Server/Bartender (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 27 October 2017
A typical day at work could be a challenge to deal with but I have learned to work under-pressure well enough. Management is very understanding and every employee believe's in a team work. Interacting with especial people could be hard but satisfying them could be a most enjoyable part of the job.

Service Manager (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 25 October 2017
Typical day at work is a mix of talking to guests and working on back office material. I learned a lot about the P&L for a restaurant that revenues a lot of money per year. The management team here is alright with some decent compatibility. The culture in this restaurant needs some work. There is too much staff turnover. The hardest part of the job is the long hours with not enough compensation. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to interact with people all day and teach staff how to improve their work.
Delivery Driver/Line cook (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 24 October 2017
Great place for a stepping stone. I enjoy the people there and the work sometimes. Was very deserving when i first started but overtime the business has went down. it varies. I learned a lot at Boston Pizza about what i want within a job. I multitask quite well and I'm an extremely fast learner which surprised me. That was a skill i learned. Management has changed over the years and its gotten better but gotten worst at the same time. My typical day at work would be 1130 am to 2 pm and sometimes i get deliveries but that's still not enough tips to make. I work tiring split shifts, for being there for 3 years i still haven't received a raised quite disappointing I find the morning shifts very useless. I definitely enjoy the people i work with, they're like family to me which is a reason why i stayed at BP even through frustration and stress. Hardest part is getting the hours you want because they aren't flexible with my hours and they don't pay me more for the the duties i do outside my position. I enjoy the people i work with and I do enjoy doing deliveries outside enjoying the weather.

Hostess, Server (Former Employee) – Okotoks, AB – 23 October 2017
I loved working with the people I worked with, everyone treated everyone like they were family. The management team became close to my heart and we all got along great. There weren't very many tricky parts to this job, because we all helped each other and much as possible. The most enjoyable part was the people I met, the people I worked with and the people I worked for.

Hostess (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 18 October 2017
As a hostess I was limited to the jobs I could do because I was only 17. I was in charge of taking take-out orders,making sure the customer paid and received the correct order. I took payments for majority of the tables in the restaurant as well as greeting/seating guests and answering phone calls. There was an odd couple of times where i would take a drink order and bring the drinks to tables for the servers.
Always busy, never bored or not doing anything
Rude customers once in awhile, not much contact with the general manager
