Pays the bills, flexible hours
Manager (Current Employee), Ottawa, ONApril 26, 2016
Pros: Flexible hours
Cons: long days
A typical day at work would depend on what time of the day it was. Most of the employees are floaters, so were either on cash, drive thru or preparing sandwiches on backline. I've learned excellent time management and multitasking skills while working there. There would be times I am the only one on the floor and would have to take the order, do cash, go put the fried goods down, then proceed to make sandwiches while sometimes also taking drive thru. My coworkers are all lovely people. It's a smaller staff so you get to know everyone really well. The hardest part of the job is we always have the minimum amount of people on a a shift. So if it gets busy and not the strongest team members are on, you find yourself doing most of the work. The most enjoyable part would be the atmosphere. The staff is friendly and so are the customers.

Not Recommended.
Cashier (Former Employee), Brantford, ONJanuary 27, 2016
Pros: Easy job, Cashier
Cons: Disrespectful managers, late getting out after closing store.
Arby's was my first job and overall wasn't very good , the managers and boss at Brantford's Arby's are super disrespectful to co-workers, and you usually don't get out till an hour and a half after closing the store which was difficult when you had a ride waiting for you and school in the morning.

lobby/kitchen help (Former Employee), Oshawa, ONJanuary 19, 2016
I learned good customer service skills at Arby's and i learned a lot about fast food industries here, and how they run. I was mostly lobby but i sometimes helped in the kitchen and i enjoyed it alot. My favorite part about my job at Arby's was icing the turnovers.

Unorganized, minimum wage pay even for managers.
Shift Manager (Former Employee), Cambridge, ONNovember 26, 2015
Pros: crew members got 50% off food and managers got free food
Cons: Unorganized and poor employee appreciation.
I worked at Arbys for 4 years, and have been promoted from crew member to team leader to trainer and finally to shift manager, with all those promotions I was still only making $10.75 an hour! I was scheduled to close the store and then open the very next day many many times. Because the store manager and the other 2 shift managers were family and had family functions to attend there were a few days where I was the only manager in store, working from 8am - 11pm or 12am.

Good but no future
Crew Manager (Former Employee), London, ONOctober 20, 2015
Pros: Free Lunch as manager
Cons: sporadic hours
Fun place to work, messy and dirty, little space for a future, good management. A bit of a breeding ground for laziness. Food quality isn't great, standards need to be higher and equipment needs to be updated and maintained.

Crew member (Former Employee), Lindsay, ONMarch 31, 2015
Pros: Friendly managers, discount on food
Cons: weird hours, no benefits
Arby's was a really great place to work. There were a lot of regular customers which always made my day better. The manager's were friendly and made my shift go by faster. Being a cashier I had a lot of interaction with customers and I had a lot to do. I had to make sure that the customers were taken care of and that the restaurant was clean.

typical fast food work, unstable managment.
Cook (Former Employee), Hespeler road, CambridgeFebruary 6, 2015
An average day would be starting my shift stocking the kitchen with different ingredients like sauces, vegatables, etc. Then as the day went on I would be preparing food and cleaning or stocking in between.
This eviroment needs you to be able to be reliable under pressure and be an effective multitasker and while working at Arby's i've learned these skills.
The Management here needs work because of issues in shift management sometimes not receiving a shift two weeks in a row, this definately needs work!
The hardest part of this job is trying to adapt to this kind of fast paced enviroment.

Once you start, you don't leave. A dependable job, however, everything becomes expected of you.
❸ Shift Supervisor (Current Employee), GuelphFebruary 1, 2015
Pros: short shifts, flexible scheduling, good staff environment
Cons: okay management, extra becomes expected, rude customers
Typical day includes:
-constant customer interaction
-making sure orders are taken correctly and filled accurately
-handling cash and debit transactions

-I've learned that people have a total disregard for people in the service industry
-you are lower than the average human being when taking their orders

-the management is good at times
-they make good accommodations for your schedule, however, this is not always the case

-hardest part of the job is the customers and the management. Both are always expecting the absolute most from you,regardless if you are able to do it or not

-the most enjoyable part of the job would be everything else. Sometimes customers are wonderful, the daily and extra jobs are manageable, the staff/co-workers are generally great. The job itself besides a few other factors is great.

Pros: got more supervisory skills
Cons: boss cant run a business
- business is going down
- love my coworkers
- treated poorly
- cut hours
- not paid properly
-
I am a super friendly and caring person who puts my job before anything, only as long as I am appreciated for what I do. I am known for going the extra mile to get things done and get extra stuff done. Lately it has been unrecognized and I am unhappy with where I am.
