    Just got a new job.....

    Yes turnover is a part of everyday life in this business, but i look at it like this. In a lot of instances, you are dealing with less than highly educated individuals, many of them under the influence of one or more substances. A little extra stress, and the promise of a few cents more down...

    A question of insurance.

    My advise, if you want to cook with full benefits, is to get a full-time job with either a chain resaurant or a large hotel chain. Both would offer health insurance, plus usually some other extra's to make you feel good about working there. As far as if you should/shouldn't have health...

    Any Hyatt alumni out there?

    I worked at the Hyatt Regency in Cincinnati from 97 to 01. I learned alot there but didn't really like it. I didn't feel that the management really cared about the associates under them. I did enjoy the benefits though. We stayed at the Grand Cypress for our honeymoon.
