Hello all,

Looking for some advice, I put my life on hold to go back and get my associates degree in 2014. I recently graduated and got an offer from the restaurant where i completed my internship. They offered me 36k to start which I think is a fair offer even though I wanted closer to 40k. Should I haggle the rate or take the offer and ask for a review in 6 months for a raise.

Thanks all

How many hours?  What position?  Wages in the area? Hourly or salary?  OT? Do you like working there?

Starting as CDP while training for sous position, hours are heavy but no ot, closed on Sunday's and all major holidays. It's dc area and I'm still not completely familiar with the average wage. I do have a friend who's going to work for the dinex group in the city and he's getting 12 an hour. I do enjoy the restaurant, chef is great, we have a garden, all of our produce and proteins are extremely local and gorgeous.

36k for a CDP sounds fair to me, especially if you aren't working overtime.

I think given this information you should take the offer, and work. 

After some time attempt to get a raise. 

I wouldn´t go of an opportunity that seems pretty good given the info you gave us. 

I also don´t know the wage in your area.
