Well I've been working at a health foods store/cafe for the past three months. I had originally wanted to work on the line but sadly someone else got it and the only other opening they had was for a dishwasher. Well against my better judgement I accepted it and started. Well I go in the second day and the sous asks me to give him a medium dice on something like 4 or 6 onions. OK no big deal (turned out there knives are **** if you haven't seen my other posts about them) Told him that I was sorry for taking so long 10-14 minutes (now last time I did half in about 25 seconds with mine so a little time difference) But anyway fast forward about a month and change and I'm prepping something can't remember what but the head pops down and starts his prep next to me and asks me a rather strange question. He wanted to know if I was looking for a job? Now I wasn't expecting that so he asked me again, and when I asked why, he told me that point blank I was to good to be doing the **** I was currently doing. Not that I disagreed with him. Then he came right out and told me that when a spot opens up on the line that it was mine for the asking. Now I look back on my time since I've started working and I've busted my ass everyday I'm there. I don't whine about pulling dish (Tired of it? Hell yes but still I do it) I also prep when we are slow in the "tank" so I'm doing double duty (not that I care, prep makes me a happy camper) On Saturdays if I work in the morning, most of the line chefs ask me (right when I get in) to give them a hand in helping prep dishes and such also I'll occasionally sharpen one of the knives the sous uses. And all of them but 1 have asked me why the hell I'm not working the line? Sorry for going on a little but it is kind of a humbling experience when people are pulling for you in such a way. What do the rest of you guys think? Sorry if it's a little miss-mashed. If there is anything that needs ironing out just ask.
