      I have been working at Boston Pizza part-time

      Pros

      Openwork environment and great for extroverts who enjoy interacting with alot of new people on a regular basis. Provides a rushing during peak times and can be really busy.

      Cons

      Lack of employee appreciation and acknowledgement for hard work. There is no standard system for all BP employees, each franchise is different.

      Advice to Management

      Pay for attention to employee appreciation. Despite having mostly part-time employees, they are still valuable members of the team and need to feel appreciated as they sometimes work fulltime hours which are long and tiring
