Fun Workplace
Waitress (Current Employee), KitchenerMarch 27, 2014
Pros: tips, friends, discounts on food
Cons: long busy hours
East Side Marios is a great place to work. My typical day at work starts off with making sure my section is clean and set for customers. I have learned different communication styles which enable me to up-sale an item on the menu. Management has always been good to me. Since I am in school, they work around my hours and give me days off when needed. – more... The scheduling and pay are always on time. My co-workers make my job even more fun. They help out when needed and I have become really close with some of them. The hardest part of my job is having too many tables at once but in the restaurant business that is something I had to get used to. There is nothing bad I would say about my job at East Side Marios. – less

I couldn't complain too much, It was my first big job. I came in about once or twice a week for about 3 hours a night. Every one was really sweet and fun to talk to.

Server (Former Employee), Burlington, ONFebruary 17, 2014
I worked at East Side's for over a year. I loved the job, I loved going into work. Serving the guests was a great experience, and I learned a lot about Serving. It is a challenging environment in the way you will always be busy and constantly have to think on your feet. I believe this is the kind of environment any beginning server should start in because – more... it will teach you a lot. – less

Pros: discounts
Cons: not enough hours
Working here was my first experience at having a part time job, it was a great place to start off all though i did not work there for that long of a time it was a great stepping stone into what work life would be like teaching me many tasks with making me come out of my shy self and making me more of a independent person that i am today.

Dishwasher (Former Employee), Cranbrook, BCApril 27, 2013
Pros: free meals when you worked
Cons: you get super dirty
My typical day at work was washing dishes, sweepinp, mopping, weighing out food amounts. what ive learnd from this job is you have to be very careful in a kitchen with food and the dishes. my boss was flexible on hours and when you worked. my co-workers were all very nice people, now onto the hardest part of my job was probably washing the chicken rotisserie – more... and the most enjoyable part was the free pop i got. – less

Server / Bartender (Former Employee), Huntsville, ONFebruary 27, 2013
Enjoyed the fast paced environment and guest interaction, the friendly team made the long hours seem shorter. The most enjoyable part of the job was bar tending, although it demands a lot of multitasking.

The most challenging part of the job was the unfortunate hours, however working evenings and weekends is expected in the hospitality industry.

Hostess/Server (Former Employee), Oshawa, ONJanuary 25, 2013
Pros: tips
Cons: uncoperative staff
What I love about working in a fast pasted restaurant, is all the different kind of people you encounter throughout the day and how no two days are the same. Yes, its a given that some days are not the best, however making the best out of what your given is important. This is where I had to learn how to deal with high levels of stress wile maintaining – more... a friendly environment. These stresses involved co-workers, superversiors and customers and was a lot to take on. However, as a quick and agile worker, I caaught on fast and obtained the necessary skills and experience to make a proefficient server at a next restaurant! – less

Head Prep Cook (Former Employee), Dartmouth, NSJanuary 1, 2013
Pros: friendly work environment
Cons: little benefits, low wages, low hours, horrible management
Everyone you worked with was a friend/family, which helped for great teamwork and overall atmosphere of the workplace. I would start all of the stoves, friers, presses, and lights first thing in the morning, then as the line cooks arrived we would spend the whole day cooking, stocking, and prepping as a team, helping out anyone who needed it (station – more... jumping). The management was horrible due to a constant change in management members and the managers they hired had little to no experience. The hardest part of the job was the struggle to get hours, as well as the no benefits/ no incentives. It is not a permanent job for anyone who has established family, dependents, or a mortgage to pay. – less

Line Cook (Current Employee), bowmanville, OntarioOctober 11, 2012
Pros: 50% off food when working
Cons: sometimes 3 hour shifts which are not long enough
East Side Marios is a fast pace work environment, especially on weekends.
I have learned many different cooking skills juring my 3 years at the restaurant.
I enjoy the people that I work with as they are mostly relaxed and hard working.
The hardest part of my job is keeping servers happy by making their food as quick as possible.
My favourite part of – more... my job is working with food and making my own food after shifts. – less

Line Cook, server, bartender, supervisor (Current Employee), Markham, VaughanSeptember 21, 2012
Pros: 50% off food
Cons: unlimited salad, soup, bread and pop.
A typical day of work involves greeting and serving guests in both an efficient as well as enjoyable manner. The goal is for them to leave with a positive experience with hopes that they return in the future. I have learned that there are all types of people in the world and numerous ways to deal with situations in and out of the work place. Management – more... has always been there to fall back on offering help at all times. They ensure guests are part of a positive, productive environment. The hardest part of the job is dealing with those who don't understand the rules of the restaurant in terms of pricing etc. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping my clients understand what they previously misunderstood as well as knowing that customers leave happy with the intention of returning again in the future. – less

Server (Former Employee), Etobicoke, ONSeptember 16, 2012
Pros: flexible schedules
Cons: cheap customers
Enjoyable work environment, great experience. East Side Mario's had a great managing team and brought a lot employee initiatives to keep performance and sales up. They were understanding of my scheduling due to the fact that I was in school full-time and were able to accommodate my shifts.
