Food Service Worker (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 29 June 2018
Toxic work environments, poorly trained and uncaring management, favouritism, executives seem to use corporate “team-building” to gloss over issues within the corporation’s internal structure and operational neglect. For a relatively small organization, communication, accountability and proactivity are severely lacking. Daily work life is mentally and physically draining. Benefits are okay if you’re lucky enough to qualify. Would love to have our CEO go undercover in the food services department and see how unprofessional and abusive mgmt and workers are towards each other. SOS
Free food, daytime hours

Working here at APC was an ok experience for my short stint. The orientation made it seem like it was more extravagant than what it actually is. The manager of my department was extremely pushy as micromanaging everything, always calling to make sure you “do this and do that” not really giving you an opportunity to fulfill your job tasks on your own without being told. It got really frustrating to the point of finding other employment.
Boring night shifts, super unrealistic expectations for patrols
Hostess (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 21 February 2018
Working at The Park Cafe was a great first job for when I was 16, though it was only a summer job for me I found myself working long hours, 5 days per week which wasn't ideal for me. Overall my coworkers were people that I could learn a lot from because of their great experience. I did not get a chance to serve while I was working at The Park Cafe because I was underaged but I did have many responsibilities such as opening and closing the door of the restaurant, preparing table for guests, seating guests and delivering food to tables. My experience working at The Park cafe was good for a first job and definitely helped me learn about the work place and customer service .
Awesome team, everyone works together and makes it easier to get through the long days in changing weather conditions. Management was great and caring and helpful. I highly recommend this position to anyone who loves the outdoors and getting their hands dirty.
a typical day consisted of checking greenhouses temps ect irrigation were needed followed by other assighned duties afternoon greenhouse maintenance watering ect... creating and designing containers, and display items.
I basically was working with someone who had less education and working knowledge of accounting. I was fixing my bosses mistakes and just wasn't the right fit for me. Benefits were great but the working environment was just terrible.
