BBQ Joint Job Board - NATIONWIDE LIST - These BBQ Spots are Hiring Staff Right Now - Updated 4/27

Barbecue joints are hiring all over this country for almost every position. Below is a list of BBQ spots with openings and how to apply. I will continue to update this twice a week at the very least. I have a separate list HERE for Texas BBQ joints because it was too numerous to put below.

Arthur Bryant's Barbeque - Multiple Kansas City Locations

  • We are always accepting applications. We stay pretty well staffed, but I will always hire an A team type of staff member. I also have an extended restaurant tree, so some staff will take advantage and use us as a stepping stone. I have multiple former staff members who have moved into management with corporations or better paying positions elsewhere. The only way to apply is to come into the restaurant and get an application. I like to see people first before I set an interview. The positions within the restaurant are Pitmaster (handle all of our meats), Cashier, Busser, Slicer (maybe the toughest position in any restaurant), and Utility (they wash dishes along with cut and blanch our fries).
