    Pros

    Looks good on your CV.

    Cons

    The management is horrendous, lots of yelling and slave labour, you don't get paid over time, but can expect 15hours shifts, and anything over 40 hours gets banked. 1 of the cooks has over 100 hours not paid, bounced checks, very disrespectful, they have employees that have been there since the beginning, and make them work well past retirement with little raises, and no pension. The pay is extremely low, absolutely terrible place, I would never recommend it as a job. The owner has said he would rather under pay people, and suffer once he gets a lawsuit because it costs less then actually paying his employs. Please, never apply here.

    Pros

    Having this restaurant on your CV seems to open doors

    Cons

    The owner is disrespectful, hateful and condescending. There isn't a shift where he's not screaming and yelling so loud his voice cuts out. Much of the staff is consistently high or intoxicated on the job. I've seen certain waiters add items to bills in order to consume themselves/get a bigger tip for the larger bill after all the add-ons. Tips not always divided equally, which leads to staff arguing amongst themselves on a day to day basis. If the staff bathrooms are any indication of how this restaurant treats their employees, it is clear that the employees receive zero appreciation from this place. If an inspector sized up this restaurant I'm certain there would be fines to pay. Schedules are a mess, they own you. This is hands down the most negative environment I have worked in.

    Pros

    You have the potential to make more money at this restaurant then any other in the city. Bragging rights that you work at "the best" restaurant in Montreal.

    Cons

    Management focuses on the bad things that they do very hostile towords employees with a lack of respect that starts with the owner and trickles down through management They do not pay all your hours they play favorites and managers seem to accept bribes no employee benefit package
