Line cooks make, on average, about $10/hour but this figure varies by company and can be up to $15 or $16 hourly. Annually, this adds up to about $22,000 to $30,000.
Most restaurants require their line cooks to have a culinary school diploma as well as a regular high school diploma. Experience cooking in a professional setting is also usually another requirement.
