They neglect the employees, and continued to treat them poorly. The conditions of the staff room, workspaces, and such are very poorly kept and are not in good condition. Floors are leveled improperly so pools of water build up and the break room always has sewage coming up from the pipes as well as rust and water dripping from the ceilings.

I’ve worked here for 8 months and what I have noticed is that the management is veg unprofessional they don’t care about you in any way. When they hire you they tell you we promise advancement but that is a lie, this location is a very toxic place to work their is constant drama happening in certain departments . The break room is extremly unsafe for health related issues. I am not the type of person to complain but I have never worked for a company where the management is extremly unprofessional. Do not recommend to work for this company

Endless work, rude customers. The only upside to working here is the people you work with. otherwise, it's a mess that feels like you're in full blown communism. - Gross working conditions, considering that its a brand new building. - being watched over like a hawk - management really needs to not.
sometimes they give free food before it expires

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Bayview Village, ON – 5 July 2018
The hiring process was not very professional when it comes onto human rights code of conduct! He stated I wasn’t up scale enough for his clientele and that his clientele was upscale so I wouldn’t fit very disappointing
Head Barista (Former Employee) – Oakville, ON – 12 June 2018
Good hours and lots of work to be done. Learned many manager qualities. Employees were friendly and work efficiently. Workplace culture was great but never followed properly by workers or managers. Often employees worked harder than manages being the most stressful part of the job. Also, If you're able to work full time and are a decent worker - then it's guaranteed you'll be overworked!
Deli Specialist (Former Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 29 May 2018
Taking people's orders. I learned how to use a slicer and how to clean it properly. It was a nice place to work for. Great co-workers, the hardest part of the job for me was standing all day. The most enjoyable part of the day was dealing with the customers and helping out my co-workers
We got to have the food that was about to expiry for our lunch or dinner

Shame! Family run business which is running the business into the ground. Great opportunity for a buy out but till/ or if that happens, the family still thinks what worked 30 years ago, will work today!
Pastry (Former Employee) – Yorkville, ON – 15 March 2018
Management is pathetic and so unfair to employees. They find reasons to get rid of you. They work you like a dog and there’s never any appreciation. There is literally no room for advancement here. Every day you feel like you want to quit when you’re in this toxic environment. Do yourself a favour and Do not work here!!
Nothing, they even pester their employees for proof of purchasing and it’s really intrusive
Bad management, bad salary, disrespectful and rude management, they treat you badly
Pastry Expert (Current Employee) – Bayview Village – 28 February 2018
Good hours, store closes early on weekends so I still have a social life. Easy to balance work/school. Love love LOVE the food selection, I spend way too much every time I work, even with the 30% discount. My manager is really helpful and I love the team I work with. I'm in school for pastry-so working with pastries and cakes while I'm in school is a dream. Toughest part would be the setting up/taking down the counter everyday.
