The Colonial Grille is aggressively trying to hire. We are looking for a line cook, (preferably an experienced breakfast cook), a server, possibly 2 (must be able and willing to work weekends and evenings) and dishwashers. If anyone or any one you may know wishes to begin a career in the foodservice industry, is working in the foodservice industry (and is hoping for appreciation) or is currently unemployed and wishes to restart a productive life, please mention to them that we are hiring. The Colonial Grille is a busy, but fun place to work. No corporate framework here. And Downtown Irwin is a great place to be!!
Applications can be picked up at Colonial Grille or downloaded from our website.
Advice to Applicants
Thank you for your interest in working with us. I think you will find our approach to hospitality a bit different from that of other operators in the market and we think this is the secret to our 50 years of success. The Colonial Grille has several significant goals:
TO CONTINUE TO EARN THE REPUTATION AS A FAIR AND CONSCIENTIOUS EMPLOYER
We will hire the most qualified people we can find. We will support their development both within and outside the organization. We will talk to them, listen to them, pay them fairly and demand a lot from each of them. We will hire people with experience and also people with no experience, believing that everyone that wishes to work is entitled to a first chance. We also believe that it is a wonderful experience to watch great people go further.
TO OPERATE A VERY SUCCESSFUL RESTAURANT AND CATERING SERVICE
Our operations will be exciting, diverse and profitable. We will strive to deliver on our service and our smiles. We will provide "good food served right." We will continue to be the restaurant to go to for friendly, familiar faces; great breakfasts; hearty lunches; fantastic soups and reasonably priced, delicious dinners. We will continue to be the caterer of choice in the Norwin and surrounding areas.
TO HAVE A GOOD TIME
We recognize that people go out to eat because they are looking for a good time, not just a good meal. We will build fun and lightness into our business in the interest of our collective mental health and peace of mind.
TO MAINTAIN A PERSONAL WORKING RELATIONSHIP WITH OUR STAFF
We believe the way to achieve the kind of business environment we want is to create a trusting relationship with our staff. In this atmosphere, both staff and company can work out difficulties and make decisions together. We cannot imagine a problem that we cannot effectively resolve among ourselves.
