Fun and easy-going job, but not recommended for long-term
Customer Service/Cashier (Former Employee) – PEI – 26 February 2017
It's a fun and fairly easy job, you get a lot of regular customers who are great, however there's no room for advancement and they don't believe in raises, unless you're part of the 'in' crowd, and its hard to get enough hours to make ends meet.
Front-end store service/food clerk (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 17 May 2016
Working as a Storefront Cashier at Robin's Donuts was a memorable experience for me. It was a very good experience, and it was my first experience in a customer service role. The coworkers were great, they were very accommodating and experienced. It was my first life reality experience.
Store Front Customer Service (Former Employee) – Thunder Bay, ON – 13 July 2016
I enjoyed working at Robin's. The pace was variable, at times the pace was fast with 10-30 customers to be served. I enjoyed interacting with customers when the pace was slow .
during a typical day at Robin's:
-I helped serve numerous customers, -I prepared breakfast sandwiches, sandwich toppings, refilled sandwich topping containers, -wiped down and sanitized surfaces and tools. - I (cleaned) and refilled the beverage machines -I handled customer service at store front; handling cash, credit cards, and coffee cards at point of sale.I also interacted with customers in a professional but friendly manner.
I learned many things at Robin's including -the proper way to stack breakfast sandwiches -what all the donuts were called without looking at the labels - other numerous tasks
The manager at Robin's was efficient, polite, and hardworking,respectful and easy to talk to.
My co-workers were of various ages and training. I worked well with my co-workers.
The hardest part of the job was keeping the sandwich knives clean and the tomatoes fresh.
The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that I was part of Robin's helping make customers happy.
Over all I enjoyed working at Robin's and I was sad to leave.
irate or sick customers, trying to wash the floor during rush hour...
Every day comes with new thinking, new opportunities and new lessons to learn
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 27 April 2016
At Robins Donuts, this was my first job in food industry. When I started, I found it little difficult as compare to my background. Because it was just opposite to my studies my experience. But i gave myself a chance to learn and experience new things and after few days,I started enjoying this environment. So for me, every day is a new day and comes with new opportunities, difficulties and lessons to learn. Keep yourself ready to experience new things in life to make your life joyful.
A typical day at work would be serving customers coffee and donuts, attending the drive thru, going in the back to dip donuts, assort donuts, muffins and biscuits into bins to be delivered and complete orders. I learned how to manage my time effectively to get all work done in time before close. Management was good for the most part. I only saw the owner once a day when I worked. My co-workers were great. The hardest part of the job was trying to remember everything that had to be done. The most enjoyable part of the job was when I got the hang of the work and remembered everything and getting to know the regulars.
Solid employment with a great atmosphere and people
Assistant Manager/Decorator/Cashier (Former Employee) – Thunder Bay, Ontario – 1 September 2013
A typical day would consist of administrative work first thing in the morning followed by assisting the cashier staff as needed. During this time I learned how to better work with the public. Although not without conflicts, the staff and management make the workplace one of the best aspects of the job. The best and worst parts of this job are the people who work there.
Steady guaranteed hours, relaxed work environment
Limited management activity, little chance of advancement
Front End Clerk (Former Employee) – nova scotia – 2 July 2015
Daily activity was upbeat and fun; got to know the regulars and looked forward to work everyday. Management was great and the atmosphere was very enjoyable. I learned a lot and was nice working in a small town.
