    I worked at Keg Restaurants full-time

    Pros

    The benefits - discounts on food - made working more bearable when working over meal times. The staff is very friendly and becomes tight knit very quickly. Very low turnover considering it's hospitality.

    Cons

    You can get sucked in and never want to leave. Because it's so tight knit it can be very cliquey. Management has a tendency to speak down to their employees

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff with more respect, and create more social opportunities that aren't alcohol centered

    I have been working at Keg Restaurants full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great company culture, initiatives like softball tournaments, ski vacations, parties, good management training, competitive wages for non-tip workers

    Cons

    It’s still the restaurant industry. The Keg will do anything to please a guest which can be frustrating for employees, but great for business overall.

    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.
