    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    They hire a similar type of person so I loved everyone I met there and most of the staff got along well. Everyone is generally outgoing and happy to help out. Training is extensive and therefore I learned a lot about customer service which I still benefit from today.

    Cons

    I worked at both a corporate and franchised location. At the corporate location, I sometimes felt over worked and that the team did not have all the necessary resources to perform their jobs to the best standard. At the franchise location, there was a lot of nepotism since employees had been there for so long. It was an easy position but I felt I was not challenged and did not receive positive reinforcement from management so lost interest in going above and beyond to fulfill my duties in this role.
