    My chef that I had worked with for 2 years recently left to take a private chef position for a software company. I went and helped him with their Christmas party and met everyone.... Well... They're expanding and offered me a job. Nearly $3 more an hour, full benefits, weekdays only from 8am-4pm. The only downfall is that it's in Salt Lake, which is a 35 minute drive... But they pay gas, so I don't care

    I'll still work the restaurant a couple days a week, but I'm getting out of the trenches!

    Congratulations my friend!

    A 35 min. drive is nothing for a good job.Been driving for over one hour one way most of my working years.

    It will be different seeing as now I can be from my house to work in less than 4 minutes, but that's hardly a negative lol

    Ha 35 minutes? Lucky! I went from a job that took 10 mins to one that takes 75. It's all worth it though. Congrats.
