The food service industry is a very popular field that provides a variety of services to many different customers. It is important for all glasses, dishes, and silverware to be cleaned and sanitized before serving food and beverages to customers. Dishwashers are workers that clean and sanitize a variety of kitchen equipment.


Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

What does a dishwasher do?

Dishwashers clean and sanitize dishes, glasses, silverware, and kitchen equipment to be used to serve the public. They receive the dishes from other food service workers and they remove excess food, sort, and organize the dishes and either wash them by hand or load them into dishwashing machines. They remove the clean dishes and put them in convenient places for cooks, servers, and other staff. In large food service establishments there may be many dishwashers with each one performing one or two tasks. Dishwashers are also responsible for completing other cleaning tasks such as wiping down sinks, cabinets, and countertops, taking out the trash, and sweeping and mopping floors. Sometimes dishwashers assist with clearing tables.

What kind of training does a dishwasher need?

There are typically no minimum education requirements for dishwashers, but many employers prefer applicants with at least a high school diploma. Many employers hire dishwashers that are currently attending high school. Dishwashers that wish to work for upscale food establishments often need previous experience. Most dishwashers learn their skills through on the job training. They learn the necessary policies, expectations, and procedures as well as proper sanitation practices. Many employers provide instructional booklets, employee handbooks, and audiovisual presentations. Many new dishwashers start out by observing experienced workers. Some states require dishwashers to receive a health certificate that states the individual does have any communicable diseases.

What are the prospects for a career as a dishwasher?

Employment of dishwashers is expected to grow about as fast as average, increasing 12% from 2008 to 2018 (1). The growing population and expansion of the food service industry will drive job growth.

Job prospects should be excellent with keen competition for upscale food establishments. Many job openings will stem from the need to replace dishwashers that retire, transfer, or leave the field for other reasons.

How much do dishwashers make?

As of February 2010, dishwashers with less than 1 year experience earn average hourly rates between $7.11 and $8.47. Those with 1 to 4 years experience earn average hourly rates between $7.19 and $8.65 (2).

A career as a dishwasher is a great choice for people with a strong interest in food service and washing dishes for a variety of establishments. Dishwashers must have a solid understanding of the necessary cleaning and sanitation procedures of their employer. Patience, physical stamina, and ability to perform repetitive tasks are necessary characteristics. Dishwashers should have good communication skills and ability to interact with a variety of other food service workers. They must be able to work independently and as part of a team.
