+ Chefs and Head Cooks Job Description
Though some people think the words "chef" and "cook" mean the same thing, in the restaurant world, there's a big difference. Chefs are more highly skilled and better trained than most cooks, and have more responsibility for designing the meals that make a restaurant's reputation. But it's not all about the food. This job requires good organizational and management skills. Sometimes called a head cook, the chef supervises the entire kitchen staff and keeps track of supplies and schedules > view more

+ Cooks, Fast Food Job Description
Fast food cooks work in local diners, bars, and restaurants, and in locations operated by national fast food chains. They prepare hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza, French fries, fried chicken, deli sandwiches, and other basic menu items. The hours are long. The work is often part-time. The pay is not much above the minimum wage. And there are usually no benefits. Yet being a fast food cook has a lot to offer those with their eyes on a career in food services > view more

+ Cooks, Restaurant Job Description
Across the nation, over 700,000 restaurant cooks prepare literally millions of meals each day, most of them cooked to order.

Yet that's the challenge restaurant cooks routinely meet and master many times over. Specific duties vary depending on the restaurant > view more

+ Food Preparation Workers Job Description

+ Food Service Managers Job Description
Food service managers are not only responsible for putting food on the table at colleges, large restaurants, and institutions; they're also responsible for the preparation of how the table is to be set up, as well as for the preparation of the server who takes the order and delivers the meal. In fact, food service managers do everything that restaurant owners do but on a much larger scale: they confer with chefs and cooks regarding the items on the day's menu, the size of the portions, and the price to be charged; they keep a sharp eye out for waste; and they do their best to maximize profitability without sacrificing quality > view more
