PIRATE COVE RESORT, the largest and busiest waterfront dining resort on the Colorado River between Laughlin and Lake Havasu, is seeking an Executive Sous Chef for its fast paced and high-volume restaurant/bar.  This professional and experienced Sous Chef will create 5-Star Food Presentations with unique and artistic designs.  For candidates who enjoy a “private life”, note that our dinner house facility’s latest closing time is 10:00 PM.

We are looking for a detail oriented and positive team player with exceptional guest service skills.  You must have a passion for delivering an unprecedented guest experience through hospitality and the highest standards of food quality.  The environment is upbeat, fun and our customers appreciate life on the river and/or off-roading on the adjacent 3,200 miles of BLM trails.

Bring us your Creativity and Award-Winning Culinary Artistry!

Position requires:

  • 7+ years of Executive or Sous Chef experience.
  • Flexible schedule including availability some evenings, weekends and holidays.  (Again, Pirate Cove is not a nightclub; we serve lunch and dinner and close no later than 10:00 PM.)

  • Excellent record of kitchen and staff management.
  • Accuracy and speed in handling emergency situations and providing solutions.
