Dishwasher and Prep Cook

Food is our passion - come join us!

Urban Fare is a food lover’s paradise with four award-winning stores in Vancouver’s city centre and one location in sunny Kelowna. Urban Fare is part of the Save-On-Foods family, and we were recognized as one of BC's Top Employers (2017).

Urban Fare (Alberni) is located at the prestigious Shangri-La building and is a high end grocery store that’s located on one of the most exciting streets downtown – celebrities have been seen at this store, as different productions frequently film in the area. This store prides itself in customer satisfaction and in taking care of its high-end clientele, which supports the unique gourmet products and services that they provide.

Some might see this Urban Fare as a restaurant that sells groceries on the side, and it was ranked as the #1 restaurant out of all the Urban Fares. The ambiance that the restaurant brings to the store reflects the business district it is located in, as it is always bustling and busy with its clientele of professionals, and creates constant excitement.

Currently, Urban Fare is looking for a part-time Dishwasher and Prep Cook that are able to multitask in a high-pressure and fast-paced environment at the downtown Alberni location. We're looking for a part-time Dishwasher and Prep Cook that preferably has open availability, and is free to work on evenings (from 2 pm onwards) and weekends.

Duties and responsibilities:

  • Prep work – prepping salads and different food menu items, and setting the food cases up properly.
  • Providing support to the Cook on the main line by getting the chicken out of the oven and rushing over to support customers - the ability to multitask is a must.
  • Dishwashing duties - it’s not glamorous, but it’s an important part of creating a great experience for our customers.
  • Customer service and taking care of customers – the restaurant has an open-kitchen concept.


  • A great team environment and atmosphere, where people are able to create genuine and long-lasting relationships with their colleagues.
  • A leadership team that understands their business and is supportive of the people they hire.
  • Steady hours and a steady paycheque.
  • Flexibility when it comes to scheduling, and getting schedules three weeks in advance.
  • Opportunities to grow into a management position.
  • Weekly receipt draws.
  • Christmas parties (boat cruise with live DJs) and other team building events.
  • Full-time benefits after a year (even offered to part-time employees, as long as a certain number of hours have been worked).

Some prep or cook knowledge would be desirable, but is not a requirement. As long as you can work in a team environment, are able to multitask with other people, have the ability to follow instructions, have a good work ethic, and can provide exceptional customer service, you’ll be a good fit.
