Line Cook/Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 23 June 2017
I started as a dishwasher which was kinda boring work. However it was not much fun, not due to the company just the dutys of dishwashing wasnt all that fun. Luckily I was promoted to line cook. Being a line cook was fun most co-workers were pretty chill and fun to work with. The hours were pretty good too. Nothing outrageous other than the odd closing shift. They were also very flexible with time off for school, vacation, ect. Overall not a bad job if you are looking to get into the work force.
Fun co-workers, flexible hours, employee discount.

Some days were slow, others you're scrambling to keep up cause there was typically only 1 worker on dishes. Solo nights on higher turnout was difficult, though the employees do their best to coordinate shifts for busier nights.
free non-alcoholic drinks, discount on food
often need to stay later than scheduled hours as kitchen clears out before dish pit.

checked into work, went to the host stand, if there was even just two hosts standing at the host stand they make someone go do "laps" meaning walk around the restaurant and look busy. manager was not very nice or understanding. they workers were fun to work with but thats about it

Boston pizza was a very flexible work environment that taught me a lot of communication skills and people skills . Working here gave me the advantage amongst my peers as I was emersed in human interaction and time management everyday.

It just depends on the people you work for at the restaurant, if you can get along with them, Boston Pizza is a great place to work and get experience in various fields of work. Benefits are really good and work hours can be flexible (closing till 2 am can really affect your sleep schedual tho)
Very fun workplace with great attitude from everyone.
Cook/Server (Current Employee) – Saint John, NB – 15 June 2017
Typical day at work for me is to come in and start making nacho chips for the day and then cooking 60-90 pieces of chicken for the day. Then I would take the deposit to the bank and then the rest of the day I'd help out with orders and keeping up with dishes
Hostess/Busser (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 15 June 2017
Set tables, clean and clear, clear dishes, other cleaning duties and tend to customers waiting to be seated, I learned that I work very well in a very busy environment, workplace culture was good i always loved the people I would work with and never had an issue. Hardest part of the job is accommodating all of the customers when not enough tables were available and most enjoyable was working with the people that were so nice to work with and the regulars were always something i looked forward to.

Boston Pizza is a funfilled family restaurant that brings family together in a place outside the home . With meals that taste good and are within a good price range you get the home away from with less dishes . working there showed me alot about hard work an how to handle stressful situations.
Line Cook (Former Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 14 June 2017
A typical day of work would include prepping the food, cooking guest's orders and cleaning my work area. Occasionally, I would help open or close the kitchen. While working there, I learned a lot about food safety and working as a team. The hardest part of the job was the business. It's a very fast paced job. The most enjoyable part of the job is prepping the food and opening the store.
Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 14 June 2017
i worked at a boston Pizza in the downtown Hamilton area for almost 7 years and it was a fun and busy place to work and enjoyed being there even though it was long nights (pasta Tuesdays with the university students coming in i was lucky to make it home by 3:30 am ) but the last few years i was there the good employees all started leaving and more students/part timers were brought in and the quality of work started suffering and when brought up to management it was pretty much treated like it was no big deal .Mistakes on orders were constantly being made and attitude exhibited by workers was less than satisfactory and basically was glad to get out there .A shame because i did enjoy being and to see it deteriorate to what it became was depolorable .
Line Cook/Prep Cook (Current Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 12 June 2017
i am working in boston pizza from last 1 years. i have seen so many people comes and goes but i am still working beacause i like to work and do my assigned work. moreover, as i am getting more experience, they put more pressure on me which make me difficult to manage the kitchen alone. as well as in pay matter they pay only basics which i feel like very less according to the work they take from me. Thank you.
