All applicants must provide an email address, phone number, home address, and background check information. A public library is a great place to access a computer with the internet if you don’t have one. In order to work with our fabulous teams, you must maintain a passing federal/state/local criminal search and drug screen profile.
Promotion and Growth Potential
Our commitment to hiring, training, and rewarding the right people ensures that our employees are more than just hard workers for you and our team. They’re Service Stars, and that means they can be counted on to go above and beyond, every single day.
There are many moving parts in a kitchen and in our business! When a valued performing staff member expresses interest in growth or change, we jump on it with them! Skill-building classes are held monthly with the Chef and Registered Dietitian. Cross-training can be internal for inventory, receiving, quality assurance, food prep, and franchises. Cross-training may also include concessions, vending, catering, and special events.
Northwest ISD’s Manager in Training (MIT) program is a rigorous six-week hands-on and classroom-style training. It is designed to give you the knowledge and experience needed to be a successful manager. MIT runs twice per school year (Oct-Nov and Feb-Mar). Classes are in designated kitchens as well as weekly classroom meetings. The permanent schedule or pay rate does not change during the program. The selection process for MIT includes application with resume; team interview; review of attendance and performance; and scheduling for participation. Applications are collected at the start of the semester and must include an endorsement from a current manager. All managers must attend MIT and pass ANSI standardized certification to hold a cafeteria management position.
We provide monthly management meetings for the whole team to grow together. Aramark provides wonderful online learning opportunities and possibly even tuition assistance. At Northwest ISD, we are continually growing!
Management promotions happen from primary to secondary schools, from hourly management to salary supervisory, from operations to administrative leadership, and eventually (we want this for you) from leading a piece of our NISD business to leading a new piece of Aramark business elsewhere.
