Heart of House (Former Employee) –  London8 May 2019
Started with the company when it opened. Was almost always fast paced and required excellent teamwork. Everyone was really easy to get along with, which definitely helped during rushes.

Poor management
Front of House Staff (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON15 April 2019
Management is never happy to be there, and unfortunately it rubs off on the employees and the whole atmosphere is often soured.
constant manager turnover.
Often out of important, staple ingredients for a restaurant but there is no communication so you are not told about it and you only find out once a customer has already ordered.
Front of house staff are treated as lesser individuals compared to the Heart of house staff, with the sentence, "well you guys make tips" thrown in your face. Food is always cold, and corners are often cut to save a penny.
When there is a customer problem managers often expect you to solve the issue yourself, as well as managers often are not on the floor to help out.
there are no incentives or positive reinforcements for good work, or feedback for improvements.
Staff often bring up issues that need to be resolved, or solutions for efficiency but if always goes ignored.
Lastly, there is so much inconsistency and favouritism, for example it is okay for some employees to do 'this' but not others.
Pros
co workers are amazing, everyone gets along, Food discount.
Cons
miserable and spiteful management, not set up for success.

Hectic at times, but the staff are good guys to work with.
Heart of House (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON8 April 2019
The management can be unreasonable at times or even ignore your requests. (Like mine for days i could work). But the people there are a great team and all very friendly people. People seem to quit in waves of 4-8 at a time, followed by a change in management usually, If you can work with not knowing exactly what time you will leave, but at least get paid to stay then this is the place for you. If you like set hours like i do, then it may be better to find another workplace.
Pros
50% discount if you buy food while on a shift, 20% if with family.
Cons
Never know what time you really will leave, Does not inform employees that they can take breaks.

Could have been better
Hostess/Server (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON11 January 2019
I worked here for a very short time as a Host for the restaurant. I was not properly trained and often found myself overwhelmed with too much work for one person. The staff working the same job as me did their best to help, however that made it difficult to do their own jobs. It would have been nice to have been trained properly.

Also, no one gets a lunch break here. Sometimes you will work for more than 5 hours and go without food. When I asked when we would get a break, I was laughed at and told to "let that dream go." Not okay with me!

Leaves much to be desired
Line Chef (Current Employee) –  Vaughan, ON1 November 2018
When you start working at this company, they do not do a very good job at showing you the ropes. While the management is good for the most part, the kitchen does not get any percentage of the tips so that leaves much to be desired.
Cons
Unclear shifts

Pros
working with a fun staff
Cons
8 - 9 hour shift on your feet

working at Buffalo wild wings
Kitchen expediter/ Server (Former Employee) –  Stoney Creek, ON10 September 2018
The typical day at work at Buffalo Wild Wings consisted of working very hard and making sure you were always on the ball to deal with the best and worst of situations. Learned how to continuously come into work with a smile on my face and ready to be happy and conscientious. The management within this work environment was mediocre at best. Workplace culture was what you make it within your daily expectations. The hardest part of the job would have to be dealing with the slow time. If the restaurant is empty then you are not making money and you are very bored. The most enjoyable part of the job is the comradery and friendship you build dealing with the best and worst of situations.
Pros
Good pay if wiling to work hard.
Cons
Not busy not making any money.

Good place to work but lacks competent management
Line Cook and Trainer (Current Employee) –  Windsor, ON18 May 2018
Since working here I've made lots of friends and learned greats deals about cooking and food in general, but one thing that constantly drives me to find a new job is management. Too power hungry and plays favourites in a corporate setting which only does more harm than good

Line Cook (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON28 March 2018
Job is decent. The people are one of a kind. Enjoyed working with everyone most of the time. Easiest part of the job is probably making the wings and the hardest part is working the grill side.
