It was like one big family
Cashier, Bartender, Hostess, Waitress (Former Employee), Kingston, ONMarch 20, 2013
Pros: management team was professional
Cons: hard to get weekends off
A typical day at work would be to show up on time with a smile on your face and ready to meet your guests needs. I learned that even after being there for five years I didn't have much seniority, they base seniority on age. The older you are the more it will be easier to get what you're asking for (shift wise). The hardest part of my job was trying – more... to get some weekends off. The most enjoyable part was the relationships I developed with my co-workers. – less

Good place to work, with some issues.
Dish Washer (Utility) (Former Employee), Windsor, ONJanuary 23, 2013
Pros: discounted food, great people.
Cons: unreliable hours, advancement is rare.
The work can be overwhelming when you first start off but you quickly get the hang of it after a month or two. The people you work with are all kind and fun making each time you work that much more enjoyable. The hours can be unreliable though as they tend to either over hire or under schedule making it difficult to "make ends meat" at times.

Management – more... will often do what they can to give you enough hours, though you have to ask for it as they prefer to give it to those who want it. If you're a family person they can usually work around your schedule so you have holidays and the sort off, which is nice.

The job itself is very stressful. When it gets busy you are often told to do multiple jobs at once while under staffed. And rather than getting everyone's full support and co-operation, you will find most people would rather bump heads, making work very difficult and almost impossible to focus on the task at hand. – less

Absolutely Amazing!
Bartender (Former Employee), Kitchener, ONDecember 14, 2012
Pros: 50% off food when you're on shift, i think 25% off food with up to 7 people when you come in for dinner
I loved working for Red Lobster, the training program was awesome, the management was superb, they would hop in to help whenever we were busy, always supportive and accomodating. The co-workers were tons of fun, work was always a blast even when we had a two hour standing line! The only difficulty I would mention would be that its customer service... – more... you get jerks in every once in a while. – less
