Employees do not receive overtime, sick time, or benefits (unless hired full-time). I even was told that I couldn't clock earlier than 5 mins before my shift, despite having to arrive 10 to 15 mins before my shift begins. Although, one perk is that if scheduled to work a stat holiday employees are paid double hourly wage rate.

Expect minimum wage... most of us are paid at alcohol servers rates, even when working in the kitchen. Breaks are not allowed until after working 5 hours. When you are on cash, be mindful to have perfect cash. I know of people who have been let go for being $20 short - Compass sees it as theft. Cashiers at one unit I worked at were routinely brought in front of management with police present to explain why the cash was short.

It's food service. The job is born to be stressful due to customer volume. If the managers were better team players the job would be way easier.
