Hostess (Former Employee) – Aldergrove, BC – 31 August 2018
Management was great. The customers were respectful. I worked at this job for a short time only after surgery and wasn't ready to go back after a major surgery, The manager was so kind and understanding of my situation and told me I would always be welcome there.
Fulltime cook (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 28 August 2018
worked with a few good workers, but as like myself, never stayed very long...new management didn't have a clue how to run a restaurant...interpersonal clashes were very common place...the use of other language rather than english was a constant issue ...
one free meal per shift and employee discount at other locations for employee's
constant changing of shifts without proper notification to staff
Greeter/Expo/Carhop (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 27 August 2018
My first job at WhiteSpot, I had the opportunity to be able to work along side my best friends throughout high school. With the different positions I learned to work it provided me life time skills and experience for the near future.
Line Cook (Current Employee) – Langford, BC – 22 August 2018
Great place to work, amazing management! Fast paste work. Constantly learning new skill sets. Long hours good pay! They are always taking care of their staff. Any issues are ran by management. They have your best interest when booking time off.
Food Runner (Current Employee) – bc – 15 August 2018
If you have been a server this is the place for you, but in any other front of house position, you will suffer, due to slow or no advancement and minimum wage unless you're a manager. They don't really care about keeping their employs and will over staff to the point that no one will get work every summer. overall a fun and good place to work with fantastic people
Line Cook/Dishwasher (Former Employee) – 405 dunsmir street – 3 August 2018
So my boss ,deside to fire me because I couldn't work in their kitchen when I was their for a year and a half. Like come on besides my attitude I was fine. I was great with everyone in the kitchen and even the servers everyone loved but the manager. But ya that the real reason why.
Host (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 25 July 2018
Had such a negative experience working here . There were so much bullying around and nevertheless management did absolutely nothing about it. Constant gossips and dramas and never ending negetivites on a daily basis made the work environment so unbearably toxic. It was significantly affecting me and for those like me who were simply just going there to make some monthly ends meet. On top of it all, there was some serious back of the house and infront of the house communication problems during high peaks of the restaurant . Lots of blaming, lots of frustration, and lack of respect. Restaurant was running as not like a “whole” but rather like two split sides of the restaurant. It also had a very high turn over rate then your usual restaurant for all of those following reasons . I would avoid working here at least at the location that I worked for. God bless those that are still working in that poor, sad restaurant .
Garbage management leads to untenable environment.
Hostess (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 20 July 2018
Awful management made this job the worst in my experience. Getting yelled at right on the floor, in front of the guests, for simply trying to do my job right. Hours reduced so low we can't live off the one job, or get benefits. There was the expectation that we'll answer the phone, accept any shift, at any time of day or night, any day of the week. I love the food, and the experience I had as a guest, but I 100% don't recommend working here.
Line Cook (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 8 July 2018
Salary is low for the amount of work done, Management fairly incompetent. Training is downright terrible, you will be unprepared to do the job. They assign a lot of split shifts. Workers there do not care about putting proper dates on any of the food.
Good environment with friendly staff. A good place for a first job.
Take Out/ Hostess (Former Employee) – West Vancouver, BC – 4 July 2018
A typical day at work would be going from a slow pace to fast pace and taking takeout orders, talking to guests, cleaning tables, running food to tables. I bettered my social skills, and learned essential skills for life. The hardest part of the job was sometimes working multiple jobs that multiple people are supposed to do but being the only one scheduled. The most enjoyable part was the great staff members and the regular customers that would come in get to know. The management was mostly OK. A lot of managers would go through this location, and not many stayed long.
65% staff meals(one meal per shift) + 15% off meals when not working
Waitress (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 21 June 2018
I enjoyed working there as the hours were generous as well as the people I worked with became my good friends. The management however had some difficulty maintaining respect with the employees. Some managers were quite nice and easy to work with which made the environment enjoyable to be in. But, the GM at the time was not polite, nor enjoyable to work with and it made coming to work a hassle.
Line Cook/Prep Cook (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 20 June 2018
You don't get paid much at all , minimum wage for a lot of work so it's not really fair. They definitely could do better with the pay. Other than that though bit was a fine place to work they treated you like family and the tips were alright.
Fast-paced, social environment with friendly staff and good food!
Hostess (Current Employee) – West Vancouver, BC – 30 May 2018
Working at White Spot is always an adventure. A typical day looks fairly busy, but is easily handled as the staff work well together and have bubbly personalities, the energy is always warm and welcoming. Managers & staff strive to make sure everything is in order and customers are pleased with their service, I personally recommend White Spot for families as the overall vibe is quite appropriate for younger audiences.
My favourite part of the job is interacting with customers, making them feel welcome and making sure they leave satisfied. The hardest part is bussing tables. Well, it's not hard but it's definitely not the most enjoyable!
Overall my time at White Spot is well spent and I love working there!
discounts on food, wonderful staff, fun environment, always busy, flexible
Fountain Chef (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 28 May 2018
Wished I continued to work there but I had to quit as they weren't able to give me the time off to go to China with my family during Spring Break. Learned a lot as my first job and had to learn how to prioritize things. Difficult starting out as training was not readily available as the trainer was too busy with his work to train me properly.
60% off Meals, reliable staff, friendly environment
Very busy on the weekend, short notice with scheduling, understaffed.
