Your standard mid end restaurant franchise
Shift Leader (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 September 2016
Work here if you want to get overworked with little regard to how you're treated. As a cook most of us are used to brutal hours and conditions but this place took the cake. This is one of those restaurants where people work for free to even achieve their basic job duties, and there is a culture of taking advantage of their employees. Not only that, I witnessed very shady firing practices in my tenure there.
If there is a reason to work there it is the people on the ground, some of the most fun individuals I have met here. Most of their chefs are sourced within the company from the cooks and there is actual upwards mobility if you are part of the clique. If you're not, good luck.
Their wages are actually some of the fairest I have seen though, so if you're all about money and don't mind getting involved in politics, you might like the place.
