Sous isn't a union gig. It's considered a low-level casino management position. Plan on the mid-50s range to start.

If you're looking for a straight 40-hour week, then go for a master cook position. I know a lot of chefs who have left because of the slave-driver hours and become union cooks. The chef tournants and sous chefs make about $15,000 more per year, but they usually work 20 to 40 more hours a week. Not at all worth it as far as I'm concerned.

If I was offered the white jacket tomorrow, I'd decline. I've worked salary most of my life, and I'm done with it. Next time I work that many hours, it will be my own business.

I was a baker in the Culinary Union and made $17.33 an hour, as did all my co-workers.

Hey Scoop...how about starting a thread on Las Vegas chefs? Maybe the whole enchilada from dishwasher to Wolfgang in both the union and management levels.

No. If they hire you, then you join the union. (Or opt out, as Nevada is a right-to-work state.)

The pay is based on the property. Each property (or group of properties) has their own deal with the culinary union.

But the short answer is "around $20 per hour" for cooks -- after the probationary period is over, at least.

It's still current info that most people would like to know. We get so many threads about pay around here.

It made more sense to quote that post than the one that read "how much do cooks make at Luxor." Same question, and less typing that way.
