Custodian and Inventory Manager

 

If you have a passion for helping others, communicate clearly, and love solving problems, we’d love to talk with you. Our employees are afforded comprehensive training and mentoring. Since we believe that events should be fun for everyone, including the host, the focus of this role is to prepare for the needs of each client and event, and maximize guests' enjoyment!

 

Duties include:

  • Maintaining the cleanliness and organization of event space, hallways/stairways, storage areas, bathroom, and office.

  • Stocking supplies (beverages, dishes, flatware, etc.) and keeping track of inventory.

  • Caring for/maintain equipment; performing minor maintenance as needed, or speaking with professionals (electricians, builders) as needed.

  • Setting up furniture for each event.

  • Some dishwashing.

  • Reporting maintenance problems and cleanliness issues to management.

 

Additional Non-Routine Duties:

  • Setting up other equipment or decor.

  • Additional support for staff around event needs.

Depending on experience, additional hours and responsibilities may be offered for proven skills and abilities.

 

Requirements:

  • This position requires pushing, pulling, bending, kneeling, and standing for extended periods of time.

  • Ability to use, or quickly learn, Google Spreadsheets, Gmail, and Google Calendar. 

  • Must be able to lift at least 50 pounds.

  • Must be able to communicate (verbally and in writing) professionally and effectively with guests, fellow associates, and vendors.

  • Ability to understand and follow directions and perform job functions independently.

  • Must be able to assess potential safety issues and proactively resolve them.

  • Must be able to work well with other team members.

  • Exceptional attention to detail.

  • Ability to grasp the importance of tasks (not just follow a checklist) and understand how they affect a guest's experience.

  • Fluent in English.

  • A desire to learn or develop skills is preferred.

 

Hours/Schedule:

This can be flexible as long as needs are met, but shifts would ideally start at the end of events (around 11pm or 12am) or morning.

Pay will depend on experience level.

 

Other considerations:

This position is part porter, part custodian, part quality control coordinator, and part stocker. If you're interested in working in this role but perhaps don't have all the skills yet, email us anyway and let us know. Perhaps a slightly adjusted job description works well too!

If you're interested and able, we will offer training for other job skills, such as operations and office management.

 

If you're interested, please send your resume to info@cookhousesf.com.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you!
