Hello! Long time no see!
We are looking for a few new faces at Macro Mamas! We are excited for the opportunities we have ahead of us this year, but we need a few more motivated individuals to help us make everything happen! Please get in touch if you are interested in working with us. Send a resumé and a cover letter to us at email@example.com.
About the work:
We start most days at 8 AM with the goal of finishing by 4:30. Our kitchen is a supportive, collaborative, and light-hearted environment, but we also take our work seriously. We hustle! This job is fast-paced and requires physical endurance and mental clarity. There’s a lot going on here almost every day. We are always striving for excellence. We are a fun, close-knit, compassionate group. We all care about the work that we do, and we all want to do it quickly, safely, and efficiently!
Our busy season is from mid-April to mid-December. We ask that people make a commitment for the full season when they join our team. From mid-January until April, we cook for our wholesale accounts, and there are some opportunities for employment during that time.
We’d like to hire people who:
· can self-direct
· are comfortable working independently and as part of a team
· can read and execute a recipe confidently
· trust their own taste buds
· can lift up to 50# safely
· can focus and multi-task even when surrounded by activity
· share our passion for sustainability and seriously good food
