It helps you save for school, but they expect you to live there
Al La Carte & Deli Employee (Former Employee) – Okotoks, AB – 5 June 2017
Though most of my fellow coworkers were fun to work with and easy to get along with, management was unreasonable and impossible to please.
When first interviewed, they told me school would be first priority, however this did not prove to be the case. It was expected that you come in to sub when ordered (not asked) and extra curricular activities were also expected to be shoved aside (band, soccer, youth group).
Insensitivity to personal struggles and family was a common theme, as well as inability to empathize - which made for a very unstable work environment. At one point we had an employee take their own life, and no counselling or discussion was encouraged - it was expected that we keep working as usual.
great coworker environment
poor management, unreasonable demands
