Back in 2005 fresh, healthy food-to-go was hard to come by. Inspired by the fast, fresh food offerings emerging in other parts of the world, pod was created as a place where delicious, nutritious, innovative and freshly prepared food could be served fast to those looking for something a little different for breakfast or lunch…. We're pioneering a completely new kind of fast food and we care passionately about four things: INGREDIENTS HEALTH & NUTRITION PRINCIPLES PEOPLE What is working at pod like? Expect an early start, a busy environment, a fun and multicultural team, and a passion for great, healthy food! We have 4 main positions in the stores: TEAM MEMBERS: If you don't have previous experience, you'll start as a team member. Team members are the driving force of Pod, preparing the food and delivering excellent service to our customers. BARISTAS: We take coffee seriously at pod, and we either hire experienced baristas or carefully train members of our team to create our delicious coffee. ASSISTANT MANAGERS: A.M.s support the General Manager while learning how to run a shop – making sure that everything from the product quality, to the shop environment, to the service, is excellent and that the team is working well. GENERAL MANAGERS: Managers are multi-taskers, taking on the many tasks required to make a shop thrive. Supported by the Operations team, they drive their team and shop forward. Our people are important to us, so we look after them. Training is a major part of life at pod, and we offer our people intensive training from day one. As part of our commitment to excellent food, kitchen training is fundamental for all of our staff – teaching about food, flavour, and delivering it in the best possible way.. What about money? We reward our people properly. We should mention that you also get delicious free meals – and amazing parties!
