Manager (Former Employee) – St. Marys, ON – 23 January 2017
I had a bad experience working for this company - was given little direction as a manager and the person who was my supervisor was either an alcoholic or abused prescription drugs. Was fired for absolutely no reason.
Associate (Former Employee) – St. Marys, ON – 26 September 2016
St.marys store was horrible the training was bad.They need to change the management team or maybe re train the on how to a run a store. The money was bad, communication was lacking. Head office always laid blame on you.
Cook, Key Holder (Former Employee) – Burford, ON – 30 September 2014
A typical day at work would include getting straight to work. You walk in, take off your coat and straight to work. Work included prepping toppings for the cook, prepping dough for the dinner hours, cooking, cleaning, answering phones, tending to customers, retrieving pizza's from the back of the oven before they burned etc. As this restaurant offered more than just pizza, many customers ordered more than just pizza. The cook had to balance her time for cooking each item and making sure the food was all ready at relatively the same time. The hardest part of this job is being new. Learning everything that needs to happen in this place while being under constant pressure is not easy. The most enjoyable part of this job is when you are on a roll and everything is running smoothly and as planned. When this happens, working here is very enjoyable.
fast paced environment teaches you to work efficiently under pressure
Cashier/Cook (Former Employee) – Walkerton, ON – 6 April 2014
At Godfathers a typical shift included: cleaning the lobby, counters and washrooms, washing dishes, prepping pizza and other foods following health procedures and guidelines, taking orders and relaying them to the cook or making them myself, answering phones etc. I learned to be quick on my feet and how to greet all customers with a smile. I also learned how to be more sociable and too work independently for long periods of time. Management are very friendly and very helpful. If you are new they help you till you have a hang of how things work even thought they expect you to catch on quickly. I had gotten along very well with my co-workers they were hard workers and know how to get things done. I believe that the hardest part of the job was dealing with very grumpy customers. The most memorable part of the job was working with my co-workers, I call many of them my friends now and talk on a regular basis.
worker (Current Employee) – st Mary's – 19 November 2013
No direction given, interviewed for management at 13 $ hired for minimum not managenent but wasn't told this. 45 min commute not worth the pay. Questions always answered with 'that's how corporate wants it' bad food safety and very dirty. Will be leaving once claim is in the works.
On the plus side customers were nice and making pizza is kind of fun.
Prep cook, Front Cash (Former Employee) – Cayuga, ON – 6 March 2013
I would prepare dough for the pizzas, Clean up any messes and at the ends of my shifts before closing. Cooked and cut pizzas and boxed them for customers. I learned how to make dough, and use the machine to do this. Management wasn't that great, but that's also because they were new and didn't know everything about being a manager yet. My co-workers were very easy to get along with, and fun to work with. The hardest part of the job was working alone at night with larger orders. The easiest part and most enjoyable, was working in the morning making dough.
