bad management, high staff turnover
Take Out, Drive-through (Former Employee) – Cobourg, ON – 7 November 2018
i only worked at this job for a month, left when the manager told me i had to choose between that job and my other job.
was constantly yelled at by the manager, often where customers could see or hear, always where other staff could. i admittedly made a lot of mistakes- this was because i was still new, everyone i was working with was new, i was training new employees after only 2 shifts, and we were often overwhelmed (i don't mind a fast-paced job but i was inadequately trained and definitely under-qualified to have already been training new employees).
why was there so many new hires? so many people were leaving! because the management was so bad.
i didn't get paid until weeks late.
often dealt with extremely irate customers because the crispy chicken promotion that was happening at the time took forever to make (honestly, swiss chalet shouldn't even have a drive through- it's not fast food, your order might take 4 minutes or 40 minutes).
for the most part, the rest of the staff besides management was very nice and helpful, although almost everyone hated working there.
the boss also constantly criticized my boss at my other job even though i frequently told her that i wasn't directly employed by the people she thought i was. either way- pretty unprofessional.
would not recommend unless there is new management since summer 2017
