It’s that time of the year where a lot of people in the restaurant industry start assessing their current situation. There are a lot of question one asks oneself but the predominate question is “Am I underpaid for what I do?” This particular question and topic can be debated till the end of time. Ultimately, you have to be truthful to yourself and answer these questions:

1. Did I give it my all at all times?
2. Have I been a team player and have always been there to help others?
3. Am I willing to go the extra mile when there are things to be accomplished?
4. Have I demonstrated accountability for my own development?
5. For Managers & Chefs, have you consistently provided the best guidance and mentorship for your staff?
6. Is there someone that’s currently mentoring me from the company/restaurant?
7. Have I took it upon myself to find the right mentor whether in the company or outside?

If you can answer positively to most of these questions yet you feel that you are still not getting what you need for your career development, then maybe it’s time to begin the search. However, if you can honestly say that you need to take more accountability for your development and haven’t given it your all, maybe you need to reconsider the search. Remember that the grass is not always greener on the other side. In this current economy, you need to be absolutely clear of your intentions before you act on your impulse.
