It was a great experience working here
Food Counter Attendant (Former Employee), Red Deer, ABMay 26, 2015
Weekdays are dead and weekends are pretty busy especially Saturdays.
I've learned how to cook faster and deal with rude customers.

Great workplace
DDO, QC (Current Employee), Montreal, QCMay 6, 2015
Start off by going to job location at 10. Prepare food and clean dishes. When customers order from O'Burger I prepare the burger. I then clean the tables and at the end of the day clean workplace. The hardest part of the job is during rush hours because the intensity goes up. Great work environment with many great employees. Learned a lot about the business.

A comfortable and lenient work environment
Cashier (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONApril 17, 2015
Pros: -Free food all the time, everybody likes Thai food
Cons: -9-10 hour shifts and the end is often very slow, the occasional unreasonable customer
-At the beginning of the work day, I would set up the Thai Express counter at the food court, make sure that all the condiments, utensils and trays are ready to be used. I take orders, explain the menu items, and relay any customer concerns and modifications to my co-workers who are cooking. Customers are usually friendly, my co-workers are very accommodating and the work pace fluctuates depending on the time of the day.
-Through my experience at Thai Express, I improved my Cantonese and Mandarin while conversing with my co-workers, developed my patience with other customers and learned to adapt to the demands of the customer industry.
-The business was small therefore little management was needed. The cooks at Thai Express have worked there for a long time and efficiently take care of inventory and customers on their own with little supervision.
-My co-workers were friendly, patient and accommodating.
-The hardest part of the job is when there is a rush during holidays and people become very impatient and easily aggravated
-The most enjoyable part of the job was any part of the day because I loved the co-workers that I worked with and the customers were very friendly when its not busy and occasionally would start conversations.

Productive yet calming workplace
Cashier/Cook (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJune 22, 2014
Pros: great environment and location
Cons: nothing
Typical day at work was that my fellow co workers and i were always working and doing something. We never stood around and lazied about. There was always something to do which made the day go by faster. The location of thai express was very convenient for all the business men and women to grab a bite to eat. The managers of the workplace were very out spoken and always had something positive to say about the co workers and in general. They always gave constructive criticism when needed and expressed it in a down to earth positive manner.

bad supervisor at Southgate store

I has never seen such a bad-temper supervisor. She didn't pay me as what she said and paid less hour than the length I'm working.

Fun workplace with food testing
Project Manager/Marketing/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Montréal, QCApril 30, 2014
Pros: meeting new franchisees
Cons: long hours
A typical day is responding to customer's feedback, franchisee's messages and supervisor's requests, Assisting project coordinator in construction and paperwork in preparation for store openings and Assisting marketing creative with marketing tools for store openings, Coordinate and finalize scheduled installations, and finalize expenses.

I learnt to prioritize a list-to-do everyday and to utilize my time in the most sufficient way. I believe follow-ups are very important to all customer, franchisee, and management as it unifies us as team and as a franchise. A task/job is not complete is there is no follow-up.

I enjoy working with a dedicated team with the same goal to be a success.

Really busy boring day
Line cook (Former Employee), Bayshore mallJanuary 26, 2014
Pros: free lunch
Cons: bad manager which eventually made me pay for my food.
To be honest i hated it. It was in the food court there were alot of people, alot of pressure. Everyday i'd come and barely talk to anyone and just stand as a line cook and repeat the same process over and over again and standing there with the intense heat made it hard. I learnt the value of time, and that i have to fast. the manager wasn't really good. In fact no one liked her. She was described as the mean stingy one who would always find something to pick on, and most of the staff didn't speak proper English so it was hard to communicate or even talk as friends without it being awkward. Hardest part is handling the cash register sometimes when a needy customer comes and tells me he needs this but not that but this etc...
Most enjoyable part was probably cooking when there aren't alot of customers/pressure.
