Hard job but you will learn a lot working their
Senior Cook (Former Employee) – Tofino, BC – 15 December 2017
Long hours 10-14 hours days, 5-6 days a week (longer hours in the summer), little to no breaks (kitchen life). Work gets to feel like a grind during the summer when you spend almost the same amount of time at work as outside of work.
Management is nice enough, but they need you to be at your best always or you get in their bad books.
Everyone there is passionate about food and does it for the job, not the money. It is not a place to get a job for the sake of having a job, or be their to surf.
They make you sign a 1 year contract minimum or you won't get a reference, but finding a place to live in town is hard to impossible. Most rentals open up only between October and May, and turn into AirBnB rentals during the summer and you're out of luck.
Learn a lot about food and cooking
Long hours, demanding position, minimal space to find homes in town.
