Personally, I find it a hard job, but having the passion makes it easier. Has anyone ever told you you're useless as an apprentice? Not by a chef, but by someone who dj's for a living.
Would you consider being an apprentice hard?

A DJ calling an apprentice chef useless??? That's like the pot making fun of the kettle!!! If you work hard, apply yourself and above all pay attention to your chef you can succeed. It's not an easy career choice and you need a thicker skin than other trades, but if you have a passion you can survive.
