Cashier/Cook (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 19 September 2017
How to cooperate with other employees and handle a large amount of customers at a fast pace. Also how to handle and count money at a fast pace. I really appreciated the help they gave me as it was my first cashier job.
CASHIER (Current Employee) – Antigonish, NS – 3 September 2017
At my A&W location they focused a lot on customer interaction, so through them I got to meet and befriend many locals as well as work on my ability to strike up an conversation with just about anyone. I also learned how to complete tasks quickly with accuracy. My location felt like a family because the owner made it her mission to ensure we were comfortable so she held staff parties (about 4 per year) where the workers would go (some with their families) and play games, win prizes for doing well at work and just relax. some of the parties were at a biking trail, family skate, her house for a bonfire etc.
FOOD SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) – Dawson Creek, BC – 31 August 2017
> Fun but at the same time tiring because of the tasks you have to perform on a day to day basis. Fun and fulfilling specially if we were able to satisfy the needs of the guests that comes inside our store, when you hear feedbacks from them that our store is a happy place to stay and hang out with.
Night Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) – Claresholm, AB – 31 August 2017
I enjoyed working there, my boss was a great boss to work for. The resturaunt was always clean and friendly staff, I made sure we made service times every night I work. And that all paperwork was done either on time or early.

Its a great place to work and its a good to work with new people. But sometimes there will be problems. The manager is the friendly. the people around there is great but there was some issues with hours.
Cook (Current Employee) – Blackfalds, AB – 25 August 2017
its to stressful of an environment to be in alone. when working by myself it was hard to keep up with all the cleaning and orders i would have to make in between making those orders, and it didn't help that i am making just barely by minimum wage and I've been working there for 3 years is B.S.
Kitchen Staff (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 24 August 2017
Most people i have worked with always has a smile on their face. It can get busy sometimes but time flies when you're busy so i don't mind. The franchise owner is really accommodating with people's schedule. A good portion of the workers there are either in high school or post secondary of some sort so if you are young you will click in instantly. There are also many senior staff that will help you anytime. Everyone is like a second family there. Kinda makes it hard to leave the place.
A&W Cashier (Former Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 22 August 2017
They were not understanding at all and had very little training time before being pushed onto the job, they were overall rude and nobody worked as a team, the kitchen staff would talk poorly about the cashiers and the cashiers would talk badly about the kitchen staff
the work itself was fun, I had good co-workers for the most part. Management could have been better.
Line Cook/Prep Cook (Former Employee) – Chetwynd, BC – 20 August 2017
a typical day at work wasn't too bad, I had pretty fun coworkers for the most part. I learned basic kitchen things such as how to operate a fryer, how to prep buns, and first in first out. there wasn't too much workplace culture involved and it seemed as though people were more focused on getting food to customers as quickly as possible. The hardest part of my job was dealing with one of my co-workers that made me want to take a swim in the fryer every time he opened his mouth, but aside from that the job was pretty decent. management could have been better when it came to payday, nobody told me anything and it had been past payday before somebody mentioned that I hadn't picked up my cheque.
