Wholesale Delivery Driver/Front Counter Staff

Submitted by jmatthei on Tue, 05/02/2017 - 4:18pm

Hewn, an artisan bakery located in Evanston, Illinois, is now hiring an additional wholesale delivery driver.  This is a perfect part-time job for someone looking to supplement their income while pursuing their artistic dreams and aspirations.  Most of our non-baking employees are artists, musicians, actors and dancers.  We love creative people who enjoy being part of a team!

In addition to wholesale responsibilities, this person will also have the opportunity to fill in shifts for our front counter area, serving customers, plating product and making espresso drinks.  Training will be provided.

Food safety certification is preferred, but if you don't have it, we will have you take the course and test at our expense.

We recently expanded our store, more than doubling our size.  This is a great time to join a small but growing, family owned business.  

Hewn has been recognized in the New York Times, Chicago Magazine, the Chicago Tribune, Saveur magazine and many other local and national publications for our commitment to making naturally fermented artisan breads and pastries.  We have a wonderful team of people who share our commitment to making the best possible products.  We are a part of Evanston's burgeoning food and drink scene, and we appreciate being in a diverse community.
