Line cook (Former Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 15 July 2018
You're off to the races here. You'll always have something to do and customers coming in. There's always room to move stations and positions. Hard workers are rewaded with good hours and good constant shifts.

But I gotta admit the weekends do get a bit hectic. Overall my experience at ESM has been great. The work environment is very friendly and they are willing to help you teach things about the job. There are events almost three times a month so you get to have some fun yourself. I would definitely recommend it to a person who has never worked before but they are looking to try out their hand in some type of field.

The management at East Side Mario's allows the workers to develop in the workplace and encourage growth through the company. The employees make the work environment an enjoyable experience and provide a sense of family.
Host (Current Employee) – Halifax, NS – 16 May 2018
People work in teams, therefore it makes it easy to adapt even for new staffs. Everyone gets a tip out (a dollar per hour), which is nice considering not everyone serves the customers and still you get a piece of the tips. However, I notice that the back of the house has a poor kitchen management.
Server (Former Employee) – Owen Sound, ON – 10 May 2018
Management was fair, assisted during busy hours, and helpful when needing time off for emergencies. Co-workers kept the workplace drama free (as free as a restaurant can be). Any learning could be completed online, and was paid at normal wage.
food discounts, easy to trade shifts with co-works
enjoyable enough of a place, but lacks equal opportunity for its kitchen staff

East side Mario's is what you would expect from a kitchen. But hard work and a positive attitude doesn't go a long way. The kitchen employee who complains the most, and pressures ownership the most, benefits the most. Even if they are undeserving.
Kitchen Staff (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 27 April 2018
Managers Harass employees. I was sexually harassed by other employees here as well as the managers. One of the managers use to greet me with "hey there little girl" and winked. They would also under pay us all the time. I would keep my punch cards to make sure I got the right amount, and I would always get $150 less of what I worked. Also one night I was hospitalized for my appendix and the managers got so mad at me, they didn't care that I possibly had appendicitis.The worst place to work.
