    Current Employee - Shift Supervisor 
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Jack Astor's full-time

    Pros

    Some wonderful people to work with. Will often promote within.

    Cons

    Cut backs on incentives for employees (no more Ski Week, etc.) Some managerial staff can be cut throat, happy to push others down to try and climb that ladder. Head office often rolls out new policies/food and drink creations even though they are not ready. For Salary employees (this is not me) you frequently work way over expected hours and do not get compensation for it.

        I worked at Jack Astor's part-time for less than a year

        Pros

        I was able to set my availability to work most in the evenings and weekends
