Here are a few of our favorite resources.

Four Websites to Hire Restaurant Employees

The restaurant industry is constantly in flux, and so are how hiring managers find their best employees. Posting effective restaurant job ads online is an easy and smart way to reach a variety of capable candidates. However, with so many recruiting sites, it’s hard to know which ones target the most seasoned restaurant employees that best fit your team’s needs.

CULINARY AGENTS

Boasting over 1,220,000 members and 38,000 businesses, Culinary Agents has the power to reach a diverse population of foodservice professionals. Their platform is dedicated to helping job seekers excel in their hospitality careers. As a job poster, you are casting a wide net and potentially scooping up enthusiastic and professional restaurant talent.

  1. Post open restaurant positions directly on your website.We recommend adding job structured data to improve the chances of your job being shown in Google search.
  2. Post a job to third-party job sites that are participating in the job search experience on Google. 

Pricing: There is no cost for advertising restaurant jobs on Google.
