Kristoffer’s Answer

You will most likely be off on Monday’s and Tuesdays and will work Wednesday through Sunday from the morning until they close. To be honest it is rough and not easy but one thing is that if you truly love it you will get excited to go back to work. I was at one point working 16 hour days in Europe and had to walk over a mile to work and back everyday but every morning that I woke up I was so excited to get back in the kitchen and do exactly what I love!

Julianne’s Answer

That depends on the restaurant and varies with each one. Inquire within. Ask the head or Executive Chef to answer this question for you.

Thank you comment icon Don’t not ask the chef. This will tell them right away that you do not have what it takes to put the work in. Kristoffer Leyton

Mansi’s Answer

Work Schedules
Most chefs and head cooks work full time, including early mornings, late evenings, weekends, and holidays. Many chefs and head cooks work more than 40 hours a week.
Chefs and cooks are notorious for working between 50 and 70 hours per week, oftentimes on weekends, evenings, and for up to 12 hours per day.
