How do I leave this damn industry and make it big
>>
>leave
lol
I was going to leave cooking but I ended up doing a few years retail with one of my friends. After, I wanted more money and ended up working for the kitchen in a supermarket.

It's easy work but out of 8 workers 3 of us have actual experience in a kitchen so we end up doing 90% of the real work. I swear to god if I have to train one more 40 year old who has done nothing with their life how to hold a knife or grill chicken I'll fucking kill myself.

You're already used to the long hours.
The economics are different, and by law you get 10 hours a day off (plus, usually, a full day off once a week).
After 3 or 4 years in, spending your free time studying any other career's training, you should have seen most of the country and have some.money saved up to begin your new life.

I did it because I have good work ethic mongloid. Retards in the kitchen make it harder on everyone. And they dont ever realize it either.

Lol you have been scammed by the work hard meme. NEVER EVER GO 120%, or even 100 when you are not doing it for yourself. Function on bare minimal mode. You are expecting better treatment from them while in reality you are just a number, and you haven't realized what others already did: do not give a fuck. What you'll get instead of respect is chronic back pain and headaches. Don't be the " I worked this hard guy ", nobody cares, in fact you end up as a retard who disrespected himself, because you boast about how much were others able to abuse your stupid ass.

There are negatives no matter what you do, anon. A NEET might have a monk-esque life if they can dig it, but they'll never be taken professionally seriously. A professional becomes their job and loses who they were before. In the professional world you don't deal with highschool dropout line cooks who can't keep up with the food orders at Applebees. You deal with office politics and things like that. You deal with professors who have a simultaneous superiority complex as they try to fuck students and inferiority complex to anybody who tries to make it in industry because they never made it.

I mean I'm not buy a supercar rich or anything, but I'm $55/hr with full benefits and normal work hours "rich". But it still is soul-sucking sometimes. Work is work, put minimal effort into what is needed to succeed unless you are working for yourself. Invest in other things that make you happy.

Not at all true.
Most other industries, they can ask you to pull a double shift, because Susie called in sick.
Most other industries, they don't care if you worked until midnight last night, we need you at 5am to open.

Trucking isn't allowed to do that.
Obviously laws vary country by country, but if we're in USA, minimum 10 hours a day off, and most of the time you get it as one block.
Federal laws, and the dispatch office can get in big trouble for asking you to break them (ridiculous fines and possibly loss of authority to operate in commercial transport).

OP said he's a kitchen wagie, so his schedule might already be worse than that. This could be an improvement.
8 week training program, usually company paid - so it's not like he needs to take his ass out of work and into school for 2 years before seeing a return.
Starting pay is comparable or better than what he's making now.

... and a lot of guys I know got into it, did some online classes while living on the road, and now have a much better gig.
OP asked for a way out of the kitchen, and this could be it, unless he's one of those useless fucks.
>>
>>15097450
Yeah, but how often does that shit happen? I have to pull a double maybe once every 3 months or so, so I don't really think 14hrs/day is a better deal than 8 hrs/day with a 16 sprinkled in pretty rarely. Not to mention how fucking stressful driving is.

>I don't really think 14hrs/day is a better deal than 8 hrs/day with a 16 sprinkled in pretty rarely.
There are plenty of 8 hour/day jobs. It just can't exceed 14 hours/day of work.
>Not to mention how fucking stressful driving is.
Yeah, so maybe it's not for you, but thanks for giving it honest consideration.

I know that I used to work in a shit office, 10 hours a day was the norm, plus called in on weekends as needed, plus extending to 18 hour days as needed.
Kinda nice to just spend my day drinking coffee, sitting on my expensive seat, and staring out the window, then deciding to park for the night after about 12 hours, walk the 4 feet to bed, and be done with my commute.

Get out now, young ones, while you can.
I did 12 years in everything from mom-and-pop to top ranked Platinum Country Clubs.
I've flipped cheap pancakes on flattops, I've flipped Pad Thais in fiery woks.
I've grilled frozen Sysco burgers on gas, I've grilled prime Porterhouse's on imported charcoal.
I've helped open 3 restaurants, and have logged over 200 hours on a single paycheck.
I've cooked for Tom Brady, Steven Hawking, Paul McCartney, Thomas Keller and more.
IT DOESN'T GET BETTER.
Although, that's what all old people who don't make it will tell you, I couldn't do it, therefore you can't, and it's bullshit.
But you'll want things the Kitchen Life can't give you when you push to 30 and beyond.
My problem was, I hit leadership, and you stop doing many of the things that made me love the job. I didn't like being a Chef.

Get to sous as soon as possible. Get out of the pit that is line work, and then see if it's something you can stick out.
If you like it, rise, be a Chef or Kitchen manager, then go for F&B director, or Exec. The money is out there.
I've worked for Chefs who were getting 95k.
Dudes who run Country Clubs can get 200+.

