    There are no problems as long as you get your work done. The job gets stressful at times, but it's not overwhelming.

    There are no benefits if you work part time and it's difficult to get a set schedule.

    Pros

    You learn a lot
    Good for your resume

    Cons

    They sometimes want you to do so much work that it should be two people work.
    You come in and work for free 1 to 2 hours a day
    Always everything is your fault
    Staff usually not so friendly

    Advice to Management

    Pay overtime
    Get more people when needed.
    You cant just expect somebody to do 2 peoples work and yell at them when they dont finish it.

    Pros

    Free food, usually cheap stuff like rice or cornbread, but it's free.

    Cons

    All Managers are terrible people in general. They will take advantage of you, work you 70 hours a week and your checks will be impossible to calculate.

  11. It sucks your soul out

    Pros

    If you can survive this kitchen for a year you can work in any kitchen in NYC. You will learn everything you need to be a great cook and you will be forced to work to a 4 star level of perfection. You will justifiably be able to ignore interns and new hires until they make it at least 2 months, because many do not. You will be able to walk away knowing you are a better cook than 90% of cooks out there.

    Cons

    It will make you miserable. You must be able to find joy in the smallest things or you won't make it. You have to be thick skinned and have a sense of humor and be able to accept the fact that life just isn't fair. It's chaotic, crowded, nothing works, some times food doesn't get ordered and it's always your fault. You have to find a way to get it done. No excuses. DO NOT WORK HERE IF YOU AREN'T SERIOUS ABOUT BEING A CHEF - this isn't for people who like cooking. It's for serious cooks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being tough on the cook to make them great - but there should also be a reward system for being good. The intern and most senior cooks shouldn't get paid the same.
