Senior Cook (Current Employee) – ottawa – 26 April 2012
Moxies is a good place to work good for young staff to make some money and experience a safe kitchen environment. The food we have is very good and the staff work hard. Management does as much as there allowed to make us as staff happy.
Sous Chef (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 21 May 2017
They most thing they concern about is hitting their FAKE number( ticket time, food cost.....etc). Kitchen is the dirtiest out of all moxies i'heve worked with. Management keeps throwing more work on staffs without considering staffing level and proper training.the executive chef doesnt know what he is doing so does the chef at moxies squareone. Employees not in the management team have zero benefit. Yes, zero, not even one meal a shift. I wouldnt recommanded my worst enemy to work there
Long hours, dirty kitchen, lazy management, zero benefits
Server (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 15 March 2017
I was super stoked to work here, the staff that works along side you are amazing, loving, helpful people! However, management is very unclear for their expectations of you, makes promises they can not keep and seem to share a different vision than what they tell you. All in all moxies management is very unprofessional. I was very disappointed with how working there turned out.
Cook/Prep (Former Employee) – Prince George, BC – 5 January 2017

Server/Bartender (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 12 December 2016
I love the craziness of the restaurant. It was a fun upbeat place with high turnovers. I had great staff to work with. Ive learned a lot of life lessons an appreciative of all the responsibilities given to me. lively working environment with constant hotel clients which made it difficult at times cause there may be language barriers.
I had alot of seniority which gave me more opportunities
Sous Chef (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 23 November 2016
I honestly would not recommend this place if you are looking for a job. The kitchen is filthy. They are way more concerned with hitting their numbers than keeping the kitchen clean. Training is very poor. Can't keep staff. If you are salary manager you are working 10-12 hour days. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Look for a job somewhere else. I used to like eating at Moxie's but after working there for a couple of weeks I will never eat at Moxie's again. Filthy, dirty kitchens.
Prep Cook (Former Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 15 October 2016
two teenage supervisors who have a huge attitude problem do not know how to speak to people chef is a two face force you to work 12-14 hours a day everyday can I find people to work there 3 people quitting in one week would not recommend working at moxies newmarket Ontario yeah he's a good example of management first paycheck you get uniform supposed to be deducted did not happen agreement was made $14 an hour first two weeks was okay second two weeks was $14 50 hrs that was good for me after a 12-hour shift I did not bake cookies I was fired
Line Cook (Former Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – 4 September 2016
Poor pay, awful hours, rude management who doesn't train properly, servers think they're more important than they are, no references after leaving (so it looks like you had no job for all those months you worked there.)
No safety standard, food safe is not practiced.
Harassment, serious racism, anti-LGBT attitudes & bullying are a big issue.
This is where you'd work if you kind of gave up in life. One guy everyone makes fun of worked there since the opening and has never been given a raise.
Your skill and experience are not only wasted here, it's a liability that can get you fired because being a good cook exposes the bad cooks and makes you a threat to their work life.
Good place to learn and develop interests in cooking
PREPERATION & LINE COOK (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 5 February 2016
Moxie's menu is simple and straight forward, they feature the seasons and are consistent with their dishes. The crew is great to work with and they will treat you respect, if you respond in kind. I learn many things from Moxie's and developed my interest in cooking and learned many different techniques that are useful to me to this day. I enjoyed working at Moxie's mainly because of the crew, management and the easy to learn menus.
Hostess (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 23 May 2014
Moxies was great, fast paced and friendly! The only problem i had was the shoes! They were terrible gave you cuts and blisters and you got no sympathy from management regardless how long you had been working.
Server (Former Employee) – London, ON – 5 December 2013
Horrible. I worked there for over a year and can't remember the last time I was given honest encouragement and felt appreciated. If your guests treat you like garbage, they offer them a gift card and apologize for their bad experience.. And don't even think they will add auto gratuity to your parties 8+. Even though results would be incredible for the server, it isn't benefitting them at all so they won't allow it. If you don't bat your eye lashes at the managers they don't give two damns about you and treat you like you're replaceable. They've had hostesses working there for over two years that deserve to be moved up to server when they are looking to hire but instead they hire servers without any restaurant experience and keep those hostesses right where they are. It never appeared to me at all like they have their staffs best interest in mind. If you work a double shift equalling over 8 hours you are entitled to a half hour lunch break and two fifteen minute breaks.. Do you think they care if you work all the way through without eating? You're sadly mistaken if you do. I would not recommend anyone to work here it is a stressful and absolutely rediculous place to be employed.
Lounge waitress and bartender (Current Employee) – Brampton, Ontario – 4 March 2012
Moxie's classic Grill was a great start for me in the service industry. With such a high traffic environment, I learned to handle multiple tables, bartend and plan patio parties. I have met many wonderful people and have returning guest every day. Our staff works hard as a team and we're always thinking of ways to become better.
