Great place to work
A&W restaurants was my first fast food place to work and i can honestly say it was my favourite. The team was amazing and helped ease my stress. The work sometimes was hard but i was able to pull through, I would recommend this place over mcdonalds

Fast paced, family owned, fun place to work
A typical day at work for me was busy mornings with lots of friendly faces. I learned a lot of customer service tips and how to work with money fast. Management was very hands on and worked with you. The hardest part of the job was doing the dishes. The most enjoyable part of working at A&W was building relationships with all of the regulars who came in everyday.

Fast paced learning environment
Breakfast, lunch and dinner rushes are extremely difficult with low numbers of staff. However, it makes it easier to pick up the skills needed in this fast paced environment.
Pros
Friendly staff
Cons
Hours vary very week, tough management

Great place to work
Our team was a great set of individuals, they work hard and try to offer customers the best service possible. I think A&W is heading in the right direction as a company and others should start to take note.

not for everyone
Management had a problem with picking favourites as well as made schedules spiratic and hard to follow. No designated trainer so you'd kinda be tossed around from other staff aswell.

Coopertaive working environment
the work environment provided by the company was very cooperative and friendly. However, some work needs to be done in the area of employees benefits and appreciation for the hard work they do.

Formal work environment
Conservative and traditional work environment. Vertical management style. Promotion is somewhat difficult for some due to pigeon holed roles and job responsibility.

It's a job
It's a minimum wage job that's fast food. It's not the best thing ever but it's not awful. It's what you do when you need a job and nobody else will hire you.

Good for students
Definitely not a career place. The work load is a lot and always changing. You work with a lot of people who do not care about the job or quality of food being served . Like most jobs in this industry you will only get min wage best to hope for is to get a management position
Pros
None
Cons
Low pay. High work load.
