    Is working part time ever a bad thing?

    to follow up with this company if anyone was interested i just recieved my paycheck from them. looked at hours clocked since they didn't allow me to even clock in and out of 30 hours minimum not including my breaks only 8 hours is on the check. i think it is safe to say i dodged a bullet...

    Is working part time ever a bad thing?

    sadly after 2 days of BS run arounds from the manager i left. felt it was very unprofessional of them to hire me "part time" yet not allowed to clock in or not given a set schedule even when asked. the day after my 2nd day was my day off and was told the manager would put my schedule up the next...

    Have you ever made sushi/sushi chef?

    both. the menu is huge for just me to be making unlike a line cook where im doing maybe 6-8 dishes here im expected to know over 20 different rolls and whats in them and how they are to be plated. my mistakes are getting lesser and lesser every day but at the same time we have items that are on...

    Have you ever made sushi/sushi chef?

    i've been working in the field for about 5 years now as a line cook but just recently i took the opportunity to learn how to make sushi. i must say this is not what i expected. it's not like a high end sushi restaurant it's a more mellow easier version. making the rice is made by machine...

    true i do need to step my interview game up and start asking more often for walk throughs. thats never been an issue though usually they offer me a walk through. I should start to ask if i can view how they work as well for a few minutes. any other suggestions? i started doubting myself...

    Ever had a job with little to no standards?

    I've gone through 4 jobs in the past 2 months all of them with horrible standards. i am wondering if this is normal or what exactly in the world is going through some peoples minds? just an example one of these restaurants almost killed a customer with a nut allergy after i told the sous chef...

    What do you expect on a first day? Employee's/Chefs

    I start a new job tomorrow for a family owned restaurant. Every restaurant i have worked for it's always different. sometimes it's great first day/week not too busy but not too slow, extremely busy at times, people train me and don't expect much, sometimes nobody even trains me at all they...

    Does this actually happen or they just trying to scare me?

    not really sure why turn over is high but im guessing they used to hire people who couldn't handle the work flow and got stressed out. btw why do you say it's a job and not a career opportunity? or like what do you mean by that? i see everything as both a job and a career opportunity in some...

    What can i expect from a cooking test and knife test?

    just had my knife test today. it was pretty basic though. all they had me do was slice some onions sadly it wasn't perfect think the knife they gave me wasn't sharp so when i got towards the end it kind of just slid off. so the tops were thin but the bottoms were thick. knife seemed to struggle...

    What can i expect from a cooking test and knife test?

    that is what she told me "cooking test" but when i do think about it then yea it makes no sense to have an actually cooking test for this position as i am not applying for a sous chef or head chef position. it probably is just like a stage basically.

    What can i expect from a cooking test and knife test?

    yea i have never had to do a cooking test and this is a line cook position only so it makes no sense. im even more worried now that i might have to cook family meal lol. i think it will be a stage but not a full stage maybe like an hour or 2 but they just call it a cooking test. they serve fresh...

    What can i expect from a cooking test and knife test?

    I have 2 interviews this week. one has just a knife test the other has both a knife and cooking test. never really worked for any companies that did a knife/cooking test before and im not sure what to expect. i am guessing the knife tests are basically just simple cuts such as dicing a onion...

    What should i bring to interview?

    thanks for sharing i am going to try it this way because the usual way is very difficult for me. my knife always gets wedged between the layers and im not extremely great with getting perfect cuts so they are off especially when i have to cut sideways and can't really tell. i've cutting tomatoes...

    What should i bring to interview?

    thanks for all the help. i will definitely be practicing dicing especially on an onion. thats probably where my basic knife skills lack. they are not perfect dices nor do i dice them very fast as once i start cutting them side ways it gets hard for me to keep the pieces together without pushing...

    What should i bring to interview?

    thanks for the advice. they will be providing the coat. as for the interview do you recommend a totally different set of clothes or just basically wear what i would wear to work excluding the shirt? i might just try that as i don't want to lug around all these clothes/shoes plus in the kitchen...
