Great job while interacting with customers
Sandwich Maker, Cashier (Former Employee), Orillia, ONFebruary 19, 2014
Owner was illegally paying his employees and at 3 dollars less than minimal wage. He fired me when I asked for minimum wage. He also let women under 18 work alone until 1:30AM without any supervision in a questionable neighbourhood.

I survived.
Cashier & Sandwich Server (Former Employee), Guelph, ONJanuary 30, 2014
Pros: it was only three hours, brought home a sandwich every day
Cons: threatened with violence, was physically abused, refused to increase hours, displays of violence at work, managers put me down in front of customers
A typical day at work:
- Put on uniform, clean the men and women's wash rooms
- Check stock, clean bottle caps, prepare fresh vegetables at back of the storage room
- Greet customers, clean up trays after customers leave
- Take out garbage
- Run the till while on lunch rush
- Re-fill stock and clean sinks/table tops

What I learned: Managers don't tell – more... you what they want. They show you what they want. And sometimes, they take their personal issues out on you in an aggressive way.

Management: casual, minimal hassle, hours were consistent until I was layed off.

Co-workers: I only worked with the two bosses, there were 2 other women working evening shifts but I did not see them.

Hardest part of the job: Trying to make the bosses happy, and continuing to stay true to positive customer service in a toxic atmosphere

Most enjoyable part of the job: satisfying customers, making myself a sandwich; I could hardly get money to eat so this was a necessity. – less

It is better now than it was then
Sandwich artist (Former Employee), Saskatoon, SKAugust 12, 2013
I started when I was in grade 9 so my hours were 5-8 sometimes 9. They were short but good for a student with loads of homework! I made subs the way the customer wanted them, then collected the cash. That was my job. Very simple. Or so I thought. I was left alone in the store for hours on end after my shift was over one weekend during the day and we – more... were very busy. That was against labor board standards because I was only 13. I was doing things I had never done before. Preparing and serving all at once. It was so overwhelming! Then some theft was going on in the store and the manager was held to blame by the owner so the owner fired her and hired a guy who laid off all part-time and tried running the store on only full-time employees. In the end he was fired and the old manager was re-hired and the employees were offered their old positions back. My co-workers were kind of weird but in a good way. I worked with these gay guys who were just awesome! One of them was a hair dresser and always gave me hair advice. Cool right? The hardest part of the job was not knowing everything because I didn't work all that often. The most enjoyable part was the praise I always got from the manager. She was always telling me how awesome I was and how she needed me to work for her. – less

Productive, and a fun workplace with friendly staff.
Sandwich Artist (Former Employee), Stayner, ONJuly 26, 2013
A typical day at work would be to serve the customers that come into the door, prepare the toppings that go under the counter, clean any dishes that may have been used during prep. When needed, we would bake some new fresh bread, and organize the counter and fridges. The management was tough but kind, and always had work to do. They did little to train – more... me in what to expect in the workplace. My co-workers were very friendly and a joy to work with. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the customers when the restaurant became busy. – less

Cashier/Sand-which maker (Former Employee), Cambridge, ONJune 26, 2013
Pros: free lunches, close to home, relaxed environment
Cons: cutting product (onions), working weekends, and working alone when busy
A typical day at work consisted of, most times me working by myself. From prepping product to making the sandwiches to ringing in the customers and taking payments to doing all the cleaning. It was not a very busy location so I always managed to handle it. I learned how to multi-task and work quickly and efficiently. I learned how to work under pressure – more... in times when it was busy and when I was working alone. My boss was awesome that I worked for. He ended up becoming a really good friend to me and made the work environment a fun place to work. The hardest part of the job was cutting product ( those eye-burning onions) and also working alone at times when you had a line up and have to do everything on your own. The most enjoyable part of the job was that it was close to home, good hours, and an excellent boss to work for. – less
