Bartender/Server (Former Employee) – Bowmanville, ON – 5 April 2019
While the place is a very nice restaurant and gets a lot of repeat guests, the place is an absolute nightmare to work at. The restaurant is family owned and the owners are not open to suggestions on how to fix issues around the restaurant and are very cold to their staff.
It was one of the worst places I’ve ever worked strictly because of how the owners treat their staff compared to how lovely they are to guests.
Server/Bartender/Hostess (Current Employee) – Bowmanville, ON – 20 March 2017
Working here was a great way to get me out of my shell at a young age. It helped me improve my social skills and harness the confidence needed to move on into the future. I learned many valuable lessons I will carry with me into future endeavours including time management, the ability to work individually and in team settings, and the importance of providing excellent customer service and creating a warm and inviting experience that people like to return to.
Very close staff, family owned, short shifts, lots of support and working as a team
Catering Assistant (Former Employee) – Bowmanville, ON – 5 June 2016
Very repetitive, was in charge of food prep, dishes, and learning how to do various things around the kitchen. Begin work early in the morning and finish late at night, sometimes even into the next morning.
