Hey guys, just wondering if any of you had heard about this school and what your thoughts are on it. In particular, I was looking at their 4 month culinary program.
I know VCC is the main school to go to in BC (pretty much everyone I've worked with went there) but after spending 5 years...
I've been working in restaraunts for 4 years now and am only making around 10 an hour. However, I've been talking to other cooks and they suggested hotels. The work is apparently a little harder and the hours are longer (I can't imagine hours longer then from 3-1am or 2am which is what I'm used...
I have a working interview/staging that I have to do tommorow night, and I was wondering if you have any tips/advice on what to do and wear.
They said that they'd be providing the jacket and pants, etc. but should I go there in informal clothes before I change or stick to nicer...
I was wondering if anyone else here has the problem or knows the solution to keeping your face clean while working in a kitchen. I seem to break out with pimples when I work, and they clear up when I'm not.
Any ideas on how to fix this?
How long would any of you say it would take to work you way up from say 8-10 dollars an hour into the 20 dollar range? Or is that even possible?
If it is, what sort of experience and position do you need to be in to do this?
I'm thinking of eventually moving from working in Canada to Europe, but I really don't have any idea of how to do that. Does anyone have anything that I should know, such as their job trends in the field, good places of employment, how hard it is to get in, etc etc.
Thanks in advance, and any...
I'm currently getting a Degree from SFU with a major in history right now, and was wondering how much value it will hold alongside a formal education in the culinary arts as well. In other words, will this degree help me at all in getting hired or increased pay?
