Union security but you suffer for it
Restaurant Server (Former Employee) – Vancouver BC – 26 February 2019
Worked here for over two years. Wage was high because it is union but there are no tips. The hours are dependable and there are no late nights.
When I worked there the staff was great, it was a really fun group. However, apart from the restaurant manager, management was terrible. They treated employees like it was 'us against them' and I never felt like I was valued or appreciated. The head chef refused to serve anything but fried food for staff meals even when there were salads and better foods available. He threw out the food instead.
Also because it was union, there was no team work, one time when a coffee pot was overflowing, a woman from housekeeping came and told me about it. When I asked her if she had stopped it or put something to catch the coffee under the drip she replied that it wasn't her department. She literally left coffee pouring all over the floor.
No late nights, high wage
