Fun workplace with poor morals
Food and Beverage Server (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 18 September 2014
Although the staff and customers are enjoyable, the goals of the restaurant, expressed through female workplace uniforms, seems immoral and sexist. Males are required to wear pants, long-sleeved shirts, while females must wear extremely tight, low-cut tops, shorts, skirts on the patio, lounge and bar areas. In many minds, this leads to lack of respect for women as human beings, and rather decorations to ensnare male customers.
Not to mention: Pricey menus.
This restaurant also uses a Dine and Dash fund; each server must pay 1.00 per shift, to add to the fund. If any customers decided to leave without paying, or leave without tipping (and there wasn't an obvious reason why), management may use the fund to pay you a 10-15% tip and the bill. Management is quite difficult when it comes to paying from this fund, although they held a party to spend the copious amounts of funds - raised by the staff itself! It was explained to some staff by outside members of the public, that this is in fact illegal. Nothing has changed.
