Prep Cook Reviews

What is it like working as a Prep Cook?

Prep Cook in Westlock:
"Boston Pizza prep cook."
Pros: I like how the company does have room, so to say, for employees to move around, I could become a server or a manager in the future. I also like how they take the proper measures to ensure you are trained and will have little to no stress at the work place.
Cons: I do not like how long it has taken the company to complete a performance review, or get back to me on a pay raise. Also, there are times where I will not have shifts for weeks on end, or even just one every two weeks.
