First and foremost, don’t work for macleod trail! The possibility of advancement is zero. “Aces in their places”, or a nice way of the sous chefs telling you they are too lazy to train, and management is unwilling to put those training hours down. Inconsistency is the name of the game, with no follow ups, so the inconsistency stays pretty consistent unfortunately. Work life balance is horrible, with the scheduling app GIVING YOU a start and end time, BUT only the start time is enforced. There is no care about your personal life, responsibilities, or even your set availability. Really great company culture, if only it could be followed. Kitchen is RUN DOWN to the point the steamer leaks boiling hot water and scalds you when it hits you. The equipment does not facilitate learning, efficiency, or cleanliness. Management on both ends constantly bad mouth other employees around people, leaving you wondering what they say about you when you leave. Stay away from MAC T if you want to keep your passion for food service.
Pros
Great boh & foh staff to work with
Cons
No work life balance, terrible equipment, run down kitchen, no room for advancement

Cactus Club is new to Toronto but it has deep roots in Vancouver Canada, that is where it gets its great workplace culture. The vibe of the people they hire alwasy seem to mesh well together and get along so well. They are always trying to improve and have very strong core values that they do their best to achieve everyday.
Pros
Workplace culture is great, 50% of food while working
Cons
Long or too short of hours, low salary for junior managers. No benifits.

Working in the dish area at cactus was fun 90% of the time because my coworkers were fun everyone in the kitchen is pretty much a big family. When it came to dealing with problematic employees though management wasn’t very much help.

It’s a decent place to work if you can manage the politics, and there is lots. Management is petty and rarely on the floor to support but you’ll always get blamed if something goes wrong. The girls are super catty but you’ll make good money if you can just keep your head down and not get involved. Oh, expect a million servers to get hired in the summer and then everyone only gets one shift a week in the winter. You’ll struggle to pay your bills in the beginning and through the winter. Shift leaders are lazy and useless.. so basically be self sufficient you’ll do ok. 3/5 overall, FCP location

This company is great in that it's both a great place to just come in and just work or somewhere you want to move up and they can help you with that. Incredible culture as well.

Cactus Club has been a great job for me so far as I have gained lots of experience with customer service and working with a team as well as independently. It is a very friendly and welcoming environment and it teaches you many skills in life, and is a great place to meet new people and make new friends.

Great staff and management. Very busy, huge restaurant with high turnover. Excelled in their work ethic and dedication to the customer. Management was superb, each appropriately hand picked and added to the work culture. Unfortunately with work culture they do cater to the, hiring attractive-type environment, which certainly works with company image. However this adds a few bad eggs personality wise. Can be very surface level kindness. Hardest part of the job was the insane amount of people that came through. Most enjoyable being how we were able to get through it all.
