Sous Chef (Former Employee) – Huntsville, ON – 29 December 2018
The skills i learned were very intense. Definitely learned behaviours & techniques that could benefit someone having me as an employee. The people work hard and efficient, which always gives you a self check to keep your work ethic in line.
Sushi Chef (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 23 October 2018
Nice working place, I learned how to manage times during working time. The hardest part of my job is cleaning, we have to brush the gap of the tile floor everyday. The most enjoyable part is making excellent sushi for all customers.
Accounts Payable Clerk (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 26 March 2017
workplace culture was very good .Finance department was great ...most of them were very friendly and helpful but the worse thing was that they prefer to use free co-op students instead on investing on permanent employee.
Driver (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 6 March 2017
Bento Sushi was just a way to get some money coming in. The culture was non existent, but the other employees were nice toward me. My manager was sometimes easily aggravated, but other than that I did well there and met the given trajectory.
Sushi Chef (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – 23 January 2017
I love working for Bento Sushi. It's essentially part time, so it comes with no benefits BUT the pay is good. The hours revolve around how long it takes you to do your work, so you can make the day as short or as long as you need to. Great locations, amazing supervisor, fun people to work with.
I find it cool that I can tell people that I roll and package sushi for a living, even though it gets a little repetitive, it's still fun!
I love my supervisor, she is super open, listens to me and is very understanding.
Could use a few more hours, but again it's a part time job. Hours are split between all the employees, so it's not something you can live off of alone. Hours are super easy to have a flexible second job with though!
New skills, flexible hours, above minimum wage
some days are too short, cheques as opposed to direct deposit
Sushi Chef Employee (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 28 December 2016
Manager doesn't train you but passes you to her employees (who uses shortcuts to cook). She's very rude and has poor leadership skills. Not recommended for students that aren't trying to become a chef.
Good coworkers, reasonable mininum wage salary, not too busy
beside sushi we also make what customer require to make for them in our store
Cashier / Customer Service (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB / TD square food course – 23 December 2016
the best part working at Bento Sushi when you got to meet new customer everyday and chatting with them how we make sushi. most of my co-worker are form different country so it fun to work with them and learn about new culture.
Sushi Chef (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 19 June 2016
As a sushi chef, normally I worked alone in the counter. It is a muti-task job which is really can testify you. At the meantime, you need to finish the daily production task and complete the paperwork. The most important thing is to sell the sushi out. From this job, if you follow every procedure, you would be able to be a good chef and sales.
Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Richmong BC – 25 March 2013
Fast paste working environment, I had to be able to work indepantly at time, the people I worked with all had a good sense of work ethic and humour. The hardest part of the job was the work load, at times we had to do the work of three people alone. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping others sorting out problems and investigating errors.
