Line Coach (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 14 October 2017
I had great days when I was working at Joeys. I would stay longer, but cooking was not my thing. I was working at kitchen for 9 years, and I can say this, Joey in Sherwood Park was my definitely number one choice.
Sous Chef (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 22 November 2017
If you are a strong employee you will not go far in this company. You have to be a good bull-shiter that can walk around pretending to be a "leader" False hopes of raises for those who actually work hard. Everyone that works the hardest makes less than those who don't . You deal with non experienced cooks all the time.
The partners aka the non management staff
Can't make commitments they make or promises. Head strung "Chefs"
Server and Guest Service Team (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 2 November 2017
Fast paced work environment, high standards with a large emphasis with multitasking. Lots of knowledge to learn about food and liquor. Customer experience is the most important value within this business.
Cook (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 5 September 2017
-Long hours for minimum wage -Non accommodating -lots to learn if you don't mind being payed minimum wage for maximum effort - Pay for your own food there on shift - No breaks -McDonald's pays more starting than Joey does after working there for a year
Everything except co workers, Leaders are the worst, Labor Law breakers

Great location was, my first kitchen job out of highschool. Taught lots about cooking. Gave me the skills to move forward in this kind of career. I would recommended this place to newcomers to the culinary industrie.
Cook (Current Employee) – Don Mills, ON – 2 March 2017
Misleading Company Mislead many times by management. I was told I would be paid a certain amount, and upon signing papers, I was told I would be paid less than minimum wage on paper plus "tip out". No breaks, LONG days past scheduled work times. No work life balance.
Guest Service Leader/ Server (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 20 December 2016
working for Joeys was the worst experience that I have had. The women I worked with were ridiculous, and the managers even more incompetent. Putting 20 yr old girls as a manager is not a good idea. I have worked in the service industry for many years, joeys was by far the worst company i have ever had the displeasure of working for.
