Unfriendly emplyees
Food prep (Former Employee), Lindsay, ONApril 1, 2014
Not the best place to enjoy working. It was rushing around, un proper comunication between the emplyees, the hardest part would be the mis comunication between the cooks in the kitchen

Overall, a good learning experience in the restaurant field.
Kitchen Supervisor (Former Employee), Markham, ONMarch 17, 2014
Pros: serious but relaxed environment, free dinners with my supervisory position
Cons: long hours, occasional organizational issues
As my first real job, I would say that working in Boston Pizza for three years has been a good experience.

It has been a great learning experience for me. It may have its downs, such as some organizational issues. Like running low on portioned items, things not getting defrosted, etc. But on the flip side, I learned how to problem solve quickly as – more... restaurants are really unpredictable when it comes to incidents.

Most importantly though, I have learned how to work in fast paced environment. Initially I was extremely slow in getting familiar with everything. But I got to pace and learned that in the restaurant industry, you have to be fast. Also communication is always key to the restaurant. If you want a fast, flawless service, you always have to talk to your co-workers.

There are times that I work with co-workers who mope around and literally do nothing. I usually have a talk with the managers to deal with them directly. Even though I'm pretty relaxed and personable, I cannot stand that.

Hours are long for me as I usually work 5 days seasonally, With weekend closing shifts. Even though I complained, this was also a learning experience. Such as working by yourself on unpredictably busy night and manage time effectively.

Overall, it was a good learning experience for me and helped build new skill sets that are beneficiary to future jobs in the related field. – less

Nice environment and friendly people
Server (Former Employee), Boston, MAMarch 12, 2014
Pros: having so many good friends
I loved working at Boston Pizza, it has a nice environment and all the staff are really friendly even the managers are like brothers and sisters to me. They were fun to work with and they were always there to support me from the beginning until the day I left (I moved houses). I learned a lot of things from Boston Pizza, the best customer service, cash – more... handling, handling different situations and engaging different kinds of people everyday and being friends with them. I would say there was no hard job for me because this job was too easy, it's like meeting with friends,serving foods to them and at the same time having conversations with them. I really enjoyed it! I wanted to come back because I went back to my place again but I wanna try something new, new experiences and new people. – less

typical work day
Server (Current Employee), Calgary, ABMarch 3, 2014
Usually I worked a 6.5 to 9.5 hour shifts, monday to thursday I worked either in the restaurant or the lounge by myself. Fridays I had a hostess and another server. Depending on the day of the week, although some days were unpredictable, it's usually slow. I'd maybe have 3-7 tables from 10:30am-5pm. I've learned to be self sufficiant and reliable and – more... able to work by myself or as part of a team, such as working with colleagues. The most enjoyable part of my day is interacting with so many different people throughout the day. – less

Line Cook (Former Employee), Parry Sound, ONFebruary 27, 2014
Pros: 50% off meals
Cons: very short hours, superviserial problems.
For the short amount of time that I worked there Boston pizza the kitchen staff and waiting staff displayed fantastic work ethics and always worked at 110%. The only thing that would be noted as bad were the choices made by the management. Such as hiring to many people and having to lay other workers of. The schedule was never established in a proper – more... manner. – less

A place where to grow
Prep cook (Former Employee), Pincher Creek, ABFebruary 22, 2014
Pros: half off on all the dishes
Cons: working split shifes
Getting up in the morning and watching the sun come up over the hills as i was walking to work was a treat in its self. Then getting to make the pizza dough by hand and pressing it into the pans was a lot of fun and hard work. Then by mid after noon getting all the other prep work done and talking to the team and listing to the music that was perverted – more... by a staff member made the day go quickly. And learning about all the different foods that go out and how to assemble them was exceeding – less

Fun and busy
Host (Former Employee), Boston, MAFebruary 18, 2014
The environment was always busy and professional. The pay was minimum wage and it takes a long time to be promoted from a host to a waitress/waiter. You always have something to do so you're never bored and you typically have good hours.

Dishwasher (P/T) (Current Employee), New Westminster, BCFebruary 17, 2014
Pros: putting thing away where they need to be.
Cons: sometimes things got misplaced and i had to find them for others.

Server (Current Employee), Clifton Hill, Niagara Falls, ONFebruary 10, 2014
Pros: good work environment and great staffing.
Cons: some customers are very difficult to deal with.
There is a great management staff. When things need to be done, they get completed. I've learned a lot from working at Boston Pizza for close to four years now. I've learned to not let things overwhelm me and always be calm with impatient or tempered guests. There is a great staff of workers that work together as a team. The most enjoyable part of the – more... job is meeting people from all over the world and seeing what they have to say about Niagara Falls – less
