Job Description:
"We are truly glad you are here and we will do
everything we can to make you want to come back" - we
refer to this statement as "The Message". The Message is
the guiding principle that has helped make P.F. Chang's
China Bistro the company it is today. Whether you work
as a manager, dishwasher, wok cook, or a server, your
role within a P.F. Chang's restaurant is a key component
to the successful execution of our concept.
Our culinary team is the backbone of our operation. We
can't treat our guests to an amazing experience if we
don't have talented culinary professionals running the
kitchen. Our concept is culinary-driven. You will work
with the freshest ingredients, the cleanest kitchens,
top of the line equipment, and standards of operation
that are unmatched in our industry. It's a pride thing -
when you are asked by friends and family, "hey, where do
you work?", you can answer proudly, "I work at P.F.
We are currently looking for a Sous Chef. The literal
translation for sous chef is “Under-chef” which means
the Sous Chef is second chef in command. Although second
in command may not sound as satisfying as first in
command or head commander… or any other
command/commander that has a primary title, don’t let
the number fool you. At P.F. Chang’s, the Sous Chef has
just as much responsibility over the back of the house
as the head chef. If your Head Chef or Culinary Partner
is absent, you become the head of the kitchen, so
understanding all aspects of the kitchen is imperative.
As a primary “go-to” for the kitchen staff, you are
expected to be available to your team while staying on
top of the functions and flow of the back of the house.
You work alongside at least one other Sous Chef while
reporting to the Chef/Culinary partner as well as the
Operating Partner. Communication is important for
understanding and dividing tasks for the day. A large
portion of your day is spent directing and supervising
your kitchen staff. You’re a leader, so lead by example.
Create a rippling effect by carrying out your own
responsibilities first, in turn you can motivate your
staff to do the same as you assign and delegate other
tasks. Hopefully you don’t mind checklists because you
can never have too many! You conduct regular line checks
as well as complete daily prep lists, ordering guides,
opening and closing checklists, and food and cost
