Line Cook (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 23 January 2019
They couldn't get people to stay. The management wasn't strong enough, I remember being confused about what I was doing a lot. They relied on me being there twice a day almost every day. I would have to work lunches and dinners because they had no one else to cover my position, would put a strain on my personal life. I didn't really enough my time there. Shortly after I left, the store closed down.
Hostess (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 1 March 2019
Great job, able to learn skills applicable for many jobs. Get to interact with and meet new people. Learned how to open a restaurant and prepare for customers to arrive. Learned how to close the restaurant and leave everything ready for the morning.
Line Cook (fry & pantry) (Current Employee) – Langford, BC – 23 October 2018
It’s an amazing place to work, I’ve been working for the company for a year and a half and I’ve moved around a bit starting as a dishwasher while doing high school, management is very understanding and supportive and co workers are great I’d definitely recommend working here
HOSTESS (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 21 October 2018
As a hostess, I would communicate with the management team every shift to understand my duties for the day. I learned that it was important to not only keep customer satisfaction, but bond with your staff to exceed everyday. I enjoyed working with others and collaborating to make everyday successful for the restaurant. The hardest part of the job was not being rewarded for my efforts, I excelled in my job but was never rewarded for my efforts, as long as the restaurant was making money then nothing else was a worry. I know it is difficult to keep a company running, but as an employer, I would like to be more appreciated for the tremendous amount of effort I put in every single day.
customer service, outgoing, active, and enjoyable.
Lead Prep (Former Employee) – Whistler, BC – 28 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.
Line Cook/Prep Cook (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 11 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.
Dishwasher/Prep Cook (Former Employee) – Oakville, ON – 4 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.
Server (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 20 June 2018
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.

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.
