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

    Pros

    Friendly, fun and amazing coworkers

    Cons

    No days off, chronically short staffed, unperdictable shifts, long cook times on special items even though we are timed for them, no benefits even when multiple employees requested dental, no sick days leading to an employee nearly dying of viral meningitis, BP learning takes hours to complete and you are not paid and are not allowed to complete it during shifts, huge micro management problem, some waitresses were very...

    Advice to Management

    Be professional. Dont touch the female employees. Maybe spend some time learning about your kitchen and respect the chefs who work long tiring hours. Stop micro-managing and some benefits would improve employee moral exponentially.

    I have been working at Boston Pizza full-time

    Pros

    Lots of perks at Rogers Arena, quarterly parties, amazing Christmas parties and good bonuses IF the company does well (overall).

    Cons

    Be prepared for a lot of fraternizing. If you aren't in the "inner circle", there's a good chance you won't get the raise you are looking for. Promotions in finance are giving based on how well the VP/CFO likes you. Some team members get promotions faster than others - this depends on fraternization.

    Advice to Management

    Be professional. It's very obvious who you like and who you have to "tolerate" in the work environment.
