    A really good place to start if you're looking for a Mon-Fri days gig is ARAMARK, they run contract food services at higher education institutions and also provide business dining services. Also, any prosperous restaurant in our financial district is sure to be looking for weekday help. I'll let you know if I find anything, but that might help you.

    Thanks cnochef! I've heard of ARAMARK and I think I've applied for a job,through them, at U of T about 6 years ago.Unfortunately they told me I was "over qualified" for the job.Maybe I'll try again.I've also thought about applying at a private school like Havergal or something similar.Would ARAMARK run those kinds of kitchens as well?
    Thanks again for the tips.
    Cheers
    Peter

    That is another good idea! Sometimes the private schools contract out to a company like Aramark, but sometimes they run their own too. Another good place to look is retirement homes.

    Here is one I found right away by using Google and the search term chef/manager Toronto:

    https://aramark.taleo.net/careersect...g=en&job=64837

    I just thought of another potential employer www.compass-canada.com

    I work at one of those Hired-by-a-college-caterers! It is amazing hours--630 to 430 mon-fri. Pay sucks, though, and the diet of college kids gets depressing. Still it's the cushiest food service job I've had.
