Fantastic co-workers and very busy place
Server (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 14 August 2018
OSF is an awesome place to work... in the beginning. Great co-workers and some of the managers were pretty good as well. Unfortunately the owner, and older guy in his 60s or 70s and one of the managers play favourites to a level that I have never seen before and hope to never see again. It's disgraceful. If you are one of the favourites, you get away with anything (even getting high in the restroom). If you are not, he nitpicks every little thing you do to the point of driving you to tears or making a lot of people quit.
He treats people like slaves, won't let you eat anything, even if you are working a double shift with no break.
Another thing that drives down the morale is the corporate policy of getting the customer get away with whatever they want. Because of places like OSF we have a screwed up, entitled society.
I saw the owner giving attitude to a busser because he was washing his hands 'too much'. So he doesn't care about cleanliness and safety either.
About the tips. It's very hard to make great tips even when you are crazy busy.
