Hi all, Around 3 months ago I started working at a very prestigious restaurant in my city. At first, I was very excited about it, and was enamored with the idea of working there. After I began working there though, I began to hate my job. The shifts ended up being longer than I expected.....Almost always 14 hours. All the cooks get "Shift Pay" , which means that I only clear 80 dollars per shift. I end up working 4 days a week, putting in around 50-55 hours, and clear 320 dollars. Ok , so money is just one thing, and does not really matter that much if you are learning a lot. The thing is, the job is also always incredibly stressful. From the moment I walk in the door, I have to move as fast as I can to get all my prep done before service (same with the rest of the line). The restaurant has 0 prep cooks, and everyone on the line ends up doing prep within the first hour of service anyway, which can lead to a really bad service. The kitchen has had an incredible amount of turnover in the last year. Aside from the sous chefs, the senior line cook has only been there for 5 months.....I am next in line. Honestly, I really want to quit, even though I have only been there for such a short time. I am miserable, and I feel that cooking should be hard work, but also enjoyable to some extent. Has anyone ever been in a similar position? What would you do if you were in my shoes?
