    I worked at Recipe Unlimited Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good friendships made through work

    Cons

    Head office not sure what they want to launch and work on and cant plan or launch anything effectively. Extremely long hours. 6-7 days a week. Upwards of 18 hours a day. Never a raise to compensate. No personal life. Poor direction. No support for positions that are empty. They will watch you drown.

    Advice to Management

    Dont do it.

    Server/Bartender in Oakville, ON

    I worked at Recipe Unlimited Corporation

    Pros

    Friendly work environment, performance based scheduling, able to make lucrative amount of tips (sometimes over $300 a night) made lasting relationships, time flies, job isn't stressful, flexible schedules, mostly good management, ability to move up. Overall great experience.

    Cons

    Dying brand, head office are jerks but they're only there on occasion, long hours (but the longer you work the more you make). Dont usually get weekends but you get used to it. Standing a lot, a lot of walking and blisters. Pressure to look "like your going to the party, not coming from one".

    Advice to Management

    Dont be lazy, dont be mean and back our decisions (within reason)

    I have been working at Recipe Unlimited Corporation part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Co-workers were great. Good team environment. Reasonably good pay for the position. Looks like there was opportunity to grow if you stayed with company.

    Cons

    Upper management did not always recognize the hard work and effort that was put in. Could have used more training. Sometimes involved long hours.
