Careers

At Hillstone, the uncompromising quality of our food, service, art, and architecture has set the standard in the industry for nearly three decades. Our secret? A progressive management culture unlike any in our industry, in which the craft of managing and developing people is as important as our culinary arts itself. From our rigorous four month training program to ongoing professional development, the challenges for managers at Hillstone never cease.

Restaurant Management

The journey begins in one of our restaurants. Over the course of four months, each candidate will receive hands-on experience as a server, bartender, greeter, prep/line chef, and more. Interspersed with these duties are frequent manager shifts, including work with our restaurant accountant, Culinary Manager and General Manager. Finally, manager trainees will complete a series of advanced projects in strategic areas including operations, systems, human resources and building sales.

Culinary Management

Our back-of-the-house programs substitute more in-depth chef training for front-of-the-house responsibility. Potential Culinary Managers at Hillstone generally pursue one of two tracks: one which leads to detailed operating responsibilities for a particular restaurant, and the other which culminates in an Executive Chef role. While the latter tends to attract candidates with formal culinary education, such training is not required for consideration. Hillstone welcomes candidates with culinary degrees who would prefer to pursue training with a front-of-house emphasis.

Summer Internships

Hillstone offers a limited number of summer internships to exceptional candidates currently enrolled in an accredited undergraduate institution. The three-month paid program is essentially a miniature version of our management training program, in which the intern will work through the multiple functions of the restaurant. The internship also includes a summer-long project, jointly created between the intern and General Manager. Admission is highly selective, targeting candidates who want to get a jump-start on their careers with Hillstone.
