Shift Lead (Current Employee) – Greater Sudbury, ON – 31 March 2018
great deal of turnover, filthy, not enough labor scheduled for the restaurant, upper management are a huge problem and its a wonder this place has not been run into the ground. the money was good, but they will work you in to the ground and put you in situations where they set you up to fail time after time. upper management forced shift leaders to keep the restaurant open with no heat, no hot water, and clogged drains. just an all around terrible experience.
Cook (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 22 March 2018
I am a lead cook so I would work the meats and egg grill and cook. I would also be in charge of maintaining the kitchen line and the other cooks making sure breaks are run properly. The hardest part of the job is trying to memorize the new menus. The culture was good everyone is friends and gets along.
Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 8 February 2018
typical day at work is just washing dishes cleaning the back of house and maintain cleanliness. just like working at any other restaurant sometimes it was stressful hardest part was working holidays because the restaurant would be packed for at least 4-6 hours.
Back of House Supervisor (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 4 December 2017
Everyday was learning something new and engaging with other coworkers. the hardest part of the job would be needing to handle customer complaints should the food not be made the way they would prefer based on what we were required to follow ie: food handling guide lines. The most enjoyable part was learning different food preparation techniques and ways to cook.
Dishwasher/Meal prep (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 19 September 2017
Working for perkins was fun and generally a great environment. Apart from the low income the overnight hours and the job itself wasnt what i seen fit for myself. Washing dishes 5 days a week just wasnt what i saw myself doing and i knew i had way more potential. Therefore i left and get myself a new full-time position.
Server (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 27 July 2017
Management cares more about themselves than customers and staff, favouritism is huge, no staff meetings to discuss problems (piece of paper demanding what is to be done). Never again will I work for this company.
short shifts (sometimes one hour), no teamwork, disorganized
Host and expediter (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 11 May 2017
So my experience working here was horrible, no communication, hours/promotions that were guaranteed were never followed through. My typical day at work as a host, would be me basically being there cheap maintenance man and janitor that they never hired. I learned that you shouldn't always trust management with promises that they make. The hardest part of the job was being a gopher for the general manager. There was also no recognition for doing the job right. The workplace culture.... is very negative. I find that the hardest part of working for perkins was no communication what so ever, as well as no proper training but for the most enjoyable part of the job was working with some of the good staff, and working with the customers.
