Johnny Guu

My externship at Campagnolo has been great. I get to work with fresh ingredients like fish; the menu is always changing so it keeps me on my toes; and my mentors are patient with me.

Campagnolo Restaurant

Tracie Cheung

Oliver & Bonacini is a great employer: their turnover is lower than the industry standard. They look after you and want to keep you and because of that, there is much lateral movement within the company. The people here have pride in their work and for the organization. It is akin to a family.

Canteen Restaurant

Sage Walmsley

I loved working in a smaller kitchen because I felt there was more to learn. I have learned many of the stations here and have graduated from making snacks to now making brunch for our customers.

Jennifer Jacinto

We have the best chef and colleagues here. Whenever you need something, the staff will help you and give you tips and tricks. The feedback (from Chef Darby) is immediate.

Maki Okinaga

There is a higher standard here and coming back into the industry, it’s a good chance to master the basics. I have learned so much from Chef Moto and his experience from working in a three-Michelin star restaurant. The ingredients here are of high quality and I have loved working with so many ingredients in one dish.
