Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 23 June 2017
not the best job, but easy to do, standing on my feet for the most part, washing dishes at a moderate pace, clean up untidy areas. Constantly loading up dishes in the dishwasher to be washed , then organized plates, cutlery , glasses , cups and pots into their required and appropriate areas.

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, Ontario – 31 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.

Server (Current Employee) – Alliston, ON – 30 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.
Hostess (Former Employee) – 82 Dundas St E, Paris, ON N3L 3H5 – 26 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.

Delivery Driver (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 15 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.
