    You would have to pay me $120 an hour to go back into restaurant kitchens and clean ice machines and work on prep tables.

    The best news I ever heard in the past decade was the day I found out that our service provider no longer had that contract.

    I shoot for $100 and typically have minimal monthly food cost.

    Must be willing to travel.

    I wonder what the compensation is when you travel?
    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    It usually means you can travel a couple of hours to get to the job you have to perform, and you're driving that truck for free..... and then when you drive back from that job, you're driving that truck for free...... so in 12 hours you can make 8 hours. That is usually how that works with these companies.

    In all fairness..... maybe this guy is different.

    I was wondering if that implied overnight. Where I currently work they changed the rules for travel quite recently, which means you could end up sitting in traffic for 2 or 3 hours with no pay. I told the boss that if it was not worth paying for the travel, then the job must not be worth doing. He said he would pay for my travel, probably because he knows I was serious about what I said, plus I do bring a lot more to the table than anyone else.

    You eat the food in the kitchens you work in? I always lose my appetite when I do kitchen refrigeration. Fortunately I rarely have to do it.

    Oh yeah, especially the prime rib and filet mignon. Here's one from a high-end cafe. I never had something so exquisite. Probably a $25 breakfast.
