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 and fermented foods are made in-house in the European tradition and paired with a collection of imported cheeses and local delights. We're looking for a few new team members to join us in multiple locations throughout Humboldt including McKinleyville, Eureka, and Ferndale. Immediate openings include:
- Front of House, Part-Time (Eureka, Ferndale): Responsibilities include welcoming customers, taking orders, and accurately processing transactions with our POS (point-of-sale system). You'll enjoy explaining our unique menu, teaching interested customers about our meat curing/smoking process, and offering products "to go" from our deli and retail section. You are the "keeper of the vibe" and the vibe must be positive and welcoming at all times. Those interested in extra hours may be considered for prep, depending on experience.
- Boardmakers, Part-Time (Eureka, Ferndale): You are in charge of building impressive charcuterie boards, preparing appetizers and desserts, and serving customers. This isn't a "back room" production job. You'll regularly interface with interested customers about our unique homemade ingredients, board pairings, and deliver with a smile. When not building boards, you're making your workstation spotless for the next board and prepping tables for future guests. Those interested in extra hours may be considered for prep, depending on experience.
- Bartender, Part-Time 21+ (Eureka, Ferndale): The Boardroom's bartenders serve imported and domestic wine, craft beer, and non-alcoholic beverages to guests in a timely and courteous manner. You'll be obsessive about keeping glassware and the general bar area clean, while saying clever things that thrill and delight those around you. You don't need to be a sommelier or cicerone to be successful in this position, but you will need to be interested in food. Those interested in extra hours may be considered for FOH shifts as well, depending on experience.
- Dishwashers, Part-Time (Eureka, Ferndale): you may or may not have restaurant experience, but you'll be ready to work. You'll do dishes, sweep and mop, possibly even clean restrooms. One thing you won't do is make minimum wage.
How We Roll
401K: 401K retirement benefits.
Pay: Depends on experience (see "tips" below) but no one makes minimum wage at The Boardroom.

Hours: are flexible, allowing parents, students, partially retired, and anyone with a life to join the team.
Strong Candidates Will Have:

Food Interest: Future hires may come from food manufacturing, the wine industry, brewing, or have traditional restaurant backgrounds. 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. This isn't a requirement, but we'll know you when we see you.
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.
