Productive and a fun place to work
Waitress (Former Employee), Camrose, ABJuly 22, 2015
Pros: Amazing atmosphere
Cons: Not enough hours
I loved having to go to work. The environment was so welcoming and amazing. I have never liked working so much until I worked at East Side Mario's. I learnt that everyone has a job in the work place even – more... though you might be titled as the same job. Management was crazy good. Very nice people and if something went wrong, thy handled it right away. Hardest part of the job was when people didn't do their duties and left the other workers left with doing it. It was very frustrating. I enjoyed everything about working there. It was very sad to leave. – less

Hostess (Current Employee), Dundas, ONMay 7, 2015
Pros: Tips and gratuities.
Cons: Not enough hours, when the hours were long no lunch breaks provided.
Great staff and environment, but not enough hours were provided in order for me to support myself. The typical shift was two hours long. There is no air conditioning in the store so in the summer days the heat becomes excruciating.

Line Cook (Former Employee), Oakville, ONSeptember 3, 2014
Pros: great fellow employees.
Cons: long hours.
At East Side Mario's I advanced from being a dishwasher to a chef. It was an extremely enjoyable job but is not something I personally would want to pursue a career in. The hours were extremely long and I was required to work every weekend. Overall the job was extremely enjoyable, however I would not want to work as a chef again.

Hostess (Former Employee), Calgary, ABAugust 3, 2014
The management was very understanding and approachable, I learned how to better deal with customers and a variety of different types of co-workers. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with customers during the busiest times of the day, but in the end, I learned that team work was my best bet.

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 – more... 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. 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

Hostess (Current Employee), Peterborough, ONMarch 23, 2014
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 it will teach you a lot.

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 – more... 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 and the most enjoyable part was the free pop i got. – less
