Every school district has a different organizational structure and hiring practices. In some districts, the food services department is responsible for all the hiring steps for their department, from developing job descriptions to posting, interviewing, testing, and hiring. However, others have little control over hiring procedures or have little say in who ultimately is hired to their teams. In most cases, food service staffing involves a combination of support from human resources (HR) and food services departments.
This HR resource has guides and charts that can help schools or districts map out their professional standards, organizational structure, staff development, union requirements, and performance evaluation.
