In anticipation of the grand opening of the new restaurant and venue space at The Machine Shop, we will be hosting a job fair, in conjunction with the Sault Community Career Centre, on Thursday, May 26th 2016 from 10am to 6pm. The job fair will be held at The Machine Shop, located at 83 Huron Street.

The Machine Shop’s new restaurant, which is slated to open its doors mid-July 2016, is looking to fill approximately 60 positions, including hosts, servers, bartenders, bussers, dishwashers, line cooks and prep cooks. Staff is required not only for the restaurant but also for banquets, conferences, weddings, concerts, and corporate and community events.

“Outgoing personalities and high energy will be the key requirement to the Front of House positions, mainly the servers, bartenders and banquet servers,” said Operations Manager, Joe Iachetta. “We want to be that place where you feel at home and are known by name.”

Glenn Dahl, who recently acted as the Hospitality and Chef Training Coordinator for the Sault College Hospitality Program, will bring his 40 years of kitchen experience to the position of Executive Chef. Said Dahl, “Love of the industry, a passion to please and a drive to excel are some of the paramount things we will be looking for in our kitchen team.”

“This will be the number one destination for all social and business gatherings, not only in Sault Ste Marie, but Northern Ontario,” said Steve Alexander, Events Marketing and Bar Manager.

The Machine Shop is equipped with a 2,000-square-foot kitchen and a 100-seat restaurant. With over 40,000 square feet of space, a heating and air conditioning system, a 24’ screen and projector and two ceiling fans, this state of the art facility can accommodate all your functions and gatherings.

Individuals interested in attending the job fair should visit the Sault Community Career Centre’s online job board at www.saultcareercentre.ca/machine-shop-job-fair/ to find out more information about the available positions.

A short consult with our specialists will give you an edge in a competitive job market. We’re here to make sure you’re presenting your best self when you sit down with an employer.”


  1. I think this is an amazing use of the historical building. It is wonderful to see additional employment opportunities for SSM, as well, it is bringing further life to our city. Good luck! I love the optimism and I will definitely be there to enjoy the atmosphere and cuisine!

  2. A 2000 sq ft kitchen (!) ….but the dining room can only seat 100? I’m confused. that would only be about….16 tables of 6 ..or more precisely 25 tables for 4. Is the restaurant going to be upstairs and the venue space remain downstairs? So many questions, so few answers. lol. Also I heard Low and Slow is moving from Gore to the now closed Fresco restaurant space.
