Templeton was a relaxed semi fine dining restaurant that was pretty easy going to work for, the coworkers were nice but the trick is usually people don't come back the following season so its pretty much like an opening restaurant every season.

No training, no communication. They have 10 managers and none of them have any clue what is going on. They just throw you to the wolves and expect the place to be fine dining. The only positive is that you work on the water but they try really hard to ruin that joy. Worst restaurant I have ever worked in.

They almost assure you have a job, then at the last minute they say not interested.Very unorganized, training is close to zero. Expectations are high, but no training, just do what it takes to get through the shift.

I enjoyed my time at Templeton Landing and gained valuable life experience by working there. Management was a bit unorganized and I believe this is mostly because the turnover rate is so high. The downside of working at this restaurant is it is seasonal. Working there for the past three summers, each summer someone new steps in. It is hard to find a consistent way of managing that works for the restaurant because new people take over each year. My co-workers were great to work with. The atmosphere was fun and vibrant. With canal side growing, so did the Templeton crowd. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the large number of guests because the restaurant simply could not hold everyone. The most enjoyable part was seeing people have such a great time. What I miss the most is the many customers I got to know personally and would come back and ask for me. I love getting to know people and that is what helps make the job that much more enjoyable!
