can teach you everything you need!
Being on the Taziki’s Hospitality Team means you get excited about serving fresh food you’re proud of and have a desire to take care of your guests, making meaningful connections with them. It means you get that knowing our menu inside and out is the key to helping a guest order a dish they’ll love, and that serving a perfect meal requires you to embrace the challenge of checking every single detail before placing it in the hands of the guest who ordered it. It also means you make the choice to collaborate and communicate well with your team in a fast-paced setting to create a clean, enjoyable environment.
WHAT YOUR TEAMMATES SAY
“I enjoyed working at Taziki's. I was friends with all of my co-workers so it felt like a family! I had good pay and great hours! I enjoyed learning how to do a lot of things in the kitchen!”
“It has been by far my favorite job. I love the brand and what Taziki's stands for. The food is all fresh every day, everything is made that morning.”
A DAY IN YOUR TAZIKI’S LIFE
As a Hospitality Team Member, your day starts with the heart of what we do – helping the team prep delicious food! Say hello to your team, grab your prep sheet, and dive in. You may have some pita to season or cookies to bake - the best smelling job in the house! Then you’ll check the Dining Room and guest areas to make sure they are clean, stocked, and beautiful. Before the doors open for lunch, you’ll work as a team to assemble catering orders and get your register areas ready. Next, you’ll welcome guests (get to know your regulars by name!) and place both Dine-In and Take-Out orders for them. When you hear “Runner!”, you know it’s time to take a hungry guest their order - but check it closely, because you’re the last line of defense for a perfect meal! On your way back to the kitchen, see if you can clear any dishes or tidy up the Dining Room so guests can enjoy it. Keep an ear out for the phone, as you’re the one guests are counting on to place phone orders with or maybe ask about hours or directions. As the shift winds down, you’ll clean and organize your work and guest areas, making sure all is good to go for the next crew. You might grab a tablet and do some online training courses to learn a new station or aim for a leadership role before heading out. Say goodbye to your team, be proud of all the people you fed today, and come back tomorrow to make it happen again!
