General/Institution Cook Reviews

What is it like working as a General/Institution Cook?

General/Institution Cook in Blacktown:
"Cook in a club."
Pros: Creative, fun, easy, most co-workers are good. Good head chef. Overtime rates are very good.
Cons: Top management, including one chef, treats you like shit. Club is known to treat its workers like shit. Conditions in kitchen too hot due to shitty extraction and shitty aircon systems. Basic pay is not great. Physical.
