Kitchen Helper (Current Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 10 May 2017
Busy environment, friendly and fun people to work with. I was able to learn how to organize my time better and how to communicate with not only my coworkers but customers as well. It is inside Conestoga Doon campus, which makes it a fun place to work at. Can be difficult due to many students but the managers and the rest of the co-workers make it easier to deal with
Director (Former Employee) – Toronto – 24 May 2017
After spending 2 years I decided to leave and it was the best decision. If you are looking for an organisation that doesn't develop its people, is super political and where there isn't an open door policy this is your place
Catering Server (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 24 April 2017
Nice people for the most of it. They work with your school schedule so that is nice. They are not the most organized company though and they don't do the greatest job at training you when you are new. You kind of just get thrown in.
Free food and meals at times.
Can be long hours, on your legs and feet a lot. Can be a very physically tiring job.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Olds, AB – 10 March 2017
Its a place where I learned how to manage money and I absolutely fell in love with it. So much that I want to break into the banking industry and learn more. The management team taught me to be strong in problem solving, data entry, and customer service from a financial perspective. The hardest part of the job was to keep my emotions from coming into play when I was in training. I will never forget the words they taught me...money has no feelings. LOL! The most enjoyable part of the job I was doing was counting the money from the different kiosks on the college grounds and doing data entry.
Cashier/General Help (Former Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 3 March 2017
Chartwells Canada is a great company to work for. Unfortunately I injured myself on the job so I no longer work there, but through my injury and recovery process Chartwells worked with me to help me to recover, they made sure I was as comfortable as possible and supported me. I recommend this company :)
Lead Hand/Supervisor (Current Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 25 January 2017
Amazing company to work at, motivated employees and great team effort.I started as general help and was promoted to lead hand in no time which taught me immense people skills and improved my management skills.
Food Service Worker (Former Employee) – Stoney Creek, ON – 12 August 2016
Work was long but it's great. I learned how to do cash, clean up, make drinks and sandwiches. The management was great. I worked by myself so I didn't really talk that much to co-workers. The hardest part of the job was making it there on time after school and trying to catch the bus after work. The most enjoyable part of the job is lunch and the customers, they are nice to talk to.
Shipper / Receiver (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 14 July 2016
A typical day at work for me would be to give the stores like Tim Hortons their goods and then i would move on to the next store until i finish all the stores and then i would put away any orders that have come in. I learned that no matter what goes wrong all you have to do is just forget about being upset and try to do your work and solve the problem. The hardest part of my job is that i am by myself and i have to put away all the skids of food goods and paper goods for every store that comes in. The enjoyable part of my job is when i finally finish and get my break and laugh and joke with my co-workers at my break, it makes me feel better when i go back to work. The management is O.K i really can't say anything else about them.
Cashier/Customer service (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 4 July 2016
Management is lacking, and just an overall horrible experience. I've done 8 hour shifts without any breaks because the manager didn't want to come and help when four employees called in sick the same day, you get zero recognition.
Jr Sous Chef (Current Employee) – Olds, AB – 2 June 2016
Work starts at 10 , start prep for lunch at 11, then after start prep for dinner at 5. At this job I did not expand my knowledge at all. Management is very visible to the workers and to the client. My co-workers in my opinion are lacking the skills needed to make the work place a success. The hardest part of my job is having to deal with the lack of fresh ingredients for our menu. Most enjoyable part is having the conection with the client about the food that we are making that day and the deas that get passed back and forth.
Cashier/customer Assistance (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 16 May 2016
I enjoyed Working at Chartwels because it was flexible between working and at the same time taking classes. During the winter period, it was really nice because I can be studying at the university while also waiting for my schedule while the staffs are also awesome people to work with.
COOK (Current Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 10 March 2016
A typical day at work involves preparing meals for 400+ students, preparing orders for catering events and serving students. I have learned to work fast, effectively while keeping a close attentions to detail and presentation. The hardest part about this job is the long hours and limited amount of staff. The most enjoyable part of this job is seeing the students and watching them get excited over the food prepared.
FOOD SERVICE SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) – Hamilton, On – 24 July 2015
I worked with Chartwells in various positions for four years and I enjoyed the customer service and the people I worked with above all else.I had great relatioships with all my managers as well but the pay and the chance of further advancement was an issue for me.
