Long hours, split shifts with long breaks in between

Good if you’re just starting out as a server
Server (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON22 February 2019
If you have served in other restaurants, please don’t waste your time here. It’s a “no tipping” environment. Tons of food gets thrown out and we’re not allowed to eat it. Instead we eat poorly cooked food in the employee lounge.

They will schedule you for any and every hour that you’re available and they’re open for so make sure you give yourself a day off because they won’t. The people that work there are super kind and they make it a lot better. Some employees don’t do anything though.

Everyone pretty much has to work weekends. Management says, “We care about work life balance!” Yeah, right. Don’t believe everything during the interview.
Pros
Coworkers, hard to get fired
Cons
Union that doesn’t do much, long hours, schedule

Over all a great place to work, however ....
LIFEGUARD / SWIMMING COACH (Former Employee) –  GTA, ON30 October 2018
Over all working at the granite club is a great experience, pay is good, uniforms are good quality, other staff are lovely BUT the members unsurprisingly are entitled and rude and speak to you as if you're nothing. the club does have disciplinary action for members who do treat you badly and management typically take it seriously.
Pros
pay, free meal, good environment
Cons
managers sometimes arent great, members are rude

alright place
SERVER/BARTENDER (Current Employee) –  North York, ON4 October 2018
I used to love coming to work, it was a great place to work. until new management started last year. since then i have never seen more people getting fired and quit. everyone is getting paid the same however if youre a good worker they will suck the life out of you. youre expected to work so much and given nothing in return. benefits are ok, food is nasty downstairs, and people get fired over taking some food home from the left over buffet. also the amount of food waste in this place is absolutely ridiculous. weve been getting so many new people and no one is being trained which means more work for us, management seems disconnected. tey will ask us what needs improvement but nothing ever changes. still the same...

Great place to work
Bartender (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON7 November 2017
This was a great place to work the members and management are awesome. The workplace offers great meals everyday and excellent benefits.

a typical day is 8 hours but they have lots of hours to give out as there are so many staff and there are frequently sick calls.

The best part of this job is the people and the beautiful building.

Good compensation, poor training, mixed management.
Cook (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON19 September 2017
- Good compensation and benefits thanks to a decent union.
- 8-hour shifts, overtime pay for extra hours.
- Working culture is mostly positive.
- Perpetual under staffing, minimal training. Not always clear what your responsibilities are.
- Management will either be helpful or make your life a nightmare, depending on how much they like you.
- Mods like you've never seen.
Pros
pay, union, management
Cons
understaffed, lack of training, management

Teach the kids how to learn a particular sport, responsible for watching them the entire shift. I learned how to keep the children entertained for a long time. The management is very good, they keep a very good relationship with their staff.
