Kitchen Fill in Workers Needed

by Willow Thompson
Jobs + Opportunities

The Kitchen Team at Breitenbush is currently seeking applicants with very flexible schedules, for fill-in work. 

We are seeking individuals with professional kitchen experience; vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free knowledge is a PLUS. Strong interpersonal communication skills and a helpful service ethic are a must, as well as a desire to live and work in an intentional community.


Overall job duties include: food preparation, cooking, cleaning, serving, dishwashing. Must have excellent knife skills (ability to slice and chop safely and efficiently) and the ability to lift and pull heavy objects. Experience working in both back and front-of-house restaurant environments is ideal. We are located in a remote area without public transportation, so access to a car will be important for Fill-In workers.


Breitenbush Hot Springs is an environmentally and socially mindful retreat and conference center located two hours from Portland and ten miles from Detroit, OR. Our kitchen is 100% vegetarian, utilizing mostly organic and locally sourced products whenever possible.
