Worker tip: When you agree to take a job that explicitly requires you to work Sundays and holidays, then don't biatch when you have to work Sundays and Holidays.

I grew up with a nurse for a mother, and holidays were always hit and miss, because you can't close down the hospitals. We adjusted dinner to be later or earlier than her shift, or celebrated on another day.

/I realize a restaurant isn't a life or death job
//but you don't get to change the rules after you agree to them

If he agreed to them. That (and the claim that all chefs work every Sunday) is the kind of thing an actual journalist would have looked into.

My parents had a bakery in the French countryside, the kind that delivered door to door. Yes, it is a thing : like a postman, she would make her round in several villages around. You stop in front of a house, sound the horn, and the customers would them come to you to buy break and pastries. She would start at 8 in the morning, and would not be done until 1PM.
Which means that, when we woke up Christmas morning, she was already gone, and we had to wait for her before opening our presents, those presents teasing us by their mere presence under the tree.
When you are a kid, 4 hours is a LONG time.

Having worked in several restaurants over the years, I can tell you that restaurants are the whiniest, biatchiest, backstsabbiest places to work.

Prima donna chefs are the worst.

Man where I work I see this all the time.  People will lie on their apps saying they can/will work any day any shift needed.  Get hired then tell the store manager I can't/won't work x days or x shifts.  Or people see our adds for help wanted, fill out a app.  Then get mad when they call in to see if they going get a interview and are told no because we need someone who can work x days and x shifts and they said they would not. I even think we have had a few people who didn't get hired or where hired and cause of this didn't pass their 80 day review and where let go threaten to sue us for it.

Ten posts in, and everyone is piling on the chef, (rightly or wrongly can't really be determined from the low information article), but no one is piling on the restaurant owner for being a digital illiterate in 2013. I don't know enough from the article to credit or discredit the chef's story, but I can tell the restaurant owner is a dumbass.

Maybe the chef was supposed to work some weekends and it ended up he had to work all of them because the owner's brother in law is a whiny biatch. I've seen that before.

Thank God I don't have to do hiring anymore.  I get to hear my wife's horror stories about it though.  When she hires, the ad clearly states the hours to be worked, and then it is covered again in the interview.  Well over half the applicants wait until the end of the interview, then pull out their own schedule, and say "THIS is when I will work, is that okay?".  No kids, when an employer tells you what the hours are, that's what the hours are.

Well, all restaurants are open on Sundays, but that doesn't mean all head chefs necessarily work on Sundays.

And we really have no idea if he had agreed to work on Sundays.  It's the restaurant business, I wouldn't be at all surprised if he'd agreed to only work one or two Sundays a month, but they scheduled him every Sunday anyway.

When I worked in radio there were no such things as holidays. I worked a lot of them, some were not so bad if I had the choice I would pick the early shift so I could get to my family as soon as I was done.

Yes, because the employer is a lord, and employees are mere serfs.  Not acceptable.

Crap like your post clearly demonstrates why we need much more powerful unions in this country.  Unions put employees and employers in a more equal negotiating position, rather than this mess where employers feel like it's somehow their right to dictate every aspect of the employment contract, or even change it at their whim.

If you're an executive or head chef, your job is to be available every shift that the restaurant is open. Otherwise, why have you as and executive or head chef? There are reasons why you get that title and you understand going in, that convienence for yourself, isn't one of them.

I'm torn if the ad was for say a 2nd shift job that everyone is working that shift to come in and say I can't start until 6pm or can start at noon would be an issue.  But if the job is part time there is no reason the employer can't be flexible.  Salaried positions should be semi flexible.

"I had been quite clear with him when he started here in October that Sundays are our busiest days of the week, and that all our chefs have to work that day."

The chef has taken to his personal page to explain his actions a bit more. "I stand by my comments whole heartedly," he said


What a duchebag chef.

Seriously?   We're not talking 60 hour work weeks, we're not talking overtime with no pay.  We're saying "the position we have available is 9-5 Monday through Friday".   Then comes the "well, I have a class on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, and Mondays are out...can we work around that?".  That's if you're lucky enough they admit that up front, and don't spring it on you later.   When you AGREE to accept a position, live up to the requirements.  Crap like your post is absolutely ludicrous.

The chef had been there less than three months and was already dictating the days he'd work? I would have fired him too.

I'm going to have to side with the restaurant on this one also, based on the low informative article.

jumac: Man where I work I see this all the time.  People will lie on their apps saying they can/will work any day any shift needed.  Get hired then tell the store manager I can't/won't work x days or x shifts.  Or people see our adds for help wanted, fill out a app.  Then get mad when they call in to see if they going get a interview and are told no because we need someone who can work x days and x shifts and they said they would not. I even think we have had a few people who didn't get hired or where hired and cause of this didn't pass their 80 day review and where let go threaten to sue us for it.


The flipside of this is someone like me, who will work any days and any hours, but I like Sundays off. In fact, I put that on applications and mention it in interviews. No Sundays. I ask for only one day off a week, and that's it. But if you insist on giving me two days off, please make it Sunday & Monday, so I can feel like I have a regular weekend. If you break that agreement, please let me know in advance, so I can make arrangements or fight you on it. I like to go rip up some trails on Sundays and have a pint or two afterwards and, even though it can be kind of crowded, that's when most of my riding buddies can go also.

I worked service industry and at a hospital for years and yes it sucks but you know full well going in that you will be working on holidays and weekends.

