I'm not writing this in any official capacity (read that as the company I work for did not tell me to do this, and if some how I offend you with this posting, it's my fault and *not* the company's)...anyways. Looking for a job? The Matt's Gourmet Hot Dogs locations in the University District (Brooklyn and 45th) and in Ballard (24ish and Market) are both looking to hire as soon as possible. You'd be working mostly nights. You start at $7.35 and have the opportunity to make $8.00 an hour after three months provided you know your ass from a hole in the ground. You have to drop off a resume- yes, an actual resume and no, an email address is not sufficient contact information (I was asked that yeseterday, believe it or not~ the guy wanted to just leave his email address in lieu of a resume, actually). We're only taking resumes because we handed out maybe 1000 paper applications since last March and received perhaps 50 of them back, and the cost is not worth it. The job? You will clean things and make hot dogs. When people aren't feeling like their stingy selves you'll even make some tips. You'll have to deal with the Ave bums but try to do it politely. We get rushed but it's nothing one person can't handle by him or her self if competent. The other people working there are awesome and great to be around, and you'll be trained up in no time at all. The U District is looking for one more person and Ballard is looking for two.
Oh- food handler's permit. It's illegal to work without one, so if you don't have one, you need to get one.
EDIT Minimum wage went up, so you'll start at $7.63/hr, not $7.35
