FAQs for chef jobs


HOW MUCH SHOULD I CHARGE FOR MY SERVICES?

Each member Chef charges for their services at different rates.  Factors include the number of years of experience in the industry, the menu being offered, and competition in the area.



THERE IS AN EVENT THAT I AM INTERESTED IN DOING, BUT IT'S OUTSIDE MY AREA.  CAN I STILL GET A TRAVEL FEE?
Many chefs deal with this by visiting friends or family in the client's location, combining it with a personal shopping trip, or making it into a mini-getaway, to help alleviate extra travel costs.  We even have a few chefs who visit parents who live out-of-province a few times a year.  They let us know in advance, and we keep them updated with events in those locations, so that they can still do a few events while on their trip.  For example, CHEF RICHARD visited Ontario from British Columbia in October 2015: "I had great success with events in Ontario... Thanks and looking forward to finishing the month of October in Ontario, strong!... Yes, I will be back for the month of December in Ontario."

Otherwise, Chefs should discuss travel fees directly with their clients.


I ACCEPT PAYMENTS VIA PAYPAL. WHY DO I GET CHARGED A FEE FROM PAYPAL?

Unlike being employed, there are costs to running a business.  One of these is accepting payments.  

Whether you accept cheques, credit cards, debit cards or Pay Pal, there are always transaction fees of some sort for accepting money.  Now over 99% of our chefs have chosen Pay Pal as a way to get paid by The Chef Alliance and for invoicing their own clients.  Pay Pal's flat, transparent pricing and quick and easy invoicing and payment solutions make it a great tool for Personal Chefs. 

Since financial information (like credit card numbers and bank accounts) is securely stored and encrypted on their servers, you and your clients don't need to share financial information with anyone - a great security feature giving peace of mind.  For more information, please check out PayPal's website.



CAN I CANCEL MY MEMBERSHIP AT ANY TIME?
You may cancel at any time, but would be responsible for the remaining instalments of the dues for the Term, since we pay for your insurance (and Restaurants Canada member, if applicable) in advance, and they do not issue refunds upon cancellation. 

Remember that your membership includes the insurance which protects you for your own privately-booked events that can be described as Personal Chef events rather than catering events.  Typically, insurance would cost you over $1200 plus tax if you were to go to an insurance company directly, so even if you did no events with us, you would still be better off, because our membership is a fraction of this.  In fact, many chefs join simply to save money on the insurance, and for no other reason!
