Job Description for Kitchen Worker

Kitchen workers are responsible for tasks relating to food preparation and kitchen maintenance. The nature of this work can vary greatly. For example, a large restaurant or fast-food company may hire multiple kitchen workers, some of whom may only be required to undertake tasks relating to cleaning and organization, while others may be primarily involved in food preparation. In a smaller business, kitchen workers may be responsible for every job performed in a kitchen, including knowing and preparing every meal on a menu, butchering and cleaning meat, taking inventory, placing and receiving orders, and wrapping and storing food correctly with few to no co-workers. They may also be required to prepare or brew beverages and occasionally interact with customers. They are also usually required to wash dishes and antisense work stations.
