Be a chef if you want to work hard and long hours. All of the chefs that I know (friends and family) work about 6+ days a week.

I think it can be hard finding a job for younger chefs without knowing the right people. You would have to find a job every now and then, because restaurants can close down or change owners.

You want easy job?

You become homeless guy who stands at intersection and asks for money with sign.

For reference sign usually says: "No money. Homeless. Anything helps."

No labour intensive, long hours, easy.

If your looking into trades but you dont want to do anything labour intensive then you may have to look elsewhere.

If you are doing a mundane job now and the thought of hard labour is worrying you its because you have to get used to it. Hard work and finishing a job is very satisfying and you will get used to it.

There are alot of trades you can get into:

Electrical
Plumbing
Gas Fitting
Sheet Metal

Thats just to name a few. I am a 3rd year Refrigeration and Heating tech and its great. Although I didnt go to school at BCIT, I hear they offer a decent program. If you are to choose this trade though I do recommend going to JARTS in langley, they offer the best schooling for the refrigeration trade.

Pros:

Wide variety of work environments (commercial, residential, industrial)
Wide variety of work in general (gas, heating, A/C, refrigeration (coolers, freezers at supermarkets etc)
Good pay
The trade is in high demand
Very technical, always learning new things every day
Good base pay with raises that come often
Usually get your own van for work
Respect - People respect you when you have a trade, your working in a field that most people know little to nothing about and that makes you valuable.

Cons:
Work at some shitty places
Dealing with unpleasent people at times
Long hours (refrigeration guys work long hours)
Steep learning curve
On call for emergency situations

I am in residential and I enjoy it. The majority of guys go into commercial rooftop work or refrigeration work working with walk in coolers, fountain pop machines, ice machines etc. Have a look at the BCIT website and see what you like and just go for it. But remember, there is gonna be labour involved in whatever trade you choose so your just gonna have to man up and do it. Sheetmetal might be an option for you as most sheetmetal guys can work in a large shop and create parts needed to HVAC guys. Something to consider

Lol if you want a trade that isnt that technical then you may be out of luck. Every trade has its theories and refrigeration is probably the most complex.

Consider maybe auto mechanic?

Depends which company you work for. My foreman was on the job working away with the rest of the crew every day. He never sat back while everyone else worked. (Although I bet he wish he could) And this guy was well into his 50's as well. Even in bigger companies the foreman was still working with an apprentice laying pipe. It all depends on the company.

On a side note. Trades is not for this guy.. You don't to work hard, you dont want a technical job, you dont want to wake up early. Look into becoming a crane operator. You sit on your ass all day and play with joy sticks and pedals. Sound about right your ally, then again its probably stressful as fuck.

Not sure why but this almost seems insulting to anyone licensed in a trade.
If you're seriously asking these questions, then trades aren't for you. You've already exceeded your potential as a data entry clerk. I would've pegged you as a walmart shelf stocker

well yea, on most residential and even industrial applications trade foremen will always be doing hands on work. I kind of worded it poorly, was referring morseo to superintendent positions etc and management roles

-More technical: take your time, use your brain, and do it the first time. Technical jobs usually deal with more expensive materials.
-Less technical: work harder/faster for speed. Speed is all you need.


I rather be technical
