Get out. Get out now. The right thing is for the chef to tell the kid to shut his mouth and pay you what you are worth. You are not being respected in practice or pay. They don't deserve the respect your staying would represent.
Well first if I had my choice of catering or restaurant cook/chef Id take catering any day but that's me...
I left a job after 2 months, for different reasons--its tough to do, but I agree there's no future for you here,
only misery and more misery. Not only do I doubt you'll ever be paid what you're worth but its likely
the chef will raise the kidass and leave you where you are. What would you do then? Quit? Some things
are "inevitable Mr Anderson."/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif
So when you do leave, I would tell your Chef (if he even cares) that in your opinion the way he's running the kitchen is
foolhardy and he's heading fro trouble down the road. And that you have far too much self respect to keep your wagon
hitched to a sinking ship, skippered by a Captain who lies.
Oh and my ex employer lied to me too BTW. Luck.
Don't walk- run from that place! Sounds like a hellhole. You have to have some pride in your job to look at yourself in the mirror each morning.
This happens all the time. Employers interview folks, make all kinds of promises (with vague qualifiers) to get them to sign on, then don't deliver.
Set your rate value for yourself and stick to it from the get go. If they want you, they will negotiate.
Every employer knows how hard it is to hire and retain good employees. If you are that good, they will do what they can to keep you.
It's less expensive to pay a good employee more than to hire a bunch of "bodies" and be in a state of perpetual training with revolving door staff.
Why should you break your back and be miserable to maintain a deal that the other party has already welched on?
Go ahead and bolt, love. I surely would.
What a nice way to end it, giving a hug , good on you !
No regrets, have no regrets. Move on with your career and chuck it all up to experience .
Way to go, feels good I'm sure .
Good to hear you're feeling relieved about it all.
And even better to know we helped a bit.
From what you've said, I have no doubt your ex Chef will quickly come to regret
that last hug, when he realized the SS he opted for over you is exactly that.
I foresee a firm forehead slapping in his near future. lol
yes I sure can relate to you and what women be treated like in the kitchen.
chefs overlooking us.
we have to stand up for ourselves and fight for it.
you did the right thing, I'm proud of you and hope a better place will be there for you soon!!
take no crap!!!! and a HUG from me for you!
Good for you. The days of the misogynistic testosterone fueled kitchen need to be gone. I don't care if your reproductive organs are internal or external as long as you ain't sinking the ship.
What @petalsandcoco said. Onward and upward. The hug.... you are classy!
Sorry but to me it sounds like you have a slight attitude problem. Just because you have been in business longer then others does not mean you have the right to judge them. That's the Chefs job. The chef should teach and explain to him regarding shallots not you. Just do your job and stop worrying about everyone else. By you telling chef this ones no good and that one is this or that , remember he hired them and may take your comments to mean he doesn't know what he is doing. I suggest you quit.
Start your next position by going in doing the work assigned and not judging or complaining. If you are good be it male or femle. it will be noticed and rewarded.
There's no need to overcompensate for your sex. Don't let it put a chip on your shoulder. Some people are gay, some are black, some are short, some are so perfect it makes everyone around them feel inadequate (my own personal cross to bear) the more you point out your differences the more people will notice them. I think ED was simply pointing out this chip on your shoulder, and you became abusive and defensive.
