Ideal candidates should have a love of coffee and/or craft beer or be an overall food and drink enthusiast and have a passion for delivering great customer service. Our enthusiastic team is important to us and we show our appreciation by paying over market wages, offering benefits, sick days and feeding them while on shift. We dislike wage disparity based on tipping practices therefore we discourage tipping (all tips left are donated to local charities) as RUST CITY BREWERY is a profit share – that means a percentage of profits goes to each co-worker.
