Waitress (Former Employee), High Prairie, ABMarch 23, 2013
Pros: tips!
Cons: long hours with few breaks, standing on feet all day
I loved being a waitress. I enjoyed talking with customers and being the waitress that everyone liked.
The management changed three times when I was there, so it took a bit to get used to the different people in charge.
Other waitress and I got along great.
The hardest part of the job was the fact that I could not control how fast the food took to cook. – more... So if the food was taking too long, the customers would get angry and sometimes walked out. I also couldnt control if the cooks make a mistake on the order or how it was cooked. – less

Wonderful owner and staff
Line Cook (Current Employee), Nanaimo, BCFebruary 20, 2013
Pros: free staff meals
Cons: not enough hours
I truly enjoy working here; all of the other employees are very friendly and really show good customer service. Normally I prepare dinner vegetables, potatoes (baked and mashed), and fish for fish&chips before dinner, then I work the line for the remainder of dinner. On line we prepare breakfast, lunch, and dinner items from an extensive menu.

Great place to work
Dish Washer/General Cleaner (Former Employee), Fort McMurray, ABAugust 8, 2012
Pros: free lunches, friendly staff, good hours, good pay
Cons: hot water!
When I started my shift I'd do a quick tidy-up of my area to my standards & get to work right away. If there were no dishes to be washed, I'd go to the shelves & counters to make sure everything was neat & in order.

I learned how to use dish-washing machinery & got my first experience of working in a kitchen - it's like a beehive!

The management were – more... great & cared for their employees, often calling us into the office just to check up on us about our home lives & work lives. At the time I was going through a difficult time & my Manager took the time out of her day to find me a Counsellor to speak with. I thought that was amazing.

The waitresses were so friendly & I enjoyed seeing them every day. The kitchen staff, however, seemed more serious & didn't care about me as long as the dishes were done. That's fine too.

The hardest part of the job was lunch hour... what a rush! The dishes would mount up, but it got done regardless.

The most enjoyable part of the job was when we were closing & everyone had to clean their areas. That's when I got to know the waitresses more & we always had fun for that little period of time. – less

High stress environment. I would not recomend seeking employment at this place.
Waitress (Former Employee), Sussex, New BrunswickMay 8, 2012
A typical day involved cleaning everything we could, greeting/seating/serving customers and stocking.

At this job I learned that walking away is not giving up or giving in. Sometimes walking away is the only way to survive.

Management, as far as restaurant operation went, was well planned. As far as employer-employee relationships were concerned...I – more... saw MANY people leave the job in tears, never to return. Yelling and screaming at employees should be against the law. It is one of the worst forms of abuse.

I enjoyed getting to know the people I worked with. Some have turned into lasting friendships.

The hardest part of the job was never knowing what you'd be screamed at for this day. No way to avoid it, it was inevitable, unless a certain someone was not working that day.

The most enjoyable part of the job was the people. I loved the customers! I also loved my co-workers. I live to make people smile and customer service is the best place to accomplish this. – less

Taught me key skills in management areas for which I have never been responsible in the past.
General Manager (Former Employee), New Minas, Nova ScotiaFebruary 20, 2012
Pros: schedule, travel, training, guidance, multi-tasking, time management skills
Cons: long hours
This job was my first full management role as the owner was very hands off and relied on my experience to run his business for him.

I managed all of the operations of the restaurant in both the front and back of the house, as well, was responsibile for recruitment, scheduling, hiring, marketing, performance management, coaching, training, and good – more... relationships with guests, employees and vendors. – less
