Extreme environmental demands on the kitchen associate are few.  During warm seasons of the year, back-of-the-house staff may be working in kitchen that may reach 110º.  The need to keep food at a minimum of 140º, coupled with extreme heat of some parts of the country cause this interior condition to occur. 

The only chemicals involved in this job are of the cleaning variety.  Training is given as to the appropriate use of these cleaning agents.  Task descriptions are available which give detailed instructions for cleaning, the use of chemicals for cleaning and maintaining health and sanitation standards.

During a typical work shift, back-of-the-house staff do not have direct guest contact.  Kitchen associates need to be highly autonomous within their specific job functions, but have extensive interaction with co-works to accomplish work -- must be able to be a team player.  Meal periods during a shift may be very stressful and sometimes frustrating.
