I enjoyed the job, and cooking for the customers but I found the mid management were always trying to find fault with everyone. There is a fine line between following health department rules and bullying. Despite the company image saying that they wanted team players, many people had too much drama, I made a few friends, but the work is for a younger crowd.
Pros
Good tipout if they were busy
Cons
Too much drama and competition between restaurants in the airport meant low sales

They are so unfair and there is a lot of favrotism, supervisors manage below the belt and they are not fair with employees.
They dont care about their employees

Horrible horrible horrible management. Cant begin to describe how bad this company is to work for. Dont do it unless youre willing to get work induced headaches daily. Kitchen standards were pathetic. Poor cleanliness + old broken equipment. Lucky to even see a manager if you have any issues.
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
Everything else

Work is work;giving good results, carrying responsibility following the Standards, HACCP, maintaining the working area, building the team spirit all are the parts of an employee routines. Let it be any company, in any part of the universe sincerity with the work and that's too in the sensitivity of food production; only the morals can work.
Pros
Free Staff Meal
Cons
long hrs

Run pls run don't even look at this company. They will let u lose your stander has a cook. If your not like they will pick on until you quit or they fire you. The union is a joke they work for the company not the workers. Your head of HR don't know how to talk to the employees. Then that leads to the manger and peer mangers who really don't know how to deal with employees. You have about 5 manger that work for this company who know how talk to there employees. PLS RUN DONT WORK FOR THE HMS HOST IN THE AIRPORT in Toronto
Pros
Some of the staff if they not back stabbing
Cons
The management from HR to the little mangers

This job is not the best in the world the management is all over the place. Equipment is way over due and needs updating and repairs. The people are great but when it come down to stress it can be high more often then low. The salary is great depending on your job which can actually be a great factor and the tips are awesome that is if you work for tips. The hardest part of this job would have been the process of getting a day off even when advanced notice has been given long before the day. Consistent reminders are required when it comes to almost anything to do with any restaurant. But if your looking for a job that pays out a lot with a lot of hours but only need it for a short time go for it but YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! Also no eating for free unless the mangers say yes, but there it discounts at a lot of polices on food.
Pros
hours and salary is great
Cons
Management sucks
