Server (Current Employee), Fleetwood, BCApril 25, 2014
Working as a server can be demanding but it is very rewarding. Boston Pizza is very flexible with scheduling, time-off and picking up more shifts. Leaving for school and being able to come back to work over the christmas break was very generous of the management.

My experience
Waitress (Former Employee), Midland, ONApril 19, 2014
I'm not looking to get back into serving again, the job wasn't for me, I'm not comfortable with a lot of multitasking. Couple things I did learn from this job was to always keep the customers happy, making sure their needs are met, staying organized, keeping things tidy in the work place. The best part about this job was that I made some great friends, – more... & even though I am not working at the restaurant anymore I am still close with the friends I gained during the job. – less

Fun and accommodating workplace
Server/Bartender (Current Employee), Barrie, ONApril 8, 2014
Pros: discounts on food for family and friends, flexible work schedule.
My co-workers make my job fun and interesting

A typical day would include coming to work on time, making sure my section is clean and presentable, checking the daily specials, greeting customers and delivering excellent quality of service. Handling money and doing cash outs at the end of the night.
The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting new people – more... and bringing back my regulars.
Ive learned so much about customer service and this job has provided me so much opportunity to grow and come out of my once shy shell. Now i am one of the most up beat people working there.

This job has been great for fitting around my busy work schedule and my managers are 100% accommodating. – less

Great start
SERVER/BARTENDER (Former Employee), Orillia, ONApril 4, 2014
Pros: starter
Cons: limited
I started as a server and eventually became a bartender. This was a great starting point for a career in food and beverage or customer service.

The only drawback was the part time hours. There was not much advancement opportunity.

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

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

Fun time at Boston Pizza
Server (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABFebruary 27, 2014
Pros: discounts
Cons: short breaks, no benefits
A typical day at work is generally the same as any other waitress job. What make Boston Pizza different is giving me the ability to be excited about getting to work and having a great shift with an amazing team. Management at my location has gone above and beyond the bar to make sure we are happy in our work place and that we are constantly learning – more... new things everyday. The coworkers I have the pleasure of working with make it that much better. As we all started in a new store together, we all have the ability to keep a consistency of movement together. By this I mean when you truly know your coworkers you can make the restaurant function that much better. The hardest part of my job would be when people don't participate the way they should. Meaning that they are not working with the team to make things run properly. As is a cog out the clock is broken. This creates a blip in the system and then we now need to pull the extra weight. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing a service well provided from my customers. When I hear of the excellence we have provided and the care we take for them, this makes my nights and shows I am always progressing. – 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

Line cook, Trainer, Dishwasher (Former Employee), Orillia, ONFebruary 19, 2014
An unprofessional heart of house in which supervisors were extremely cruel and degrading. I would never work for such a vile establishment again.

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.
i went there clocked in then started to wash and put away dishes.
When i was done i also helped others with Prep. The hardest part of the job id say was washing the dough maker. i enjoyed that the people around me were friendly and helpful.
