Cactus club are penny pinchers, they will cut staff and screw over their team if it meant to save a few bucks. Stressful work environment and the occasional temper tantrum from the chef's, high expectations, low pay, you are not treated well here, working here feels like you are slowly chipping away at your sanity and dignity. Perfectionism reigns supreme and you are expected to work like an impeccable unfeeling automaton. If you make a mistake you will be hearing about it from 6 different managers.
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours, low pay, hostile work environment.

Started out ok, they give you in house money to use only at cactus for rewards, no pay increase even when you make Jr souc chef, your minimal wage increases is your pay raise. Lots of brown nosing massive popularity contest, you can be a terrible cook and promoted because your well liked or invest in the company. Tip pool is corrupt, make no mistake if you are struggling your team will not help you and laugh as you struggle even if your new and tell management this is why you don’t fit here so they get better shot at promotion.
Pros
Starting wage is better by 1$
Cons
Everything

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.

Usually its a question of performance or dedication to long hours but a combination of both still won't promote you. If you don't fit in with the crowd you won't have much of a future. The odd manager will coach you however the majority of the time is a sink or swim environment. Pay is bare minimum
Pros
the customer base
Cons
the colleague base

Easy work and consistent money. Great job if you're looking to make money and leave work at work. As long as you can handle a few creeps you'll be fine

This is a great place to work temporarily. Money is alright, but mostly because the customers pay you. This is, however, one of the most organized corporations I've ever worked for.

Pay was decent but could be better for hosts. Was able to work flexibly with my schedule. Very fast-paced environment and often very demanding clientele.

Cactus really didn't do anything for me, I was there for a year and as an African Women, I got paid barely anything. All the white girls and Asian girls got raises and got easy opportunities to advance and no matter how hard i worked i was never good enough for the company. It was sad because I was probably the only black girl in that location for the longest time and I still got mis treated.
Pros
nice people
Cons
Have to be White/Asian for them to like u

Working at Cactus Club Cafe can be great, but as of right now in the summer each server is not getting full hours so the money isnt there. The management tries to address everyones concerns yet they still cut you after a couple hours of work. Its not sustainable, although the people and the guests are lovely.

Cactus club works you until you feel like giving up. They never give breaks and do not pay well. You won’t get a raise unless you are on their good side. You don’t get benefits unless you’re a manager. I
Pros
Nothing
Cons
No breaks, pay is low, no benefits
