Cook (Former Employee), Summerside, PEMay 21, 2014
i cant even say anything good about management but the job was great! friendly staff (for the most part) the hardest part of the job was being mis-treated. and the easiest part was the end of your shift.

Kitchen Staff - Duties (Current Employee), Burlington, ONMay 4, 2014
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: working with hot grease
It was my first job. I had learned basic cleaning and sanitation skills, and learned good responsibility. My supervisors were always fair and i enjoyed working under them. The people i worked with were nice. the hardest part was working with hot grease. However, I enjoyed the flexible hours.

Good place to work as a first job or when in between jobs.
Cashier (Current Employee), Greater Sudbury, ONMarch 23, 2014
Pros: meal discount before work
Cons: long hours, short staff
Working here is not all that bad. The staff is great and we are good at keeping out service times low, but management needs to be cracking down harder with rules for the younger staff. It is definitely going down hill with rules and respect since I had worked there last, two years ago, but they are working on it. Overall it is a good place to work and – more... is a good place to start your first job or go back to in between jobs. I would recommend people to work there. – less

Working at A&W really showed me, how fast things need to be done, and was a great learning experience, on showing me that time management was a great impact on job performance.

Chasier (Former Employee), Burnaby, BCMarch 1, 2014
Pros: leanred how to deal with tough situations
Every day was a new day because thousands of people go to metrotown and this a&w was before the entrance so majority of the people came into the restaurant. I learned alot of things including how to deal in different situations. The hardest part would be when customers get frustrated. The most enjoyable was seeing new people and learning alot of new – more... things. – less

Cashier / Customer Service / Cook (Former Employee), Midland, ONFebruary 28, 2014
Pros: discounted food
Cons: hot and fast paced.
* Take customer orders fill their orders while making sure it was fast and warm. Fill drinks, clean trays, stock front ( Napkins, Cups, Jams, Plastic utensils, salads ) Cleaning the store ( sweeping, moping, wiping everything down, cleaning the bathrooms, emptying garbage's )

When in the back as a cook : stock meat and fries cook on grill and fryer. – more... Prepare burgers with condiments.

* What I learned : Customer service and how to work while under pressure, how to multitask, team work, working in a confined space without running into each other.

* Management was busy most of the time with book work or helping with filling/ taking orders.

* Co-workers : Were happy and more than willing to help you with the task at hand. Joking around throughout the shift.

* Hardest part of the job : working in a fast paced environment while keeping customers happy.

* Most enjoyable part of the job : discount food – less

Working at A&W
Supervisor (Former Employee), Langely BCFebruary 9, 2014
Pros: worked around my changing school schedual
Cons: not enough hours/pay
A typical day at A&W was going in taking over for the morning cashier, I would hen make sure all products were stocked and help guest when they came to the counter to order. through out my shift I would make sure that the cook was following proper protocols and answering any questions she had. since I usually closed I would make sure I stocked all products – more... for the next day and cleaned the front, I would also cash out the store and make sure the kitchen was also clean.

some of the things I learned at A&W was how to place orders for the store, how to do inventory, deal with guest, and how to manage people. the management there was ok, she was very forward and did not always handle situations properly, I loved working with my co-workers that was one of the most enjoyable parts of my job. the hardest part of my job was the fact that if I was dealing with a particularly difficult guest I would not get support from my management in finding a way of making the staff feel safe. – less
