Snapchef is a leading provider of culinary staffing throughout New England. We find qualified, trained, and experienced culinary professionals for both temporary and permanent positions. This includes a full range of entry-level, mid-level and executive chefs. (We also offer executive placement services to fill permanent corporate positions.)
And we don’t just find them, we also train them. We conduct in-house skills training and evaluations of culinary professionals at each of our leading edge commercial kitchen and training facilities in Boston, Providence, Springfield and Worcester. Our unique approach to culinary training has become the industry standard.
Another reason we’re a premier culinary staffing service includes our Six Point Background Check, which helps ensure the consistency and dependability of the employees we supply.
An official background check done by a certified agency (e.g. ICORI). This professionally produced report forms the backbone of what legal issues, if any, are part of the each applicant’s past. Also, for healthcare clients (when requested), we provide complete occupational health requirements.
In addition to documenting the I-9 form for each applicant, Snapchef uses E-Verify to assure that social security numbers given are accurate and authentic.
Intensive reference checks with past employers and personal references goes a long way to get a 360-degree view of each applicant’s experience and temperament.
Each candidate is then run through the National Sex Offender Registry. This double-check ensures that each Snapchef is clear with regard to this critical issue.
We run each applicant’s name through major search engines and examine any information that might be publicly available, whether via social media networks, news articles, etc. You’d be surprised what this simple exercise can reveal about an applicant.
And finally, realizing that issues may arise AFTER employment has been established, Snapchef re-runs these key checks annually for each employee. We also contact employers regularly to monitor employee performance. We call this the “Report Card” method. It involves taking note of “red flag” issues if and when they arise. We even ask employers to assess the employee’s trustworthiness. This is where workplace etiquette, anger management issues and overall work ethic can be monitored and dealt with in real-time.
