Dishwasher (Former Employee), Surrey, BC – September 29, 2014
Pros: awesome workers, free pop
Cons: terrible management, very low pay, low hours
I've dealt with between 8 and 13 bosses in my time so far, and this one was by far the worst. He didn't know how to run a business let alone his employees, so I got heat a lot of the time for things that weren't worth mentioning.
As an example, I was told to soak the sauce cups in a small bin of soapy water. He told me to do this when I started so – more... I assumed that's how he wanted it done so I did it up until April. He came in and yelled at me for soaking those sauce cups and told me to rinse them out and send them through immediately. (they're low priority because there's so many so that's a pain) Soaking them and throwing them through is faster and easier than doing them right then and there. As such, he decided to fire me by not calling me for 3 months. Right before I moved he asked me into a shift, and I just couldn't say yes to that.
Dishwasher/ cook (Former Employee), Dawson Creek, BC – February 6, 2013
Pros: one free meal paid each day worked
Cons: managers lacked proper communication skills
While working at the pantry my role was just to ensure the dish area was clean. After six or eight months of working I was put on as a cook and my job was to keep area clean as possible while ensuring my orders got made correctly and quickly.
Server (Former Employee), Chilliwack, BC – September 12, 2012
Pros: great co workers and the tips
A work day at the Pantry was never boring, They trained there staff well and taught you how to do your job properly. I enjoyed working for the Pantry because of serving different types of people and knowing that it was up to myself as their server to give the customer the best experience and great service would get them and others by word of mouth to – more... come back again and again. There was not a hard part working as a server or while setting up for a banquet or the clean up it was all worth it to see customers have a good time and enjoy a meal, Not many places have good service any more. – less

Store Manager (Former Employee), Greensboro, NC – July 3, 2014
Pros: job freedom to have fun doing our jobs
Cons: no breaks for a real lunch, had to eat on the job between customers. could not leave the job for eight hours or more.
Each day at work was about the same. I was not over joyed at the location of the store, but we seem to get along good with the companies around us and maintained a very good relationshop with the customers. I feel like our business would have been better if the company would have kept the store more modern and attractive. The parking lot needed repaving – more... and the store itself was very run down. Many people I talked with said they would not come to the store because they felt it was unsafe. My co workers were the best. It was three of us and we all covered each other. We learned to be friends as well as co workers. The hardest part of the job was catching someone stealing and having to banned them from the store or call police and charging them with theif. The best part of the job was the customers. We all become to know many of our regular customers and could enjoy a visit from them as well as serving them. – less
Sales Associate/Assistant Manager in training (Former Employee), Sanford, NC – June 29, 2014
The team in the store was great. The store manager worked with us and with our schedules. Corporate is what screwed us. The area we worked in wasn't the safest, and yet corporate still demanded that we work alone to close the store, all while completing the tasks set forth. It could be done, but was more difficult than it needed to be. All to save a – more... little more money. – less
It is a great experiance but the pay and benifits are awful.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FL – June 24, 2014
Pros: learned great people skills
Cons: not what i want to do with my life.
The experience of have to tend to different types of people and trying to sell them products. has been interesting. Management is fine he tries to give me hours to work but corporate is very strict when it comes to that. The pay sucks for all they expect out of me. Don't get me wrong its an easy job, but when they have you working by yourself they want – more... to handle customers and pick up sales and take of the store and premises its self. It gets kind of hectic, but I still get the job done. – less

Subway (Current Employee), Ocala, FL – June 3, 2014
Pros: free drinks.
Cons: no breaks and rare help during shifts.
Working at Subway isn't that bad. It can be harder then most people expect because it isn't all about just making sanwhiches. At work you have dishes to do constantly, food to prep, break to bake, charts to be filled in, and much more. The co-workers are nice but don't always do wht they need to and it makes things harder. I used to like working there – more... but after being there over 2 years I don't really like it anymore. – less
