Why Ohio Living is different

  • Better schedules. Unlike restaurant work, we are typically done by 8pm. You’ll love not having to work until 2am closing times.
  • A feel-good role. Meals are important to everyone and you’ll be the bearer of great food. That allows you to make connections with residents and patients, becoming a welcome and enjoyable part of their days. It’s rewarding for you, too.
  • Fun challenges. We have a dining room with tablecloths and servers, and we also deliver meals to rooms. We cook for everything from formal galas to barbeques and taco bars. We invite our residents to take part in cooking classes. You’ll find every day unique – and uniquely enjoyable.
  • Plenty to learn. You’ll learn a lot from our amazing chefs and cooks. You can help with menus and participate in our annual culinary competition. We bring in experts to train you and offer online courses from Rouxbe. And you’ll have room to move up into leadership roles if you desire.
  • Attractive pay and benefits. We offer everything you expect, plus a retirement plan, paid time off, education assistance, pay advances up to $500, recognition programs and free meals.
