Barista Opening - 20-35 hours per week
Zocalo Coffeehouse & Roastery
, is a locally owned coffeehouse and roastery located in Northern San Leandro.
We are looking for a new staff member to work 20 to 35 hours per week. Excellent short term memory, ability to multitask, and work at a fast pace are essential. We are hoping to bring an experienced barista on board to bring something new to our knowledge to continue to expand our skill set.
Pay is $8 per hour to start and we provide an opportunity for an immediate raise at a three month appraisal. Tips are substantially better than the chains. Our scheduling is flexible for college students, other jobs, and the like.
We roast our own beans in-house and are an artisan coffeehouse serving fair trade and organic beans and striving for a quality of espresso higher than you are likely to experience elsewhere. We are always trying to improve the quality of our products. Unlike Tully's, Starbucks, or Peets we are part of a real community. Zocalo hosts fundraisers, community meetings, and are currently holding a film series. As an in-house roastery we provide the opportunity to intern and possibly work as a roaster for the coffeehouse.
Zocalo was named California Small Business of the Year 2006 by Senator Liz Figueroa, Rookie Business of the Year in 2003 by the San Leandro Chamber of Commerce.
We are an Alameda County Green Certified Business.
Job Duties include:
- counter work
- espresso, brewed coffee, and other drink preparation
- closing and stocking
We are located between Oakland and Hayward and are within easy travel distance from Mills College, Chabot College, and Cal State East Bay.
