Hi everyone! I’ve just created my account for this post. I have some questions to ask chefs or anyone could answer my questions. First of all, I’d like to tell my information. I’m 28 yrs and graduated from Business school and worked in retail business for a while. I had a chance to continue my master in the U.S. I was helping my family running restaurant business in Boston for a year and I realized that I wanted to work in the kitchen, being a cook. Then I went to Culinary school for A.S. Culinary arts to gain some skills and I did pretty well from my school. I know this industry is tough. Now I get paid at $14/hr in Boston and my family does not agree with me to continue my job. My family wants me to come back and work with them again as a manager since they’re expanding and need help. I will get paid at my family restaurant about $21/hr. I know myself that I still want to learn and be a cook in my heart. I try not to think about the money but I can’t. - Am I stupid or not to say No to my family? They will hire other people instead of me. But they want me so bad and wish I could come back. Any ways I can succeed from being a cook and get higher paid. - Is that really bad for$14/hr for being a line cook in Boston? Should I find a new restaurant? Now, I’m trying to find another job to prove my family but I know my skills are not professional and I don’t have work exp in the kitchen before. - My family suggested me to work as a cook in hotels. They said I would get benefits, insurance, career growth and etc. Is that better than working in the restaurants? Any suggestions or motivations? I won’t give up for being a cook but just want to know what My family and I thinking are right or wrong. Sorry for my English. Thank you. I will check every comment and I appreciate your time as well.
