Food Server (Former Employee) – London, ON – 11 July 2017
A typical day at work would be very busy, I learned a lot, I learned to use the cash, be helpful around the workplace, it was an amazing work place, everyone was so friendly and the hardest part was taking out the food from the bowls, it was very hot and dangerous . I loved working there because we all loved each other and we all got along, everyone was accepted and felt welcomed
Very freindly workplace
To much hours, I also had school which made it harder
I am appreciate for this as my very first job in Canada but I think their management team need to work harder
Food Counter Attendant (Former Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – 4 March 2017
serving customers, cleaning floor It is a private food window which means there were many workers are manager's friends or relatives. Managers are picky for our young workers and always believes that order workers work harder, which is not always true. The workers who worked with me one all left a while after I left.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 July 2016
My boss and coworkers were amazing people. They could get a bit strict sometimes but they keep us in line and focus on our customers. The management was great and flexible. I had a great experience and learned quite a lot.

Despite how I enjoyed serving customers for the most part, it's a somewhat high-risk, fast-paced environment. You're expected to multi-task quickly while still remaining both sanitary and friendly to customers. There's no time to nurse a burn if you get one, which does hinder performance. Management was encouraging enough, albeit a little stiff at times. It's a challenging job but making customers happy elevates the mood fairly easily. The most difficult part was appeasing unreasonable persons.
Cashier/Food Prep/General Cleaner (Former Employee) – London, ON – 12 April 2016
A typical day at work consists of serving customers, refilling the fridge, and replacing the food in the steam table. If you were closing, your responsibilities were to sweep the floors, refill materials (such as utencils, straws, etc.), order replacement food through the microphone, wash the steam table, wipe the glass and countertops, and empty the garbage.
What I learned during my employment was how to deal with a variety of customers, as well as developing my work pace. I picked up the routine and work ethic quickly and stuck to it.
The management wasn't what I thought it was going to be. The manager stood around yelling at people. We received 15min. breaks (one for a 4-6h shift, and two for anything over that) when we should have been receiving 30min. breaks. If you worked over 8h, you did not receive time and a half.
My co-workers were friendly and we worked as a team. The workplace was very family-oriented.
The hardest part of the job was if it was your turn to close that day. You had to do it alone and did not get paid for overtime if you worked half an hour or an hour after your written hours. The owner would serve food even after the mall closed which would push your cleaning time past your hours.
The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting and getting to know your co-workers.
Line-Cook (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 7 December 2014
My typical day at work as alright, nothing to hard or nothing to easy. I learned how to make Chinese food, I got along with my co-workers and my manager but only for work-related purposes. The hardest part of the job was trying to fit in with my co-workers because I was the only different guy, They all spoke Chinese which made it hard for me to understand them. The most enjoyable part of the day was serving the customers and giving them what they want.
Manchu wok is a enjoyable place to work, I gain some experiences in managing the store and dealing with the employees and handle a difficult situation. The best part of the job is you meet new people and you gain some friends. I grew in this job, It taught me how to be balance managing your people. The hardest part of the job is to make sure you are being fair to everyone. Without hurting other peoples feelings.
Gain more knowledge managing the store
I would like to have a career that have more advancement
Assistant Chef/Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 16 May 2013
As a high school student working there, I had a lot of fun and met many exceptional people. Management was very nice and because it was a small business, it was a family like work atmosphere. A typical day for me would be serving and interacting with customers or preparing the kitchen for 3-6 hours. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new customers and the work atmosphere.

It is a fast paced working environment with many different kinds of people. Because of the location my ability to speak French helped me on a daily basis. Some days were harder than others because all of my co-workers spoke in mandarin when not serving customers, This made communication with them very difficult, I would say that not being able to make friends and talk easily with my co-workers was the hardest part of the job. I loved my customers and they made working at Manchu Wok very easy and fun.
