How to prepare to be a dishwasher?

Category: Food Service


I just got a job working as a dishwasher at a local co-op. I know they don't have a uniform there or anything, but I was wondering if any dish washers had any advice about anything I might need to do to prepare. Should I bring latex gloves, or will my hands be OK? Also should I tie my hair back? I don't have very long hair but I'm not sure if it's part of the status quo in most kitchens.

Thank you!

Yes, you should tie your hair back. And if you don't want it smelly, think about wearing a black swim-cap...

I would wear those blue latex SafeGrip gloves all the time at work. If they provide gloves, wear them over the SafeGrip gloves. Most house painting store sell SafeGrip gloves

You should defiantly tie your hair back if you don't want it to be in your way. But it's all up to you wether or not you want to wear latex gloves or not

They should provide you gloves. Is this sink washing or putting dishes into a commercial dishwasher? Since you are not handling food, no need to tie your hair back, unless it will be in your way.
