Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) –  Ajax, ON20 June 2017
The workplace is great, employees are all fun to work with, flexible work schedule (for the most part...), some rules given to employees could use work, the hardest part of the job is dealing with customers who are aggravated over certain things, the most enjoyable part of it is giving customers satisfaction as well as working with everyone.

Takeout/Drive Thru Cashier (Former Employee) –  370 Bovaird Dr E, Brampton, Ontario31 May 2017
Going into work on many occasions was very mentally draining. The managers often treated their employees very horribly. However, I have gained a lot of experience with customer interaction, multitasking, and teamwork while working at Swiss Chalet. The hardest part of the job was being expected to over achieve what was expected of me while receiving little training. However, the most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the customers while I was working takeout as I am a people person.
Pros
Interacting with customers
Cons
Bad management

Server (Current Employee) –  Alliston, ON30 May 2017
a typical day at work is serving all of the customers that are seated in your section. Taking drink and food orders and providing quick service. Recently hired new manager that is so difficult to work with. Most enjoyable part of the job would be the girls you work with.
Pros
tips
Cons
low salary

Hostess (Former Employee) –  82 Dundas St E, Paris, ON N3L 3H526 May 2017
Swiss Chalet offered 3 hour shifts which involved greeting and seating guests and a variety of cleaning responsibilities. I was in charge of the seating of guest and where to go. The hardest part of the job was when dinner rush came along and a line would form at the door. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people everyday and always having something to do.
Pros
20% off
Cons
not enough hours

A typical work would be slow at the start and then would pick up also the dinner rush started. I learned now to multitask once the dinner rush started.

Fun job, pay isn't anything to write home about
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ON15 May 2017
The job is a lot of fun if you enjoy driving around
The pay is a major downside, the hourly wage is very low, but if it's a busy day and people are feeling charitable you can make really good money. But if it's slow or people don't tip, then you barely make anything after factoring in any gas and maintenance.

If you're trying to do this job as a full time gig, be prepared to work a lot of hours to just barely get by

Your job isn't terribly secure, but if you're good at the job (and reliable) they won't get rid of you.
Pros
Meal discount
Cons
Long hours to be a viable job
