(line cook) Generally busy, practically fast food preparation, easy menu to learn, good hours if wanted
Line Cook (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 6 May 2016
I worked there for about a year and a half. Not much to say other than it was just like any other corporate kitchen you can come across nowadays, except with fajitas on the menu, and corny "ally-rally" pre-shift chants in which all of the servers in the restaurant completely abandon their guests for about 5 minutes to gather in the back to hoot and holler about shift goals? Definitely, a fun environment if you're into that. In regards to money, Lone Star does offer good amounts of hours if requested (usually) since they are open from 11am - 12am and bi-weekly tip outs also come in handy. I did appreciate the organization of paycheque summaries/statements, emailed schedules, etc. Overall though, mediocre management, mediocre food, and just a mediocre experience.
1$ a shift staff meals for kitchen staff, benefits if eligible, good hours, quick advancement
