Find Jobs in the Restaurant Industry

The restaurant industry employs a total of 12.9 million workers in the U.S. alone; it is one of the top private-sector employers in the country. Industry giants like McDonalds employ thousands of people, not just in North America, but all over the world as well.

Given the sheer number of jobs the restaurant industry generates, it should be relatively easy to find Subway jobs or Wendys jobs, right? Right, and also, wrong. Yes there are many restaurant jobs available, but the large number of restaurant jobs also serves as an impediment in finding the right match for you. Imagine having to manually search and sort through all postings for Taco Bell jobs, IHOP jobs, Pizza Hut jobs, etc. Your Career Genie helps you narrow down your options and find a fulfilling career.

An entry-level McDonalds job or Denny's job could be the start of an amazing career. According to the National Restaurant Association, 80% of restaurant owners reported starting their restaurant careers in entry-level positions. Working your way to the top from cashier at Dunkin Donuts or sandwich maker at Subway is not only educational, but life-affirming as well.

Even if you're past the entry-level stage, there are many more restaurant jobs at food franchises, beyond the staff you see in the restaurants themselves. For example, aside from the Restaurant Management, Business Development, Finance and Food Science, the McDonalds Corporation lists job opportunities that include Architectural Services, Aviation, Government Relations and Social Responsibility. Coffee mecca Starbucks lists positions in Call Center, Design, Engineering, and IT. Starbucks even has Green Coffee and Tea Management as an employment option. Dennys lists Compensation and Benefits, and Customer Service postions. Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) has openings for Media Specialist, Instructional Designer and Wellness Manager.

In short, jobs in the restaurant industry aren't all about slinging food and drink. Yes, you could also apply for jobs working directly with food, if you want. When interviewed, many of today's top chefs will say that they started out as dishwashers at McDonalds or busboys at Subway.
