Typical days work at Swiss Chalet, 1976
Server (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONJune 24, 2014
Pros: meeting and greeting customers
Cons: over worked with little salary
Typical day at work would consist of variety of tasks starting from setting up the work station by stalking up sections, making sure area is clean and tidy, and refilling any condiments( butters, sour cream etc). What I have learned as being apart of the team is cleanliness is key. Customers are impacted by the cleanliness of a store. Communication – more... has to be effective in order for a store and employees to run well. Management will always be interchangeable, management needs to follow through will rules and guidelines at all times, not to say but do as well and to treat others fairly. Hardest part is keeping up with the constant changes and remembering them at all times. Enjoyable part of the job working with fellow co-workers and meeting new customers daily. – less

Server / Cashier / Garnisher (Former Employee), Toronto ONJune 17, 2014
I enjoyed working at my previous job for as long as i worked there. management was amazingly helpful and friendly. I mostly had good work experience with my co workers. i believe the hardest part of the job was making a unhappy customer make happy and i'm proud to say that i did my job pretty well, i know that because my manager say that and as well – more... as our guests say that often to my manager personally, or through our website. I think the most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with people, i am a people person i love interacting with people. thats why where a lot of people don't like customer service jobs i on the other hand love customer service. – less

Fast paced, but warm and you are at the mercy of the customer
Kitchen Helper (Former Employee), Lindsay, ONMay 9, 2014
Pros: free lunches, and great bosses
Cons: no ability to move up in the world
Besides being a minimum wage job with a dead end, this was a great job. Got me through college and I met some awesome people, both my managers and my co-workers. I have many friends still from that job, close friendships even. A typical day is a fast paced day of cooking, cleaning, and rushing around without the ability to tell what time it is. The – more... hardest part of the job was getting used to the cramped space, and insuring you worked safely. The most enjoyable part of the job was the 'family' mentality of the kitchen staff. We all worked our buts off and always made sure we had each others backs. None of us ever slacked off, and we always did everything we could to make the closing cook's night real easy. – less

Busy place with routine work
Server (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMay 6, 2014
Pros: flexible shifts
Being near a mall and school, the restaurant was busy at various parts of the day. Families would be the majority of customers; not many people came just alone so the orders and food processing had to be as quick as possible. Management was nice but could get very stern on very busy occasions. The hardest part of the job was making sure that the customers – more... were highly satisfied with the time it took to get the food and beverages to their tables, and making sure all the orders were correct. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the co-workers, who helped out a lot. – less

Efficient and extremely adaptable to newly hired members
Student at Western University Ontario (Former Employee), Orangeville, ONApril 28, 2014
Pros: free dinners
Cons: hours cut short due to work position
Swiss Chalet provided for me a simple, clean and tightly run work environment, which in turn benefitted every work member and allowed for smooth and enjoyable shifts.

The people were friendly, inviting and kind towards me, especially since I was one of the fairly new staff member hired onto a staff who worked for years with one another.

Swiss Chalet – more... was tasteful, functional and exciting to work at as it was always fast paced, without a moment to lose. It fit with my personality as well as the others who all kept their priorities their jobs, and securing the restaurant. The management was attentive to every member of the team, from the most experienced the newly hired and their influence worked into my work performance as habitual and easily adapted.

Overall this place was unique and taken care of, and as were each and every individual. – less

Fun work place
Take-Out (Current Employee), London, ONApril 12, 2014
Pros: sometimes free lunches, very flexible with hours
Cons: disorganized management
Very fun place to work, with amazing people. However, can be overwhelming when understaffed and the managers are too busy to help. But otherwise, very good flow and amazing at working around other responsibilities.
