Hello guys , Im a female and have been cooking in different restaurants for 5 years. I usually work the line, anyways..I got hired last week for prep/line cook because I needed some extra money. So my first week is over and no cooking..the GM and Chefs direct me to clean and do dishes. Im white and they are all Hispanic which I really dont care but I understand Spanish fluently. They are telling each other to make the white girl do dishes. They don't want me to even help prep. Its a good ol boys gang I guess, but my question is how long should I continue to let this go on? The manager that hired me of course doesnt have the balls to tell the Chefs anything. I am keeping a great attitude and doing a good job. Maybe too good they will keep me at utilities...? Ugh  frustrated!

Thanks  guys any advice would help..

They don't know I understand Spanish. They don't talk me they just do their own thing. There doesn't seem to be a Head Chef just Kitchen Manager which I never see him cook. I overheard the Gm tell the chef yesterday that he wants me start prepping, so he did finally tell him.  My shift went by and nobody ever even ask me to step in and help, we were even shorthanded two prep cooks called in sick. So I don't complain I just did Utilities. I was hired to cook that was the actual job description.Its going on two weeks now so I will be patient. I am making only 10.50 hourly I never ask the Chefs what they make it ,Its none of my business. Thanks

Well I am the only white girl there and the only girl that wants to cook. To top it off Im a retired Police Officer and I told the Gm not to mention it to any of the guys. I just want to cook. He did tell them when I told him not to. He said he likes that quality in me that I am confident...bla bla blah...etc. Maybe its in my personality and it shows ?? I dont know but Im not going to walk around with my tail between my legs. I am very friendly and work hard. I never take breaks and I Im a clean freak.
