Lack of Managment
Cook (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON16 January 2019
There is no job security and there is a lack if respect for team members.

No proper training on cooks.

There is an extremely high turnover rate making it near impossoble to have the team fully trained on every station (prep and line).
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
No payment of extra hours

Poor Management and Tipping Policy
Bartender (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON20 February 2019
There is a general lack of organization and leadership. FOH coworkers were lovely but upper management doesn't know what they're doing.

A lot of unhappy employees, meaning a high turnover rate. No breaks on your shift because they are very busy and understaffed. Overly concerned with keeping hours down and cutting staff.

Training and on boarding experience was awful or rather nonexistent.

Tip pooling was the biggest problem though. Servers and Bartenders only see about 50% of their tips. A large percentage being used to pay the kitchen and hosts.

You have to work very hard for little compensation, not worth the effort.
Pros
good food discount on shift and friendly coworkers
Cons
No breaks, poor organization, terrible tip pool

Greedy owners
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON5 February 2019
Everyone at a in-house restaurant level is amazing, upper management is greedy and have a very loose idea of Employee Rights.

"Redistributed" tips instead of giving appropriate raises when minimum wage went up.
