Pampered Chef: Hubby's 3rd interview

    So a little background.

    In August, my husband saw a notice for a college in our area that is hiring for a 1st, 2nd, and grill cooks. He filled out an app for each position. He got called for the 1st interview for a second cook, took his test and then got called back for the 2nd interview and found out that he is being considered for both the 1st and 2nd cook positions, because the internal canidate did not pass the test.

    On Friday (mind you we gave up on hearing from them) he received a call to come back for a 3rd interview and skills test. That will take place Tuesday (10-20) at 7 am for 3-4 hours. We have no idea what the skills test will be. He may have to cut meat/chicken, make stock, sauces or something else, show his knife skills, id meat cuts.

    He has been studing his Professional Chef book to make sure he knows stuff. I know he knows it.

    As long has he does well tomorrow, we think he will get the job, the only things left after tomorrow will be the drug test, phsycle, and reference check.

    I am asking for prayer that he does well tomorrow, that one of these positions is for him and that the next step in the process won't take as long as the college said (they aren't planning on offering the job to someone until the last week in Oct or the first week of Nov.).

    Thank you for your prayers.

    Ok, so the interview was more of a skills test.

    The first thing that the Exec. Chef said to him what that he had to outshine the other two people because he has a really strong canadate for each position that already. Now who says that? Needless to say, that irked my husband and he almost walked out but he didn't.

    He had to name all the equipment in the kitchen, show his knive skills and then cook. The first two he said he did great.

    The cooking he did well but they did nit pick. The melon was under ripe and the soup was to salty. But they like his ideas.

    We will find out tomorrow if he gets the job.

    I bet (hope) the nitpicking is a good sign. If they weren't impressed they would have said 'ok, that was good," and that would be it.

    I'm with Sarah, if they weren't interested in him they would have just fluffed him off.

    well he got the call and was told that he did a good job but the other two out did him. They told him that if another position opens up to please apply again. It just wasn't meant to be. That's ok.

    Thank you for all your prayers. This just wasn't in God's plans.
