Never bored and worked with great people

Never bored, was always something to do, helpful co-workers, looking after people by providing them with food. Hardest part sometimes was keeping up with customers with food orders and sometimes rude customers


free lunches, never bored, great co-workers


no cons with people but wages could be higher

Note négatif pour a&w Wilfried hamel

Ils embauche rapidement et vous donne des temps à votre guise. Après les tests et selon les saisons ils vous donne des temps partiels à leurs guise et peuvent vous renvoyer sans explications valables alors que vous les avez prévenus.Tardes à payer les indemnités après que vous quitter votre poste.Manque souvent de personnels et vous charge d'heures à leur guise pour atteindre leurs objectifs.


Rabais 50%, café gratuit, chandail à rendre


Pause à leurs guise, manque de confiance entre les collègues etc

decent fast food job

decent pay and work culture is pretty relaxed, but also proper and well encompassing so that everyone is pulling their weight (altho i understand alot of that depends on the manager) just all in all miles better compared to other fast food places

Fun but hard

The work was okay. The work mates are fun to work with as well. Management is just hard to communicate and deal with. I can definitely say if you work full time there's not gonna be that much work-life balance going on.

Great Work environment, Climate goals are the most important part of management keys to success

I have loved working for A&W on and off for many years! These people are like family to me and they're always around when I ask for help! Very supportive environment and I couldn't have asked for a better company to start my career in!

Somehow both busy and boring

Somehow managed to be boring during busy times, becoming very repetitive. Most interesting times were during dry spells when you could interact with coworkers and properly build connections with coworkers and customers

Simple, productive, good first job

A&W is a good place to embrace diversity, develop skills in food handling/cleaning, and to practice people skills. Most difficult part of the job is starting out, but in a couple months, the work will be second nature. A good part-time job.

Good Team and Management

Worked at the Eaton Centre location, the team there was all friendly and helped me learn how to do things even if I was taught how to do it already. Managers were great and understanding if a personal emergency came up, great part-time work!

Productive and fun workplace

Working at A&W is a great starter job. They provide you with a uniform, food benefits (discounts to meals free depending on location), and opportunity to train in different rolls.
