It has been a great experience to manage a team of employees everyday. By training them to managing payroll activities, I have learned a lot. It is sometimes difficult when dealing with rude employees but its a good learning experience

its ok

The workers are great and the management is ok. the only thing really is the late updates on the schedule. Finding out that your working from a call 30 minutes to an hour head of time is kinda annoying.
Pros
free lunch
Cons
more stress then what its worth

Wroked as a part time employee
Customer Taker and Chef (Former Employee) –  Peterborough, ON9 May 2017
Worked as a chef and also a cutomer taker in the busy fast food restaurant.
Management was good and the pay was way too low for the work they assigned to the employee.
Hardest part of the job was handling so many things and yet enjoyable in working with co-workers.
