The salary is good, the benefits are good and the opportunity to be creative with hand-crafted food is all there. We are struggling with candidates who want $60,000 to $70,000 k (we have a budget of $40k for someone with about 5 years of exp, 3 as a chef) or who can't work with just a sous and a dishwasher...but are accustomed to a huge brigade which obviously our business can't support.
We are 90 min. north of Boston and in a charming New England village. We have listed our position on ihirechefs.com and other online sites...any other advice on seeking out good candidates? Your feedback is sincerely appreciated!!:o
