He offers a salary of 2,400 euros, this restaurateur receives hundreds of applications

“Well, this summer, we obviously won’t have any pizzas… Even a permanent contract at €2,400 net monthly + all the hours worked, 2 days off + accommodation. We don’t even have a serious application, it’s is disheartening.” A rant passed by Joris Bauchais, owner of the restaurant Le Prose located in La Grande Motte (Hérault) who moved the lines. Because as explained , until then, the job offer of the restaurant owner and his wife had remained a dead letter. In three weeks, not a single response despite an offer already posted on social networks and the specialized site Indeed.

The boss speaks of “desertion from the profession” because of a pandemic which has “created a certain insecurity”.

Not to mention the new expectations of employees, the “pleasure of being at home in the evening with the family” and therefore the working conditions which have changed. At the head of a second, smaller restaurant, he employs 24 people at Prose and serves an average of 50 covers at lunchtime and 80 in the evening. He must also do with the requirement of customers who are always looking for quality, but are, according to him, “not ready to pay more” in order to “pay employees better”. By the end of the month, Le Prose will still have a new pizza maker, and pizza customers this summer.
