Line Cook (Former Employee) – Nanaimo, BC – 31 March 2018
I experienced a horrible time there, the staff was rude, and the manager of the kitchen was not very understanding at all. I didnt like the location, and I didnt like the restr itself, it was cramped and uncomfortable
COOK/ KITCHEN MANAGER (Former Employee) – Fort Frances, ON – 28 March 2018
A typical day at Boston Pizza was very steady and busy at times. I learned how to run all the stations in a short time to be a closing manager. Management was considerate and helpful. The hardest part of the job was when employees wouldn't show up for their shift and couldn't find someone to cover them. The staff was the most enjoyable part of the job, the employees all got a long and made the days go by faster.
Expo and Host (Former Employee) – Brockville, ON – 27 March 2018
I enjoyed the floor staff, there was some miscommunication because I was hired as a host but got put on as an expo which is almost a management-style position between the kitchen and waiters. Regardless I learned it and enjoyed my time there, I liked my coworkers and most of my superiors!
kitchen supervisor (Former Employee) – London, ON – 26 March 2018
grateful to have worked for Boston pizza and to expand my experience. i have made many new friends and was pleased by the friendly staff. the only negative was the way each manager worked differently and having some who cared about the job and others who just had the "if it doesn't effect me i dont care" attitude.
Cook/Prep (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 24 March 2018
Daily tasks would involve prepping food for the evening rush. Handling the lunch rush was a very easy task to handle. The management were not very professional at all, there was a lot of favourtism. Those who worked extremely hard were not rewarded appropriately.
fun at first, then managers pick on you when they want you to quit
Server (Former Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 21 March 2018
i was hired with stellar recommendations and told that they were really happy to have me. once i started working there i noticed a few things that seemed really odd, but everywhere has their pros and cons... a lot of the employees who have been working there for a while seem to think micro managing is good for their turnover rate. creepy bartender/ex-manager who hits on everyone i ended up quitting after 5.5 months of working there because i was beginning to dread working there. they would only give good shifts to their "favourites" and i was often told they "had no shifts to give me" even though i was hired as full time staff. overall, the money is mediocre, the owner is in house all the time, and they managers suck.
Hostess (Former Employee) – Spruce Grove, AB – 15 March 2018
it would had been nice to get enough hours to at least make a living off for that only working 8-10 hours a week is not enough hours to be living off of. but other wise i loved the managers kim was my favourite
Pastry Chef (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 14 March 2018
It was a good place to work for young students, most servers would often pass off their duties to you which would sometimes become very overwhelming but ended up becoming comfortable working very busy dinner rushes and big parties.
