Line Cook in Victoria, BC
on 9 June 2022
Like Any other Line Cook Job
Its a relatively easy job monotonous job. Typical work day is relatively simple, cook the recipes and clean up. Management is good and easily accessible. Was working as a student job and most other people were also students and made them easily available to hang out and make friends with.
General Manager in Vancouver, BC

No respect for work life balance, not a lot of support from HO. There are some incredibly nasty area managers.
I worked at White Spot for almost twenty years before I quit in disgust at the way the company was evolving. I do not recommend working in management at this organization.

Teamwork and kindness
As a manager in this company, the culture created by my superiors has facilitated mutual respect between management and employees. Employees are constantly there to lend a helping hand and you can tell they genuinely care about their job, and the managers care about them. Outside of my work week I am rarely called or bothered, and the work/life balance is the best I’ve personally experienced in any restaurant thus far.There is mutual respect and minimal arguing between the front and back of house.
Server in Victoria, BC

Great Place to Serve
I served at a unionized Whitespot, and so they did have job security. Very fast paced, high-volume. But they only required a 2% tip out, and so as a server I made a lot of money (and the kitchen staff is paid well with a high wage). Great place to serve.
Server in Vancouver, BC

Stressful
I worked there for 9 years, and believe me when I say I was a great server but management had a hard time seeing that. The environment was toxic and so much favouritism from management which was obvious for most people there. Head office is not that great with complaints either, they act like they are doing something about an issue but need evidence and say things that don’t help. I did have some fun times working there but I would NOT recommend anyone working there especially if you want your mental health to stay healthy
