Cashier (Former Employee), Halifax, NS – May 7, 2015
Pros: Discounted meals
Cons: Long hours
It depended on who you were to work with. Some managers would help and others just didn't care as to if anyone did their jobs. They would be rude to us and also sometimes to customers. They would make remarks that would make me uncomfortable.
Cashier (Current Employee), Winnipeg, MB – May 2, 2015
Pros: Amazing co-workers, Decent amount of shifts, Learnt alot, Customer service skills, Very flexible
Cons: 30 minute break, Not so nice customers
A&W was my first "real" job, having to deal with customers and using a cash register it all scared me a little bit at first but i have learned so many valuable things from working there the last 9 months. – more... Its taught me a lot about having patients with others especially when customers aren't always the nicest people. Its taught me how important listening is, one mistake and you've messed up someones order or if someone has an allergy we have to immediatly inform the cooks and make sure the guests food is properly handled. Also having to deal with situations that require problem solving on the spot. I'm really fortunate that my manager and co-workers are such genuinely nice people they defiantly make the days go by faster and are very helpful when I'm uncertain about something. They've made my first experiance in the work force a very good one. Having a positive mindset gets you very far and makes the day easier for not only yourself but your co-workers and the customers. – less

Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Coquitlam, BC – December 19, 2013
Pros: amazing coworkers
Cons: unconventional hours
A typical day of work at A & W consisted of a very productive work day with many necessary tasks. Primarily I took orders, allowing me some great customer service interaction, handled cash, provided customers – more... with their orders, and kept the establishment clean. While there was many tasks to be accomplished, all of the coworkers made it a great and fun place to work. The most enjoyable part of the job was the human interaction, especially with the amount of regulars the store receive. However the hardest part of the job was coping with such unconventional hours which was constantly changing. – less
Supervisor (Former Employee), Prince George, BC – November 2, 2012
Pros: feeling part of a cohesive effective team.
Cons: rumours and gossip.
Arrive with a review from outgoing supervisor, discussion with management, and see to the requirements of the day. Balancing receiving orders with pre-planning for order rushes. Tasking breaks and knowing – more... where every staff member is as required. Being willing to take on the responsibility of any position in the restaurant. Aligning time with Cash handling and accountability. See to a firm understanding of what needs done, what has to be done, and keep communication is constant. Grateful for each shift success and convey happiness to each employee, respectively.
I learned to better manage my time.
Management is excellent, and appreciative of the time they gave me.
Co-workers were like a group of high school students, clique/groups formed and as a supervisor you have to work within tension.
The hardest part was to be impartial and show authority.
The most enjoyable part of my job was becoming accepted and professional through my employment with Kolider Restaurants Limited. – less
