Chef Trainee - Crocodile Cafe & Catering

June 12, 2015
 
Hi. My name is Kurt Linneman, Executive Chef & Owner of Crocodile Café & Catering in Wayne, PA.
 
We are THE most successful off-premise catering operation in the western Philadelphia suburbs. 11 trucks fully loaded most days. I am looking for a low maintenance, no B.S. individual who naturally loves food and wants to learn the business the right way.
 
I will personally lead your training program. But I need chefs that share my passion for food and efficiency. You enjoy studying culinary arts and business outside of work. In fact, it’s not “studying,” it is a hobby. You are a foodie who is ready to get serious about your career.
 
You see, here at Crocodile, we don’t take shortcuts. We make real food. We are sticklers for freshness and make most everything from scratch. We push culinary boundaries and need professionals who welcome the challenge that comes along with it.
 
Speed and quality will be measured in my kitchen and you must first pass my Chef's Test to work in my kitchen (covers basic recipes and cooking procedures)
My detailed training program will teach you how to quickly and efficiently prepare large volumes of homemade food with lots of color and strong flavor profiles (barbeque, salsas, soups, all kinds of salads, pasta dishes, Latin, Chinese, Indian, Mexican, Caribbean, Mediterranean, vegetarian, and regional American specialties).
Depending on your ability to learn and study, you will also be trained in:
• Knife Skills - we train and measure you for speed and accuracy
• Prepared From Scratch Hot Buffets (Mexican, Mediterranean, Chinese, Indian, Regional American, Latin, Italian, French, BBQ, Vegetarian, etc.)
• 50 Different Soups, Sauces, Salsas
• Menu Writing & Recipe Development
• Cold Buffet Arrangement (sandwiches, cheese trays, fruit displays, salads, desserts, gift baskets)
• Off-Premise Catering Buffet Set Up
• Off-Premise Barbeques
• Receiving/Ordering/Inventory
• Expediting
• Event Planning/ Special Events/ Proposals
• Food Cost Management
• Scheduling & Labor Cost Management
• Marketing/ Prospecting
You must be willing to take very specific instruction from the chef/ management team under pressure situations without getting your feelings hurt.
 
Some restaurant or customer service experience preferred. Culinary degree a big plus. Your work schedule will be Monday-Friday, days only (5am to 1pm approx.). Starting time will be determined during the interview process. Salary based on experience. Internships are also available.
Here is the breakdown of how you will spend your time on an ‘average’ day…” 
• 40% Hot Buffet- sauces, char-broiler, sautee, grill work, and soups
• 30% cold buffet- fruit, salads, cheese trays, sandwiches, trimming chicken, fast-paced food prep, etc. 
• 20% Deliver drop-off catered buffets to our Fortune 500 corporate clients (interacting with customers and potential clients is a big part of your job) 
• 10% Clean-up and set-up for the next day
• 
My Chef training is intense so you should be tough enough to handle the challenge.
 
HERE IS THE KIND OF PERSON WE ARE LOOKING FOR …
 
Here is what we test for pre-hire: verbal skills, math skills, computer skills.  We also do a criminal check, credit check, drug testing, motor vehicle, lifting test (50 lbs). You will also need to pass a basic chef test which covers sauces, condiments, etc.(we will give you a copy of the test so you can study it before the exam).
 
You will need a valid driver’s license with no more than 4 points and no DUI within the last three years. You should also have the ability to walk fast, stand on your feet for long periods of time. You should live within 25 minutes from King of Prussia. Philadelphia is probably too far because driving on the Schuylkill expressway every day will make you miserable.
Other things we require are...professional appearance…please show up on the time (you see, we don't believe in being out there “cracking the whip” all the time).
 
HERE IS THE SHORT LIST OF OUR BENEFITS…
(For a more details, go to croccater.com and click on “Work for Us”)

1) Learn the culinary arts from Executive Chef, Kurt Linneman
2) Frequent Reviews for Raises
3) Free Meal Plan
4) Health Insurance We use IBC and pay 70% of coverage costs.
5) Most nights & weekends off.
 
WHO WE ARE...
We are the largest, off-premise office caterer in the western Philadelphia suburbs (17 full-time employees, 5 part-time, 3 managers). We also have a café that serves lunch Monday through Friday.
We specialize in fresh food with lots of color and strong flavor profiles (barbeque, salsas, soups, all kinds of salads, pasta dishes, lots of ethnic, vegetarian, and regional specialties).
Turnover is low. In business since 1988. Strict no smoking…inside and out. We supply the shirts and hats, you supply the pants and shoes.
We have the best team of workers around, period.  We have a great training program with opportunities in the culinary arts, marketing and business management.
