Usually start work around 5pm would begin by cleaning tables and cutlery then start to seat customers take drink orders and help servers bring food to the table. Take delivery orders, prepare delivery orders. Assist customers with any problems they had. Clean tables take out garbages, clean bathrooms until the end of shift.
Hostess (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 20 February 2019
Boston Pizza is ultimately a great place to work. They are a restaurant fuelled by an excellent team with loads of experience. There is a dynamic there that is sometimes hard to understand but once you start working the environment is great.
Hostess (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 February 2019
My first restaurant job, i learned a few things about the industry. How turn over of tables is important. How it is important to rotate where to seat guest so servers won't be overwhelmed. Met a ton of great people, it was a work place that felt like one big family. Both front of house and back of house got along with each other.
A fun place but always on your feet and can sometimes be stressful.
Cook (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 18 February 2019
A typical day at work would be cleaning, filling things up, cooking, and prepping. I definitely learned how to multi-task and how to operate in a high stress situations. Management is super flexible, especially when it's school related. Very accommodating.
Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 16 February 2019
It was OK to work there was one amazing kitchen manager who promoted me and understood how to deal with people. And there was another kitchen manager who didn't know to not mix work and life into conversations. Was a horrible to work with. The General manager Is an amazing guy who was a pleasure to work with and did he job to the fullest extent and had a great personality.
free dinners if picked up shifts
If I had exams I had to work before them at some points
Cook (Former Employee) – Drayton Valley, AB – 13 February 2019
Great place to work it was a little to slow for my taste and it was what seemed to be a boring routine. I worked with mostly Filipinos so there was a large language barrier that could at times be frustrating. Management was great and the food as well
Hostess (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 12 February 2019
I found there to be a lot of issues here with management. they could be quite rude and some days I wasn't allowed to even go for a smoke break when I had not even taken my break, I was told no. that manager does not work there anymore but he caused a lot of problems and was straight up rude. would not recommend working here.

This is a super fun place to work. Everyone is super fun and great to work with. Very flexible hours for students. being cross trained is normal. Worst part is trying to learn the menu since it is HUGE.

Manager (Current Employee) – Prince George, BC – 1 February 2019
This job has given me skills and opportunities through advancement up the ladder from host to management. Day to day people skills dealing with casual interaction to dealing with difficult situations. The staff is fun and easy to communicate with and very flexible around schedules. Management is keen on keeping up with competition wether it be implementing new policies or practices to updating menus.
Server (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 31 January 2019
I found scheduling very difficult as no one was ever happy with the amount of shifts given. It was always a great energy with coworkers. Management never seemed to be in agreement, they were always contradicting each other and could not handle work place problems properly or professionally.
