Loved the job, however difficult to stay
Barista/Server (Former Employee) – Brantford – 20 April 2017
Working at William's was a really great experience; it was hard work during peak hours, but fellow co-workers were always supportive and motivating of each other. Regular customers knew us all by name, greeted us, and took the time to ask us how OUR day was going. My co-workers and I frequently got together outside of work hours, and have still maintained a friendship a year after most of us left. Overall, the atmosphere was one that you really look for when working in a cafe-style environment. With this, however, management was lacking. The managers themselves were fantastic, but the new owners cut costs wherever possible, which usually meant in full-time employees' hours (reason I left: started with 45+ hours a week, left when only given 10/week). The owners were not involved with the day-to-day workings of the cafe and managed in a way that wasn't necessarily the easiest to cope with. Saying this, I did enjoy my time there, it was just difficult to find reasons to stay after several months.
Awesome work environment
