Lead Prep (Former Employee) –  Whistler, BC28 August 2018
I was lead prep for a year in whistler and I had a blast with great managers and chefs alike. It was chaotic madness in busy season but in a good way. People come together as teammates and friends. I would recommend milestones in whistler to anyone look for balance in work and play.
Pros
Great leaders, free food, good schedules.
Cons
Short staff sometimes

poor place to work
Server (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ON26 August 2018
i do not recommend working here, very poorly managed and owned. The owner does not care, the management is garbage for FOH. The staff is always stressed, and overlooked. very rough on mental health. be aware of nepotism. It's no surprise there is such a high turnover rate. Definitely not the same as other milestones
Pros
i'm not sure if there are any
Cons
everything

Productive Downtown Restaurant
Line Cook/Prep Cook (Former Employee) –  Kingston, ON11 August 2018
Milestones in Kingston is a lovely restaurant to work in. Your typical day would consist of setting yourself up for service. Working with a great team to execute guest's favourite dishes and closing down while singing along to some crazy songs.

How milstones is like
Dishwasher/Prep Cook (Former Employee) –  Oakville, ON4 August 2018
It's a very nice place to work at in all honesty. As a prep cook it will be a job like any other in a restaurant, you would complete the items that needed to be made for the day, open the dish pit and clean the dishes that are there to help keep the pace clean. see if any other items or tasks that are needed to be done and help the line cooks with their work to make their job a bit easier as well.
Pros
free food
Cons
many tasks to complete

I found working at Milestones to be a great experience, Milestones takes the time to hire great people that work well together. They also provide and teach you the knowledge you need to succeed within Milestones.

Good people to work with but a very cheap owner
Line Cook (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON3 June 2018
hour would be hit and miss if it wasn't busy you're only getting a 3 hour shift where if it is busy you might get 6 or 7. Also after 3 and a half years of working there they did not want to advance me because i was good at cooking and dish.

Line Cook (Fry) (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON22 May 2018
While the dishes are not hard to make, you need to be able to work quite fast and on multiple things at once. This made it somewhat tough for me but otherwise I can't complain.

Reliable work
Manager (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC12 March 2018
Great food, great people, varies from lots to little work depending position and location you are working at. Able to work up within company and change locations. Working for Milestones is like working for any other large corporation, you have job security but you also have a lot of rules and standards to follow.

Milestones in Niagara Falls is different than any other location
Line Cook (Former Employee) –  Niagara Falls, ON1 December 2017
Milestones in Niagara Falls is operated differently than in any other location. Great place if you want to make money. The staff is friendly and willing to help.

The issue with Milestones in Niagara Falls is poor management.

The restaurant is disorganized, making simple tasks difficult.

Taking breaks is also rare, but half hour is deducted from your pay automatically.

Overall, the Milestones is a great franchise to work at, but the Niagara Falls location needs improvement.
Pros
Good pay and tips, good starter job for students who want to become cooks, great staff.
Cons
Long hours, no appreciation from management, disorganized, poor management, no raises, high turnover rate, no breaks, benifits promised but not guaranteed
