Cooks Needed - Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill

Weavers Way is looking for experienced Cooks to work in our Prepared Foods departments in our Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill stores. These positions are full time and require the ability to work evening and weekend hours. We pride ourselves on offering a wide array of quality items for our shoppers, and Prepared Foods is no exception. We make all our prepared food offerings from scratch, so the ideal candidate will have knowledge of fresh ingredients and a passion for making wholesome, delicious food.

The right candidate will also have the following skills/requirements:

  • At least one year of experience working in a mass-production/high-volume kitchen or high-end restaurant experience
  • Excellent knife skills
  • Extensive knowledge of cooking a wide array of recipes, including familiarity with vegan, vegetarian and global cuisine
  • The ability to work independently and have a discerning palate is a must
  • We are looking to groom our employees for management positions, so management experience is helpful, but not required
  • ServSafe certification a plus

If you love food — eating it, cooking it, talking about it — this could be the right fit for you. These positions are full time, 40 hours/week, including at least one day of the weekend, and hours can be in both morning and night. Defined hours/shifts are to be determined.

Compensation is commensurate with experience. Hourly starting pay is $12.

We are looking to fill these positions ASAP. Interested applicants are highly encouraged to learn more about us at prior to applying.

Resume required. Applications without resumes will not be considered. We read and appreciate all cover letters.
