I know this is a personal and touchy subject..But I just started at a med priced hotel and have more than proven myself. The response from banquet quests are that they know there is a new chef and they better try and keep him/her. Well I just got a raise to 8.75. I went into this knowing there is not alot of money here. But I expected more. I do not have a management position yet and that is my goal. The food I see going out from the line drives me crazy. My position now is soley banquets, and I do them alone. They did tell me to start looking for some bodies to start working under me as the busy season is getting ready to start up. This place is 5 min from my home which is a big plus to me, and I really like all of the people I work with. Believe it or not ...there is no or very little backstabbing or gossiping....I think????? It's a wonderful place to work, I just need to know what I'm worth..Is there a .com where i can get this info? Thanks..
