Server in Ancaster Mill
on 12 December 2022
Big changes needed
Overall, Pearle has a reputation for not being a great place to work among servers and bartenders in the area. There is a constant revolving door of staff - when they do open interviews, everyone who shows up gets hired because they are desperate. There have been issues with pay in the past as well. Some managers also hold it against servers or bartenders when we make tips, as if the $18 hourly wage is supposed to compensate for that. No server or bartender would settle for that much an hour when they aren't making tips. They also put so much focus on building this HR-heavy brand and encourage you to reach out with any concerns and to participate in staff days. My advice to the company would be to forget all of that, and instead focus on keeping your staff, paying them well and letting them collect tips without any hassle.

Would avoid
Had a negative experience working under current management. Not very professional and poor work culture. As far as restaurants go, there are more which allow you to advance and respect your hard work.

Good place to start in server industry
If you want to be an industry respected server in the GTAH area, this is a good place to start. A lot of experienced hosts and server staff. Great front of house manager (when I worked there). And I was going to school full-time but my shift schedule was good for me. The shift manager was great with communicating. And I even got a slight raise before training to become a server. It worked out for me.

Great place to work
It's a great place to work. Manager and your supervisor are very supportive and helpful. Friendly coworkers. Good opportunity for growth. Lots of benefits.

Unnecessarily stressful
Hosts are expected to do everyone’s job for them. Servers hide in the kitchen on their phones. They never offer to clean their tables which is fine if they’re busy however, that is not the case because they manage to find time to complain to the host they have dirty tables. The pay is bad for the amount of work expected of you. They also over book like nobody’s business so it becomes your fault when a table who only has a hour to eat isn’t gone by the time the next reso is there. It is also not a friendly environment between servers. They constantly go to the iPad and steal tables from on-another, talk behind each others back, and don’t help each other out. It is very competitive for no reason.The worst of it all is the managers. They’re unapproachable and hide in their offices. Nothing was more annoying then having a phone call or a person at the door that needed to speak with them and the manager making me feel like garbage for going to get them. Like that’s kinda your job. The scheduling is also awful. All summer I was given maybe two three hour shifts a week. summers for students are prime working time and they just took that as an opportunity to over staff. Whole place is a joke
