Server (Former Employee) –  Woodbridge, ON19 March 2019
Management is much too young to have the positions and power that they do. People in the hospitality industry are usually very fun to work with, they're approachable, energetic and hard working.

productive and fun fast paced workplace
HOST/FOOD RUNNER/SERVER (Former Employee) –  10235 101 st edonton ab19 March 2019
A typical day, I would go in about 30 min before my shift to get us set up for the day/night. Setting up and cleaning everything so I knew we would be set for a busy day. I learned so much at chop, knowledge of seat rotation as hostess, knowledge of open table, knowledge on proper food temps, lots of knowledge on wine and liquor, and I learned proper knowledge on proper prep levels for sales.
The management there is like family, super easy to talk too and very approachable.
The workplace culture is very face paced and hands on
The hardest part of the job was on event nights because there were so many reservations and people we had to accommodate for.
The most enjoyable part was the family and friends I made there.
Pros
being downtown the location was always busy
Cons
the commute to work and no parking

Fun workplace and atmosphere, great for a first job
serving assistant (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON11 March 2019
Chop Steakhouse is very accommodating to your schedule, however, advancing positions will take at minimum a year to a year and a half. The atmosphere is typically relaxed making it a good place for you to begin working.

No room for growth
Line Cook (Current Employee) –  London, ON13 February 2019
I have worked at chop for a year and a half now and have been stuck on the same station the entire time, when people who started long after I did have now become supervisors. There is no room for growth within those walls.
Also the head chef doesn't listen when you ask for more hours because one shift a week will not help cover squat of your day to day living needs.
A year ago I would have said Chop is an incredible place to work... Now... Do not bother.
Pros
Friendly employees
Cons
No room for growth, bad management.

Fun place to work
Prep/line Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Woodbridge, ON28 January 2019
mostly disorganized, be willing to work hard and smart. Management does not really know their workers. A very friendly place to work. Most of the kitchen supervisors have minimum culinary knowledge.

good if youre in school
Hostess (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON3 January 2019

Pros
good people, some nice managers, good food
Cons
short shifts, unprofessional managers, bad discount, no tip out

hostess at chop steak house
Hostess (Former Employee) –  Toronto Pearson International Airport, ON6 December 2018
Some workers were not friendly, and manager was bias to certain people who applied to the job due to their looks and not their capabilities. Hostess position is easy, you great the customers and kindly bring them to their table and clean up after them once they leave.
Pros
30% discount on food
Cons
no stable, good hours and have to go on waiting list for better position such as bartending and serving.

It's a very expensive place, I was surprised how much they charge, but the food is amazing.
Line Cook (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB23 August 2018
The boss was very reluctant to give formal recoginition, even though I'm very qualified. Some of the supervisors are lazy and rude. The most a regular employee can receive for benefits is 30% off on food. And the expectations are super high, they don't let you leave at your end time, only when everything is complete for the day. Which can really be emotionally and physically draining and inconvient from day to day.
Pros
Awesome cooking experience.
Cons
Annoying hours

Ideal work place
Prep /line cook (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON23 August 2018
a typical day at work is always a choose because you can chose to make your day a work a great day from your discretion to only have a great day with a smile on your face. learn what the best way to work with all management knowing that they are the reason why you have the chance to do your job right, and always try to work as hard or harder then everyone at work. this is what it was like to work at chop
Pros
Great family of people to work with
Cons
not enough money to go around to everyone to get paid right

Terrible management
Server (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC11 July 2018
I have worked at many restaurants in Vancouver, there is not enough space to express how awful the management is. Incompetent, green, disrespectful, rude, offensive to guests in addition to staff. Vancouver has so many opportunities, it's an employees market. I worked here for years, but the old management as decent--current management is an embarrassment. Do yourself a favour, don't waste your time on Chop.

my experience
Host (Current Employee) –  Vaughan, ON4 July 2018
management is to young and inexperienced, moving up needs to be something you tell them about consistently and even than, they fail to do anything to meet the needs and desires of their emoplyees. very disorganized but great work environemnt, fun, friendly.

Repetitive workplace
Woodbridge - Team Member (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON2 July 2018
The tips are decently good. The work is very repetitive and demanding as you will be asked to work past your shift for several more hours and there is practically zero chance of advancement. The management is very close-minded. However, staff members are very friendly and welcoming .
Pros
Nice Tips
Cons
Long hours

People are fun but...
Line Cook/Dishwasher (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB11 June 2018
Most the people I work with are fun and engaging. The majority is driven to do what is right, and get the job done. Unfortunately that is more geared towards the front of house, and not so much the back of house. The cooks, and the dishwashers are mostly able to get the work done, but with a large disparity with speed and efficiency. If you are a hard worker here you are expected to also do another persons workload, because they are too slow to get it done. This puts a lot of strain on the workers that are here, because this is a minimum wage job.
Pros
Work with a wide variety of people
Cons
Large hurdle to advance reasonable

Not a great place to work.
Cook (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB10 May 2018
There is to much management staff that tell you a different thing everyday. You request to have certain days off and there can't even do that. The amount of work you do is not worth the minimum wage.
