Great staff to work with. Hours of operation were condusive to a work/life balance. Overall a positive work environment. Everyone is focussed on providing a great guest experience with a value driven menu.

Would not recommend.

If you're ok to tip out 35% of your TIPS, by all means, work here. It's ridiculous how much money they take from you that doesn't go where they say it does. Robbery.

Horrible workplace

management is very under qualified, bartenders are rude, stuck up and inconsistent with quality and speed, the servers are unorganized and flustered when it is busy (rare) It is almost never busy because it is dirty, and they have a bug problem in the back. I would never eat or even drink anything from here and feel terribly sorry for anyone who has digested anything out of this dirty unkept ‘restaurant’

Fun place to work

I did not specifically work at Applebee's, my sports team organized a pancake breakfast fundraiser there, but the time that we worked it was very fun and the kitchen staff and servers working alongside with us were very inviting and friendly.

Bad time

I remember working for this place and disliking it everyday I had to go into that place. The Barrie GM wasn’t a kinda person. Always seem to have problems with employes. And made it stressful. the money to work there was min wage. Why would anyone wanna work in a kitchen and be paid min wage and treated like less than.

Bad Head Office

Owner doesn't care about you, and the people that have been there for years. Does the bare minimum as an employer, if you can avoid you should. Wished I did.

Ok for a temp or starter job

Would be great as a starter job/student job but doesn't give enough hours to be a main supporting job. Managers are pretty flexible and easy enough to work with. Culture is typical restaurant.

Fun but no advancement. Could be run better.

Fun place to work. Not many advancement opportunities. Seems to care about the company more then employees. Management and upper management don't care about the little guys.
