Great place to work
LINE COOK (Former Employee), Coquitlam, BCJune 6, 2014
Pros: people, hours, learning new things
Cons: n/a
Cactus Club Cafe is rated the fourth best company to work for with over one hundred employees. Always had a great time at work starting anywhere from 12 o'clock to 6 and working anywhere from 8 to 10 hour days. The management team was always in a fantastic mood and had no trouble helping fellow employees. The environment was always friendly and people – more... loved to be at work. I learnt a wide variety of different dishes which helped progress my knowledge of the culinary industry. The most enjoyable part of my job while working there would have to be the people as everyone were willing to lend a hand or teach you something new which brightened the overall atmosphere. – less

Fun
Kitchen partner (Former Employee), Vancouver, BCApril 21, 2014
Pros: good food
Cons: exhausting
Nice people, I like the energy between the people that feeling of rush and getting things done by the minute. I learned to be aware of many things at the same time, you know keeping the ears open at the same time focusing on the specific task and looking around for some future demands, being smart by noticing what would be more efficient to get the – more... same result faster etc.. The hardest part of this job is honestly endurance. being on my feet 24/ 7 running left and right carrying loads of kitchen tools, keeping up to speed. – less

Productive place with a young crowd
Annonymous (Current Employee), AnnonymousApril 16, 2014
Pros: great tips
Cons: late nights
Cactus Club was a great place to work. The tips were great and the staff were, for the most part, hard working. The managers took the time to ensure that everyone performed to their best abilities. Job advancement was a plus, placing hard work over seniority.

Hardest part of the job were the late nights and loud music. The vibe works for the environment, – more... but not a scene for everyone. The crowd could be hit or miss, and the conversations can be quite upsetting. A lot of men there for the pretty girls.

The most enjoyable part of the job was the interaction with great guests. Most of the people were exceptional to talk to and work with. – less

Fun and fast paced enviroment
Server/Bartender (Former Employee), Calgary, ABApril 14, 2014
Pros: 50% off food, you get to work with your best friends
Cons: never knowing an end time
-Starts of steady and escalates to a busy but productive day.
-I have learned that patience is key in this industry and when the customer leaves happy you know you have done your job well.
-Management is understanding an very helpful when is comes to anything to do with their staff. They are a little disorganized at times but i feel as if that happens – more... in any work place.
-The ladies and gentlemen that work there make it feel like a second home, they've always got your back.
-Names! Faces change frequently in the business so that can be a difficult part of the job
-The people you meet, they're are always characters when you serve and that is one of the best parts of the job – less

Good place to start for any cooks or servers
Dishwasher (Current Employee), Kelowna, BCMay 1, 2013
Pros: 50% off food on work days, free drinks (non-alcoholic), resturants always in need of work.
Cons: busy hours and early cut times.
Easy to get hired on washing dishes, but working to gain promotion requires stamina and full time hours.
Work is hard and monotonous and fast-paced when busy
This Job has taught me to be assertive and responsible.

excellent job to work at. They really try hard to keep themselves in the top 50 places to work in BC
Expeditor/Barback (Former Employee), Abbotsford, BCFebruary 17, 2013
Pros: free meals and great tips
Cons: during a dead morning shift you had niothing to do.
I loved this job. everyone worked so well together even on a busy saturday night. working the bar back i would usually start around 9 am or 6pm and work till closing around 1am. all night i was stocking booze in the front so the bar team didn't have to go get it themselves. changing kegs at first was the hardest part but after a couple it gets so easy. – more... the tips were also awesome, i walked away with 2.5% of whatever the bar top made. – less

Fun work place and provides good management
Hostess/Expeditor (Current Employee), Calgary, albertaNovember 18, 2012
Pros: half off food
I would go to work and everyone would be friendly and all of us co workers would be friendly and get along and have a good time, i've learned throughout my experience with cactus how to engage people more and how to really get to talk to people and pay attention to detail. The management was really good and you have the chance to advance within the – more... company if you chose so. The hardest part of the job is to wear heels for 8 hours straight and the most enjoyable is getting to know people you meet within the restaurant and the customers. – less
