How to Get Hired
We asked The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
We’re looking for candidates who will embrace our unique culture and values, will strive to fulfill our Mission of absolute guest satisfaction, and, most of all, are “So Cheesecake.” “So Cheesecake” people have four specific qualities: they ooze warmth and hospitality, radiate positive energy, never compromise their incredibly high personal standards of excellence and love to have fun and celebrate. We look for certain actions and behaviors that help indicate whether a candidate is “So Cheesecake.” Do they have a “resting smile?” Do they treat everyone around them with warmth, respect and caring? And do they lift up others around them through positivity and teamwork? If the answer is yes to all of those questions, we think they’ll be a great fit on our team.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Every candidate should start by completing our online application and culture fit assessment on CakeCareers.com. Especially for candidates looking for hourly restaurant positions, we welcome you to come into the restaurant to make a personal connection with staff and managers during our regularly scheduled hiring events. We always want to meet energetic people who are interested in joining us. If you have previous restaurant experience, be sure to share that with us. If you’re looking for a position as a restaurant manager or applying for a corporate position, complete an application on our Cakecareers.com website, then head over to our Life at Cheesecake Facebook page and send us a private message. Show us you’re motivated and engaged, and you’ll be much more likely to land an interview.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
In the coming year, we’re focusing on hiring for our kitchen teams, especially dishwashers, line cooks and prep cooks. Every one of our restaurants makes 250 different menu items from scratch, every day, and having strong kitchen teams is absolutely critical to our success. If you love to cook, you can have a successful culinary career at The Cheesecake Factory. We offer industry-leading, best-in-class training that develops cooks into true culinary professionals. We also offer business and leadership training to those who aspire to grow into kitchen management and executive roles.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Get to know us on our Cakecareers.com website and “Life at Cheesecake” Facebook page. You can find information about our job opportunities and culture and get a glimpse of the “So Cheesecake” moments our staff and managers experience every day.
