I've been at the new job for almost 3 months. I've been doing well, as I've said.
Welp, I went in yesterday to find they'd hired someone else to work with the Korean cuisine team. I knew that one of my co-workers was transferring to another location and some shifting around was going to be happening, but it now looked like I was going to be going elsewhere.
I was finishing up my tasks for the day, getting ready to scrub down my prep table when the exiting co-worker asked me how early I could come in tomorrow.
"Um, 7. Why?"
"Because you're going to be training with me tomorrow and Wednesday can be a heavy day. I like to have a little extra time to get everything ready."
I was going to be taking over her station.
It got back to our supervisors that she'd let the cat out of the bag and I talked with my manager and the executive chef. I will indeed be taking over the station that serves sandwiches, salads and some desserts. It's all cold food, except for Thursdays when we make personal pizzas. Then it's a mad house with lines around the cafe. I'll be responsible for set up, serving and breaking down. I'll do a very small amount of menu planning.
In addition to taking on more responsibility, I got a raise!
As an added positive, I got my phone fixed!
Today was a good day. I'll be going in early tomorrow to start learning what I'll be doing.
