If you enjoy detail-oriented work, solving problems, and being part of a small team, we’d love to talk with you! Our team members are afforded comprehensive training and mentoring in a fun and friendly environment. Since we believe that events should be fun for everyone, including the host, the focus of this role is to prepare the venue 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.

  • Caring for/maintaining equipment and performing minor maintenance as needed.

  • Setting up furniture for each event.

  • Some dishwashing.

  • Reporting maintenance problems and cleanliness issues to management.


Additional Non-Routine Duties:

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



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

  • Must be able to lift at least 50 pounds.

  • Fluent in English.

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

  • 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.

  • Must comply with Cookhouse safety guidelines and create a safe working environment for all staff.

  • A desire to learn or develop skills is preferred.



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 early in the morning.

The number of events per week varies, but is usually between 2-5. Hours will vary for each event, but are usually between 4-5 per shift. 

Pay will depend on experience level.


Other Considerations:

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 would work!

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


To Apply:

If you're interested, please send us your work history and at least two professional references.

We look forward to hearing from you!
