cook & Prep (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABNovember 17, 2015
Pros: People, Discount
Cons: Not busy, no hours
Good Shift, but not busy. Only got 2-3 hours to work, so that means less money. And learned how to make and cook pizza and pasta, and WHIMS and the safety proceduers in a resteraunt.

An unreliable place to work
delivery driver, hostess (Former Employee), Uxbridge, ONNovember 9, 2015
Pros: Discounted meals, lovely coworkers
Cons: Not enough hours, not reliable
Arrive at 5pm, help process food until a delivery came through.
Prep for delivery, take to address in a timely fashion, drop off food and return to the restaurant.
Learn how to manage time and be efficient.
Management was often chaos.
Hardest part of the job was having to touch meat (I'm a vegetarian, but you gotta do it)
Meeting the greatest kitchen staff with the best sense of humour.

Got my foot in the door.
Pizza Maker food prep ect. (Former Employee), Williams Lake, BCNovember 3, 2015
Pros: like working with my hands and with weight and measurements.
Cons: wasnt a long length of time.
Was my first time behind a restaurant handling food and orders. I want to be in the culinary field as a job and career. Learned that you dont have one task at hand and others are teammates and there task is just as important. Words and vision are key the better the safer and run smooth.

Lounge Server (Former Employee), Hinton, ABOctober 30, 2015
I worked with this company for over 5 years on and off. I enjoy the customer interaction here as well as the people I worked with. We got a meal discount here on every shift which is benefitial when working full time. I would go back to this location if I could.

Horrible place to work
Bartender/Server (Former Employee), Terrace, BCOctober 26, 2015
Pros: Staff is fun to be around
Cons: management, lower than average pay, taking advantage of staff, bad morale, zero positive criticism, shady actions
I worked there as a manager for only a few months, and although I loved the staff that worked there, the management is absolutely atrocious. There were constantly 'funny' things that were going on behind the scenes, like covering up harassment claims, and an event of a staff member making extremely racist comments in front of many customers. The owner of this Boston Pizza picks favorites with staff and treats the rest like they do not exist. Management here has the idea that 'management' means delegating everything, instead of making sure that all customers are well taken care of, meaning helping staff out when they get swamped.

bartender/server (Former Employee), Whitecourt AlbertaOctober 19, 2015
Pros: Meeting new people
Cons: Timing on food
I had an amazing time working at Boston Pizza. It was cut short when I found out I was expecting a baby, and left on maternity leave after working a year.
The staff all got along, everyone worked as a team, and did their share. If shifts needed to be covered, I was more than happy to help out.

Fun atmosphere with great people to work with. Meeting new people everyday.
Server (Current Employee), Coquitlam, BCOctober 18, 2015
Pros: Great people, tips, flexible hours, fun atmosphere
Cons: Not full time, no consistency, filler job
I like working at Boston Pizza. The mangers and staff are friendly, fun to work with and help out when needed. I like helping people and giving them the best possible customer experience.

I've been in the service industry for many years but I learn new things all the time. Building a rapport with the people that I serve is very important to me. It helps me understand their needs and concerns.

Unfortunately, it is still just a serving job and with that comes downfalls. Hours aren't constant as well as the tips. But we all have to do those filler jobs until the career comes along.

All in all, Boston Pizza is a great place for anyone looking for some quick cash and a fun and inviting atmosphere.

Boston Pizza Weekend Relief
Shift Supervisor/Relief Manager (Current Employee), Calgary, ABOctober 12, 2015
Pros: Free lunches, extra money for "fun".
Cons: No days off with family.
This could have been a good job but being a relief manager, I didn't get to "manage" ... I was more supervisor. I didn't "own" any responsibilities. I invented ways to implement "team building" and made the environment fun.

productive and fun work place where youre always completing a task
HOSTESS (Current Employee), Winnipeg, MBOctober 10, 2015
Pros: tips
Cons: no breaks
Boston Pizza is a fun but fast paced environment where you need to learn quickly ad efficiently to preform in the most successful way. I learnt how to deal with customers and their issues in a very proper manner and I learnt a variety of positions so I can help my co workers with anything. Everyone was very nice and welcoming which help made me feel more comfortable starting there. The most enjoyable part about my job is that everyone has to work as a team therefore you have to be close to everyone in order for everyone to succeed by helping each other out .
