Unproductive and slow workplace with little to no team work
Cook (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 6 November 2017
Swiss Chalet should honestly be anybody's last resort for a job, especially for a cook or a dishwasher. This is the only place I've worked at where nearly nobody works together but just simply move slow, get in your way, ignore you or.. my favorite part.. when it's super busy with a line out the door and some of the cooks will just stand there doing a single task and blowing off the rest of their job for somebody else like me or a co-worker to get yelled at by the manager to pick up their slack. Plus they pish you to do up to 3 other peoples jobs with yours on top of that somehow at the same time aallllll for the heafty pay of $10.45/h(minimum wage at the time) with no meals or tips, because they don't like to give the cooks or dishwashers tips.. Just minimum wage, but at least you'd get meals half off(though they'd try to tell you that you only get kid meals half off) which you usually have to make yourself... then probably get dragged into helping more even if you're off your shift. But despite all that, there's 2 managers there that are respectable, good people.
Make a friend or two and the hour and a half breaks during split shifts
Works you like a slave buidling a pyramid with zero benefits too
