Zoës Kitchen – Why Work For Us?

Simply Mediterranean

Feel the Flavors of Life

Far away on a map but deliciously close at hand, lies the Mediterranean. A unique Region of the world wherelife radiates with goodness. The food is simple and honest. The lifestyle is fresh and vibrant. The experience is unforgettable.

Zoës Kitchen was born of this spirit.

Embark on a journey through the Mediterranean as we explore the foods, sights and sounds that make this corner of the world truly unique and endlessly inspiring. It's the perfect place to experience the little luxuries and traditions that make life rich. 

undefinedWith more than 50 locations (and growing!), Zoës Kitchen believes in making a difference in the communities we call home. At Zoës, giving back to our communities is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  1. By partnering with schools and children's groups to celebrate the creative spirit of children and to raise funds.
  2. By on-site hosting or off-site catering of your fundraising event. Your neighborhood Zoës can partner with your nonprofit group to customize a fundraising package where a percentage of proceeds are donated to your cause. 
  3. By providing the gift of Simple. Tasty. Fresh! Zoës Kitchen Gift Cards are available in various denominations for use at silent auctions and other special events to raise funds and help build awareness for your nonprofit organization.

    I have been working at Zoës Kitchen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is easily the most fun I've had working at any concept in my career. The leadership is solid, the food is fantastic, the team has a high chance of success, and the Guests truly enjoy what we're doing. The tremendous growth and the opportunities it brings are added bonuses. There is enough structure and support so that you aren't on your own but not so much that it kills the energy you can bring to your team.

    Cons

    I don't consider it a con, but you have to like to work at a high pace with a lot going on at any time, either in or out of store. If you're not ready to be "all in" you won't enjoy it. But if you like to be busy and build sales, this is the right place.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zoës Kitchen.

    Interview

    The interview process was relatively easy. I was offered a job the same day, and then went in for a working interview soon after. The working interview is basically a formality. I never witnessed anyone lose the job after the working interview. Just put your best foot forward, stay out of the way but stay engaged. Be helpful and willing.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me how I felt about customer service and asked me to give some examples of when I'd done well and not so well.   Answer Question
