Host/Server (Current Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 6 June 2016
A typical day involved dealing a lot with customers and ensuring they enjoyed their stay at Perkins. Management was very good, flexible with problems that presented themselves. All the coworkers were very welcoming into the job, felt like a family. I learned all about how to deal with customer service problems and how to give an outstanding experience for customers at our establishment.
Line Cook, Supervisor, Kitchen Manager (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 18 May 2016
After handling multiple corporate changes, and differences of opinions between each of them and after 6 years of cooking and 3 years of supervisory and management duties I felt that it was best if I left the company.
A double kitchen line set up is a very comfortable kitchen
A general lack of interest in following standards and making sure guest satisdfaction is met

Server/Supervisor (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 29 February 2016
Working at Perkins was great. I always enjoyed going to work and the atmosphere was always positive. A typical day at work would start off with cleaning and prepping for my shift. I would usually serve the dinner rush and then close the restaurant at the end of the night.
Hostess (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 8 February 2016
A typical day at Perkins, was sometimes long hours, sometimes it was a quick day, but i always met new people, and got to learn stories about people. I learnt how to be a hosts, and how to greet people in a busy restaurant at the time.
Meeting New people, learning new things in a work placement.
Long hours, sometimes very boring when no one comes in.
Waitress (Former Employee) – Medicine Hat, AB – 27 June 2015
Worked here for 3 years would still be working here but I had to move. My typical day at work was busy for the most part. I enjoyed most of my days. Staff was great to work with and I loved serving our guests and make sure they leave with a good experience when coming in for dinner. Hardest part of my job was serving tables that I could just not get a good reaction out of. Most enjoyable part was the people I was surrounded with every day.
Perkins: A great place to be; for the customers and the workers.
Line Cook (Current Employee) – Medicine Hat, AB – 4 May 2015
Working at Perkins has given me cooking as a life skill, which I will thankfully, never lose. The atmosphere can be very busy, but there is always an air of lightheartedness and humor which makes it enjoyable to work there. Management is always in control, keeping cooks and servers alike in line. The hardest part of the job would be coping with stress during a rush, just trying to get all of the food out and to the customers without having them wait too long. The best part of the job is, by far, the people. The humor and fun they bring to the kitchen makes it all worth while.

Hostess (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 25 January 2014
The hours are flexible and my co-workers are fun to work with. I have been fully trained on serving with all different sized trays. Something I had never done before. The management has been very good to me trying to accommodate me with as many shifts as possible. I love working with the customers the most. My regulars are great! The hardest part of the job is that I don:t get enough shifts. I would like to have full time work which they can:t give to me at this time.
I've never had a job where I can truly say that I enjoyed it yet. It's sad to see that someone would tell you that if you're not in the "A" team and not up to par then they don't want you in their team.
