hiring a student - a few questions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Just a few questions about hiring a culinary student:

 

1.  Are there any culinary schools near Frisco, TX?

 

2.  If my wife and I were going to hire a culinary student to prepare a bunch of meals once a week, how much should I pay them per hour?   I was considering $13-$15 per hour for a student with minimal experience (if any at all).  I don't want to insult anyone - we are a middle class family.  My wife is nursing our 9 month old and has lost too much weight.  I'm at work most of the time so we really need to hire some help.  We used to have a "mommy helper" but right now we just need someone to help prep meals.  

 

3.  Would it be appropriate to ask them to clean the dishes / kitchen when finished?  Once again, I hope I'm not offending anyone.

 

4.  Would it be ok to invite them to eat with us?  (silly question perhaps)

I know there le cordon bleu in dallas which is a culinary school. There is also an art institute and el centero community college and collins college that offers culinary programs.
I am near dfw airport and interested in baking.
I cannot answer your other questions but hope someone else here can!

I suggest that you go to the nearest culinary school to where you live and speak to a councilor.  Tell them the same story that you just told us.  I'd guess that they'd have a number of interested students for you to speak with in a week.  If not, talk/ask  about why, then go to the next closest school and try again.

I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'.
