VIEW JOBS 9/11/2019 12:00:00 AM 2019-12-10T00:00 Our Line Cooks are responsible for the preparation, presentation and recipes of all menu items in their assigned station. What do you think? Sound like your cup of espresso? Around here we say our purpose is to bring people together to celebrate the love of family and friends. If it sounds like we have our own way of looking at the world, you're right! We call it The Maggiano's Way, and it means odds are you get us and we want to meet you… now! We're The Original Originator Once upon a long time ago, going out to eat meant either a fancy, pricey, fussy restaurant, or a fast food drive-thru meal handed to you in a greasy paper sack. Our namesake, Norman Brinker, changed all that by pioneering the idea of "casual dining". And he knew an original when he found it. Guests in Chicago knew Maggiano's Little Italy was special when we opened our doors on the corner of Clark and Grand. Today, thousands of restaurants later, Brinker International is the name behind good food, good times and great places to work. And Maggiano's is our own little slice of Italian American tradition come to life! Tony Soprano would be so proud. Working With Us Comes With An Extra Helping Of Helping Out Half the fun of making it in life is being able to share it. So part of our way of life is helping make the dreams of others come true, through the special events we host and special memories we help create. We've hosted our fair share of weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, birthdays and baby showers. There's nothing better than helping create lasting memories in our restaurants and in our community. It's one of the reasons we support the Make-A-Wish Foundation, making wishes come true for kids with life threatening medical conditions. On the local level, we support the North Texas Food Bank, and because we also have a heart for our own, making small contributions to the Brinker Family Fund adds up in a big way and helps out our own in times of need. Biscotti Is Just A Hard Cookie, Until You Dip It In Espresso There's nothing better than enjoying life to the fullest, and every now again, we need a little indulgence for working so hard in this fast-paced world. We know we ask a lot of our people. Long days, lots of energetic service, staying upbeat, putting everyone else ahead of ourselves, hoisting heavy plates of Mom's Lasagna! So what's in it for you? We're glad you asked – * Highly competitive earning opportunities * Healthcare plans, including domestic partner benefits (based on length of service and number of hours worked per week) * Career Opportunities and Development, including the potential of Global Training roles * Tuition assistance (based on length of service and number of hours worked per week) * Market Leading 401(k) Savings Plans with company match (based on age, length of service and number of hours worked per week) * Rewards and recognition programs * Discounts on items like mobile phones, travel, computers, and even autos! * Dining discounts at Brinker owned brands Our Kitchen team is the culinary equivalent of a great bottle of Cabernet—it just gets better with time. These Executive Chefs, Sous Chefs, Pastry Cooks, Line Cooks, Prep Cooks and Dishwashers, run our scratch kitchens with the fast pace and professionalism of any celebrity chef restaurant. But rather than those fly-by-night, flash in the pan restaurant hipsters that come and go every season, this team consistently delivers works of art to the tables of every Guest. They are true foodies to the core, energized by the creative inspiration of the dishes developed by our masterful culinary team in Dallas. It is a fast-paced environment that requires dedication and commitment to excellence, whether prepared for the special couple on Valentine's Day, or for the 250 friends and family attending the wedding of the year. This team is "all in". Brinker International is proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer, committed to workplace diversity, workplace working and workplace fun. The way we see it, life is short, so you might as well work happy. '279145 Brinker International Oak Brook IL
