Thank you for your interest in The Boardroom!
The Boardroom is a "fast casual" restaurant, tasting room, and foodie event venue based in Redwood Acres, Eureka...and we're growing! Our fine meats, cheeses, and fermented foods, are made in-house in the European tradition and paired with a collection of imported and local products. We're looking for a few new team members (21+ only) to join us in multiple locations throughout Humboldt including McKinleyville, Eureka, and Ferndale.
Immediate openings include:
- Front of House, Part-Time: welcoming customers, taking orders and accurately processing transactions with our POS system, explaining our unique menu including our line of cured/smoked meats, all while presenting the retail and deli departments (depending on location). You are the "keeper of the vibe" and the vibe must be amazing.
- Boardaleros, Part-Time: building impressive charcuterie boards, preparing appetizers and desserts, serving customers and explaining our unique ingredients on the menu with a twinkle in your eye. When not building boards, you are cleaning tables...and thinking about those impressive boards you just delivered.
- Bartender, Part-Time: taking orders and accurately processing transactions with our POS system, serving all alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages to guests in a timely and courteous manner. You'll be obsessive about keeping glasses clean, while saying clever things that thrill and delight those around you.
How We Roll
Pay: starts at $14 hourly (+ tips) for a 40-hour probationary period. Those invited to continue after the probationary period will immediately receive a raise to $15 hourly (+tips) with significant bonus pay for ticketed foodie events throughout the year.
Tips: are "pooled", which means they are distributed evenly with all restaurant workers during any given shift and/or event.
Hours: are flexible, allowing parents, students, partially retired, and anyone with a life to join the team.
Strong Candidates Will Have:
Positive Attitudes and Strong Communication Skills: We're not a traditional restaurant, and we're seeking non-traditional employees. There are no "back room" positions, so everyone will be expected to have strong communication skills and provide top-notch customer support.

You may or may not be a huge Anthony Bourdain fan, but you'll certainly know who he was. For better or worse, you likely take pictures of food and have strong opinions about condiments.
Qualifications and Requirements: Must be able to read, write, and have basic math skills. You'll be able lift 35+ pounds. Mentioned ServeSafe certifications and proof of eligibility to work in the United States are required.
