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

working at A&W
Kitchen Helper (Former Employee), Calgary, ABJune 27, 2014
Pros: free lunch
Cons: long hours and short brakes
I worked at A&W for a short period of time. Learned to take the orders and prepared them in timely manner, lift heavy goods. I would prep all the veggies or sometimes i would help in breakfast. Lunch time was really busy. The thing i disliked there was short time brake(half hour) and after that you have to stand still for 5-6 hrs really hard. But i – more... enjoyed working with my co-workers from different culture. – less
