Fun workplace with certain staff, hard to bear with others. Used to have team building activities, now do not.
Line Cook (Former Employee) – Belleville, ON – 4 May 2019
A typical day at work consists of clocking in at 10:30AM, and getting right to prepping fries, onion rings, carrots, celery as well as replacing any missing items, ex. we have no grilled chicken so I will pull the required amount out of the freezer to last throughout the day. I learned mostly how to keep calm and stay organized during a rush. Management has always been good and easy to get along with throughout my time at Wild Wings. Workplace culture is loud, due in portion to the deep fryers and merry chef running but also due to co-workers yelling a bit more than needed. Aside from that, most cooks have been very easy to get along with and moderately easy to train, minus a few I will not mention and servers were usually easy to get along with unless they carried an ego around with them. Hardest part of the job was trying to keep my cool when servers would delay me from doing my prep, and the most enjoyable part was working alongside one of my best friends.
Working with one of my best friends.
Used to have free lunches then changed to half off out of nowhere.

There would be 1 server at all times even when it was really busy, got too overwhelming and you had to do everything on your own. Training is just following around another server for like a shift or two, there is not much structure to the training or to your duties.
not understanding or accommodating to your schedule, you do all the jobs as a "server" other than cooking

It was the worst place to work at, the staff was really good but the management was uneducated and never really cared for there employees. Things cant be improved with them but the staff makes the restaurant run smoothly
my overall review the worst wild wings i have ever stepped foot in as an employee and customer

Wild wing is a great part time job while you're in university. They are very flexible in creating a schedule that fits with your availability the staff is amazing and if you ever need a shift covered everyone is overly helpful.
Waitress and Bartender (Current Employee) – Angus, ON – 30 August 2018
Very enjoyable and rewarding job great place to better your skills as a server, very well run business and enjoyable atmosphere. The hardest part of the job is surprising rushes when the restaurant is understaffed. Hard work but pays off
Cook (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 18 July 2018
Very easy to say it’s a nice restaurant until you experience the cooks picking up wings off the ground and not changing the oil in the fryers for several days or the waitresses lying about prices and not cleaning properly, I’m surprised wild wings is still in business and the manager still has a job there is they do
Server/Bartender (Former Employee) – Wasaga Beach, ON – 14 April 2018
The lady acting as gm was not qualified and unfortunately has a drinking problem which would render her absent when she was needed most at busy times, and useless when her staff would have to physically pull her from the bar across the lot. She was threatened by staff she had that was hard working and beneficial as they made her look bad to the absentee/silent owner at the time so they would leave. She staffed the kitchen with mostly family members who were not reprimanded for mistakes and/or unprofessional work ethics. Didn't take long for customers to realize what was going on as it rarely has more then a few cars in the parking lot.
