Chef Instructor

This isn’t your typical chef gig; this is about sharing your passion and knowledge of food and cooking with others. Consider what it would look like to work at one of the busiest recreational cooking schools in the country and make a difference in people’s lives every single day. Only people with positive attitudes, love for customers and a true passion for The Chopping Block’s mission to “Get this Country Cooking” need apply. Our Chef Instructors support guiding people into the right classes, setting them up with the recipes, instruction and kitchen equipment they need to get cooking as well as selecting the perfect wine to pair with dinner. Please note we require all Chef Instructors have at least four years of experience cooking in restaurants. This position requires evening and weekend work at both locations of The Chopping Block. 

Class Assistant

Class Assistants have a unique opportunity to work with our highly trained chefs to educate our students about the world of cooking and learn new culinary techniques themselves! Formal culinary education is not a requirement, yet an ability to demonstrate relevant hands on industry (or equivalent) experience is essential to be considered for this role. High energy and enthusiasm are a must to be considered for this position. This position requires evening and weekend work at both locations of The Chopping Block.

Retail Concierge/Sales Associate

Our Retail Concierge/Sales Associates are interested in building long-lasting relationships with our customers and have a positive “can do” attitude. Team members will be trained to be knowledgeable about our expansive and unique line of professional cookware and gourmet retail items. Please highlight any visual merchandising, receiving, or stockroom organization experience in your cover letter. This position requires evening and weekend work at both locations of The Chopping Block. 

The Chopping Block is an equal opportunity employer.
