Good Manager. Brutal Pay

Fun to work with other staff. Manager was good but stressed because they couldn't pay people enough to keep them. A living wage is the only way to fix this.

Helpful management

I got a massage from them for an interview and they hired me and gave me paid training. Also I am an international student so I asked them for permanent resident help. They help me with no extra cost. I got my PR just because of 2 years of experience. It is a fun and happy place to work. Owners are really helpful and honest people. They will help you with any needs.

Pros

50% off

Cons

Nothing

Job is simple, lots of drama. Competitive hours

Work place has lots of drama. Some created by manager. Not really worth working and dealing with staff. Owner cares for employees and is willing to work with schedules and life struggles.

Pros

Simple, good workout

Cons

Ok management. Angry customers. Poor care for employees by headoffice.

Very stressful work environment, not worth minimum wage

The Job itself was straight forward; easy to learn things such as labeling, food preparation, And cash system, and cleaning routines; however, the job is very stressful. More often than not, there would be issues between coworkers, low hours despite what is told to you in the interview, a bad customer base, and there is an endless amount of work that needs to be done on the store that the owner refuses to acknowledge. As a hard worker I frequently would be placed with a less competent staff member and would end up doing the job of 3 people myself. I also felt as if the owner and general manager lacked trust in the staff, they were always watching the cameras and nitpicking every thing the staff did. Overall a job you should only take if you desperately need a job fast.

Pros

Manager is Friendly and very hard working

Cons

Unpaid lunches, no free meal or extras, low wage.

Productive and easy to work with co-worker and the owners

They treat you like a family. They are willing to give and share some advice to improve their working habits. Most of the time they will give some challenges on how to solve some problems, like asking questions about what will happen if the customer has a complaint, etc.

Great place to learn to work independently, but can be stressful

NYF definitely has it's ups and downs like most retail/restaurant jobs. Keep in mind that this is review should be taken with a grain of salt since I worked there before COVID-19 became the norm. During quiet days you would maybe work with one other person during peak times but for the most part you're working on your own, so you'll have to be the cashier and cook all at once. I learned how to multitask between handling customers and keeping the store presentable but some days would be busier than others which can be stressful, especially during closing shifts. It's a great place for students because they're very flexible with your school schedule. If you end up becoming the manager/assistant manager be prepared to have very little free time. You'll get plenty of call-ins that you'll end up having to cover a lot of the time which is also pretty stressful but if you have a good team, it makes it really worth it. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with, they made it a great experience. The worst part would be how understaffed we were, which made working tough some days.

For the months that I worked at NYF, they treated me with the upmost respect. They are very good at explaining the steps to keeping a organised workspace.

Bad job

Working here was very stressful the entire time I was an employee. The owners don't really care for their employees health. I did learn new things while working here but for the most part I did not like my job.

Produtive and Team building work enviroment.

Working here is fun and exiting. Everyone worked together to help each other out. It taught me that management plays an important role and with teamwork you can achieve greater task in hand. They also gave important in one's view point on resolving problem and changing on how work can be done in safe and fast way, and also complying with industry standards.

Not too bad

Typical day has busy and non-busy hours. Learned most tasks in the store such as cashier and back lines. Hardest part is to push through busy hours. Eating fries with half prices in the store is enjoyable.
