Lots of jobs for enterprising food service industry workers in Austin, Texas. A full time, front of the house worker can look forward to a wage of roughly 5k per annum, while certain back of the house toilers may earn 15k. Of course any employer offering a cook $15 per hour {31k} will have folks parachuting into the parking lot of the restaurant ready to put his life on the line for such an astronomical wage. To add value to this weekly feature I’m going to talk wage with some of my friends in the food industry in Austin. First up, one of my good friends “Matt”. He’s a rare, rare earner in this field. After cooking since the 1980s he stumbled upon a corporate kitchen job in town that, after 5 years, now pays him $18 per hour. He’s a one percenter as this is an insanely high wage. The caveat being that he’s periodically “laid off” by his employer when business is slow. He made 28k last year and is the envy of most of our friends who earn their living cooking.

Now, onto this week’s batch of Austin Texas food service industry jobs

Brand new, not opened just yet, Hill’s BBQ over on Steck is looking for workers. Pay ranges from $7.25 – $12 per hour. http://austin.craigslist.org/fbh/3202406173.html

Probably already filled but Franklin BBQ is looking for a prep cook/fire tender! With the giant duffel bags of cash rolling through that register one imagines the pay would be phenomenal and Aaron Franklin would be your boss. http://austin.craigslist.org/fbh/3188364094.html

Are you a bartender who salivates at pulling in 7k a year for full time work? Take it away”anonymous”: “I am looking for an honest, reliable, self starter that isn’t afraid of a challenge.” http://austin.craigslist.org/fbh/3201206754.html

Job fair at Starbucks! A buddy of mine’s wife just got a gm slot at a rural Starbucks and she’s happy as a clam. Claims that it’s the best gm gig she’s ever had. She even gets free coffee! http://austin.craigslist.org/fbh/3198945846.html

Barback for anonymous craft cocktail bar. Ad runs regularly as this gig apparently is a “chew em up and spit em out” sort of thing. Good luck http://austin.craigslist.org/fbh/3190375680.html

Austin’s booming y’all. Hope everybody finds their dream job.
