Customer Service (Current Employee), Stratford, ONApril 10, 2016
When arriving at work, I would check the position chart to see which station I would be working at. Through out the day we have task we have to complete before 3 pm which included cleaning bathrooms, food preparation, sweep and mop our lobby. If I was working for dinner as well I would have certain tasks to complete before my shift had ended. The team and management were excellent to work with, we worked together as a team, and treated each other like family.

Shift Manager (Current Employee), Brampton, ONApril 9, 2016
Pros: Exposure by customer service management
Cons: Food industry is very challenging
Working at HARVEY's is new and different experience. Earlier i was doing office job but at Harvey's physical and presence of mind is required because we have to focus on best customer service we can give and quality control as well. Working in a team is fun but sometimes very challenging.
The hardest part of job is when your customer not satisfied with your service, to deal with that situation and make your customer happy is sometimes tedious task.
The most enjoyable part of the job working with different people and dealing with different kind of people.

Harveys is a great workplace experience for workers to start in.
Crew Member/Cashier (Current Employee), North York, ONJanuary 11, 2016
Harvey is a great experience for beginner workers, it is not a very hard workplace, depending on the steadiness of the day, it can get busy. Co-workers are great and always willing to help when needed, management is very generous and understanding. Hardest part of the job may be the grill, also depending on the rush.

It's fast food. enough said!
Cashier (Current Employee), Bowmanville, ONNovember 9, 2015
Pros: 50% discount when working and 20% when not
Cons: Management
Okay so a typical day I start at 8 so i come in and clean greasy fryers and filter all the crumbs and burnt fries/rings out, then I set up four garnish stations with all the burger toppings, put in the pop dispensers, fill ice bins, start a pot of coffee and hot water, get the grill station ready with all the grill chicken, burgers, hotdogs, bacon and cheese, put down all the chairs, make sure apple pies are ready and out in the warmers, get 5 buckets of sanitize water and cloths are out around the kitchen area and Tuesdays and Fridays help put away the deliveries, all before 10:30 if everything isn't done, the owners murmur about how slow i am behind my back or if they are angry enough later right behind me(has happened once or twice). Also most days cleaning tasks are added to that morning im already scrambling to get done, which only adds more to the "why are you behind?". the management knows I am a good cleaner and that i have a hard time saying no to cleaning and work so they abuse that and have me clean above a 250 degree chicken rotisserie while its going. As for co-workers its fast food so of course you have your 16 year old high-schoolers causing drama and being jerks to everyone, though I have a few of my old highschool friends there and I try my best to get along with everyone and just avoid the troublemakers. all in all not much enjoyable about this workplace but hey It's a job and I need money.

Garnish burgers for customers, working fast during lunch hours
Cashier/Garnisher (Former Employee), 6620 Finch Avenue W, Etobicoke, ONOctober 27, 2015
A typical day at Harvey's I would usually open and prepare my garnish station. It was my job to ensure the vegetables and condiments were freshly prepared for the customers. Every hour it was my job to check up on the lobby and make sure the tables and washrooms were clean.
