Ever get frustrated with your job and think/mutter "Well, I can always go back to waiting tables." or something along those lines? Well, not so fast. Turns out you're not the only one to have that idea, and there's some insane competition for those jobs:
Over a wonderful bottle of Borolo, my chef friend and I discussed the grand deluge of people looking for restaurant jobs. He’s the chef of a restaurant group, so he oversees a few different spots. His sports bar needed a bartender.
So he posted an ad for a bartender on Craigslist. An hour later, he received nearly four hundred responses from wannabe bartenders.
So, maybe you want to come up with a different backup plan. Food service is back-breaking work anyway, right?
