Not bad to get started in the industry

Avis en vedette

L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
You'll learn about speed, cleanliness, multitasking and how to work under time frames. That's really about it though. There's not much room for advancement as company is trying to save as much as possible. So don't expect a raise unless you do something to save the company some $$$. The pay is not amazing. During the interview I was told that with the more responsibility i took I would get paid more. I haven't seen any of that and I've been crosstrained on every single station. The owner and GM take most of the tips, as this is not an "actual restaurant". They give tips based off of hours, it can range from $0.50 to $2.00 an hour depending on how well they thought you did that month. Work/life balance? Nope. None of that. Some of my coworkers were working full day shifts (11:00-22:00), with a 1-3 hour break. *With no OT*. For 6 days straight! WHAT! They are always so understaffed, it's almost impossible to call in sick because everyone who can cover your shift is already working or they can't because they've already worked or are going to be working 6 days already. Kitchen was very unorganized, at least the one I worked at. The GM had his own system that everyone had to follow, the hard part was that it was all in his head and he would tell you verbally or had to remind you. There was no organization there at all. I had to keep a notebook to write down all the procedures. Learning to multitask will help you a lot here, as they don't give you any time to prep or back up. I found a lot of the times that I had to cook my food, prep, and make sure I had back up's - 

Points positifs

Fun staff, self learning, teamwork, fast paced, good equipment, the stations are fun to learn

Points négatifs

Long hours, no OT, lack of organization, management loves when you make mistakes and keeps them for records, monotonous, watching lots of people get fired and hired

This Job Ruined My Life

If you want an abusive boss, unlikable coworkers, illegal underpay, and your spirit to break, this place is for you! Working here destroyed my life for almost a year. These places are franchised so this is not for every Via Cibo but it's one that is notoriously the worst rated one in Calgary.I was a server here and would work almost everyday of the week. The worst days were the ones when the part-owner would come in and verbally abuse all his employees. I'm talking literal insults and yelling. We were always understaffed so there would be only one server and two cooks working at a time. It would get crazy busy and your life would be over if you made one small mistake. I've developed a fear of making mistakes in the workplace along with a fear of asking for help from my coworkers because of this place. Even if you were 100% right about something like spelling, the boss will decide he's right no matter how much proof you show him. If there was a single crumb on a shelf you'd be yelled at.That's not the worst part though. I was allowed to keep tips maybe four times total, and 3/4 times it was only $5. This isn't like a normal restaurant, but you're still serving and working hard enough to deserve the tips you make. My boss would also make us clock-out early while we kept working. Literally getting less than minimum wage for extra stress. My boss, a single childless man, told me, a struggling female student, that I don't deserve full pay because I don't have a husband and kids yet. WHAT?I don't fully blame my unlikable co-workers because I know a lot of them felt the same - 

Points positifs

I got free food a few times

Points négatifs

Literally everything else

I loved everything about working there except the manger

The manager was often slacking and untrustworthy. The manager often took advantage of their employees by putting their responsibilities on the employees under them without a justified raise or promotions. Other than the manager, it was lovely working there.

Points négatifs

short or no breaks

If I could rate no stars I would

I am a former employee, this place is the worst place to work at.... It's very slow and you give the owners your tips every time you work and they split it up with out making it mandatory for you to track them and they pool everyone's tips so even if you track yours there is no information on everyone's tips so you could and are getting ripped off. Took them a month and a half to give me my first tips and it was devistatling under 100.00. They are dishonest and will waste your time they given you kitchen side duties and janitor duties make you work for minimum wage and screw up your tips. Management was very disorganized and a lot of people were emotionally unstable crying during shifts because of managers miss treating them. Not very professional. -1/5 review . Don't waste your time.

Nothing

Worst job I ever had

If I had a genie in a lamp I would use 1 wish to prevent myself from ever applying and the other 2 to keep all other people on earth from applying. But the best I can do is this review. I received less than 5% of my tips because they were "pooled" and the managment was utter garbage.

Not the same place anymore

Ever since the new owner the place has gone to cr*p. Don't apply unless you like mouldy food, horrible health practices, a snake of an owner, and running the risk of killing someone. Cheers!

terrible place to work

I worked there for about 3 weeks , and I was hired with at least 6 other dishwashers. The management didnt communicate with anyone or with each other, somedays there were 5 dishwashers working together at the same time. I was called about 3 weeks into my job that they didnt have any hours left and I wasnt capable of working there anymore. This was terrible because of the management. They didnt even give out free food like normal restaurants.

Points positifs

no pros

Points négatifs

terrible management

ok for entry job into service industry in front of house

CONS many split shifts for Front of House and Back of House. entire days taken up for perhaps 6 hours work total. Shifts often cut early, so you can work for 1 hour and wait all day to work 3 more. Upper management expects employees to attend mandatory free meetings. benefits are none unless you're management, and wages are extremely low, but there are tips advancement is almost nothing. they promote females much more than males managers and chefs are good but overworked by upper management, which does not like to staff the restaurant adequately because of the cost of labour. upper management does not regard any input or ideas from non-management staff. PROS the chef makes very good menus, cares about customers and is professional. back of house gets tips as well as front of house OVERALL employees have low morale and not many opportunities to advance hours are unpredictable all in all, a good place to learn the basics of italian cooking for back of house and learn serving and customer service for front of house. it's alright if the person is promoted but expect to be overworked as a salaried manager

Points positifs

good to learn basics

Points négatifs

hours cut and negative company culture

Terrible Job - Don't waste your time

Job Work/Life Balance: -Hours are terrible. Sometimes you'll come in on a slow day, work for 2 hrs, get a 2-3 hr break, then have to work again for maybe 2 hrs. -Managers are under qualified. Usually slack off and pretend to walk around, or get frustrated and panic easily during a rush or a problem. -Managers will lie and make false promises to get you to do things. Salary/Benefits: -Servers can't keep their own individual tips. BOH receives a good portion compared to other jobs (its an even pool that is distributed based on hours). -Servers are paid less (which is weird with the way tips are done). -They think $14/hr is way too much for a BOH worker. Job Security/Advancement: -Never going to get a real promotion. They may train you multiple stations, but don't think you're going to get a good promotion or pay raise. -If you have any problems with management your hours will be dropped to 0 (has happened to myself and multiple past employees) yet they wont fire you. -If you try to take anytime off, or anything to change the schedule, they will try to "punish" you by making your next schedule have almost no hours. -They don't know how to make a schedule at all. Takes them about 4 days to do it, and yet they still will schedule people on multiple days where they're not available. Additionally they'll still expect you to work it even though it's their fault for messing up the schedule. Management: -Absolutely terrible. Inexperienced, and terrible work ethic. -Will slack off constantly yet pretend to be doing work. -Will set unrealistically high expectations - 

Points positifs

Tips are good for BOH.

Points négatifs

Servers dont keep their tips, Paying for Food, Management is terrible

A truly learning experience

It's an awesome place by all means and there's a greater sense of team working. The employer invests in the training and development of its staff. The best part is you're accommodated in view of your individual needs and they're more than willing to make adjustments accordingly!
