Shift Supperviser (Former Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 20 June 2017
A and W's work environment was mostly enjoyable. Working with teenagers could at times create interesting challenges. Like all fast food restaurants the customers can be either friendly or troublesome.

I wasn't paid for 4 weeks and the manager of the store didn't even know where my cheque was and when i confronted him about it he told it was on the way to my house already and i can stop worrying about but i called the payroll line and they said no paycheque was sent.

Good experience in A&W. I love working in A&W .It was new experience for me in a food chain first time ever. I learn a lot of things in that job from handling and preparing food to taking customers and dealing with diverse population at rush hour.

when on a day where no one is being bossy at work. that you should do things on your own even if nobody's watching you. there's really nothing hard about that job only cleaning but I'm used to it. when making all the orders.
A good example of a typical day of my job here would be working the morning shift doing openings, as it was relaxing. There is not much to learn as it is a typical fast food chain store. Management was alright. and workplace culture was commendable as I got along with most to all of my coworkers and supervisors. The hardest part of that job? there really isn't anything hard about it, unless you are by yourself with only one cook in the middle of a busy service rush. But that is to be expected when your store is right beside a high school. The most enjoyable part of the job was working the morning shift by myself. Ensuring all prep work was done for the day first thing in the morning and being able to serve the morning customers.
wonderful work environment, my coworkers were amazing.

it was always easy going while getting the job done. communication with the staff was more then often very acceptable, if there were problems work related or not, it got solved in a very mature non time consuming way, work always came first rewarded with some fun at the end of the day.
it is fun and busy place with lots of things to learn for customer service

This was my first job! I do not regret a single moment of it. A typical day was being put in either the kitchen or up front serving the customers. This job helped me learn how to keep my cool while being under stress.
