RESTAURANT SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) – London, ON – 5 January 2014
Every day was different.It depended on your cistomers. I learned that every day was an adventure.That no to situation are the same.How to deal with Staff and customers.To b e able to think outside the Box,and over the years to be a better person myself to deal with Life. I learned to work with people that were managers in all levels,taking advise and learning from them making me a better manager of my Restaurant. With thier ideas and information that they gave me made it easier to train and coach my staff to make the Restaurant a place to come and work. I think the hardest part of the job is to be creative all the time,your need a good staff behind you and they also have good ideas and you need to Listen.There is no I in team.The most enjoyable part of the job was to see your customers offen and to see a smile on their face when they leave.
Unhappy customers know matter what you try to do for them.

Co-workers were very friendly and easy to get along with . Great store everyone loved working there. Most enjoyable part of job was being around friends. Hardest part was the last day the store was open . Our company was apart of history . Management was good , no complaints from me. I miss that store. Everyone does.
Staff BBQ'S, potluck lunches in staffroom, free pizza lunches, 50/50 draws at friday morning meetings lol.
Old location for the store, needed repairs constantly, roof leaked when it rained, not enough pay, needed new uniforms, needed more equipment for everyone
Electronics Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 11 May 2017
I learned a lot while working at Zellers but not in part to anything good. Management had little to no control over the store I worked in and left almost any major departmental problems to the staff. The upside to all of this was that it enabled me to take control of the department and manage staff who I worked with when the real management decided not to do so. Very young employee group when I worked there which provided great relationships among all staff members outside of management.
