    Pros

    I was around the most tasteful food..

    Cons

    I worked at this location for 2 years and I never got a break... Whether I worked 5-7 hours.. I always had to keep standing and working. If I sat down for five minutes I was demanded to do another duty. I never got vacation pay or holiday pay, and I never got payed for training. It is very biased in terms of race. If you come in you know they will never hire anyone of " white or black" it is always Tamils or Indians. It is very favouritism. The owners chose one particular girl they are family friends with and they talk in their language through out the shift while you work. It is the worst place to work at!!

    Advice to Management

    I have visited other locations, such as richmondhill, downtown, missuaga, eglinton and I have realized they all have such great family bond and they are very welcoming. But the markham location is very biased and mistreats their employees. An advice is to keep in touch how your franchise managers are handling their employees because from what I have seen, cooperate ran franchise are flexible with their employees and respects them Better than this location.

    Pros

    Great employer with long term opportunities for growth within the business. I was very happy with my employment and the team were vey much like a family.

    Cons

    Lack of training and very busy atmosphere meant that new trainees had a diluted version of quality customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Investing in current employees through time and education is way to avoid a high turnover of staff and ensure commitment.
