Don’t

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Applied for the server position, turned out I had to work in the kitchen, doing the prep, dishes at the same time. Always short-staffed that we had to stay past the our shift to help our co-workers. The only pro is probably 10% off on the menu??? And how ridiculous it was when they didnt let you take the day off on a friday even though you asked for weeks in advance.Co-workers are nice tho.Tbh it’s better to work at tims or mc donald.

Pros

Fun working environment

Cons

No employee benefits

Uncomfortable

Not the greatest and not the worst place to work but the environment doesn't make it the most comfortable place to work.My location is mostly constantly busy and customers can make stress levels go through the roof. Been here for 6 years and the colleagues are great to work with. This is not the sort of job for a new comer into the work force, and definitely not a job for anyone under 20. This is a job physically and mentally meant for people over the age of 20.

Pros

Free Food

Cons

Extreme Customer rush and Karens

Friendly culture in a fast-paced enviroment.

I start learning soo good about their enviroment, then I begin to serve and earn and now i'm staying with this company for a long-term basis. First I just needed to learn fast and adopt their services and job culture as quick as I can, and I succeeded in it. Now i'm a PRO"" That's the biggest requirement they have which they want from us.

Positive workplace environment

The customer is always right! I have always considered myself a pretty patient person but working in retail really puts your patience to the test. Sometimes you will be put into irritating situations, but you have to stay calm, listen to the customer, not get frustrated and endure.

Pros

Free Lunches

Cons

Long Hours

fun workplace

flexible but one of the managers is cheap and mean. you have to pay for your food and the break is not paid. not bad if you're just looking for a part tine job.

Typical fast food work

It's your standard food-court fast food job. Fast paced. The food is VERY good, however, so that's a good thing. However, it takes a lot more work to prepare food as fresh as JTG does compared to other chains, so you do have to work a bit harder to earn the same rewards as you would get from working elsewhere. But they feed you, and the food is amazing.

Fun workplace

The hardest part about the job was when people weren't satisfied with their food. Some people may have come across as disgruntled and others may have been disrespectful. These food complaints go straight to the server who has no control over the taste of the food. However, with enough practice, there comes a time where you learn to deal with these conflicts in a resourceful manner.

Pros

Free Lunches

Cons

Long hours

Decent place to work

It's always busy at this job especially because it's located at Cross iron Mills so my work here is always on a fast phase mode. Though this work requires you to move fast, it enhance my multitasking skills.
