Thanks Sam, I have the cook's curse...I can't go out to eat in town, I know who's cooking! :fear:

Congrats on the new job, it sounds a bit more secure than what you have and medical benefits are priceless. :clap:

Hospital food service, may I suggest a shiny new can opener and some good gloves to protect your fingers while pushing the microwave buttons. :P

I'm glad you got the job you'd been trying to get. 12 hours is a long day, but 3 days sounds great! Do the days switch every week?

My last boss would not give a good reference to anyone while they worked there, but does sometimes after you left. His way of not losing good employees. So I didnt bother giving them a notice either, LOL

Thanks pal, 12 hours with a 30 and 2 fifteens is much better than 8 or 9 hrs and trying to sneak in a break when it's quiet.

The latest in hospital food, at least where I worked, was to be more like a restaurant -- order whatever you wanted, whenever you were hungry, and it was cooked to order for you. Maybe that's why they want MA with his restaurant cooking skills. :idea: Of course if the doctor said "liquids only", the kitchen would not send up steak and potatoes even if you asked. :(

You may be right, the last question during my interview was, "what your favorite dish?, and I told them baked stuffed haddock with crabmeat stuffing topped with lobster newburg sauce, and the 2 woman moaned! :eek2:

I can go up to the lab and ask the phlebotomist for a couple tubes of liquid steak and potato!

Thanks, the training period will be 4 x 8's for a week or so and then I'll get a schedule. Technically I'm hired as p/t but a friend of mine got hired last yr and has worked 3 or 4 twelve hour days a week. This is vacation season followed by hunting season.

Thanks Rob...now stay out of the hospital! It seems like every yr one person will finish there dinner and then show the waitress a hair on their plate and expect reparations, you should see the look on their faces when I come out of the kitchen...I'm as hairy as a bowling ball. toothy

I've never had one of those.

But, my BIL has over 1 year of personal time saved up where he works.
