Part Time Cashier (Former Employee) – Grand Forks, BC – 24 March 2017
Working at A&W was a great first job and gave me some good experience for working in customer service. I learned how to talk to customers, handle cash, and run a cash register. I also gained skills from working in a team and made friends with all the great employees. Some of the hardest parts of the job was dealing with customers who were sometimes angry or frustrated, but it was also great experience learning how to deal with them in the right manner. The most enjoyable parts of working at A&W was making friends with the other employees and always knowing what i was doing.
Good learning exoerience, awesome team members, good hours.

Supervisor/Cook/Cashier (Current Employee) – Surrey, BC – 22 March 2017
A&W is an amazing place to work and on a typical day it is busy with a vast amount of orders flying in and out. Yet it is a place I enjoy working. I learned a lot from my time in A&W like inventory and the cash register. Overall A&W is an amazing place.

A&W's are really busy place but you're intended to do certain jobs only so that makes life easier. They don't have free lunches tho(sucks). But you'll get certain discounts accoring to choice of your store owner.

Cashier (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 20 March 2017
The standing around for a periods of times, was alright. I did not mind that part. It was nicer when it was a bit busy but when it wasn't i would clean or stock up supplies. I could not just stand around. The staff was nice. Management, not so much. Management was poorly managed. Raises were very little. You would get a raise every three months, depending on how you are doing. It would go up 25 cents. Which was not rewarding to some people. Some people would not last as long as i did.
Front End Cashier (Former Employee) – Duncan, BC – 14 March 2017
At A&W on each given day I'd provide excellent customer service. My main duty as a Front end was to take orders and make sure the customers were happy. id also clean whenever the restaurant was not busy. I learned out to operate a cash register and handle efficiently. The management was changing while I worked at this location. The hardest part about this job was getting time off as I was still a student when I worked for the company. But the most enjoyable part of this job was the people who I worked with. they were outstanding at everything they did. they really worked hard for the company.
great work environment, excellent discounts, learn a lot

Cashier (Former Employee) – Cranbrook, BC – 13 March 2017
Everyday I would show up to my afternoon shift and immediately start Stocking the front ( ketchup, napkins, sugar, creamer, stir sticks, etc.) I learned that I enjoy working with food and that A&W raises there chickens without any use of antibiotics. I enjoyed my boss he was very strict but very understanding. There was no real hard part about the job but I mostly enjoyed putting a smile on the customers face as soon as they walked through the door.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 11 March 2017
Working at A&W was on okay experience. I did not like half of the co workers but some were okay. The hardest part of the job was dealing with unhappy customers when you know it was not your fault for a burger being made incorrectly. Or when a customer swears at you and tells you that you are stupid or that their incorrect order is all of your f***ing fault.. it really does hurt but you get used to it. Overall, the experience was okay but I wish it could have been better.
