Restaurant Roles and Job Descriptions


If you pull back the curtain on any successful restaurant, you’ll see a diverse team of employees working to make the whole customer experience happen. From the dishwasher to the hostess, each restaurant role forms a link in the chain of support to keep the business operating as smoothly as possible. If you are considering starting a career of any level within the food service industry, it’s helpful to know which skill set best fits your personality and abilities. For example, if you have a great memory and can operate gracefully under pressure, a serving position in a casual or fine dining restaurant may be just the right gig for you.  Or if you like working in a fast-paced environment, the world of fast food may be better suited for your energy level.

In the illustrations below, we’ve outlined what makes each type of restaurant tick. Learn all about the different restaurant roles and job descriptions and add any that we missed in the comments below! Illustrations created by Roman Martinez for FSW.
