Line Cook This entailed the set up and break down of a station that was responsible for cooking select menu items to order. Depending on the day and the station this could mean chopping vegetables, preparing garnishes, making pizzas in a 600 degree oven or sauteing full entrees.


Everyday was an entirely new challenge you could conquer. When customers were happy with their food and made it a point to let you know, that sense of pride in your work is like no other.
