Server (Current Employee) – Kleinburg, ON – 15 January 2017
At work, my job consists of always putting the guests first. I am responsible for preparing things such as water, wine, bread, pasta bowls, and coffee station before a dinner service. During dinner service, I am required to serve my tables and take care of what they need. I am also responsible for clearing, cleaning, and setting up the hall for the next day. The managers are friendly and extremely hardworking. My co-workers are dedicated to the company and also very hardworking. In the summer, I love working long and late hours. It makes me feel like I accomplished a lot.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 18 October 2018
Most of the people that work there are passive-aggressive. They don't train well and they are moody. They also don't give you advice or warnings to work better when you have done mistakes so you can learn from your mistakes, even when you are a new employee. On the weekends when it is the most busiest and stressful, you are not given any lunch breaks and this causes more stress and anxiety. Their administrative manager doesn't train new employees well.
Free lunch during Sunday brunch and they have a beautiful Chapel and banquet hall.
No lunch breaks, no proper training and most of the people that work there are passive-aggressive.
Manager (Former Employee) – Kleinburg, ON – 3 October 2018
The doctors house has been the worst experience for me. I was there for a years, way too long. Should have left before my year was up. Not enough dishes, glasss, cutlery. Always trying to find a coffee cup and utensils. Poorly managed and totally disfunctional. No overtime if you’ve worked more than an 8 hour shifts. Expected to stay after service to setup for the next days functions. No setup crew. It was just a poorly organized venue.
Even went it came to staff meals, you’re lucky if you had a meal and it was a fight to get something cooked for the staff.
Bartender (Former Employee) – Kleinburg, ON – 5 January 2017
-I was the BarBack for a few months when I started working at the Doctors House. The duties that came with that on a day to day basis were to manage all of the liquor inventory for the banquet hall, clean the 4 bars, and keep the bars supplied throughout the day. When I was promoted to bartender, I kept all duties but just for my bar. -I learned how to put many of the things I learned in school to good use. That involved solidifying my knowledge of several cocktails and brands, opening up as a person and meeting new people. -Management was good. -Co-workers were enjoyable to work with. It was a very diverse group of people. -Hardest part of the job was going home, I love bartending. In terms of actual difficulty, making drinks that ive never heard of but then you get to interact with the guest so it becomes enjoyable in the end. -The best thing about bartending at the Doctors House was meeting all the new people throughout the time I spent there.
The Doctor's House is a great place to learn cooking
