    so i got laid off from my job...and i'm a student so i need to rustle up something fast...just wondering if any of you out there know any restaurants who are looking for either cooks or waitresses.

    i've worked at north 44, which is one of the best in the city...so i'm fully equipped and able and capable to handle long shifts, bust my ass during service...and i'm FUN TO WORK WITH!

    any suggestions would be mightily appreciated.

    the docks is having a job fair either this weekend or next...not sure, check their site.

    also Richtree Foods, the company that owns movenpick, is getting ready to open a new restuarant in the north part of toronto. might want to talk to them.

    I've worked at the Dock's for 3 years.. 2 of which I was in the kitchen. Robin is the Head Chef, and a great friend. He's the nicest guy. He's really easy going, not looking over you shoulder stressing you out all the time. He's great with going home early and coming in late. It's hard not to take adventage of him. Plus, he's HUMUNGOUS and would lift me up and twirl me around like a rag doll. lots of fun :) I love working with young people. plus there's an insnane amount of good looking people to stare at all day!

    email me and I'll give you his #. the Dock's always needs staff! and honestly I was a we bit sad leaving last year because I've had a lot of fun there.. (must resist going back)

    I worked for Richtree full time during one summer, and part time during the following school year.

    I'm not sure what it's like working in one of their restaurants, as I worked at one of those Take me! Marchés (Yonge & Yonge Blvd and the one across from the Guvernment).

    I tend to be a lil bit too idealistic in my expectations, and maybe I

    1. was expecting too much
    2. was naive about the food service industry


    - there was a fairly high staff turnover
    - people didn't show up for their shifts, leaving me to work 14 hour days on several occasions
    - pay started at minimum wage, with raises far far in the future (though, i struck a deal with my manager and the low wage issue was no longer an issue :) )
    - the annoying music that is looped and looped and looped ( i sewr, each morning i was preparing salads to the exact same song)

    the perks?

    1. each employee's birthday is considered a paid holiday
    2. you can eat marché food at a fraction of the cost (something like $0.34 per hour you work is taken off for the cost of food).
    3. the staff generally are a lot of fun to work with

    I'd also imagine that it might be easier looking for a job in the foodservice industry closer to the summer, as thats when tourism picks up.

    Another thing to consider (for the summer) is cheffing at a resort or summer camp. I've done that for a few summers and had loads of fun.

    Good luck,

    Swan Restaurant is currently seeking kitchen help, more specifically the Chef position has become future-vacant.

    Wait a minute, I'm the Chef at Swan!



    PS Anyone want to give an intelligent, handsome, cooperative, thoughtful, sexy, arrogant, egotistical, hard-working, quick-learning, fast-talking ex-Chef a break in a new industry? Hijacking a job search thread with my own job search! WheE! How crass!
