at my new workplace, now working there since two months, pressure is being built up.
at my last workplace things were too easy, as in, had not too many responsibilities and was mainly plating the garde manger things aside from cleaning and doing dishes.
now I am pressured to start thinking again,work faster (turnover on a busy night is 90/ 120 guests in weekends), do more things at once.
its confronting, and a challenge (which I was also seeking!! working on my next degree)
I talked to my chef tonight that I felt like I was making many mistakes and not doing much right.
he told me not to think about it too much but that they want us to be independent working and things running smoothly.
and yet last week when I went home after work, I felt I was failing on many things.
nothing major…..I try to do my very best to meet the challenges, in a way its a good feeling.
in other ways, not so much as I feel I am failing too often.
how do I remember all that stuff every day again, it feels like its slipping through my fingers like sand.
I love working there and in a way I love the pressure.
I feel I have to be on the tips of my toes every day, just don't want to fail :)
how did you all handle that when you were starting out, I'm just a year into all this, and so far I have learned lots and found a very good working place now finally, with a very driven team and a good teacher…..
I'd love to read some comments and things to think about :)
