Great Personal relationships
Cashier and customer service (Current Employee), Orillia, ONOctober 1, 2014
Pros: co-worker relationships
Cons: low pay
Working in the food industry has little room for advancement, being a part of a team is rewarding. Often times having such a strong relationship with my co-workers was the reason I continued to be employed at A&W. However, moving on in my career field seems like the best option for me. Working customers service can be physically and emotionally draining – more... and the pay isn't ideal. – less

Store Front cashier (Former Employee), Cambridge, ONSeptember 18, 2014
Pros: discounts
Cons: long hours and very judgemental people
A typical day at work started with working with customers and ended with cleaning the entire store and doing dishes.

I learned how to handle money as well as work with customers and get the job done quickly and with good quality.

Management, though some people in management were focused on who is going to get assistant manager to the point they didn't – more... matter who they went through to get it. There where only two supervisors that I could trust.

The co-workers that I had were very fun to work with and always helped me if I where to struggle.

The hardest part of the job was working with people who treated me in a very rude way.

The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to learn new skills to take me further in the future. – less

Full-Time Prep and Line Cook (Former Employee), Kingston, ONMay 26, 2014
Pros: half price lunches, really great owners
Cons: management was not the best, improper food safety practices
opening the restaurant at 6 a.m. for breakfast, making orders for walkins and drive thru, cooking made to order breakfasts, learned that some people really don't know the meaning of expired food, the manager was very rude and condescending but the owners were really nice people, most co-workers were in the clique and got away with alot, dealing with – more... co-workers who were completely useless to the team, the most enjoyable part of the job was when I was done for the day – less

Cook (Former Employee), Merritt, BCMay 23, 2014
A&W was an enjoyable place to work at. Manager and staff were all fun and easy-going. Very quick paced and sometimes a little stressful. The most enjoyable part about working there was the team. They were always able to recognize and acknowledge when you were doing a good job. The hardest part was definitely when lunch time started and everyone was – more... stressed out and running around the kitchen trying to get things done. Overall, everyone worked really well together and always pulled through in the end. I didn't personally love working in the kitchen, due to the fact it was always so hot and greasy, but I would always recommend it to anyone who enjoys those kinds of things! – less

Typical Day At Work
Cashier (Former Employee), Hanover, ONApril 28, 2014
Pros: welcoming, and understanding team members
Cons: lack of productive communication between co-workers
A typical day at work would be prepping for the day (i.e chopping lettuce, onions, tomatoes), then I would set up the drive- thru and counter positions. My work day was fast paced, and enjoyable. My co-workers, and management were awesome to work with. The hardest part of the job would be learning how to work a machine I did not fully understand however, – more... after a few times being shown and asking questions for clarification I picked up on the ins and outs of the equipment. The most enjoyable part of the job was watching the customers walk out with a smile even if they came in upset. – less

Great environment, fun co-workers
Cashier (Former Employee), Langley, BCApril 4, 2014
Pros: free drinks, great environment, fun co-workers
Cons: not enough hours available
A typical day at work would consist of arriving,signing in and greeting one another, and working together through out shifts, then saying goodbye when we leave. I learned to work better with others and how to be myself more. Management was super nice and always wanted to make sure we were comfortable with out positions My co-workers were really nice. – more... We always could talk with each other and if anyone was having problems, we would talk about them comfortably. I always left feeling good. The hardest part of the job was probably trying to make sure we didn't mess any of the orders up and making sure they're delivered and prepared in a timely manner. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to converse with all the customers and enjoying the time i had with the company, – less

Excellent culture and climate.
Manager/ Cook (Former Employee), Niagara Falls, ONFebruary 5, 2014
A day at work included prep for the day, supervising employees on shift, and serving customers.
I learned to deal with stress, unhappy customers, and working as a team in a fast-paced environment.
I was part of the management team, so I hired employees, cashed out the cash registers, and completed end-of-day procedures.
My co-workers were very helpful – more... when I first started the job, assisting me in learning a variety of tasks.
The hardest part of my job has to be disciplining co-workers, and sometimes having to fire them.
The most enjoyable part of the job was serving the customers. I love to meet new people and make new friends. – less
