    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Keg Restaurants part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The staff are very welcoming, and the training is thorough. They want to see every employee thrive both in job performance and job satisfaction. There are also numerous Keg events in various sports in which you get to socialize and compete with 50+ Keg locations across Canada.

    Cons

    Dealing with guests is sometimes not the smoothest thing, however, management is always there to assist in any way. One of the biggest cons I would say is the unpredictability of shifts, but that is standard in this industry. When serving, you have no idea when you'll be off from your shift, which makes it hard to schedule plans around work.
