Great flexibility for a student.
Waitress (Current Employee), Airdrie, ABMay 20, 2015
Pros: Flexible hours, good tips, happy staff
Cons: Difficult to have shifts covered
This job is great for students in university. The weekends are very busy because there are few family restaurants in Airdrie. There isn't time to stand around, you're always doing something and there's always a task that needs to be done. In the time that I've been here I've learned how to effectively manage my time, make great use of my memory for menu items and how to work and communicate with a large team of people. I have also learned some safe food handling practices. My co-workers and I are all hard working, we all must do what we can to keep the floor running smoothly. We don't often replace our waitresses, we all know each other really well, it's nice to have staff that doesn't turn over. The hardest part of the job is to keep calm if the kitchen is having troubles organizing, as much as we have a great team, some days are better than others. I enjoy the fact that I get to work with people that I like and the customer base is fun as well. We offer good deals for food and we service a wide range of people. I enjoy the fact that we are a family restaurants and promote children in our workplace. I am a fan of children.

Hostess (Former Employee), Milton, ONMay 15, 2015
Pros: Discounts, enjoyable employers
Cons: Short hours
Since Swiss Chalet was my first job, I had high expectations. The work hours were minimal (2-3 hours) and it was only on the weekends. However my employers and co workers were incredible to work with and I had an overall enjoyable experience working with Swiss Chalet

Dishwasher (Former Employee), Peterborough, ONApril 25, 2015
Pros: Free leftovers
Cons: sometimes a late night
It was easy to learn. Your always moving, and the co workers are friendly, Management is okay they usually help you close so that you can both get out earlier. The pay is good for what you do. And they cover a good amount for your working shoes.

Very fast paced, and busy is your typical day when it came to Swiss Chalet and McDonalds. Hardest part of the job is when it got super busy but that was also the most enjoyable part.

Costumer Service Representative (Former Employee), Toronto, ONApril 8, 2015
as a individual I seek the take lead in as many ways possible. Working here, it was hard for me to do so since I was constantly being told that the way I was taught was wrong by another then taught a different way just to find out it was still "wrong". Than again most of the team members I worked with usually sided with the way I did things.

Takeout (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONApril 6, 2015
Pros: good co-workers
A typical day at work involved working in the drive thru, and preparing meals. It was sometimes stressful working in a drive thru while preparing meals that are not fast food, and dealing with complaining customers was definitely the most difficult. However, I had many good co-workers and the management was fairly nice.

Take Out Associate (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABApril 5, 2015
Pros: Coworkers
Cons: Management
I learned how to multitask and interact with customers in a fast paced environment. The management was okay but they were not the most understanding people to work for. My coworkers were great. They were all very nice and helpful and genuinely cared about me. The hardest part of the job was the requirement of occasionally working alone when it was busy because there were not enough employees. The most enjoyable part was the overall friendships and relationships that were present.

Cashier (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONApril 3, 2015
This job was not paid, it was just an internship placement. But I did learn many things from being at this restaurant. The managers were strict and provided rules as they should, the co-workers were fun to be around. The most enjoyable part of being there was being welcomed by the staff and seeing so many smiles on all their faces.

A typical day would include serving many customers with great speed and efficiency. Order accuracy is important when working for this company as well. Management is great, ownership could be better.
