Waitress (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 6 May 2013
I have worked at this location for about 10 years of my life. I started at a very young age. I started with cleaning tables, then moved to hostessing and then finally serving. I learned a lot at this job. I learned how to deal with customers, how to deal with complaints. This is where I got all my people skills from. I also learned a lot about teamwork and taking control of situations. On a few occasions I did opening shifts so I was expected to lead my crew for the day and make sure everything runs smoothly. The hardest part of the job would be trying to deal with everything when we are busy in the early mornings when we don't have as much staff on. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with such amazing people and having regular customers and seeing the same friendly faces almost everyday.
Line Worker (Former Employee) – Delta, BC – 11 April 2017
I had a terrible experience working here. I was over loaded with tasks and was taken advantage of because i was so young. The head cook showed little to no respect towards me. I was supposed to apprentice under him, but he decided shortly after hiring me, that he did not want to anymore. 2 of the 4 managers liked me and helped me as much as they could along the way
Hostess/Server/Bartender (Current Employee) – New Westminster, BC – 8 April 2017
While working at White Spot (hostess/bartender/server), I've inherited multiple traits. I've learned how to multi-task and communicate with customers extremely well. The staff treated me exceptionally well and so was the overall environment.
Server (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 April 2017
It was a great place to work. there was always regulars in the bar or the lounge. A lot of the staff not only had great working relationships,but they also had great friendships outside of work as well. It was a great opportunity to start from a server their with no prior experience to eventually work my way up to a management position that played a strong role in the front of house operations. The hardest part about the job was knowing that it was shutting down and that in order to still work close to where I lived at the time I would have to switch jobs.

Food Runner (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 26 November 2016
The job is easy but you are forced to work overtime when its busy and you have no say. The management doesn't care about your life style as in they can force you to work and they don't care if you request days off they only wanna benefit there business and not your life.
Head Grill (Former Employee) – New Westminster, BC – 21 October 2016
I learned a lot working here from my own attitude to managing a team. The management was very cruel at times depending on the manager during the shift. I learned to deal with it so we could get through high volume services. The kitchen staff always varied from lazy to caring. The serving staff was not managed well and during high volume times they would take all of their tables orders before running anything into the systems causing a whiteout that wasn't necessary. Criticism aside I did like m team; they listened to my leadership and we survived. The hardest part of this job was the poor management; from the abuse to lack of control it made my job as the head cook a struggle some nights. The best part of my job was training young cooks and seeing them do great work and be part of the team.
Hostess (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 21 October 2016
Decent place to work, decent food, and a decent location, but self righteous customers who have an attitude seemingly being entitled to things right when they want, management who isn't objective enough, and immature colleagues made this place more of a burden to go to than an enjoyable place.
Very good workplace with amazing people but the management sometimes lacked.
Lead Server (Current Employee) – Guildford, BC – 13 August 2016
My job as a server includes dealing with a plethora of people from all different walks of life. Sometimes the most challenging part is maintaining a cool level head with not only guests but also with co workers and management.
