Awful management with unpaid hours
Barista/Cashier (Ancien employé) – Ottawa, ON – 17 juillet 2019
I worked at the heron park location that is open until 12 am, as to why a cafe has to be open until 12 am beats me. you are expected to close alone, so from 9 pm until 12 am you are alone in the store to close up EVERYTHING. I've had multiple times there I have been concerned about my safety and had to call friends to the store to walk me out.
Management is awful, we were not allowed to see who else we worked with, and most of the time your working alone regardless. We were expected to come in early or stay late in the cafe and were NOT paid for those hours, there is no punch in or out clock so you always have an unpaid 30-minute break but if you don't take it, you still don't get paid for it.
Overall the staff is awesome because they are all in it together but management doesn't value you as a human being and has said that employees are expendable.
Don't waste your time working for bad people.