If your mindset is "wagie" that's all you're gonna be with your dirty tee shirt and stupid ass ballcap. You need to flex on people. That's how you fuck people up.
I used to roll in with all my own tools, set up em real pretty. And trust me, when dude's see you brought your own fucking SPOONS, they know you don't fuck around.
Read lots of cookbooks, know shit that other dudes don't. I always got ahead quick cause I could mouth off tons of cooking science/lore. When the bosses see you educating your peers, they are already framing you as the next guy.

But don't be overly loyal like I was. Stay hungry, and if they won't give it to you, leave, immediately and without pause.

I quit with firm resolve not to return, that was months ago.
I still don't know what I'm going to do.

Thanks for reading my blogpost.

Agriculture adjacent truckers are exempt from all those regulations, and they dont get paid overtime either. Just yesterday I saw a trucker drive for 25 hours straight.
>t. warehousefag who deals with truckers every day
>>
>>15097609
Very true, but if wagie is going from line cook to megafleet as a rookie, he won't be "agriculture adjacent" - he's going to be running dry vans or reefers OTR, from plant to warehouse or warehouse to someplace else.

Ag exempt rules basically allow a farmer to run their own truck of grain to the elevator even if it takes an hour beyond what is allowed, or livestock haulers to get from the farm to the feedlot before the fresh bacon dies. There are surely guys who run nonstop, but it's not typical, and it's not entry-level, and after the truck is unloaded their exemption doesn't apply and they're supposed to spend 10 hours sleeping.

Picking up a load of cornflakes or tampons - the standard megafleet runs - isn't going to be like that, but you do get to blow the big horn when a kid pumps their arm.

Ever thought about going the food sceince route and being a laboratory chef? I've been considering it. I went to culinary school and cooked for 12 years myself. I've heard you can transfer culinary school credits, take some community college basics, then go to some meme school and you have a degree in food sceince for relatively cheap.

If you can handle an office and are actually willing to work hard at something, go work in a call center. Yes, they can be shitty. Yes, people can and will treat you like shit when you're on the phones. It's not a job where you just want to cruise and do the bare minimum because that shit will crush your soul. Have you ever met someone that's worked 30+ years in customer service? They're fucking miserable.

But if you're willing to put in some serious effort, it's pretty easy to break into management within a year or two and from there you can work your way into other support roles, consulting, project management, etc. I don't have a degree, 30, and am making close to 6 figures (while working from home in rural fucking Idaho lmao).

-If it's at all possible in your area, work directly for a company not for an outsourced joint. The latter is always much worse.
-Take advantage of whatever online learning platforms they have available, management loves that shit.
-Show you can do the work, and then show you can help others do the work.

Depends on where you are.
In the US, you have to apply for a student pilot's license. You'll fly with a flight instructor until you're proficient enough to fly solo with their permission. You have to fly a certain number of hours in different types of flight operations, as well as becoming proficient in different types of maneuvers. Once you have the prerequisites, you'll take an exam called a checkride with an examiner. If you pass, you have your private pilot's license, meaning you can now fly solo whenever you like.
You'll need more training and licenses to get a job, though. You have to learn to fly without reference to outside landmarks, like when you're flying in poor weather or clouds. This requires its own set of prerequisite training, and another checkride. This is the instrument rating.
You'll also have to get at least 250 hours and pass a commercial checkride. You'll also have to get a multi-engine add on to your commercial rating, since almost all commercial flying is done with more than one engine.
At that point, you have the basic experience necessary to get a job, but you'll probably need more experience before any company will consider hiring you. Some people become flight instructors themselves.
I worked at a simulator training company instead, working with pilots that came through for what's called a type rating. Large aircraft are very complicated, so you go through about a month of training learning the systems and how to fly it with various emergencies, like engine failures, etc. There's a pretty intense check ride at the end. You'll go through an additional "recurrent" check ride for the type every 6 months or year, depending on whether you're the pilot in command or first officer.
Working at the sim training company for about a year gave me a lot of experience with more complex aircraft, so I was hired with a relatively low (~325 hours) amount of actual flight time.
You have to work for anything that is worth doing, anon.

That fly-anon is neglecting the fact that you have to PAY FOR YOUR FUEL while training. The only way you get free hours is by joining the military and getting hours that way. Otherwise, when you go to school for flying you're both paying the school for the instructors, fees, etc., AND paying for the fuel. Flying is the only major I've seen UNDERGRADS get 6 figures in student loan debt.

Define pay well.

High paying work is either going to be jobs normies don't want (like cleaning septic tanks or trash collection or jumping into nuclear reactors (glowboys)) or jobs normies can't do (either due to a lack of effort to get qualified/certified or an intrinsic challenge in the work itself).

if i had a goal to work towards, i'm confident i could get certified for a job that paid well enough, just finding a target is a challenge
>>
>>15099186
Yeah, but what is "paid well enough" for you?
That is going to steer us toward suggesting useful targets.

Otherwise, call up the local IBEW and see what it takes to become an apprentice.

I couldn’t handle the life of a chef, I know that right now. I’ve worked retail and actually like it, so I was thinking waiter might be for me. Or has anyone been like a maitre d? How’s that? Obviously i know that’s far from an entry level position, just curious.

Jobs you should apply for are dependant on your geographical environment. Where do you live, generally?

