My first real job was when I was 15... working in the kitchen of a
Howard Johnson's restaurant, first as a dish washer, then a cook.
At what age did you transition to cook?
16... 4 months after I started there. I worked in that restaurant during
school months on and off all through high school and by the time I
graduated, I had done all of the jobs in the place including working the
counter and waiting tables.
During the summers I worked at the beach for the NY State Park
Commission... best job in the world.
