: For hourly jobs is much better to ask the people who live in the same area as you do instead of on the internet. There's a neighborhood near me called Willow Glen. A line cook, which is significantly under a chef makes $20 an hour, starting. https://gyazo.com/1f10854b0e6c285689a27ad02aa57aa3 But also, burned down homes sell for 900K in that area... So I'd have no concept on how worth a job that pays 11.50 an hour would be. The hours seem ridiculous though. 8-2PM is 18 hours, unless you meant till 2AM, in which case, that's 6 hours. And you might not get paid for the break you take, which sucks. Oh and in general, avoid zero hour contracts. They are a scam where the company holds all the cards. Make sure you have minimum weekly hours locked down.

You might be able to get better chef jobs off the back of your experience there, but probably not too much better. You'll probably never have a chance to break into the high end kitchens without at least getting some formal classical training. You also wont learn as much about taking your craft to the next level working at a place like that, if you take joy and pride in developing your chef skills and creations. > > Even if you dont want to do high end stuff, never estimate how much you have to learn about being a chef from a top insitution. You'll be better at your job than you are now because of it and set up for greater things. > > You'll probably look back in 10 years and regret you didnt take the opportunity to learn and grow while you had it. As i mentioned before, They do not pay 100 percent. They pay 80 percent + I am qualified for 325 a month to go towards rent(I cant find a place that cheap). They also dont cover most of the fees for books and matarials. Where do I get the money for that? I really want a good education but trying to manage education and a full time job could be hard.

Don't recall seeing him post here in a while though. @OP does the college you plan to go to has any chef courses? If not, what are you going to do there?

I was planning on going to Ohio States culenary program but still undecided
: Go into culinary school if you want to be a chef.

I Really want to but, they have changed the GI bill a lot. They pay 80 percent, you get stipends for a portion of rent and they don’t pay most of the books and other expenses for materials. It would be at least 1,000 out of pocket a semester for me + rent. I don’t know how I could afford that.

The problem is, the GI Bill pays for collage but not a lot of the fees that are assoisated with books and matarials. It would still cost about 1,000 a semester at the cheapest. That I can't help you with. I'm neither a chef nor an educational finance specialist. :P

I have done all kinds of cooking in the Millitary. Also 14 dollars a hour where I live is not bad but its not great. Like it costs about 500 to get a apartment. Not a great one but its safe. I mean I get get by on 14 dollars a hour+ a little overtime here and there I am guessing but I wont be living a great life style.

: Since none of us are likely professional chefs, [here are some of their thoughts](https://www.eater.com/2011/8/4/6664997/chefs-weigh-in-is-culinary-school-worth-it). General consensus seems to be that you can definitely work your way through the kitchens without culinary school if you have interest and are good at what you do, but that if it's free or really cheap (and for you it might be) then maybe it's worth it. At the end of the day, I'd say it likely comes down to how much you need the money at the moment, since it seems like you can definitely make a career as a chef without it, especially since cooking is something that you can practice every night and weekend just as part of living. :)
