fun place to work
Cashier (Former Employee), Victoria, BCSeptember 13, 2014
Pros: 1 free meal a day
Cons: bad night manager
I worked there not long because while I was working there I did night cashier shift and my night manager would sit on the computer on facebook and not do his job so the rest of us had to do his job for him and if it wasn't for that with no raise I would have stayed.

Cashier (Former Employee), Calgary, ABSeptember 2, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: long, hours, low pay, snub manager
i really have a bad experience in A&W while i was working there, the manager are super strict with just the tiniest of all mistake. i learn nothing from there because of that manager that has bad attitude towards its employees which i don't blame her if she's just doing it for company's sake, but i thinks its too much. the co-workers are great to talk – more... with not just the manager that is being snub thinking mighty and high. the hardest part of the job is where the manager is there and watch every inch of your move and just standing there while its busy and talking to phone while he/she saw its too busy. the most enjoyable part of the job where the manager isnt at the store where we could do/ handle the job better. – less

Fun work place with a hospitalty customer service skills platform
Cook (Current Employee), Regina,SKAugust 9, 2014
Pros: advancement availability
Cons: advancement incentives
Working at A&W can be fun, though quit tiresome and stressful,since its fast food business, how ever, it is not too bad of a job considering the minimum wage offered to an employee. the incentives to management level may not be attractive compared to other jobs but those positions can also give you the opportunity to grow in such a career as management, – more... given an aggressive of a customer service as that of fast-food restaurant like A&W. – less

Fast paced job, keep up or fall behind.
Supervisor (Current Employee), Kitchener, ONJuly 31, 2014
Pros: always something new to learn
It's a very fast paced job that requires you to be able to keep up or fall behind very quickly. I enjoy the fast pace and talking to new people everyday. The most enjoyable part of the job is my coworkers. I really enjoy doing the office type work as well, using my skills to solve the problems that occur.

There usually is a lot more management but – more... the current people were promoted and moved with no one to replace them, leaving it short people. There is a very negative environment from the owners that passes from the top down. They make you feel insecure and easily replaceable. – less
