  • Apple Looking to Hire Pizza Chef in Sacramento, Seriously



    Life as an Apple employee is taxing, rewarding, and in some cases potentially demeaning. But, it’s no secret Apple usually gets its pick of the litter when it comes to sought after talent. Which means they’re likely going to get one hell of a pizza cook if their latest job listing is real.

    That’s right Apple is currently looking to hire a pizza cook in Sacramento, Ca. The position is likely needed to fill a vacancy at the local call center cafeteria, but the qualifications mean Apple’s employees are in for some seriously good pies.

    Apple wants a pizza cook with “extensive experience making pizza dough from scratch” with “at least 2-4 years of experience working a high volume wood burning pizza oven featuring thin crust, Neapolitan style pizza.” Yea, pretty good pizza, but that means New York Style, and Chicago deep dish chefs need not apply.

    Also, parts of the description lead me to believe this pizza chef may be cooking in an open kitchen environment as the ability to “portion and toss the dough” and the “ability to hand stretch the pizza (without using a rolling pin) is required. This means the chef might be putting on a little show in addition to turning out above average cafeteria food.

      Let's just hope the pizza stays in 1 piece after being tossed about...

      Wouldn't want to know what price apple would charge for a replacement!

      Considering Apple's 'double down on secrecy' and keeping employees work conversations on site, this may be a trial run to see how to enhance the employee's work experience and keep them within the company. They may be trying to build cafeterias and lunchrooms with popular options to keep employees nearby rather than out in the public potentially leaking out info (intentional or accidental) or move between jobs.

      If an employer give its employees something few similar companies offer, then they will see staying with the company has advantages. Even if it is a 'premium' pizza place inside the office, that might be what Apple is doing.

      That pizza would be pretty easy to make by hand. I have to slap out pizza ever day and I bet I could do that easily.

      One problem. You have to pay Apple an "employee tax" to work there. You make $1.50 an hour after deductions.

      That would be cool but wish they sell it to costumes or give it to them as a gift not only for employees
