I had my first cook job 2016. I lasted 2 months as a line cook in a casual but quite famous NYC Ukrainian Restaurant. Then I had a surgery that put me out of any physical job for 2 months. By that time I didn't have a job with the Restaurant anymore. Now I got a call from a famous NYC French restaurant. They want to hire me as an entry position, prep, $12/hour. It's really a high end place. $12 is not enough to make a living in NYC, but I hope against hope I will get more. The Chef made a really nice impression on me, like the guy I could respect, and all that. No BS, seemed very just job oriented. He offered me a job in prep. He said, "You seem to be an intelligent guy, I just want you to watch the guys" . Not sure what he meant. Anyway, I am so perplexed, I am not making enough money this month in my sales job. Cooking has been a dream for me all my life (50 years?!?!?). I still need to call the chef to put me on schedule, etc. Any tips!
