Out of the Army and now a Sous.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Landed a nice job, pay kinda sucks but with Fridays and Saturdays off... Meh... I can live with it. Now it's time to see how hard it is to get out of army sgt mode. I told chef the kitchen is his but I plan on doing everything I can to relieve him of the excess BS so he can do his thing with management and what not. I'm looking forward to the new challenge. A new menu. Scratch cooking everything for a change.... This is gonna be fun.

 

And I know you are asking yourself "How the f#@$ does the sous get Friday and Saturday off.. Well I dunno but that means I can spend more Time on my 60 Chevy!!

I was actually thinking "Why does this guy leave good pay regular employment, with solid benefits, to be a ordinary cook?"

Ummm three deployments to combats zones.  The benefits are actually better, more time off,  Yeah I'm down about $10K a year for now, but I'll make Exec with this company when I'm ready to. I just need to learn the system and get comfortable dealing with civilians again. Uhh did I say three deployments?

Methinks FlatTop developed a "lead allergy"crazy.gif or decided that 24x7 workweeks are for someone else.

 

Thank you for taking on the three deployments.

I know how you feel, I was in the Navy five years and did three deployments on-board three different aircraft carriers and now I too am a sous chef... I'm quite envious of the Friday and Saturdays off though.

this is funny because my chef is actually a former drill instructor and has been to combat atleast once. I like to think "chef, drill instructor, whats the difference?"
