Working at Moxie's Grill & Bar was very time consuming. Understaffed, given equipment is unsatisfactory in terms of use, unprofessional management and staff.

Received little to no training. Given ridiculous workload. Had to work long shifts, often without being able to take a break. Staff was rude and mouthy, trying to be Gordon Ramsay-esque.
Pros
None
Cons
Hostile work environment

Everyone’s there to help each other. A really good place to work and everything is very well organized. They are a real team of hard workers and also encourage one another.

Moxie's is a great location to develop your skills within the restaurant industry and meet great people while you do it. I worked at the Abbotsford location for 5 years and I learned so much about the in's and out's of a commercial restaurant

For a new store with many long time employees of the company, it was not well organized to begin training. There was alot of underqualified people hired initially and they were weeded out quickly.

If you work in the morning, everyone yelling about how high the work load is. There are too few cooks for too much work. The kitchen is dirty and the food is of rushed quality as a result.
Pros
Good pay, plenty of hours
Cons
Erratic hours, high pressure, unhappy coworkers

Good environment. But inconsistent hours. A typical day would start at 730 and go till anywhere from 1pm to 8pm. I learned how to become a teams player with any personality type.

work culture was the best i've been in, but since i wasn't the fastest in the prep hall i didn't get many hours (which i can understand) but i cant do much to improve if i dont have the time to improve on the job.

Minimum wage and some weird management decisions. Hard work long hours but consistant. They're pretty fair about tips and working in the prep department wasn't bad

The average day shift consisted of preparing the various sauces, starches and meats used in the completed dishes. The difficulty of the job varied greatly as events influenced the amount of prep work required. It was great to learn about the different methods of making different foods, and how to use some of the machines.
Pros
Discounted food
