As it was my first job ever, it was quite beneficial for me to work there while attending high school as it allowed me to receive a stable income. In this job I was able to further develop my kitchen skills which are still useful to this day.

The location I worked at was highly focused on hiring low-level staff and promoting current staff members. I was able to learn a lot about cooking through working my way up, eventually working every station in the kitchen at some point or another.
Pros
Free Lunch, Polite Managers, Recognition of Hard Work
Cons
None

If you are a young person looking for work for a brief time I would reccomend, staff is all very friendly and accomadating but not a lot of room for advancement, feels dead end.

Working at Fionn MacCool's was fun and I met many great people. The job was challenging. I was in a management position and had to balance working as a server and as a FOH manager. I enjoyed the fast pased work style and honed my skills at food service.

This company allowed me to grow within the individual restaurant and also provided opportunities to grow outside the store. I would highly recommend working for any Prime Pub/Cara restaurant.

Great place to work. The management is experienced and know how to deal with their staff and customers. Many staff hold multiple jobs and they are very accommodating to the needs of their staff.

It may have just been because it was a new restaurant but managers were so rude to hostess and unfair. I never got hours and was yelled at infront of customers a few times.

Pros
I had a discount on food and drinks and it was in a good location.

The hours and shifts are unpredictable.

It's good working there as you have gaps in between the rush hour to prepare meals for the line and the preps for the batch line. As I am Asian, having to interact with Canadians is a worthwhile experience and is good for me to accustom myself in a Canadian workplace. The hardest part of the job is when you're in the middle of the rush hour, but it doesn't prevent you to have a time-out and get a drink of coffee and have fun sometimes.

A typical day at work is usually steady. There is always something to be doing, cleaning, and preparing food for guests. I have learned multiple new ways to time to manage food preparation times to accelerate my skills of speed and accuracy. The management is very personable. They care very much about how the company is run, but it is also essential to them that our well being as well. The hardest part of the job is focusing on one thing at a time. The most enjoyable is the people I work around.
Pros
Good co-workers
Cons
Sparse Hours

Hard to get regular hours - to be expected in the restaurant industry. Decent pay. Managers can pick favourites, also to be expected. Relaxed environment.

They, really need to remodel their hosts.
A typical day at work was hot and sweaty environment and no real benefits.

Overall in that workplace there was nothing really good like all the work stations were so cramped and the long hours are really not needed.
Pros
Free Meals after training
Cons
Hosts and Long Hours

Felt very poorly treated. in the middle of a busy shift, the manager likes to come upstairs and randomly start seating people so he looks good, without considering my placement of people or the waitlist I had created. Very domineering management and objectifying uniforms for women only. Irregular shifts that can change any moment, and no regular schedule.
