For the most part everyone is super welcoming when you join. Everyone is really helpful wants others to succeed. Very communicative when needed. Fun place to work. Only downsides would be that there won’t be much advancement unless you have friends in the right places and connections..etc And you are very irreplaceable so there is 0 room for any mess ups. But money is good compared to most serving jobs.
Short hours, fight for any advancement
I had so much fun when I was working there for a few months even though the work was physically demanding. The people there are very friendly especially the bosses. They consider me like their real friend.
They don't sponsor foreign workers
Management was ruthless. If you weren’t making enough money per table they wouldn’t schedule you. Still make you wear heels. Swerves were dating each other. Management was dating cooks. It was like high school with all the drama and “popular” people
I have never worked for a company with such bad environment and I've worked in oil and gas. If you want a job in which you will want to kill yourself by the end of the day this job is probably for you, you will be underpaid and over worked. I was in a car accident and my first thought was oh no who's going to cover my shift not and will I be okay because I knew I would be yelled at if I couldn't find someone to cover my shift.
I enjoyed the atmosphere the staff and over all learing experience. Some managment was lacking in the respect department. I have requested an ROE from Earl's 5 times and have yet to recive one, paper copy nor digital to CRA. It's been a year since I've worked there. Other then the lack of this neglect to fix their error. Earl's would be the place for someone that loves to cook and has the willingness to learn. They have amazing chefs that anyone would be lucky to learn under!
Staff was like a family. Excellent food. Great learning environment.
Late hours and front of house management degraded you. Treated you like you were a nobody.
My experience at Earls was nothing but positive, and has a great management team to consult on anything you need to know. I learned skill s that help problem solve in a working environment, and the pace at which someone starting at an entry level position should be accustomed to. I found that the most enjoyable part of the job is the welcoming atmosphere, and the friendly employees.
Manager is not good at all, I do not recommend to work at any earls in grande prairie, Alberta. I am completely disappointed in the management their. They are very childish and not mature and are run by people that act like a chicken with their head chopped off
other employees are very kind and helpful their
Terrible manager, not proper training, and managers that lie
fun place to work not a flexible job.when the restaurant is not busy they call/text and cut your shift.A lot of stressful situations.tips are low compared to other restaurants in the area.schedules are a mess, they sometimes schedule you past your availability and there are no buses late at night (had to end up taking Uber many times)
Long work hours with no break, if the restaurant is not busy they will cut you for the day leaving your schedule in a mess
Fun and dynamic work environment. Management always is supportive and willing to train. Advancement available for anyone that's willing to do the work. Great family type environment amongst the staff.
Good work/life balance
Pay isn't the best, but that's standard in this industry
i got used a lot i felt beaten down at the end of my 4 th year tried to become sous 5 times and always got an excuse as to why I would never make it my head chef nathan was not a nice guy in the end a lot of directors higher up lost all creditability and had to quit or shuffle around
no time and expectations, is to stay until your done no pay, lost over 200hours within year and claimed 1500 in speed tickets to rush to gfs before service
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

Bullied by the Sous Chef very unprofessional we had a disagreement he sent me home and kept badgering me, when I left the prep area he came to find me and told me if I went home I was fired. I had enough of him by then and his inappropriate conversations he would initiate. There was a few good people but otherwise the main crew were always getting high on the job and some staff would eat for free saw lots of things the Sous Chefs did not see! To think this was rated as one of the best places to work I guess if your an alcoholic and pot head!
Chef and the Sous Chef who trained me were great to me and very professional!
Staff always high or getting high on breaks, some employees were there too long and too comfortable in their positions.
sue chef bully and treat other cools very bad. The pay is minimum wage. They promote and pay more base on a bias opinion other than hard work. There is a lot of drama and gossip from back and front of house workers.
Toxic environments overall
I didn't work for a long time at Earl's but didn't have the best experience either. Sadly, I wouldn't recommend it. Training employees required a lot more attention and making staff feel appreciated was lacking. Turn over was really high and I could understand why.
I loved working here. Fast paced, team environment. The atmosphere is electric, and it doesn't take much to for the whole team to get pumped up. Time goes by fast here... it truly is an amazing place to work
Never a dull moment, time goes by fast.
Long hours, and the management can be clique-ey
