Server & Bartender (Former Employee) – Oakville, ON – 21 August 2017
The food is fast food quality but ridiculously over priced. the hours are long for little pay. the managers make you wait up to an hour for your cash out while they talk to their friends at the bar. Head office is constantly sending out incentives for you to upsell which often times is actually a ploy to trick customers into paying more for the same thing. definitely do not recommend working nor dining here.
Bartender and server (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 21 August 2017
The GM of these two locations is absolutely amazing. They have two parties a year for staff, and they go above and beyond. He just really cares about his staff as people and has more than once had life chats when staff have been having a difficulty outside of work. Great staff, fun place.

Restaurant General Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 20 August 2017
Very much a program like a robot to follow to work in any franchise. Anyone can learn the job here at any level so that is a good thing. No creativity really. Just follow the program get paid and go home.

Working at boston pizza was overall a good place to work. Its a fast paced environment where you must move fast to keep up . Tought me proper time management skills as well as many other valuable skills for the work place.
Waitress (Current Employee) – Stony Plain, AB – 16 August 2017
Working at Boston Pizza Stony Plain was awesome! It's just like any other job though with a bit of drama between some of the workers but the managers do an awesome job of keeping everyone calm and making sure everything goes smooth!
General Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 August 2017
Felix able work schedule and part time positions. For me the hardest part was the franchisees as they were very controlling and never gave out to much information. Not all of the owners were this way but it was very tough
Hostess/Kitchen Assistant (Former Employee) – 264th and Fraser hwy – 12 August 2017
Being a hostess at Boston Pizza, for my experience, it was okay. A typical day at work would be working about two and a half hours, then having the rest of the day off, or working a split shift. Management was fine. I learnt working there how complex their menu is. Unable to provide an answer for workplace culture. Hardest part of the job, being swarmed by impatient guests, and food taking time to cook. Most enjoyable part of the job, would be working a fun full seven hour shift.
SERVER (Former Employee) – Bonnyville, AB – 9 August 2017
A typical day at work is usually a very faced paced day, socializing to many people on the daily. Management is super friendly and also strict to make sure things run smoothly throughout the day. The most enjoyable part of the day is having the chance to talk people and just see how everyones day is different, from what they are doing that night to the reason they are in town.
Lounge Server (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 3 August 2017
Those who have worked there for years walk and talk with a sense of entitlement, and that's coming from someone who has been working there for quite some time and would have entitlement if I took advantage of it. The servers really get screwed over. If say a $300 tab doesnt tip, the server still has to tip out the kitchen and the bartender, regardless if it was their fault or not. Resulting in the server having to pay $15 out of their pocket to serve that table. No one should have to pay to work, that is unacceptable. Some staff are great but bps is known for its drama. huge turn over.
fun place to work,not a long term solution for most
Server (Former Employee) – Camrose, AB – 3 August 2017
hours are pretty inconsistent as you will be cut before your scheduled time and then have to start cleaning duties. management is a little out of touch with its staff, but there were plenty of learning opprotunites to be had and there and skill building.
