Waitress/Bartender (Former Employee) – Woodbridge, ON – 23 January 2018
I did enjoy working here for a time, but it wasn't one of the best places I have worked in the hospitality industry. Some things were lacking with the management tactics and working environment and overall it wasn't the right place for me.
Hostess (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 19 February 2018
never received proper seated break or lunch times for any of the employees. Management was rude and would just sit in the office the entire shift. No empathy when something in your family life popped up, required you to work anyway
Day Bartender/ Bar Supervisor (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – 15 January 2018
St. Louis is a great place to work, my day to day has always been pretty fun, there is a really good crew of regulars and staff to make the day go by. There is always something to do which is nice because I need to stay busy. Unfortunately, since the minimum wage increase the owner has implemented many changes that have actually made it so I am making less money than I was before, and with the amount they have cut some of the other staff's hours I have much more work to do in the same time frame. The culture of the restaurant is changing and morale is way down, the manager is awesome but his hands are tied. I have been with this company for a long time and I love it but I am ready for a change.

Busy and great opportunities to make money serving here. Staff is really nice and made alot of friends while serving at St.Louis. Management was not the best as they were very catty and like to start drama between the girls. I loved the theme nights we did and the kitchen is always so nice and are always willing to help you out if you have made mistakes.
Server (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 4 January 2018
This was my first serving job and i enjoyed meeting so many amazing people from my coworkers to my customers. I learned that i enjoyed being a server because it gave me the opportunity to showcase my hospitality skills and i was constantly interacting with new people.

no training given to staff first time servers are given huge sections of 13 + tables or expected to server large tables( 12 people and up ) as well as the rest of the tables in your section . If they see you struggling to keep up with the work load you will be terminated . other servers are rude and mean to each other and drag the rest of the staff into there drama. The servers are encouraged to flirt with customers .( during my first week i had a customer grope me in front of management who did nothing )

Hostess/Busser (Former Employee) – Dieppe, NB – 4 May 2017
A typical day at St. Louis Bar & Grill would consist of a lot of frustations. The atmosphere was like a sports bar; hence, always busy and hectic. The management was awful and i don't suggest working there. Around a dozen people got fired without notice or 2 weeks pay, via Email.
Server/Hostess (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 23 April 2017
Typical day for me is cleaning up tables and making sure cutlery and napkins, etc were filled before my shift. We had small check list of duties to do within our hours and before we leave and start. I learned a lot of people skills with this line of work. Management was perfect as I was going to school and worked part time nearby my school. Workplace culture was enjoyable as I had a good crew of people working with me. The hardest part of the job was managing large tables (15-25 people) on my own as I just started waitressing and learning that year. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and socializing with customers.

Line Cook/Prep Cook (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 3 December 2016
St. Louis being a franchise chain means that every one that you go to will be different. The menu will generally stay the same but the people never will. This particular St. Louis was run by two of the hardest working and yet most laid back individuals I have ever met. They walked the razor's edge between "Fun work boss" and genuine friend with perfect balance. The work wasn't very hard and the atmosphere was welcoming and warm.
