require at least 1 year of experience, but if you are willing to train up someone from scratch, that can attract more candidates. Make sure they can lift at least 20-30lbs and can work on their feet for 8 hours at a time, or however long your shifts are. If being bilingual is an additional desired skill, make sure to list that as well.
