Hostess (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – September 29, 2016
Boston Pizza was a giant family. Everyone got along for the most part and managers were always looking out for us in any way they could. I truly felt supported and accepted into their team, something I had yet experienced.
Server/Bartender (Former Employee) – Fernie, BC – September 23, 2016
Worked at bps in fernie BC, they spent an hour training me and expected me to know the whole menu and all the computer stuff after a couple days. The gm was using drugs at work and every server there got over loaded tables and it was hotinlel. After working here I decided the restraint busines was not for me. Not to mention they still owe me a pay cheque.
Cook (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – September 22, 2016
Shifts go by fast, I learned to make plenty of dishes from scratch. Management is great and the co workers make the job much more fun. In my opinion the hardest part of the job is when someone calls off and leaves you with more task then your typical day, and finally the best part of the job was the discounts.
server/waitress (Current Employee) – Okotoks, AB – September 21, 2016
I love working here and the hours are very flexible. A typical day at work for me is taking tables and working for about five hours in the evening. I have learned excellent customer service skills and interacting with all different types of people.
upbeat fun place to work lots of good bonds with other workers

Manager (Former Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – September 15, 2016
I worked as a manager where I oversaw the duties of 20-40 staff per shift. I learned many skills relating to the hospitality industry that can be applied to many business jobs. The job required long hours and extra shifts when needed. The team was great.
Mobile Server (Current Employee) – Peterborough, ON – September 14, 2016
We are a team at Boston Pizza. Everybody wants to know you. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Best place to work at least once in a lifetime, if not for the rest of your life. You meet great customers. Even though you might work part time, they can train you on other positions that makes up for missing hours.
Tips, training in different positions, discount on meals
Long hours, meals should be free for every staff members if you show up on time everyday.
Line cook (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – September 13, 2016
I remember I liked working at Boston Pizza, but the manager expected a lot from her employees. I didn't have any problems meeting her expectations, but I was hired with 4 other cooks and out of 5 of us I was the only one who did not get fired in the end. Job is very physically demanding at times, but if you like the high energy and fast pace jobs that keeps you occupied it is the job for you.
Server and Hostess (Current Employee) – St. Paul, AB – September 12, 2016
My co workers are like my extended family. If I ever leave this location I will remember everyone they helped shape me into who I am. The hosts, the other servers, the supervisors and my general manager are all amazing people who listen to me even if it's not work related.
Cook (Former Employee) – Vermilion, AB – September 12, 2016
Worst place to work Management is worthless Co workers are terrible They lie to get what they want I can't believe I ever tried to go back to that awful place. I advise anyone wanting to work here to not to.
Fun, fast paced work environment that will keep you on your toes
Dining Room Manager/ Server (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – September 12, 2016
I loved working for this company! One of my favorite jobs by far! I started here with no serving experience and quickly moved my way into management and then into upper management. I loved the crew I worked with, along with the job itself. Management was very easy to get along with as well as eager to teach me new things that I wanted to learn. The hours were long, and sometime took away from family time, but was a great sacrifice to be able to learn the things that I have and further my resume.
Waitress server (Former Employee) – Medicine hat – September 2, 2016
I worked at Boston pizza as a waitress and as a cook over the years. The restaurant was very busy and I had to be able to work In a fast filled environment so organization was key. I did well because I always had made sure I was looking two steps ahead. The family who owned the business were very good to work for.
Good food, meet lots of people and developed relationships as they were regular customers.
