STAY AWAY

So, what do you suggest?

tour chef in Parkville, Maryland

thepoet. Bernard T, couldn't have said it better myself. Aramark is a graveyard, it's for people that graduate from culinary school and call themselves Exec. Chefs. I've studied over in Europe in 2 and 3 star restaurants, done 2 apprenticeships and culinary school. The best experience i got was studying under 4 Master Chefs, both European, and CMC's. That's were you're going to get your credentials. Poet, just make sure you have a very, very strong classical foundation before applying for certain positions. The last thing you want to do is walk into a position and nice salary, and end up getting fired in a matter of months. Then you stand to get blackballed very easily. Believe me when I say that it's a very small network, and it stretches around the globe. That network is the one u want to be in. It's the one with 5 star 5 diamond ratings, Michelin stars, and Private clubs. So just be sure that "Executive Chef" title that may have been held previously can apply in that realm. Otherwise you may want to look for an Exec. Sous position, or even a Chef De Cuisine position at a quality spot. That's how u get your foot in the door. U may want to look at joining ACF (American Culinary Federation) and acquire certifications as well if you already haven't. I hope this may help a bit.

This would be a great job if I was 25 or 30. I would love to do
this as it would let me use all my creative talents.
But, I have a large Dog [companion], and I don't think they are
allowed in this type of 'gig'. I love the cooking and the travel
aspect, wish I could interview for this position.
Thank you.

Yes these companies are a joke, first they want to pick you up dirt cheap and promise you the world. They make you work your butt off to serve bland tasteless Hospital Food as the same for all of there locations. Stay away from these 3 companies listed. Big talk no results.
