    It's not hard, but it is mind numbing and underpaid. That is why almost everyone in the kitchen is a drug addict or a felon they are using as a modern slave due to parole officers being slave masters. There are much harder jobs out there, but those jobs normally pay much better so you don't get the absolute scum of society doing them.

    It really depends on the working environment. If your boss is a dick who thinks he's the next Gordon Ramsay, which is common, then yeah it's a terrible job.

      I'd like to second this and add that there are so many amateur chefs out there who think they are Gordon Ramsey. You get these losers who think their little restaurant job is the most important job in the world.

      I got out of the food industry and work in heating and cooling now. It's crazy how insane people get over their food. My new field is much less stressful and customers/coworkers are much calmer.

      this. i only worked as a barback at this upscale mexican restaurant, but the head chef got an interview on local tv highlighting the restaurant and it definitely went to his head. every night he was on, it was nothing but nonstop yelling from him. more than once when i was clearing tables, i got asked from patrons "is everything ok in the back? there's a lot of commotion going on!" and all you could say was "yeah lol that's just our head chef at work!"

    I had a ton of fun working in a crazy Los Angeles kitchen for a while. We played music and watched movies on a huge tv and surround sound. During the Saturday night craziness of like 1000+ tickets, like right in the thick of it, the Chef wold turn up the music as loud as possible and play Free Bird or some shit, its was pretty lit. Then the night ends and you do it again. Tons of hot girls of course but I mean definitely dont get into being a cook or a chef for the women lulz.

    It eventually led me to a career at a huge company as a manager making like 60k+benefits The money isent the best insane pensions and full benefits is fucking really nice security in ones life. Some of the men and women I worked with had been doing it for 30 years and just paid of their mortgage for some 2 bdrm they bought for 30k in the 90's. Now its going for 1 mil. I'm just saying my dude is a millionaire from working in a kitchen chopping fruit n shit.

    The thing about food workers and Chefs in particular is that it is a hard job and very demanding but it is also very necessary and rewarding. One wrong move can cause 10,000 people to get insanely sick etc etc. Ultimately its just eating, its what we gotta do every day to survive but any one in a large company will tell you the Chef is a pretty big deal.

    Anyways, the kitchen was chill. Great way to learn some actual responsibility without being to serious about it. There is so much history and culture surrounding our need to feed and as a cook and Chef or kitchen person you get a much better understanding of the integral role food service plays in day to day life.

    You sound like you just want to work in a kitchen to make some money and possibly just move on or whatever, and to that end, kitchen work is chill, low stress, literally just cook or clean dishes man. Listen to some music and eat some food. I loved it.

    Restaurants are literally the most useless and pointless business ever and only exist because normgroids are stupid, lazy and entitled consoomers who need a cope for why they can't get food at the store or cook for themselves at all

        Show me where I said that. You can get food at any grocery store or supermarket. Unless you have no hands, you don't have a single excuse for not cooking your own food. You're just a lazy retard and likely fat

          knew you would say something like that
          restaurants are in the business of distributing food and they do it a shitton all day every day to a shitton of people. If restaurants shut down in my area (suburban US) or any remotely populated area here, it would fuck up society tremendously because a ton of people rely on restaurants because they are lazy inept average people. They would not starve to death but it would be a shock to their system. Restaurants are anything but useless to a ton of people and you know this, there is no reason to pretend you dont know this

          saying "those people are lazy" does not undermine the point that restaurants are not useless

            Yeah like only 2 chains, and they're not even that important as Sysco or US Foods.

            Sounds like fat mutt cope. You talk as though grocery stores don't exist in suburban areas. Society is not going to collapse just because all the mcdonalds and papa johns and taco bells and mom and pop ~small businesses~ that are run by petite bourgeoisie boomergarden gnomes disappeared forever

    I did dishpit/salads & sides for two months before I was fired. It was shit. The person I worked closest too reeked of cigarette smoke and talked about how he would get in fights with his roommate through the whole shift. When I got fired it felt like I just dropped 20 pounds of bricks I've been carrying on my back.

    once you work yourself up to a good position you never have to pay for food and can make a decent amount of money but building a relationship will be hard since you're working every weekend

    i've worked the line at a "bakery" (pretty much just fast-food calzones) and i currently work entry level at a university dining hall kitchen. i spend about 20 hours a week prepping fruits and veggies, maybe 6 hours doing the dishes, and the rest of time trying to look busy or chilling outside on union breaks.

    $18.52 an hour, all i had to do was not be a degenerate and pass a drug test. plus i get a $1250 bonus after 6 months of working there. i'm pretty sure the chefs are making like $24/hour and they don't have to do shit after service. but they have to be qualified and i'm not

    Yea, it's it's own special breed of hell.
    It's one of those things that you're REALLY into, or it's not for you. There's not any middle ground there.