No, this is the thread where all of the people that have never had a job, don't know what work is, nor even a clue as to what work ethic, complain about people that have to work. You know, the ones that have no clue what it is to work, yet have an opinion on what employers aren't and what employees are entitled to. The thread where they don't realize that it's the employer that put out all of the money and takes all the risks to hire all of the employees that seem to want to tell the employer how he needs to run his business. I have no problem with this, as long as the employee wants to go ahead and puts out his own money and assume the risks that the employer does. Heck, most employers would even be more than happy to help the employee do so. I mean hell, if you want to start your own business, there are more than a lot of current employers and even outlets out there that will be more than happy to help you out. You just have to be sure that your willing to work more hours than your employees......oh wait.

Forget that....nothing to see here.

For years, I worked every weekend.  My days off were Tuesdays and Wednesdays, or Wednesdays and Thursdays.  I got used to it.  What was a real shock, was the changing to a normal M-F schedule, and trying to get anything done on my time off.  I was able to get appointments for everything and never had to worry about time off schedules.  Then, boom, asking the boss for time off for doctor appointments, or leave early because the car is in the shop, that took getting used to.
 
2013-12-17 12:18:54 PM  
With the information given, I must side with the restaurant. Being a chef can mean working 12-18 hr days, and holidays. I thought that is one reason they make more money than the other kitchen minions. I don't understand how this person could be a chef and not know this.
 
2013-12-17 12:25:57 PM  
Sorry, head chef doesn't get to take the busiest day of the week off. Nor does he get to agree upon a schedule and then go back on it a week before a major Holiday.

At my restaurant, we had to put in Thanksgiving and Christmas requests back in October so that everybody could have a chance to have their vacation and every shift would be covered. That's just how it works in restaurants.

My wife kind of switched like you and called the dentist to make an evening appointment.... July!  They could get her in during the day but she just started yesterday and doesn't want to ask off.  I'm glad I can make day appointments or when I do go my next appointment would be in 6 months so having to wait till then is not an issue.

Okay. I guess I skipped a few steps. Here goes. The article claims the chef convinced the owner to start a twitter account for the restaurant, probably with some words about increasing visibility and driving more traffic to the eatery. Good idea! The owner, allows the chef full control of the account and doesn't monitor the account, (seems likely), and gives no thought to the consequences of canning the chef while the chef owns a very public face of the restaurant.  I call dumbass on the owner, chefs behavior notwithstanding.

Yes, but the difference between the owner's dumbass move and the chef's dumbass move is the owner's dumbass move didn't put the father of a 7-month-old out of a job the week before Christmas, so I'm going to have to say the owner comes out miles ahead on this one.

With that being said(twice so far), yes, the owner should have had more control over the twitter account. Still, it didn't give the chef the right to do what he did. What he did is essentially remove his chance of having the title of head or executive chef from his resume for a long time. Actions do have consequences, and his, because he didn't want to work, are going to consequently affect him for a long time to come.

It looks like this guy got fired and went home and tweeted before the owner could disable the account.  I don't put any fault on the owner because I'm sure he has plenty of other things to do during the day (like run the business with 1 less chef) than to make sure he disabled access to a feed that as of right now has no tweets.

Fark Karma cracks me up. Farkers seem to get confused that just because they think something should happen, that it will happen. In this case, the guy has already been offered another job.

I used to work sundays to thursdays. I liked that shift anything I had to do I would do on fridays and going in on sunday was nice because I was by myself and I could work as hard (depending on how hungover I was) as I wanted to.

Kurgan Warlord: If you're an executive or head chef, your job is to be available every shift that the restaurant is open


Pretty much this.  When you're the boss, you've got to be available.  Especially, you know, on your restaurant's busiest day.

stewbert: Kurgan Warlord: a_bilge_monkey: mekkab: a_bilge_monkey: Ten posts in, and everyone is piling on the chef, (rightly or wrongly can't really be determined from the low information article), but no one is piling on the restaurant owner for being a digital illiterate in 2013. I don't know enough from the article to credit or discredit the chef's story, but I can tell the restaurant owner is a dumbass.

Because if there's one thing I look for in a Yelp review of a restaurant, it's how their twitter account is received.

Okay. I guess I skipped a few steps. Here goes. The article claims the chef convinced the owner to start a twitter account for the restaurant, probably with some words about increasing visibility and driving more traffic to the eatery. Good idea! The owner, allows the chef full control of the account and doesn't monitor the account, (seems likely), and gives no thought to the consequences of canning the chef while the chef owns a very public face of the restaurant.  I call dumbass on the owner, chefs behavior notwithstanding.

With that being said(twice so far), yes, the owner should have had more control over the twitter account. Still, it didn't give the chef the right to do what he did. What he did is essentially remove his chance of having the title of head or executive chef from his resume for a long time. Actions do have consequences, and his, because he didn't want to work, are going to consequently affect him for a long time to come. If you shiat in your own bed, you really need to be prepared to sleep in it.

Fark Karma cracks me up. Farkers seem to get confused that just because they think something should happen, that it will happen. In this case, the guy has already been offered another job. Which doesn't bother me, as I'm siding with the chef based on the limited info I have. I also don't really care enough to get more info.


So, pretty much you just came in to threadshiat and then leave.
Nice to have guys like you around.
It's a good thing that you don't really care to get more info, because if you did, you would know that we're now talking about
the little dick you have.
But, since you're not here for more info, you don't get to see this.
