Cashier (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 19 May 2018
I enjoyed working here as a highschool job, but full time, daytime work is a little bit rough, with volume and understaffing. lots of friendly coworkers, though sometimes stress interfered with friendships.
Chef/Cook (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 18 May 2018
i started working at A&W when i was 16, i started with short 3 hour shifts and advanced quickly to kitchen closer and trainer, my duties involved cleaning the kitchen spotless for the next day while cooking food and taking orders occasionally as well. if needed i was able to look to management for help and i was even scouted for a management position as well, but i soon left for greater things in life. high points for me were the conversations id have with customers as well as the staff id work with, low points would've been talking to the people id have to ask to leave or the HUGE sales wed have where id be working by myself all night, making all food and cleaning EVERYTHING in the kitchen by myself!!!!
Food Service Supervisor (Former Employee) – West Edmonton Mall, AB – 16 May 2018
One of the best managed restaurants in West Edmonton mall. The crew works their best to deliver food blazingly fast. The kitchen is mainted in excellent condition and food is definitely prepared with care.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – 15 May 2018
The environment is always welcoming. I find that the management staff from both the upper levels and at the restaurant I work at personally are very caring and just want to give the best service possible. I have worked there for multiple years now, and have enjoyed every moment of it. The management staff are very flexible with hours as I have been going to school the whole time while working at this workplace.
Flexible hours, cheap meals for staff, friendly and fun work environment
Caissière (Former Employee) – Trois-Rivières, QC – 15 May 2018
Pour une caissière, une journée se résume à seulement faire de la caisse,servir les commandes aux tables, mettre la vaisselle utilisée dans le lave-vaisselle et parfois, faire des chaussons. Mis à part, offrir un bon service, j'ai rien appris de plus.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 14 May 2018
Shift leaders are more worried about keeping friends on staff than building a strong team. Employees are judged on ability to fit in with the clique rather than their ability to do the job. Very disappointing.

Excellent first job, not ideal past that, however.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Collingwood, ON – 12 May 2018
Many personal skills I have developed have come from my time at A&W. An excellent first job, however, it is very one dimensional and can get very monotonous. Excellent company with a great product, management at my location was not very friendly, however, and was more concerned with revenue than the experience and safety of their employees.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Vermilion, AB – 10 May 2018
A&W was an amazing place to work, with great people and plenty of opportunity for advancement. It was a fast-paced job, with very few quiet moments, but it taught me the benefits of good time-management.
productive , best part is knowing the taste of customer

Cashier (Former Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 6 May 2018
Lots of flexibility, easy to get shifts covered and to work extra shifts. Other then that there's poor management and even the supervisors feel that way. And there's terrible training. I worked here for a very long time, had one training shift after that I was on my own and it was hard for me to do my job because I was expected to do things I had not even learned or been trained to do.
