Leaders didn't show interest in lower level employees and they were deemed disposable very easily - little room for advancement and a very catty culture.

Overall, working at The Drake Hotel was a great experience for me to learn and grow as a cook. Being able to be a versatile cook was great, because I was able to to share the responsibility handling the line, parties, and prep service. The people are great and very friends, everyone brings their own flair into the kitchen.
Pros

ça m'a aidé dans mon relationnel avec les clients, dans la manière de m'exprimer correctement en anglais même si j'étais bilingue bien avant, ça m'a apporté une manière de m'exprimer plus correcte.

Typical Brunch Weekend I am working with some of the most interesting, kindest people I have ever met, in a very large and very busy, cultured venue. Serving guests from all over the world with the highest level of customer service and welcoming them to the city of Toronto and giving them advice on how to explore it. As a Manager I am providing solutions to my teammates when things become stressful and hectic or problems occur. Helping my teammates has been the most rewarding, knowing what they experience and how I can be of help, and seeing the impact I've made on their day immediately. If I can help make their job easier, it means they can give the best care to our guests.
Pros
Culture, Teamwork, Leadership, Flexibility, Working Indoors + Outdoors, Meeting New Interesting People, Immediate Feedback
Cons
No Room to Grow, Long Hours On Your Feet
