Hostess & Server (Former Employee) – Peace River, AB – 8 February 2018
A typical day working at Mr Mikes would start off with our pre-shift meeting led by on duty manager. This would be going over our specials for the day, what items were currently out of stock, and expectations for the shift. Then while we waited for the rush to start we would make sure all of our pepper and salt mills were full, fresh coffee was brewing, dishes were stacked, etc. Then once the dinner rush started we focused on our tables as well as trying to help our coworkers. The management at this establishment was professional but also casual enough that you felt comfortable chatting with your mangers about day to day life. It definitely had it's ups and downs, just like any job does. Overall I am happy I was able to be apart of the little Mr Mikes family and experience the ways of the serving industry.
Waitress & Manager (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 6 February 2018
It's a customer service job, so it definitely has bad days. However, the staff at the Regina locations are some of the most amazing people you will ever meet. Even on the most hectic nights, the staff works well as a team and the management is really understanding in terms of scheduling. It has been my home for three years and counting.
Server (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 31 January 2018
A typical work day involves familiarizing myself with my section and helping stock for the shift. It overall is a good company to work for. Sometimes find it immature and cliquey. I love interacting with the public.
Server/Expediter (Former Employee) – Chilliwack, BC – 5 January 2018
I had roughly 6 different managers while working at Mr. Mikes, all of which were extremely friendly and great to be with. The workers were all very nice and all seemed to enjoy being there. The environment Mr. Mikes set out was great for anyone wanting to join the restaurant business.
PREP/LINE COOK (Current Employee) – Prince George, BC – 7 November 2017
always challenges each day, have it be properly enforcing FIFO habits or keeping the busy hands persistence. learned how to execute time management in a efficient and sanitary manner, while prioritizing various tasks needing be done for the day. communication amoungst leaders could be better. Overall atmosphere of peoples attitude towards the business can be uplifting. The days workload is hardly efficient if the workers aren't compliant with one another, always a smoother day when a great deal of team work is put into action.
great tipout when lowered labour costs, awarded staff parties when customer satisfaction is at a high

Server (Former Employee) – Hinton, AB – 11 October 2017
Excellent establishment to work in, loved my job and created amazing relationships with my fellow co-workers! Management was fairly poor but I got by because of my love for the industry. Other than that, it is an amazing company to work for.
Supervisor/Bartender/Server (Former Employee) – Prince Albert, SK – 6 October 2017
My experience with Mr. Mikes was overall satisfactory. Management was willing to flex on my schedule and would work with me to find a good balance to my work weeks. The unfortunate part of that job was the high staff turnover, both staff and management, so it was difficult to set down roots and really get to know my team. The clientele were excellent, really never had any issues with people. All in all I enjoyed my time there.
Lead Hostess (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 26 September 2017
Working here was great, front of house staff are friendly and helpful. Hours were never an issue, management is very accommodating. Bust nights SUCKED, due to customers and the regular restaurant industry issues. Major downside, kitchen staff were often unfriendly/rude when under pressure or in general to workers.
Great people to work with, just not enough hours to go around at the C
Hostess/Expo (Current Employee) – Camrose, AB – 27 February 2017
Wonderful management and employees, the Camrose location is a beautiful workspace. Very friendly atmosphere. Unfortunately the Camrose location isn't as busy as it used to be and the restaurant can't offer up many hours.
