Great place to work if you put your head to it and work hard.
Line Cook (Former Employee) –  Niagara Falls, ON1 February 2016
It was my first kitchen job ever and I was hired on a whim almost at the last minute before the store opened. We did two weeks training witch didn't feel like much and we all struggled when the restaurant opened Canada day 2015. The management was very helpful and made sure everyone got the help they needed and with in 3 weeks after opening we all had everything down to the teeth and we begin working without managers and trainers in the kitchen just the kitchen supervisor. Don't be fooled by the family atmosphere, if you don't work hard then you will be fired on the spot. Its a kitchen and it will get extremely busy and will be extremely stressful. If you put your mind to it and always make sure you are helping out where you can then you will make it at The WORKS. I loved working there and miss it everyday since I had to move out of Niagara Falls. I became part of a family their, and everyone their became my family. Just make sure you always ask for help and never stand there playing with your thumbs. always ask if there is something you can be doing to help. even if its not what you were assigned to be doing.

The Works -Hamilton
Server (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON13 August 2014
The works was one of the funnest and most organized workplace I have ever had a chance to work in. I had some of the greatest co-workers and got to me some of the most interesting customers. The Management team, which though it was quite small, was extremely organized and flexible. The managers always made sure to explain task thoroughly and ensure that everyone was on the same page to ensure our performance with the guest was on point. The most enjoy part of this job included pleasing the guest and knowing that you provided them with service that will keep them coming back and also having coworkers that work so close as a team that it almost felt like one big family.
