Pros

-Good benefits relevant to industry standard
-Challenging, high service environment

Cons

-Complexities and bureaucracy of unionised positions
-Existence of 'not my job culture'
-New employees are disadvantaged by union seniority
-Poor scheduling
-Inconsistency of management decisions

Advice to Management

I would suggest treating new employees as more valuable, as well as recognising a job well done, not just 'room for improvement'. I would recommend that senior management cuts ties with the union, as the benefits for most employees are negligible at most.

    Pros

    great learning opportunity as quality of food is always the focus. Life work balance is relatively better than the standard in this industry.

    Cons

    Instructions from senior cooks and management can be contradicting and confusing. New hires have to "tough it out" before being promoted to full-time or even part time.


  2. Great experience however it's very stressful.

    Pros

    Great experience, really good health benefits, better salary standards than any other food and beverage jobs out there. A wonderful place for the beginners and for people who is looking for a stable job in this industry.

    Cons

    The hours are horrible, work day and night, holidays and weekends...Too much inside politics and hard to get promoted.
