Fast paced workplace with an overall good job environment.
I learned a lot about what goes on in the kitchen of a restaurant, even though I was just a packer/cashier, I would still work with the cooks and tell them what each order needed and which side dish every tray got. Overall I enjoyed my time at Swiss Chalet.

Fun place to work at
I had a great experience working at Swiss Chalet. I loved my co-workers and the job itself. It was an easy job to have along with going to school. And the pay allowed me to save up for post-secondary.

Great experience and fun place to work
I worked at Swiss throughout my University years. I enjoyed working there mostly. The staff became like a family and the atmosphere was great. Even during busy, stressfull dinner or event service, the mood was fun and team centered. If I lived closer, I would return to my previous location Swiss Chalet for part time work!!

Stressful
Super competitive environment, the other servers and hostesses would go behind your back to management and complain about you being inefficient, when you were doing your job properly. Constantly scolded by management, was made to do the server’s jobs without tips, I was promised to become waitstaff upon hire and it never happened.

Other staff were lazy and would pawn off their work to you at the first chance they got. Wasn’t able to start on time, was kept back 2-4 hours when I wasn’t listed as closing. Management would leave before me and without telling me, but wouldn’t have anyone stay who could let me clock out.


Staff were always hungover, servers couldn’t take more than 4 tables. I would ask for more hours, but never got more than 9. They hired me because they thought I was in high school (under 18 - I was 19) gave me no more than 9 hours a week. The 14 year old got 25+ hours. If you didn’t fit the mold, you weren’t welcome.

Fast paced working environment
The most enjoyable part of the job is the feeling of satisfaction when the customers leave without any complaints. Interaction with colleagues is also a big part of the job.

Beware of the Glendale Swiss Chalet Owners
The Glendale Swiss Chalet is run by two arrogant owners. They have lost some amazing managers and staff because of it. Dont waste your time working for these people. They only care about themselves.

Don't work here
The management was incredibly rude. They yelled at their employees all the time inferno of customers. It was unwarranted and embarrassing, do not eat here. They jipped a lot of employees pay and had no explanation for it when I asked about it numerous times. No breaks ! You were also not allowed to call in sick or maybe they just didn't like me. The one time I Called in with bronchitus, I was told that if I couldn't find someone to cover for me then I had to come in .... thats disgusting. you want me to cough all over peoples food,

No structure. Management favors certain employees. Allowing certain staff members to take boxes of chicken home free of charge.
Food is wrapped in plastic bags and heated up in the microwave when customers placed an ordered. Managers allowed take out staff to eat on the job and all other staff were yelled at if they put a french fry in there mouth. They hired an assist manager who had a drug and drinking issue and was always drinking and doing drugs on the job. I do not recommend anyone to work there.

Good money, awful Management environment, useless Union
The only reason why I worked here (Bermondsey and O'Connor Location) is because it made decent money and is close to my house. Otherwise I would NOT have worked here. Management is AWFUL and ABUSIVE and the Union does nothing to help you!

It was okay
Good to work there but management was not strong enough. But job secure was there forever. Food safety was a big issue for guest and there was a food safety officer but they always hide everything.

I enjoyed this job
The job was good. I found that the management were very unorganized with the schedule. Other then that, I would recommend.
Switching shifts was kind of a hard thing to do. Free lunches.

awful
The owner was rude and she did not know how to treat her employees.Do not recommend working at that place. She always kept yelling. Moreover, the management skills were very poor. She treated her employees as slaves.
