Lake Theater & Cafe is a counter-service restaurant / bar / movie theater / live music venue / private event space just south of Portland in Lake Oswego. On sunny days, our outdoor lakeside deck fills up quickly and stays filled with thirsty patrons into the night.
Job duties of all staff are to greet guests, cashier, run food, bus tables, cocktail, and at the end of the night, clean up. It is a fast-paced environment where down time is not to be wasted. We always work as a team and expect each member of our staff to contribute equally to his/her fullest ability.
As bartender, you would be working evenings, weekends, and during private events, either in collaboration with another bartender, with the support of a bar back, or alone.
As cocktail server, you would be working those same hours, meeting the needs of our lakeside guests, developing relationships with them, and getting them coming back for more.
If you are a bartender with little experience of getting out from the trenches, or if you are a cocktail server with little experience behind the bar, that’s fine, we’re hiring to fill two positions anyway.
Applicants must possess strong interpersonal skills and attention for detail. At least one year of relevant experience is required for the position.
We pool our tips with the entire staff, though bartenders and cocktail servers get the largest two cuts of the pot. Including this, you can expect to be making an average of $15-$25/hour (that’s a wide range, yes, but because business depends on the weather). It’s a fun work environment and we have become a tight, in-tune crew.
Please submit your resume and any other relevant documents online through Poached. Thanks!
