Management (Current Employee) – Langley, BC – 18 February 2017
I started at the olivegarden in January 25, 2005. I started working in back of the house , fully trained in all stations within three months. I moved in the front of the house within seven years. I was offered management shortly after. I continued my career here because there was room of advancement.
It was a very fun job with lots of opportunity and lots of hours.

Bartender (Former Employee) – Langley BC – 11 December 2012
This company constantly places Ads for Bartenders. They will even setup an interview and then inform you that they don't hire Bartenders but only promote from the floor. Then they offer a Servers job. If you are a professional Bartender don't answer the phone. Don't waste your time.
Server (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 28 May 2015
Servers have small three table sections, however with all of the refills this was enough. Very high volume restaurant, usually a wait so your section was always full. I learned a lot about multitasking as my tables would always need refills at the same time. I also learned a lot about wine and how to present and sample it.
Hostess (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 19 April 2012
The managment at this job was great. I never had issues with any of my managers. My co-workers were always great to have around they made my shifts fly by. Most enjoyable part of this job was interacting with the customers and seeing them leave satisfied after great service and food.
Server (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 13 January 2013
Shifts were average length. I learned a lot in product knowledge. Most of the managers were excellent (especially our General Manager at my time of employment) co-workers were great! hardest part of the job were unrealistic guests. Most enjoyable part would be the industry itself and other serving staff.