I live in Ohio - I work for an international distribution center now. It was a seasonal warehouse job I applied for after I quit line cook work. Had only 500$ left at the very end of my unemployment. Now I'm cucked middle management for the same warehouse but I am doing fairly well financially. And I learned a bunch of data analyst skills.

Staffing firms are not great but if you bust your ass on the temp assignment you at least have a shot at it.

Covid is going to fuck all of this up, I'm afraid. It might just be you have to deal with it for a while.
>>
>>15091728
Look for an entry level position in a freight forwarding business or a customs house brokerage
>>
>>15097919
This should be higher up, call centers are pretty ripe for anybody that isn't a braindead lifer.

Getting work in real estate is hard as fuck if you don't work for a real estate firm, and if you work for a firm, they're going to be taking a sizable chunk of your commission.

Its funny because I'm doing that exact same thing for the exact same reason

>>15101666
I think youd be making more working for a firm than you would being a line cook, at least thats what Im convincing myself. I used to be a cook at waffle house so my assumption is that Ill make more than 11 dollars an hour

I'd say Military. But cooks are the hardest working mother fuckers there are regardless of what branch. I also don't know what federal jobs are available for cooks because your MOS isn't a 91 or 94 series.

Also, damn near every job site has a board with contact information for the lead contractor, required employment law postings, permits, etc.
That might give you a place to start looking, if you're too shy to look at the side of a truck when people you could accidentally talk to are there.
>>
>>15104504
Well I dont have an issue talking to people its just that most groups of construction workers are usually mexicans speaking spanish and I dont want to give that whole thing a try

My man, it is an immutable fact that restaurant owners are the most niggardly scum to walk the face of Earth. Do your job well for your own satisfaction, but do not make the mistake of believing they will ever, ever care about you. Better yet, take that work ethic into something self-owned, like a trade.

>>15091728
i used to work in food service, then i decided to try being a security guard. the guard card was like $150 total and the starting pay is higher than food service. it's a very low stress job overall, nothing compared to sweating in the kitchen for hours. i managed to weasel my way into a management position and now i make 90k salary, not bad.
>>
>>15104658
I dont want to attempt to people who primarily speak spanish? If there was someone in my very view times of being within walking distance of a construction site, spoke English or looked like it, I would have no qualms

How much time elapsed between you applying for a student's pilot's license and being hired to fly at your current job?

>>15091728
You're lucky you can still live with your parents. Use this as your advantage to save up and start your own restaurant business or restaurant related business. Ask yourself what's the biggest issue your boss has in terms of his business and go solve it. Learn about loans and how to leverage money to start a business. If you have time to bitch on 4chan, you have time to pick up an educational book at least 20 mins a day.

If you ever take a sabbatical year, go for it.
Many companies offer free training on a 1 year employment contract, if you don't feel like going out of pocket.
Solo OTR drivers basically get to go camping every night, and days are basically just go here, sign contract, go there, get contract signed, do some minor recordkeeping, repeat.
If you can crouch, climb 5 steps, and pass a stupidly basic physical, you're probably in.

>>15091728
Whatever it is you do, don't trust a single person telling you to take up a trade, it's fucking garbage if you're the kind of person who expects a work environment to not be completely braindead.

The part you idiots don't know is to do that and also make it very obvious you're doing that. It also only works when you're on the same floor as management, or someone directly related to management. Otherwise don't bother.

Having worked in construction and quit, it is very much not for everybody. Rain, snow, heat wave, etc you're working. You have to be very physically capable and willing to put up with a lot of assholes/borderline dangerous people. There's a huge rate of people quitting and injuries are common. My best friend has been a plumber only 4 years and his back injury is bad he hasn't worked in almost a year. He lives with constant pain.

I got my private pilot license while in college. Put it on hold for a while to finish, then worked odd jobs at a flight school and with a mechanic for about a year to get discounted training. Took me maybe a year and a half out of college to have everything.
That was taking my time and earning the money though. There are people that do it all within 6 months.
That said, those people tend to go straight to flight instructing.

I live in a really small town where the cost of living is super low, that just happens to be a college town. It's a state school, so as a resident I don't pay that much in tuition, and my rent is only $400/month. I'm also taking out a fair amount of student loans, but biotech is a secure enough career path that I'm not terribly concerned about having to pay them back.

Also, I fully recognize that STEM isn't the best choice for everyone. I was always academically gifted, so it was a fairly smooth transition to resume my education, but there were some things like the rules of algebra that I had to devote a lot of time to relearning. Trade schools or business classes are probably a better choice for most people in similar circumstances.

Get an Associates degree in the medical field. Jobs like radiology tech and respiratory therapy will start you out at 50k a year. With additional money for working nights or weekends. The Pell grant will cover tution, and scholarship money will go back in your pocket. You can do most of the prerequisite classes online. The actual programs are only around a year in length. Most hospitals need staff and you can move anywhere in the country. Keep knocking out school and it's easy to move up in the medical field.

Be a construction worker. Also how much rent do your parents charge you? You should be investing a good chunk of your money if your parents are charging you a lighter than normal rent for your area or no rent at all.
