StarChefs.com is conducting its third annual salary survey to find out where the food industry stands this year. The survey gathers data on salaries for all types of jobs in the foodservice industry with breakdowns for age, gender and racial groups. It will be completely anonymous, and the complete results will be available only to those who participate! Please help us shed light on these important statistics which will empower you when hiring your next employee or searching for your next job.
