Line/Prep Cook (Former Employee) – Whitby, ON – 6 December 2017
It was a great place to work. my typical day was i start at 11, and it gets very busy depending on the day, so i had very little time to do my prep list, it would be busy till 2 then i had 1 hour to do 15 things on my prep list.
The people in the workplace were really nice but the job it self(dish washing) wasn't really a fun thing to do for 8 hours with no break
Dishwasher/Prep Cook (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 4 December 2017
Overall as I said people were really nice to me but dishwashing wasn't my favorite activity and that's the reason that i quit the job.Every day, I would enter the restaurant, set up the dishwashing station and start washing dishes for 8 hours with no breaks and I had to help the other members of the kitchen when the dishwashing station was clean.The hardest part of the job was the fact that I had no breaks at all during the 8 hours of work and dishwashing wasn't an easy job especially in busy days.In my opinion, the people at milestones were really nice to me especially the chefs who didn't yell at me even once.In my workplace, I learned many things such as, how to be a team player, how to be a responsible person and how to manage and set up my time properly.
I learned some teamwork skills, how to manage my time and how to be a responsible person
I didn't have the opportunity to actually communicate with other people
Line Cook (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 November 2017
When coming into work everything depends on the day, everyday it is something new and nothing is ever the same. The people there are extremely friendly and they care about how your doing, but it is always super busy there.
LINE COOK (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 December 2016
milestone's has a fun, enjoyable and fast paced but there is no room for growth, every one is at a standstill with no way to move up. the co-workers are great, management is lacking organisation and front of house isn't very experienced. nothing is made fresh which bothers me as a cook who loves food and enjoys cooking
Hostess (Former Employee) – West Vancouver, BC – 16 September 2016
Hostessing can be overwhelming at times but whenever it got busy, the servers helped out management helped out. Most enjoyable part was greeting guests and making sure their experience was good. Schedule definitely needed some fine tuning, we were understaffed due to renovations however management should have considered hiring one or two more hostesses part time. All in all, a really good experience and definitely love the new style of this restaurant. I miss my Milestones family, they were without a doubt the best!
got half off of meals
1 shift would sometimes turn into 2 split shifts with no warning
Great atmosphere, stellar management, great coworkers
Hostess (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 12 March 2016
This is a place I look forward to spending my workday. While I have been in this industry for a while, and am familiar with the ins and outs, I am constantly finding ways to improve myself and take on more tasks than called for in my job description, ways to improve my prioritization skills and become more confident in my abilities with plans to take my career to the next level. I admire and learn much from the management in the way they lead, communicate and relate to their staff. They seem to genuinely care about us as people, ask and expect us to be productive, but are fair, reasonable and kind. My coworkers range in personalities and ages, but I enjoy interacting and getting to know them. The most difficult thing to work with is the occasional employee with a poor attitude who obviously doesn't want to be there, or complains about their job. I enjoy long hours, working hard, a fast pace, hardworking and positive coworkers that become like family, management that sees potential and helps you achieve it, and coming home at the end of a long day, knowing that it was worth it, looking forward to the next work day.
Supervising Shift Server (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 January 2016
There is never a moment in which there is nothing to do. You can always clean, set up what will be needed in the future, there are always guests and you always need to be aware of your surroundings. I've learned to work with every different kind of person and how to successfully communicate with every kind of guest. Management is there for you and always has your back. Your co-workers become your second family. The hardest part is not knowing what you're going to make that day, sure the harder you work the more you should make. But the industry itself is highly unpredictable.
Server / Bartender (Current Employee) – Toronto – 5 September 2013
The service industry is definitely a fun place to be in, but in my eyes, temporarily. Its Constant customer service, and utilizing your sales techniques. The Co-workers are great fun, and you have to work in a team setting to get things done efficiently.
