Do you or anyone else you know say "I, can't find a job" or " I don't like my current job"?? I have the answer, Kohala Burger and Taco is searching for you! Our business continues to grow, mostly due to the awesome group of people we have working now.  But we need to add to that team of professionals. We can no longer maintain hours, prices, service levels or menu offerings unless we can build our staff.  It is simply TOO BUSY!

What can I tell you about Kohala Burger and Taco? Mainly, that "this is a hard job"! Serving the Island's Best Burgers & Fish Tacos is difficult enough, then add to that, working to maintain service and ALOHA that has earned us the Island's Highest Yelp and Trip Advisor Ratings (feel free to check for yourself)....and finally making this job the "triple whammy" of hard work is that KBAT is among the nation's busiest locations, in sales per square foot.   

Quite honestly most people who "get in here" and actually apply are hired! But despite my honest disclosure with them about the difficulties of this job, they say no problem " I can do it" the reality is simply this. "most people are not cut out for this type of hard work" Why? Because it requires actual work, consistency and dedication to be good at anything.  While working for Kohala Burger we require that you learn our menu, learn our recipes, be on time and follow basic procedures.  Most importantly I require that you have the attitude of someone who is willing to serve. Serve or guests and serve each other.

At this point you must be asking why would anyone do all this? Lets take for starters that we offer the BEST PAY in HAWAII'S quick serve restaurant industry, PERIOD! Are you employed in quick service now? We will beat your current income! We offer flexible schedules, KBAT Crew enjoy part time or full opportunities.
