      Negative Outlook

      I have been working at Boston Pizza part-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Not much experience required Flexible hours Learn important skills for the service industry Discounts

      Cons

      A half hour was deducted from my pay each shift for a break which I didn't get. Management spent most of their time outside smoking. Management was often unprofessional and inappropriate. Dress code included a skirt and heels, which isn't practical for running around. Unpredictable hours, you never know what time you'll be done work.

      Advice to Management

      Promote from within (making hosts servers) rather than hiring new servers.

      I worked at Boston Pizza part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      You get some tips. Hours can go by fast because it is a busy environment.

      Cons

      Terrible management. High turnover rate. Hostesses are not treated well. Constantly feeling belittled by management. Not properly trained and are made to figure out many things by yourself.

      Advice to Management

      Take time to properly train your employees. Do not make them feel stupid for asking a question. The turnover rate would be so low if people were treated with respect.
