being happily un-employed(retired at43?) i entered less than 20, when i was working it was always 40-50 hrs. per week. sometimes more, as when i was working 2 jobs about 4 years ago- then it was 57-60 hrs. and i was very tired and extremely
_itchy. talk about burn out.
I very happily hit 40-60. One of the few good things about the Country Club is that I do get to work a pretty decent schedule. It may be 6 days most weeks but I still manage to average only 45-52 hours per week. Can't say that about some of the high end places I worked at, where 60-70+ hours per week was not uncommon. Heck, during one opening, I pulled over 30 days straight and averaged 85+ hours each week. The sick thing is that part of me misses that!! The other part says 'never again!!!'
well hmm seeing as i am merely a line cook and it is a new business i do 35+ (this is my second week in so i can't average). I work the grill closing due to my ability under pressure, as time goes and i get back into the swing of things i expect to be in the kitchen at least 15 hours per day (between culinary school, home and work) every day...i think for most people in the industry that i have met it is a labor of pure love
