How long does it take you to get into your rythem at a new restaurant

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm a young chef and worked at a seasonal resort for a year. I got into my rythem and routine after about 3 months. I just started working at a high end restaurant and was wondering if it would take me that long to get confident and back into my rythem at the new job, and how long it takes other cooks and chefs to adjust to a new job?

There is no definitive answer to that question. Too many variables! Some cooks get into the groove after only a few shifts, some take weeks, or months, and sometimes the cook doesn't fit the job (or vice versa), and it just doesn't work out at all.

 

It took you three months at a previous job? Hopefully you can shorten that adjustment time for your current job. Just put your head down and dig in, work hard, and do your best.
