Hey hows it going guys my name is Sam, and I am currently 18 years old. About a year and a half ago, I was a line cook for Outback Steakhouse, and BJ's Brew house, not for a long time, but the reason I left is because of some insomniac issues I had, and I couldn't open anymore, so I had to leave work. After 2-3 months I really needed a job, and I didn't find a current line/prep cook job opening so I took a Barista position at Starbucks Coffee, that I had waiting for me. I have been with the company for about 12+ months, and I am a very fast-paced barista, and it is a very busy store, just like how the restaurant business mostly is. Now that I am 18, healthy, I think its time for me to start fullfilling my dreams of working my way up to becoming a Chef. What do you think is the best thing to do for me right now, should I stay with Starbucks , until I find a line cook job opening , and working my way up in the corporate world like many others do, or enroll into a culinary school. The one thing is that getting a loan is hard right now, and atleast the corporate way of working my way up is harder, but atleast your getting paid right :]. Thanks alot for the help guys, and I hope to hear from you guys soon!
