Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Avoid at all costs. Poorly led, inadequately managed, does not handle difficult situations well. Pay varies by establishment, but is generally underwhelming.

I enjoyed working here as a Sommelier

I enjoyed working here, it was a place with a lot of interesting wines and a very engaged staff to work with. I though the position was a good fit for me

do not waste your time!

High turn over, owners that don't care for their staff, no benefits (even though they are a massive company with hundreds of employees) -Crazy hours -banquet manager has no professionalism. Rude to staff and co-workers -marketing manager was dismissive

Horrible Corporate Culture, Lying Delusional Owners, Horrible Senior Management - Avoid at All Costs

With the exception of a few good people painfully struggling to make it work within the group, this company is horribly run. The owner and his wife are delusional egomaniacs and upper management is highly fragmented, disorganized and constantly busy with in-fighting. Everything is done too fast with too little follow-through. Big promises of world-class venues and experiences with awful behind-the-scenes culture. They build it big enough and shiny enough that it somehow works but working with this group has been some of the worst years of my life. I hang on in order to advance my career but the culture is truly awful. Work here if you love to just barely meet the status quo and get yelled at by a maniacal CEO/Owner, love in-fighting, thieves and workplace chaos. Don't work here if you're not into an owner who yells and shouts at meetings and sends freakout text messages late at night while he's having wine-fuelled dinners at his restaurants. In an industry dominated by 'personalities' these guys absolutely take the cake. Definitely NOT recommended!

Pros

You barely need to work to fit in here. Anything even slightly above the status quo will get you by

Cons

Insane owner, zero standards, terrible communication, yelling, shouting, sub-standard service and treatment

To the point

A typical day at Casa Loma was long but rewarding. My vocabulary has greatly increased day by day. Management was kind and friendly. The workplace culture was very accepting. - Lack of free time - The people

Pros

Long shifts

Cons

Distance and pay

Great Staff - Terrible Company

You get scheduled to work "steward" shifts, which are the private events. The customer is mislead and pay mandatory 18% "gratuity", however the servers don't see any of that. The company/owners keep it. You are also not allowed to tell the customers that gratuity is not included in their bill. Servers are also mislead on where their tip outs go to. You tip out as standard to kitchen, Support, etc. The kitchen staff have never seen a tip out.Overly concerned about labour costs, cutting too early, calling off shifts etc.

Pros

hours, money, staff

Cons

stolen tips

A fun place to work

Liberty Grand is a fun place to work and having amazing co workers to work with on daily basis makes your job even better. Excellent management, good Work ethics and well organized chefs which makes Liberty grand such a learning experience and an enjoyable work place.

Used to be the best in Toronto

This is possibly the worst managed company, I'm even surprised how it has survived, well on second thoughts most of the venues are either like a diner on the highway or they serve a particular group of people rejected by the society.

Pros

Some venues are great like Casa Loma and Liberty Grand

Cons

Complacency

Good and Bad

Depending on the mood of corporate some days are better than others. More concerned about their looks and guest and food quality. A joke on undercover boss - they are nothing like that. And offered the trip because of air miles

Great staff although very heavy workload

My day normally started around 8am. I was in the office and ready to go right away. The work load was very heavy as I was working alongside the VP of Operations. A lot of the time I was working until 7 or 8pm. My co workers were great however I feel that they were also very stressed out with the workload. The hardest part of the job were the hours, being in the office from the early morning until late evening. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to be apart of many of the fun events around Toronto. I was able to work a TIFF event where I met Adam Sandler, Robert Pattinson, John Cusack and others.

Pros

Since the company caters events there was lunch cooked for the employees every day.

Cons

The hours were a little much

High Volume, Sales, Inventory Management, Teamwork

Though the hours may seem long to some, this is a great position for someone who enjoys a social setting and networking. Those working in a bar/restaurant regardless of location must be able to work in a fast-paced environment. My typical day at work could run anywhere from 11am until 4am - all depending on the event. Liberty offers a wide range of entertainment selection; restos, nightclubs and corporate venues. Liberty, also known for it's largest venue, The Grand, are recognized for their elaborate decor and finest menus. Each establishment has a creative and fun atmosphere. They treat their staff with respect and I'm happy to give them a 5 star review.

Pros

Networking

Cons

Night Owl
