Tukr offers insights into food service jobs available in New York City

Wilmington, North Carolina based tukr is reaching out to share information about food service jobs available in New York City. As a Food Centric Working Brand, tukr connects industry talent with restaurants, cafes, and hospitality positions through job postings and a resume listing board.

Adrian Willis of tukr says, “If you are looking to work in the food service industry, it can be helpful for you to know the types of opportunities you will have available. Since the industry can be large and varied, the exact nature of the jobs you will find will differ. The food service industry needs people to fill in all sorts of roles. We wanted to take a moment to highlight the types of food service jobs that are most prevalent in NYC.”


With food service jobs in New York City, job seekers will find that opportunities are available in four general avenues: restaurants, bars, cafes, and catering companies. While one of the benefits of food industry jobs is the fact that most workers can find jobs with flexible schedules that require no special training, the exact nature of the job will differ depending on their employer.

As tukr explains, in a restaurant, a worker’s duties will vary based on the size and type of establishment. Servers take customer orders, serve and/or make out checks, prepare and/or wash dishes/working areas/utensils as necessary, and may prepare and/or wash dishes themselves. Other common food service positions include busboys/hosts/dining room attendants who clean tables while washing working areas/utensils and sometimes stock shelves as part of their duties. They will receive a minimum wage of at least $15/hour, and they may receive tips in addition to their wages. Some restaurants even provide additional perks, such as free meals or gratuities and employee discounts.

It is also easy to find work in bars due to the prominent nightlife in New York City. According to tukr, working in a bar is an excellent opportunity, especially within Manhattan. Jobs in bars include everything from busboys and cocktail waitresses to kitchen workers and bartenders. Most of these positions also require no special skills or advanced degrees — making them ideal for recent college graduates who want to start working and earning immediately.

New York City cafeterias also have a need for employees. Cafeteria jobs will more often than not involve serving customers in a friendly, efficient manner by following established service standards and food preparation recipes and maintaining clean work areas, utensils, portable equipment, dish pit, and so on in accordance with sanitary standards. Workers will also transport food and supplies to designated areas while following storage, labeling, and dating procedures, and they will participate in daily menu conferences. They will prepare, cook, serve, and dispense food according to specifications, quality standards, and sanitary guidelines.

Anyone working for a catering company will be working closely with clients who require catering for corporate lunches, wedding receptions, nonprofit galas, and other such events. In addition, they will be involved with marketing activities, including prospecting new business leads as well as formatting menus, newsletters, flyers and other promotional materials for their event.

Specialized jobs, such as Coast Guard Culinary Specialists (CSs), within the catering industry ensure crew members receive nutritious meals that maintain morale on cutters, on land, and at VIP facilities. In addition, they manage all aspects of logistics, accounting, and food safety to keep crew members fueled up and comfortable during missions.
