Sandwich makers, sometimes referred to as cold cooks, work with delis and restaurants. On a typical work day, they prepare sandwiches according to customers’ instructions. They ask customers what type of bread they prefer and what type of ingredients they would like. They cut meats and cheeses according to customers’ preferences and garnish sandwiches as well.

While they work in a relatively casual setting, sandwich makers need to be totally customer focused. They must follow customers’ instructions properly so that they can create sandwiches accurately. Accuracy and detail orientation are a prerequisite for this position. When you write a resume to apply for a sandwich maker position, make sure that you portray your love for preparing deli food items so that a prospective employer is intrigued enough to call you for an interview.
