What kind of druggie losers do you think frequent this site? Come on, we are good people. None of us drink Mountain Dew.

blatz514: So this guy, Eddie Huang , is famous?

No clue who he is even after RTFA.


He got really famous after he sang She Bangs on American Idol.  Then he put out a record ... sorta lost track of him after that, guess he's a chef now.

FuryOfFirestorm: FTA:  "4. Style is important. "If we like your style, you're probably going to be hired. Because you're going to be representing the restaurant. There are always people who come in with a suit on during the interview, and it's just like, you clearly did not look at the restaurant website beforehand; we're definitely not going to hire you." Beyond style, understanding the restaurant's culture is equally as crucial. "Once this girl came in and said, 'Is it hip-hop all the time here? Because I find it offensive.' And I was just like, 'Well, I'm not hiring you. Why are you here?'"  "

Seriously? You and your crew are dressed like a Beastie Boys cover band and you're judging hires based on style? Dude, worry less about what your chefs are wearing and more on whether they can cook worth a damn. The damn Food Network attitude of style over substance is starting to infect restaurant chefs now, unfortunately.

FTFA: We've had some people smoke weed while on the line

I've worked in a lot of resturaunts and I've seen this on every kitchen line I've worked with - the cooks just blow it into the vent hood. The cooks that don't smoke on line smoke in the walk in cooler. The cooks that don't smoke in the walk in cooler have a little powwow out by the dumpster just before shift.

What I'm saying is, if you're eating out, there a good probability your cook was high when he cooked your meal.

  Used to do wedding catering. One night at a rental facility, watched a shiny new manager fire a dishwasher on the spot for smoking dope out by the dumpster. Then decided drug tests were a good idea for the rest of his kitchen staff. Everyone with food service experience kept telling him it was a REALLY bad idea and to just let it go. Not him. Word got around that he lost every single kitchen staff member within the week, even -BEFORE- the individual drug tests were scheduled. Literally a totally empty kitchen, they just went elsewhere. He spent a panicked two weeks watching exactly -zero- line cooks accept a job with pre-employment drug screening. Finally gave up and hired a lot of them back, no questions asked.
  Never test the kitchen staff for drugs.

If he/she was any farking good, they did. I did the vent hood, I did the walk-in, I did the laundry shed. Then the owner got me high and said," just sit on the porch so no one can see you..". OK, cool.

Contents Under Pressure: So, basically, he'll only hire hip hop fans who don't get stoned at work but he's all about diversity. Right.


But if you are even the biggest hip hop fan and show up for an interview dressed up, he won't hire you because you dressed up.

This will not stand, man. We need to start drug testing immediately.
