Have you always longed to be a cheesemonger? Do you even know what a cheesemonger is? Righteous Cheese is DC’s newest cheese shop, located in Union Market, and is seeking a cheese lover to join our ranks.
Us: An artisanal cheese shop and bar, offering unique, uncommon handmade cheeses made locally and around the world. Our cheese bar is a great spot to post up and enjoy one of our daily flights (cheese & wine/beer pairings). We always approach cheese with reverence but don’t take ourselves too seriously.
You: excellent customer service, make customers laugh, love to learn, hardworking, can hustle your behind when necessary, very friendly and easy to get along with, loads of enthusiasm even under pressure, a great team player with a positive attitude, and most importantly - passionate about food! Experience in food/restaurants is required, but the passion for food and desire to learn is the most important attribute of a successful candidate.
The job: You’ll learn the business of cheesemongering, how to pair cheese & wine/beer, and get loads of practical experience in both. The more experience & knowledge you already have, the better the pay. The position is a hybrid of cheesemonger, server and garde manger – which means you’ll have plenty of different duties to keep you challenged, but will need to be flexible and adaptable. The bar is very busy, so you’ll often be required to think & move QUICKLY. You must be available at least Friday evenings, as well as a full shift on both Saturdays and Sundays. Additional weekday shifts are available if desired.
Do not apply if: you are only interested in working one day a week, or if you think this job will be easy. It will not. There will be times that you’ll be seriously annoyed with difficult customers, but you’ll have to maintain a sunny disposition. You will be required to learn a lot of information on cheese/wine/beer and know it backwards and forwards. You will have to clean. There will be times that you are exhausted and ache from carrying huge wheels of cheese. But you’ll have a great time with our crew, and you’ll learn a lot about the world of cheese, wine and craft beer, as well as gain experience that is tough to get elsewhere.
If this sounds absolutely amazing to you, please email email@example.com with resume and cover letter explaining why you’d make the best cheesemonger around!
