Thankful for my time with the company but there are little advancement opportunities and should you become a manager, it provides terrible work life balance and can be very demanding. The upper management and owner at my location was great but head office can be a mess sometimes. Hours are all over the place, expect to work long days sometimes 14+ hours, evenings, weekends, holidays.
free food, benefits
Kelsey's management team at my location (Oshawa) is amazing to work for! GM and assistant managers, as well as the regional manager are easy going, appreciate the hard work of their staff and go above and beyond for their employees! Highly recommend Kelsey's! I love it!
Solid management, flexible hours
Shorter shifts on slow days but it goes with the territory in this industry.
Awesome team of servers/bartendersEasy menu to learn Flexible shifts - not great for planning your life outside of work though. Shifts could be 1 hour or could be 8 you just never know,Typical difficult customers but mostly goodTerrible food - it gets sent back a lotTerrible training - you’re dumped onto an employee that has no idea until they arrive for their shift Dictator like management - you just never know when you’re putting a foot wrong Management hides a lot of the problems from owner so when complaints are sent in, the owner has no ideaDiscounts on meals but not free - 50% off before, during or after your shift. 20% off for you and 6 others outside of your shift. Also 20% off at other Cara brand restaurants.
Fun, easy work, great team of servers/bartenders
Management are awful, shifts are all over the place
If you're looking for meaningful work without the burden of typical Mon-Fri hours than Kelseys is for you! Money is good and Management is great! Love
The better you get the more tables you will have
Fast-paced environment and not everyone can work at this pace. Know yourself.
Worst place ever to work at.Manager cuts your hours if she thinks you know something about her past.If she doesnt like people you know and keep company with, she will cut your hours.She throws office chairs in the kitchen when shes mad.Shamiah...worst position for this woman. I never recommend this place.
Good Spinach Dip
SHEMIAH the Manager
i got no hours, i would be at work for 3- 4 hours 3 times a week. The servers are lazy and so rude. The managers were always making race comments and little snippy comments to me. i called in to quit and the manager cut me off mid sentence and was completely out of line and just hung up the phone after he found out i quit. Honesty not worth being there, the money isn't even that good.
50% food after your shift
everyone there is rude
They're a revolving door for staff and management, which leads to a good majority of the staff having no idea what's going on at any given time. And believe me it shows in the number of guest complaints you deal with... when you can actually get hours or tables because people are starting to realize just how downhill they've gone, so they're often pretty empty (obviously referring to pre pandemic). Don't waste your time.
Don't work here! You get bullied and treated like garbage all the time! The Kelsey on Oxford and Gammage in London Ontario the owner is a racist pile of garbage.( it won't let me swear). The management doesn't care about anything of anybody they spread rumors about you behind your back and if you confront or report them,you lose your job! Absolute joke.
If this place burned down.
I was a line cook and prep cook so every day looked different for me , i learned to move a lot faster and do several things at once , it helped a lot especially during diner rush. Very fast paced go go go environment , but i loved it , the guys i worked with really made my job the best , coming into work everyday and joking and having fun , but also serious and we work when we need to , probably the best job i have ever had..
Don’t take the job it’s a waste of time they treat the back employees like slaves you don’t get paid anything special and there is never any set time you can leave they, the servers don’t do anything and the work placement is toxic a bunch of clowns talking about each other and bullying the new people
