Job at Keg
Food Expeditor (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON2 November 2019
Atmosphere is very relaxed. Little to no management in the morning for back of house and they trust you to do what you need to do. Little to no micromanaging. Able to relax and eat after a shift.

Only down side is it is very cliquey. Many people have stayed for years and have kept their small friend groups. If you don't care about social politics then it won't bother you.

Lots of staff partes.

Fast-paced and stressful, yet rewarding
Busser (Former Employee) –  Abbotsford, BC31 October 2019
Management was for the most part very good. Working as a busser was very fast-paced and did not have time for breaks throughout most shifts. The people I met were very great people and the community was very fun.

Waitress (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON28 October 2019
I was with The Keg for ten years and it’s provided me with lifelong friendships and so much experience. The service industry is tough but if you’re going to give it a go, this is the place to do so.
Pros
Tips, culture, management
Cons
Late nights, irregular hours

Management doesn't care about you.
Worker (Current Employee) –  Oshawa, ON23 October 2019
At all. They won't give you a raise... They won't care if you need to be off for other more important endeavors in your life... They will not give you any performance reviews... They won't move you up in the restaurant and you will have to constantly remind them that you want to... They will hire staff that are probably getting payed the same as you and you have been there for many years... It's a real shame.

Floor Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON22 October 2019
The Keg always hires staff that fit well in their company culture. This is why once you're hired as a Kegger, you are a Kegger for life! Their on-shift perks are good (staff food), and you're guaranteed to always have good staff around you too.

Kitchen Manager (Current Employee) –  Moncton, NB18 October 2019
My particular store has been great! The senior management (or General Manager) understands a need for work and home life balance and is extremely catering to that!

They encourage a team effort even during social events, like baseball.
Prep Cook/Custodian (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON15 October 2019
It is a good place to learn the business first hand and you can move up the ladder if you show the initiative. It is also a very good place to learn good service without being over the top. You will know your product and how to sell it.
Pros
40%discount
Cons
Our particular stores don't really value women the way they should.

Manager/ line cook/busser/prep cook/dishwasher (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON12 September 2019
The keg is a good place to work to start but the management is terrible. They are judgemental and often do not give staff the opportunity to advance in their careers. I put in 60 hour weeks and got promoted to management. Was then fired/demoted 4 weeks later for "poor communications skills"

Amazing place to work, quite fun, can be stressful
Dining Room Server (Current Employee) –  Vaughan, ON10 September 2019
Work mainly evenings and weekends. Takes time away from my social life, however you develop a different kind of social life from working in this type of environment. Your co-workers become a family where you're accepted and appreciated. They have many social events and sports tournaments that all the employees and managers get to participate in and get to know one another much better.

It's a very fun working atmosphere that can also be very high-paced and stressful at times depending on the season. Management does definitely make work easier as they are there to help you in any way that is needed.

I've been able to grow as a person since I started working here, giving me many opportunities to take some time off to go explore the world and to travel. They are a company that likes to have people that are constantly working to better themselves and it's a great blessing to have.
