I am a sous chef at a fine dining restaurant and work well over 40 hours in four days. Starting Thursday evening to Sunday nite. Yeah, I am tired after that but love the next 3 days off.
On Tues and Thurs I drive 1.5 hours to attend a cooking class at the four seasons offered by the local community college. One the first class the head of the culinary program came in and asked for volunteers for function. Everyone offered but me. Then the next class the chef asked if anyone would help at his restaurant, The Grainery. Once again everyone raised their hands.
I am sorry but I don't need it on my resume. I am tired already from work and I don't live in town but drive 3 hours for each class.
So, I am being singled out for not wanting to help.
Do you offer your services for free? Do you volunteer? I think I am just going to pull chef aside and explain that I am a work sous and tired already.
