But I was wondering, if YOU were applying for a chefs position what would be the most important questions would you ask at the interview?
Thanks very much for this comment. It help me to think about my ideals.
Tks again and pls keep posting.
One poster here, suggested that you take a tour of the kitchen and talk about all the things wrong with the place... serious numb-nut approach! Easily, the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Insault your boss before he's your boss.
The other posters (besides that one) gave good advice.
My philosophy is simple. Responsibility must equals authority. If you are going to be asked to do something than make sure you have the authority to follow it out. If your job is to hire than it must also be to fire. If they want you to cut food costs then you must write the menu. If you are being hired to for your cooking ability then you must make sure that you are not asked to count beans in the office. Very simple concept but so rarely articulated and followed.
So many hiring are done without a clear focus. They usually end up with a firing, harsh words and you know the rest. FIND OUT WHAT IS EXSPECTED OF YOU, PEROID. The rest will come in time.
