#1=work your a** off
#2=be available. No one likes to fill a shift...if you can, kudos
#3=DO IT! whatever the chef says, do it(unless it is beyond common sense). There is a reason it is being asked for. A rare occasion when you shoot firs, ask later.
#5=it isn't food tv. realize that being "prochef" is anything but glamourous. Do it for the love of gastronomy.
