Cashier/Hostess (Current Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 30 May 2014
This work place provides excellent team communication and corroboration. It starts with the host seating the guests and warming them up to the menu to give them the best experience and it ends with the cashier sending them off with a positive attitude looking forward to seeing them again. I very much enjoyed working for this company.
Server/Bartender (Current Employee) – Aurora, ON – 15 June 2017
The management and staff make the place easy and fun to go to work. Management is very flexible and accommodating to my schedule and needs. Glad that there is never a dull moment and always something that needs to be done. Best place I've worked at so far!

Server (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 31 May 2017
Working at East Side Mario's had its pros and its cons. It was a place where everyone got along and would help others out, though it was a place with poor management. The hardest part of the job was working with bosses who often seemed to not want to help customers to the best of their abillities.
Server/ Expo (Former Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 18 May 2017
I got to work at East Side Mario's in Peterborough while studying at university and it was really great. I loved each and every single one of my co-workers, and my GM's were fun and energetic, always making sure that everything was running smoothly and efficiently. They created a really great working environment, and were happy to accommodate for school/ exam conflicts. Even when we were extremely busy, it was always manageable because we had a great team assembled. I was always in for a fun day at work.
Discounted meals for staff, guaranteed hours, great starting point for service career
Server/Bartender (Current Employee) – Moncton, NB – 10 May 2017
I loved working at ESM. I got good hours and it was really like working with your family. It is a high paced busy restaurant so you need to be on top of your game for the all you can eat, bread, soup and salad!!!
Kitchen Supervisor (Former Employee) – Collingwood, ON – 10 May 2017
Learning the different positions and how they inter-relate to the whole output of the requested meals, is very challenging. When all is running smoothly and the team is functioning as a whole there is no better experience.
Fun and fast paced workplace, with free food and beverages as a work perc
Dishwasher/Kitchen Helper (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 8 May 2017
For people with asthma, this job isn't recommended as I found myself in a lot of situations where if I stopped working, I would get piled up with way too many dishes then closing the restaurant would take forever. However, all the people are friendly and the food is great
Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 4 May 2017
The most enjoyable part of this job was working with others to get the job complete. The hours were flexible and the co-workers were friendly and helpful. The least enjoyable thing about the job was the constant pile of dishes coming through the kitchen, there was no feeling of completion as dishes were always in motion.
Hostess/Expo (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 2 May 2017
The people I work with at East Side Mario's are very friendly. They are understanding when someone cannot come into work and they are pretty flexible if someone has a commitment and cannot find someone to take a shift. Everybody helps each other and the managers try to get to know the staff.
BARTENDER, SERVER (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 1 May 2017
Schedule isn't out till Sunday night every week. Shifts constantly canceled last minute. Major turnover makes working difficult with always having more new staff than senior. Missing tip outs by supervisors. Dash and dine scams by G.M. Drug use by almost all kitchen staff slowing down speed of service.
Part-time - Hostess (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 29 April 2017
My typical work day includes greet customer, take them to them to appropriate table, and clear, clean, and set tables. I've learned how to work in a team, use time wisely, work fast while doing things the correct way. Management changed constantly but soon settled on someone who managed the team accordingly. Working in a team was not hard for me to learn. Many of my co-workers were very friendly and were easy to talk to. the hardest part of this job was dealing with rude customers on a busy night, it was not easy to deal with as I was trying my hardest to get things done fast while costumers were yelling at me. To every con there is a pro, the most enjoyable part this job was defiantly meeting new people and creating memories with my co-workers.
Food Prep/Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 25 April 2017
The owners have an attitude that makes everyone not want to be there. They constantly complain to management which will then lead to them yelling at the workers, therefore not making them not want to be there. A lot of the staff are constantly compiling about everything. Not trying to bash the company, but its the truth after working there for 5 years.
everyone is miserable there, not fun to be around the people.
