Hey,I just wanted to Share my working expierence.....Cause im sorta happy!

I got a second Nighttime Job Working at a local fish and chips Place as a cashier several months back...Its a family run buisness and Soon enough I Found that I was able to move to The Kitchen Making salads...Scooping fries and whatnot....


Now i was Very happy with this because I Have NO kitchen expierence whatsoever and Even in a low end place I was quite flattered...Next Within a month After that they taught me the Deep Fryer And The Grill station's which were actually harder then they looked due to the volume of food that we produce and the lack of fryers we have....

I Should Mention also That Most of the People that get hired there are 15 to 16 year old kids and So they are EXTREMELY Flakey and Quit usually within a month or 2 So the turnover is extremely High But i have fun there and I think the owner has seen that Im a responsible Guy and have potential....

So Now i know all 3 stations and Everything in the place Very well And im Managing 2 nights a week! Im Very excited as its my first time "managing" and its really not much...I do the exact same thing but now i just have to make sure all the Little teenage kids dont **** up but its alright..

but im only getting $8.00 an hour For managing so ive asked for Nine....At my other Job i make $14.50 an hour Plus Full benefits and Free insurance So The 8.00 an hour job isnt that much...but if they dont give me a raise do you think i should look elsewhere with my new found cooking expierence or What?

Update:

I definately AM a manager! Its just a little Hole in the wall dump but its really nice the amount of responsibility and Trust that they have given Me...Even When the Other Main manager And Owner are there They just back off most of the time when i come in and let me handle the entire line.....

I also Make 9.00 an hour now and Ive only been there 3 months....the other manager guy's been there and YEAR and he Makes the same amount...

Bottom line? I never thought id be so proud being a Fry Cook but god dammit i am....I started There Thinking of it as just another Looser job i was going to hate and its become this amazing opportunity for me and Has been 1000 times more positive then id of EVER imagined...yay!

Well, minimum wage in Hawaii is $ 7.25/hour - keep that in mind, Mr. Hunt.
Otherwise, congratulations to being a manager.

Our minimum wage (California) is $ 9.00/hour, just to give you some
perspective.
