I worked as an event server at Whistle Bear for 2 years and I am so happy that I finally quit. While I loved most of the people I worked with and we had some good times, the job itself was terrible. You get 1 UNPAID 30 min break with leftover food and are expected to work up to 14 hours. The management is terrible and the schedule is never out on time. You get in trouble when you ask for days off (when you rarely even ask for them) IF THEY EVEN REPLY TO YOUR EMAILS (which they usually do not). VERY stressful environment and way too long of hours. If you are considering working here, do yourself a favour, and don't.
There’s a great work environment. Always happy coming into work with the people I see every day. Every is always happy. Yes, it’s long hours usually on weekends but everyone is nice and friendly here. The chefs do help you and teach stuff that you didn’t already know. Highly recommend working at this establishment. Management is great, will work with you for vacations when needed.
Management is terrible and does not care about the staff. Schedules are made to suit the need of the managers/supervisors and the time off that they want with no regard for anyone else. Breaks are deducted from your pay but you rarely get to take them and are made to feel guilty when you do. $3 is deducted per shift for a “staff meal” which half the time you don’t even get or is scraps of leftovers from an event
Worked at WB for a summer and could not wait to finish. Good hours, but not nearly enough compensation for what we do. Will work a 13 hour shift with one unpaid 30min break and *staff meal* that is actually just hours old leftovers from the weddings that come off your pay check. Coupled with the managers getting mad when you sit down for a 3 minute break at 1am - not worth it. Communication is also horrible. Our last pay check we were told after not getting the direct deposit per usual was actually in the form of a check - went to go pick it up and was told they were not ready. Overall just a really disappointing job with management treating the servers horribly.
Horrible management. I was hired for a part time position just before training for all new hires began and the only shift I got in 3 months was because I had to pick it up myself. Hours go from 3pm-4am and you get one 30 minute unpaid break. Co-workers seemed friendly, management was rude. Only good part was the staff meals.
My teenager worked for Whistle Bear for far too long with horrible hours and no respect. The servers are expected to work 10-13 hour shifts with only one UNPAID 30 min break. Oh and don't try to be good at your job because management will want to keep you there and never give you a chance to move up. ALSO, servers don't see a cent of gratuity or tips. Schedules are never out in time, emails are rarely replied to and management gets mad when you book one day off a year when you're only a part-time worker. I am so happy my child quit because of the never-ending stories of how horrible every shift was.
Most coworkers are so nice and fun
Long hours, management cannot handle job, no tips/grats
I have loved working with kind and fun people but the management is very poor. Does not care about your mental health or valid reasons for time off. Hours are poor with one half hour break for 13 hour shifts. Get yelled at for eating a cracker. Gives false promises. I could go on for as long as the shifts they give you, but no time for that.
A very busy club with lots to do. Plenty of hours for anyone looking for a summer position. Great job with a great membership. Highly recommend for students looking for with a labour job in turf care or customer service on the golf services side of things.
Incredible place to work. Everybody is so nice and the environment is all centered around a game which every person who is there is having fun doing. As an instructor it is very gratifying knowing you're helping somebody get better at a game that they love
winter months are very slow
Job changes from supervisor to supervisor. some of them very rude and mean. Work from 3 in the afternoon until 3 in the morning and get yelled at in front of others for things I didn't do - don't need that kind of treatment. Managers don't seem to care. Has gotten worse as time goes on. Co-workers are good and fun to be with and make the job barely tolerable. I work at another club that pays better and treats people better - would be there all the time but they can't give me more hours.
Co-workers, good staff food
Managers don't care about you - just a body to fill space
good work environment with nice people. was able to gain skills in communications with the guest. learned how to work in teams and do everything on the clock. hours are in the afternoon till after midnight. the most satisfying feeling is making peoples events go really well and having them compliment your service.
