I saw this ad for a short order cook the other day it said: Grill Master? Short Order Cook? Will Train (Edison). I have a passion for cooking and am willing to learn,do you think i can get this job with no previous experience working as any kind of cook,only experience cooking at home.
I don't like Brady Quinn, other than having an awesome first name. Quinn refused to autograph my Brady Quinn inflatable doll when I saw him during his off-season job as a Denny's short order cook because he said that I didn't buy regulation underpants for the doll.
I would like to work outside the country but I have no idea what sort of jobs are out there for a recently graduated college student who hates current profession. Are there any jobs that provide training? Also what are the living expenses in London?
I used to be a computer programmer who got laid off several years ago and have been unable to get back in the industry. In the meantime I have found the love of my life -- cooking! Now I want to try to getting cooking jobs . . . nothing to fancy, just a normal cook job. Unfortunately going to school to get a certificate isn't an option and all my experience cooking is for my family, who love it btw, but I have no real professional experience. Any ideas??

Whats the difference between a cook and a short order cook?
I work at a fast food job while going to school. It's already a stressful job that is just made more stressful when you are doing your job and the persons job that is standing beside you texting as well. I was already completely stressed out running drive through by myself yesterday and we had about twenty cars and i was taking orders, cashing them out, getting their sauces, bagging their food, ect...One customer parked too far away from the window and i accidentally dropped his change in his lap, because i was too short. He started screaming at me and physically tried to punch me, he probably would have if i hadn't of been so far away. I got upset and started crying. I have never cried at work. I've been their nearly a year and I have not cried or yelled once. I asked my manager to go take care of the person the rest of the way and then when i tried to come back for the next car, he stayed at the window. It was nice that he stayed at the window, but I think the fact that I cried made him think of me as incompetent. Does anyone have any tips for what I could do next time I get upset at work so that I don't start crying again and making myself look like an idiot? (Which the cooks in the back pointed out with the way the pointed and laughed at me)
I know it is a very open ended question, but I need some suggestions. Here is a little background about me. It might take a few minutes to read.
I am a 32 year old male who stopped working for a family business that owns a franchise of 5 restaurants in March 2013. Throughout my 10 year tenure in restaurant management, I have worked in lower management and worked my way up all the way to VP of Operations for the same company. I have never worked anywhere other than a restaurant, so I am experienced in all aspects of the business with the exception of short order cooking. (my family's restaurant is a specialty restaurant chain that does not require much short order cooking.)
That lack of experience in cooking has halted my ability to succeed at a recently offered and taken restaurant management position. Though I love the restaurant business, I think it is time for a change. Restaurant management sucks the life out of most people. At 55 hours plus a week, it is difficult to have any quality of life.
I am looking for a career change, or I would possible like to go back to school. I left college after 1 year to work for my family.
here are some of my skills
Management - I have managed 16 year old teenagers to 60 year old grandmothers. I have managed hourly employees and salaried managers. I know how to train and motivate people while creating a stable work environment.I am also a very good judge of character.
Guest relations - I am very good with people. I make positive impressions and am very friendly and well spoken. I am very good a dissolving negative feelings from guests/customers.
Organization - Though i am pretty messy at home, I know how to stay organized and neat in the workplace.
Attention to detail - Many things don't get past me. If I'm educated in what I am managing, I very easily notice problems and incorrect procedures.
Numbers- I am pretty good at basic arithmetic. I can add numbers in my head fast and accurately. I can come up with percentages in my head somewhat quickly too. (very close in range) I kinda like math! :-)
Computers- I have a lot of computer skills. I learn computer programs very quickly. I can type pretty fast. I am very proficient in Microsoft Word and Excel. I have created numerous spreadsheets that have helped with the accounting at my previous job.
Writing - Though I don't consider myself to be any kind of artistic writer, I do think I am able to explain things well from a keyboard. I am sure I don't always punctuate correctly, and I make a lot of spelling mistakes, but I have always thought my writing ability was above average.
Minor Accounting - for 2 years, I held a lot of the books and managed most of the money at my previous job. I maintained multiple bank accounts, created profit and loss reports through the accounting program, and like mentioned before, I created spreadsheets in Excel to maintain proper accounting.
Minor Marketing skills - For 2 years, I managed most of the marketing at my previous job. I met with sales people and scheduled commercials, set up mailer coupons, and monitored social media marketing.
Problem Solving- I am quick and effective at solving problems within the workplace. Broken equipment, staffing issues, guest relations, staff relations, inventory issues are just a few examples.
Minor Human resources- Since i pretty much ran the company at my previous job, I had to know a lot about human resources. Sexual Harassment, FMLA, Labor laws, Hostile work environment. Ect Ect...
That sums up most of the things that I think i am good at. There are many other things I have been successful at, but I wanted to name to things that I thought would apply to most workplace skills.
I have no problem staying in management, but i want a career where I don't have to work 12 hour days, come into work at 5:00am, or stay until 3:00am. I'm not asking for a 9 to 5 Monday through Friday job either. I don't mind starting off entry level and working my way up. I am a go getter. I have no problem working hard, but I would like a career that is no more than 50 hours a week.
I have no problem going back to school before I start my new career. I am only 31 and I would have no problem getting a serving or bar tending job to supplement my income while in school. I would be pretty much starting school from scratch, so if school is your advice, should I go for AA, BA, MA???
So the Big question is, What other careers would I be good at coming from restaurant management? I am just looking for ideas. I don't expect anyone to have a definite answer.
Thank you very much for reading!
I know, it sounds like a stupid question. A relative sent me this kind of Chinese medicine but it just looks like dead twigs to me. I'm supposed to cook it in a soup.
