Very positive environment with excellent co-workers.
Pita Pit staff (Former Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 19 February 2018
At Pita Pit, I would usually make pitas for the customers and prepared the food in the kitchen. I would also help with cleaning and dishes. I learned how to use the cash register and how to maintain a quick service restaurant. I also learned how to balance my school, personal and work life properly. Most importantly I learned how to get a long and work along side my co-workers and customers. I got to know the Pita Pit staff very closely and had a great work experience with them. They were always positive and made working there a great learning experience. My managers and co-workers listened to my opinions and treated me very fairly. The hardest part of the job was to make sure everything was done before the end of the night, especially on busy days. The best part of working at pita pit was my fantastic co-workers and customers. Almost everybody I came across were very nice.
Cashier, grill , front station (Former Employee) – Saint John, NB – 19 February 2018
Very good place to work staff was very friendly and tried to work around your sceduals, was harder sometimes to get shifts but over all a very good place to work if you were hired as full time and not part time
after working for many different managers and never experiencing a problem, I started working at pita pit where I was treated like absolute garbage. This job had terrible management and even worse owners. not only did they not care about their employees but they also belittled them and were extremely condescending.
High Paced Small Kitchen Close Contact with Customers
Key Holder (Former Employee) – Chatham-Kent, ON – 23 January 2018
At Pita Pit you must be able to adapt quickly, it is a very high paced work place. As well you need to be a very personable person who can speak with customers throughout the whole process of their order. You need to make sure their experience is a good one and that they remember that the staff was friendly and that they would go back. We did all our own prep in the back and some was fresh right from the market, ie we cut and diced our own tomatoes same with green peppers and onions. We even bought fresh romain lettuce and washed and cut (we went through a lot in a day ). We would do these daily while also keeping the store looking nice and more importantly clean. While always making sure the customer was attended too.I have alot of good memories of the Pita Pit i worked at. My duty as a key holder was to cose the store essentially every night or every shift i was on. This included extra responsibilities and some being very important such as making sure things are off (no fires) and all doors are locked.
I got to meet and become good friends with many of my customers, brightened my day seeing them come in.
can get very hectic during lunch and dinner rush, unfortunately high turnover rate.
Pita Artist (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 10 January 2018
Was a great place to work for good team work and decent customers. The main owner was relaxed and awesome unfortunally his partner did have moments when she would ask like she was a teenager. But on her good days she was a great boss. I loved working there I just needed to make a change.
Manager (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 11 December 2017
My typical day at work is usually working days, 8-3. It was a very laid back environment, great people to work with. Never really stressed. Boss was never really in. Trusted the staff and me (the manager)
