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 – more... off by 3. – less

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 – more... the food industry, go for it. I learned the importance of taste, presentation, and working efficiently. – less
