Because "fairness" has nothing to do with pay, IMHO. Performance has a lot to do with pay! The bottom line? The $$$ left by customers is the major factor in determining pay! Unless you are working for the government, a charity, or something similar, you are not being paid out of the "goodness" of the boss.
He's actually not the chef, the kitchen currenly does not have an exec. chef...he is just the manager.
Excuse me? What do you think a chef is, if not a manager? And, I'm not familiar with any single kitchen with an Executive Chef, a Chef yes. For me, an Executive Chef is responsible for multiple kitchens. In my mind, a chef IS a manager who happens to be able to cookl
I come across very passive and quiet and I don't want him to think he can just pay me little
under "you're training" when i'd say after the first week I was left alone....
Now I'm going to be rather brusk here, you've been there one week and you know better than the manager whether your training is over, is that correct? From what you posted, you do not even know how long you were to be trained or, it sounds like, what the goal of the training is or what you will be paid after training.
I think you need to ask the manager
- a) how you are doing, and
- b) how long should you expect to be trained, and
- c) what is the goal of the training
- d) how will you know when you will be considered trained?
You mentioned doing the same work or better, in whose opinion?
- Or the manager's?
- Who is the earliest one to work?
- Who is the last to leave?
My apologies, however, I'm a little bit old school. I do not believe that a new hire with a week under their belt is in any position to tell the Chef/Manager how the operation should be run or what someone should be paid.
Now, perhaps I'm mistaken and you actually have 2 years or more experience in a job covering the stations you listed, then the discussion needs to be refocused.
