Back Print

December 23, 2022

Restaurants often look for innovative ways to hire and retain staff. Hiring the best employees for your establishment is always essential and top of mind for restaurant owners and operators. Securing a good team can mean higher customer satisfaction and increased revenue. Looking for top restaurant job posting sites to help you hire exceptional team members? Here are a few of our favorite resources.

Best Places to Hire Restaurant Employees

The restaurant industry is constantly in flux, and so are the ways in which hiring managers find their best employees. Posting effective 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.


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. 

In addition to an excellent hiring pool, Culinary Agents provides recruiting and job marketing solutions to help establishments flourish. 

Pricing: Culinary Agents offers multiple pricing options. Some plans require zero monthly fees, and instead, have a cost-per-posting method, individual posts start at $49. Others have monthly fees up to $100, with limited free postings available.


If you’ve been working in the restaurant industry for a while, then you’ve likely heard of Poached. Their employment marketplace allows restaurant owners to post jobs for a variety of positions, including hosts, bartenders, chefs, managers, and more. Plus, their recruitment pool is often stacked with foodservice professionals looking to work in their particular field. Employers can seek permanent hires or fill an empty spot on the fly with Poached on Demand.

Pricing: As of November of 2022, job listings start at $59 for full-time hires; however, monthly plans are available beginning at $10 a month. Members get discounted post costs and one free job boost per month.

If you are using their staffing service, postings start at $39, plus the hourly rate for the employee.

Google for Jobs

Most of us are familiar with Google as a search engine tool. However, Google offers a unique platform for restaurant job postings. The Google for Jobs feature allows potential hires to discover careers linked to their Google search, so it’s less of a traditional job posting site. However, with 99,000 Google searches every second, you have the opportunity to capture a lot of attention. If you are looking to take advantage of this feature, there are two options:

  1. Post open positions on sites directly on your website. 
  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 Google for Jobs.

Good Food Jobs

Good Food Jobs’ employment marketplace focuses on restaurant and agriculture occupations. They boast a base of over 150,000 users dedicated to food-related industries. Employers can post for positions that range from prep cooks to farm workers, marketing experts, servers, and more. All posts are live for 60 days, allowing a broad audience to see open positions over an extended period.

Pricing: Single posts start at $60 and go up to $450 for 15 postings. However, they offer a sliding scale option that makes Good Food Jobs’ pricing structure unique. Their “Pay What You Can,” program is great for businesses struggling with costs, but still wanting to hire an exceptional team. Restaurants should contact Good Food Jobs directly for payment options.
