Line Cook (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 3 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.

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.

called off lots of shifts, not enough hours, extensive training, 8 days long .. lol even if you have experience, your coworkers are usually nice, but this is stil a restauarnt, so you are still trying to work with alot of people every day
Productive, fun work places for those with the passion for hospitality

Pantry Line Cook (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 3 October 2017
I only worked at Milestones for a very short time as a Pantry Cook. I learned the recipes, learned how to prepare the ingredients, and how to put everything together beautifully on a plate. The kitchen staff was friendly and patient, and they were always ready to teach me new and better ways to perform my duties. There were a few "poisonous" who spent their time complaining about few hours and low pay. Management was professional, non-confrontational, and were always ready to do whatever it took to make employees feel safe and happy at work. Training was good, but boring, outdated at points, and repetitive. Learning more positions on the line was up to me, and I found it difficult to learn recipes for Fry station without proper training. I was still expected to be able to work independently at Fry station with no training and no supervision, which provided a lot of stress at work and created a plethora of timing problems in the kitchen. Overall, it was a good job, but the training needs to be handled in a more personal, hands-on way. Most of it is left to you to know or learn by yourself.
