How much should I ask for as an asst pastry chef if i'll be working 50 to 60 hours a week?
It also depends on:
-How many employees you are in charge of
-How much product you are making
-How much money you can make for the kitchen
Now for instance, like a 500 rm hotel, the pastry dept. might make all of the bread items--everything from croissants to burger buns, as well as desserts for 3-4 F&B outlets, maybe a few contracts outside of the building, and maybe a cake shop in the lobby. This job will pay well, assuming food and labour costs are in line, because you are generating a lot of money.
