I like to schwedule 3pm -12am
Senior Residential Advisor (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAOctober 22, 2013
Pros: great hours
worked from 3pm - 12am, Monday- Friday, Briefing with staff, reading log entries from last shift, dorm meetings, room check for cleanliness. Managers were great, they come to the dorms and was in contact with us. co-worker were hard workers and did there jobs.
The hard thing I had to do was to do performance evaluations on a staff person who was not doing there job. I enjoyed the hours and the students we served.

Culinary Arts Student (Current Employee), San Francisco, CADecember 10, 2012
I was a student at the Treasure Island Job corps center in their advanced culinary arts trade. We did mostly hands on training and got paid $47.03 every two weeks. As a culinary student/employee i was involved in production for caterings and providing food through our fine dinning kitchen accompanied by a group of my peers. In the advanced program we really got exposed to different cuisine and styles of cooking while continuing to develope the skills we learn at our previous center for basic culinary arts training.

It was a positive experience that I learned a lot and grew from.
Server/Cook (Former Employee), San Francisco, CaJuly 13, 2012
Pros: free meals, first pick on good food.
Cons: working for no money but for room and board. unruly trainees.
A typical day of work was wake up at 6am, breakfast by 6:45am. Finish eating and and be in the kitchen by 8:00 am. 8:30 the chef/instructor arrives and everyone is is briefed on today's dishes that will be prepared for lunch. Food is prepped, cooked and "plated" by 11:30am for lunch. Once lunch is served we clean and do the same for dinner and we're off by 3.

Pros and cons, but I still appreciated the training.
Food & Beverage, Garde Manger, AM (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAApril 30, 2012
Pros: dedicated instructors, the program requires no charge, just dedication.
Cons: usually refer it as a live in high school, some staff are rather questionable
After finishing Pine Knot Job Corps, Treasure Island was...different.
I enjoyed that we had more to work with, and being able to explore the city was amazing. I wouldn't recommend the going if you're the type to up and quit from the first negative situation you're in. But as a completely free program with training, and if you really want to work in the food industry, go for it. I learned the importance of taste, presentation, and working efficiently.
