fun place to work, but wrinkles need fixing
Server (Current Employee) –  Waterloo, ON5 November 2018
Anchor Bar was super fun when it first started, it was crazy busy and all staff had equal opportunities for shifts. For some reason business really slowed down and now they keep canceling staff's shifts. It is really annoying to have to go into work and then be told you're not needed, call the employee prior to their shift if it's not busy!

I remember when I first started the manager would expo, the occasional time she would pick food off the plates right before we took it out. When staff would do the same she was not impressed but as a manager you need to understand; staff watch you, you have to be a good example - you're the leader of the team!!
Pros
Cool restaurant vibe
Cons
Ill Trained Supervisors, Handicap button on door is only for show (doesn't work!), Management has very unprofessional conversations in front of staff
