Great money earning job, terrible work quality life
Server (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 20 February 2017
Great place to work if you want a temporary position that will earn you lots of money. Not great to stay at for longer than that as work drama, manager drama is very common within this kind of work place.
Server / Bartender (Former Employee) – Prince George, BC – 28 December 2016
Consistently busy, serving numerous tables while taking food and drink orders. I learned strong communication skills between co-workers and management. In my opinion I thought management could have improved the way they acted towards their employees. Sometimes employees were not treated fairly or were blamed for unforeseen events. I loved the co-workers. They made the working environment a much more desirable place to be in. Hardest part of the job was trying to manage my time wisely between many tables at one time. Most enjoyable part of the job was creating an atmosphere to allow customers to return on a daily basis. Getting to know customers on a personal level was a great feeling.
Not enough hours. Didn't know when we would be off
Cook (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 28 October 2016
This is a nice environment to work. Everyone is commited to serve food with excelent level of quality. I learned all the recipes and work in may stations. The chefs are experienced and you have many room to promotion.
Fun working environment which included other students like myself
Cook/Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 15 May 2016
Assisted the cooks in the kitchen with meal preparation, and also washed the dishes when needed of me. Learned to work as fast as possible so as to not fall behind since people are constantly ordering food. Fun working environment, composed mainly of other students.
like-minded individuals who are striving to grow and learn as employees and people outside of the workplace
Server (Current Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 15 May 2016
Each day we will come into work, check our sections for the current day, and then we will proceed to wait until guests come into the restaurant to be served. Throughout the shift, we will be conversing with guests, multitasking and remembering many different things we must complete, all while being composed and elegant under pressure. At the end of the shift, we will be tasked to complete a duty before we are able to leave, once this is finished and we have checked out with our fellow peers, then we are able to go!
I have learned to be able to handle myself very well under pressure, as well as becoming more coordinated with balancing heavy objects on my arms/hand.
Everyone in our restaurant is very friendly and it has come to feel like a family! It is very nice because the employees are all around the same age, so it is easy to make friends and relate to others. I would highly recommend working for Earls!
Lounge Server (Current Employee) – Earls Willow Park – 7 March 2016
Great staff, great hours, great atmosphere. By far the best environment I have worked in. The hours allow me to get things done during the day, that I otherwise would not be able to, and the management team is very accommodating.
Food Prep/ Line Cook (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 August 2015
A typical day at work at Earls would be.. I come in at 6am-3pm, start prepping food for the day/night/week that we need until 11 am. Then I would go on the line and cook for guests. I learned knife skills, how to properly cut food, and the quickest ways to prep and store food!
My manager was the best! He was always positive, and always helping out everyone, he always put in long hours even if he was running off of 2 hours of sleep!
My co workers were my best friends, we were all like a little family. it was awesome because I was away from my family.
Hardest part of the job would be I didnt have any kitchen experience at all, so I had to learn everything brand new.
Most enjoyable part of my job was always learning new things! I learned something new everyday.
Line Cook/Prep Cook (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 17 August 2015
I really enjoyed working at earls because i really enjoyed the culture and location of where the Earls i was working at was. i liked the pressure and pace of the way the restaurant would flow. The hardest part of the job was closing the restaurant and preparing for the next day.
Hostess (Former Employee) – Fort Mcmurray, AB – 10 August 2015
As a hostess a typical day at work for me was being at the front of the restaurant to greet and seat people. Doing this I learned to communicate well with people. The management was great, friendly and easy to communicate with. The hardest part of the job was trying to please every customer the best we could. The most enjoyable part of the job was the different activities and parties that were held by Earls.
