Very fast paced. Especially during dinnertime and on weekends. The people there were nice. No breaks, which is a downside.
It was great until 2012 with the buy out.

The environment at California Pizza Kitchen is extremely team oriented. Everyone there knows that the best way for things to work there is by each team member doing their part to the best they can and if someone has extra time on their hands they help out eachother. There is a reason why it has stayed as popular as it has and why so many people have worked there for years, coworkers get a long well and everyone works together. It can get extremely busy and so there is a great rhythm with the workers to give the customers a great time and meal.

Mostly relaxed but very professional, however there was a lot of complaining from the staff, I did not like to participate in that, but was friends with everyone.
