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

Slow with lack of work security due to new staff consistently
Server (Former Employee), North York, ONJanuary 14, 2014
Pros: food discounts, tips
Cons: short hours, no hours, getting shifts taken away for new staff, being sent home due to no guests
The turn over of guests was really low, therefore you never see new faces and the turn over in staff was really high due to management always bringing new staff in and running the senior staff out of their hours therefore quitting.
There was no security because there were few guests and because management would provide hours where staff felt they were – more... deserved.
Staff would also be made to stay hours before they would get started on shift because it was so dead even though they were scheduled for a certain time, or they would be sent home with no pay only a free lunch. – less

Fun place to work!
Server (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABJanuary 8, 2014
Pros: cheap food, tips
Cons: long hours when closing
I loved working at Boston Pizza. Downtown is such a busy place, the restaurant would usually be full. Sometimes breaking a sweat running from table to table. Tips were also amazing!. The management team wasn't really the greatest, but my coworkers were the greatest group I've ever worked with. Hardest part of the job was dealing with unhappy guests.

Hostess (Former Employee), Drumheller, ABJanuary 7, 2014
Pros: great discount
Cons: changing managers, lack of organization
Because I started working there when I was thirteen so I enjoyed the fun enjoyable environment. The management was always changing but all the managers were very understanding and eager to work. I learned more about handling money and my personality fit well with working with people and with costumers. The hardest part of the job, as bad as it sounds, – more... was a few costumers. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with fun people. – less

Waitress (Former Employee), lloydminster abDecember 31, 2013
Pros: half off meals
Cons: late nights
A typical Friday night was really busy there was always something to do. There was never a boring minute. Although it may have gotten a little hectic management kept everything in line. The hardest part of the job was when it got really late at night and I had been working all day. Other employees would cheer you on and keep you awake. The most enjoyable – more... part of the job was the regular guests that would come in it was a great way to meet friends and contribute to the community. Being a chatter box myself, this made it a perfect job choice for me as being sociable was part of the job. Tips helped too! – less

Cook (Former Employee), Woodstock, ONDecember 4, 2013
i got up and got there about 15 mins before i started got ready in uniform and the clocked in. got the dish area ready to go for the dishwasher if I was not the one. warmed up soups and sauces on stove and then went to do the perp for the day. i some times i would work dish and help out on making pizzas and that. I learned how to let every one know – more... when you are coming threw with a hot pot and how to make sure every one knows you have a knife. I got a long good with management and co-workers. we could joke around as long as we were still working hard. the hardest part was to make sure you had every thing that went with the order in the oven and it made right. part i enjoyed was working with the people and doing prep work . – less

Pros: free dinner
Cons: late night shifts during school

Extremely enjoyable, wonderful co-workers, easy to get along with everyone
Kitchen Staff (Current Employee), Campbell River, BCNovember 22, 2013
Pros: amazing staff, fun, easy to get along with everyone
Cons: short hours
Work always depends on the amount of customers we get and how busy we are, there are always things to do, apart from cooking.

Co-workers here are extremely easy to get along, despite often being the youngest, and the only female on shift. It's easy to go from work to home life and vise versa. Staff are very friendly and so is management. We are often – more... called, by owners and sometimes management, a family.

It is sometimes difficult to get more than the regular stuff done on a shift due to them being usually only about 3-4 hours, and depending on how busy it is, but the staff definitely make it worth while to be there. – less

Dishwasher, Line Cook, Prep cook (Former Employee), Richmond, BCNovember 19, 2013
Cons: different hours, no free food, they played music in the kitchen and it was to loud.
a typical day would be doing prep making food for the guest. I learned that cooking you need to love cooking for being in a restaurant and it does get very busy which sometimes its best for the shift to be busy.. my co-workers were alright most of them were in the same age as me..

Fast paced restaurant with menu changes quarterly.
Assistant Kitchen Manager (Former Employee), Fort Frances, ONNovember 17, 2013
Pros: excellent co-workers and the pace made time go by quickly.
Cons: long hours if a lot of prep was needed for the day.
Come in and help set up kitchen by putting in exhaust vents, turning on equipment (deep fryers, grill, oven). Then start to prep the produce for the day while cooking orders as they come in. After produce is complete we would start a batch of dough, mixing water and yeast with a 20 kg mix of dry ingredients. Spending the afternoon cutting, rolling and – more... pressing dough into select sizes for our pizzas. – less
