Hmmm...each has their momemts.
Dishwashing is always hot, wet and dirty. You can finish a shift drenched yet can't wait to get to a shower. It varies on the place, size of restaurant(s), banquet facilities..but the amount of dishes can be mind numbing. Some places front of house staff can be a pain, cooks can be even worse.
Housekeeping...let's just say people can be very nasty when they can have someone else clean up after their @#$&@!.
And thanks for the answer ;)
In housekeeping you usually work alone, going from room to room.
Dishwashing is always done in a crowded kitchen with plenty of others around. Especially us grumpy old cooks.
Thanks Keith. Can I leave after the cookout on SUnday ???????????????
I have been a cook for many years but one winter I took a dishwashing job at Big Bend. Wet and dirty it was but also quite peaceful. Worked at my own pace and with my tips from the waitstaff for letting them just drop of their trays of dirty dishes and glasses I was making more than the cooks. Trust me, that does NOT happen everywhere.
I vote for dishwashing. Plus with all the usual turnover in the kitchen there is always a chance to move up to cooking, pantry or even bussing and then waiting. Thats where the big $$$$$$$'s are.
Nope. 'cause I know cooks can be pains, because I know meself too...ooo one more day
See...even people that can do many other things can still choose to deal with either of these positions....they're not all that terrible.
