Job Description:
At Einstein Noah Restaurant Group, our mission is simple: to redefine the fast casual neighborhood café. We are defined by our fresh baked bagels and fresh brewed coffee, all served by our warm, friendly team in a comfortable, neighborhood café environment. We offer places--quite simply--where people want to be. The concept of fast casual is more than a trend. In fact, the $6 billion segment is one of the fastest growing niches in the restaurant industry.

As the nation's largest operator of bagel bakeries and the leader in the fast casual segment of the restaurant industry, Einstein Noah Restaurant Group is leading the cultural shift toward food that is fast, but never tastes that way. Think fresh-baked goods, made-to-order sandwiches, crisp salads and gourmet coffee.
We currently own three independent brands including Einstein Bros.®, Noah's New York Bagels, and Manhattan Bagel. Each sporting their own identity, the brands work independently in niches nationwide, but are growing stronger each year under the powerful umbrella of Einstein Noah Restaurant Group.
Our Success starts with our People!

We are looking for Team Members to join our team at our 728 North Western Ave. in Lake Forest location and we want to talk to you!

Our Crew Members are responsible for taking guest orders, food preparation, and food execution.
• Deliver a great customer experience every time!
• "Make A Connection" with your customers that is warm, fun, energetic and friendly.
At Einstein Noah Restaurant Group, we believe that taking great care of our guests begins with taking care of our employees, and we try to do a bang-up job with both. At Einstein Noah Restaurant Group we do something innovative around dinnertime; we close the store and go home. Our standard operating hours start early -- we open at 5am as a leader in the breakfast fast-casual segment -- and we generally close between 4 and 5pm. No more late nights!

That's called "Quality of Life", and it's just one of the benefits we provide to our managers. Other benefits include:
• Opportunity for advancement!
• No grills, fryers or grease!
What do you need to join ENRGI Nation?
• Six months experience working in food service is a plus -- you know the business!
• An energetic personality and a passion for the industry!
• Customer focused!

Restaurant Jobs Description

Cooks

The most important factor to consider when hiring a cook is experience. Preferably, experience in the style of food you will be serving. Cooking candidates should express an enthusiasm for the food you plan to serve. If a cook is professionally trained, be sure that they can handle the speed of a busy kitchen as well as produce delicious dishes. Food safety, such as a Serve Safe certification is also a plus. While cooks don’t need to be as personable as the wait staff or hostess, they should be someone who can work as part of team and be reasonably polite.

Wait Staff

If you are expecting a high paced, quick turnover rate each day, you need someone who can move fast. However, if the view of your restaurant is quiet, intimate, and slow-paced, such as fine dining, then you need someone who is comfortable that type of atmosphere. When interviewing for wait staff positions, ask each candidate what their strengths are. A server should be knowledgeable of the type of food you serve, as well as have a basic familiarity of wine and mixed drinks.

Host

The general job of a restaurant host is to meet, greet, and seat customers. Therefore it is an excellent entry-level job for someone without a lot of restaurant experience (or any). The host should be friendly and courteous, and also know how to handle rushes, waiting lines. A host should be an organized person who is comfortable multi-tasking.

Bartender

This position is often tops on the front-of-the house job ladder. To be a great bartender (and that is the only type you should hire) a person must have a wide knowledge of mixed drinks, be friendly to both customers and staff and be a good listener. Great bartenders can give quality, attentive service to their own customers, while still getting the staff their drinks. Honesty is another important requirement. The bartender handles a lot of cash each shift and you need to be able to trust that he or she will not siphon any off the top.

Dishwasher

This is usually an entry-level position in the business. While dishwashing isn't the most desirable job in a restaurant, it is one of the most important. It's always a good idea to be a little nicer to your dishwashers-- give them a free meal or a tip after a particularly busy night to keep them from walking off in the middle of a shift. Because, if they walk, there is a good chance the owner may have to finish the job! If an employee can stick out a few months in the dish pit, then they are worth bringing up through the ranks, since nothing else will help build character the way dishwashing does.

Busboy (also referred to as a Busser)

Often, the first promotion a dishwasher gets is to busboy. This position is ideal for a high school student. The busboy is a gopher of sorts. His main job is to bus the dining room tables, however he can be conscripted by the cooks to fetch ingredients that are running low, or by wait staff to help make desserts or salads. The bartender may have a busser restock his coolers, if he doesn't have his own bar-back. Bussing positions are an excellent way to gain exposure to all parts of the restaurant business, and a good transition to either a front of the house or back of the house position.
