employment opportunities at popolo

Popolo provides high quality professional service and first rate, carefully sourced cuisine to a broad group of diners. Doctors and lawyers sit beside laborers and service staff, families sit beside teenagers on a date, someone’s grandmother sits with the tattooed hipsters. We need to help them all have a great experience no matter where they’re coming from and where they’re going.

In addition to serving dinner and lunch we also promote concerts, movies, parties, and private functions like weddings and other special occasions both onsite and offsite. This variety of service and divergence of clientèle makes for a constant ebb and flow in our need for help. We strive to maintain a unified team with whom we are in regular and worthwhile contact. In a perfect world, this would be the most stable and friendly place we all spent time.

We’re attempting to build a team with whom we can provide all the aspects of what Popolo does in our community. Submitting your resumé may not yield an immediate position but we will keep your info on file and call you when something opens up. Arriving at the restaurant for an interview without an appointment almost never works to your advantage and it’s particularly discourteous during service hours of 11:30-2:30pm and 5:00-closing when everyone’s paying attention to dinner service.

Below are some of the positions for which we regularly employee new staff. In all cases we ask for a resumé but, when necessary, we have application forms available in the restaurant and online, here.

We welcome your questions and are happy to train new employees for positions on our roster. Really what we want are the right people and we can help get them in the right jobs. Not surprisingly we like nice people with a sense of community.

Please send your resumé and cover letter or any questions to info@popolo.us.

    dish washer & prep cook

    Dishwasher / Prep Cook is an entry level position. It’s hard work but not like, say, coal mining. It’s something of an athletic experience, done to the tunes playing in the kitchen.

    head chef

    From time to time our head chef’s position becomes available. It’s life. People move on, people have lives that need living. We find it wise to collect demonstrations of interest so we’re not caught off guard. Consequently, we’re posting the general thrust of the position though we expect the position to be in part defined by the applicant.
