FRONT STORE WORKER/CASHIER in Regina, SK
Pretty good overall!
Wonderful coworkers and managers are really nice. The only thing is the customers which you’ll have to deal with because it’s what you signed up for when you apply to a fast food chain restaurant.

I had a very average experience working at A&W. Salary is good, a little higher than min wage I believe. Hours were really bad tho and poor communication.
Cashier/Front in Calgary, AB
Great people but stressful job
Personally, I have really bad anxiety and the fast food environment worsened it but it also toughened me up. I really do not recommend working in fast food unless it's your only option and you absolutely need to survive. Typical day consists of taking orders, serving customers, cleaning tables (which is normal) and bathrooms constantly (which is kind of annoying) when they were open, cleaning the restaurant, packing deliveries, stocking the front, etc. Management was kind of bad. I started working in COVID and I got a lot of shifts but recently I had gotten no shifts and had to manage the front alone which can be stressful if you have the need to have someone there with you or you get overwhelmed easily. All my shifts were 8 hours, so i got really tired of it. I worked in downtown so I had to deal with a lot of rude customers and had to call the police a lot. Fast food workers get treated really badly so if you can't handle people threatening you, arguing with you, being rude, throwing drinks at you, etc then i really don't recommend. The people I worked with were really nice and fun which helped shifts a little bit. I learned a lot of skills though. Hardest part of the job was in my opinion getting too many deliveries and in store people at a time OR having to deal with really bothersome customers while having a rush of people ordering OR just being treated horribly honestly. Most enjoyable I find was any moment that is easy and peaceful for example when there are no customers or deliveries or when you have your favourite co-worker working with you. For the most part it was a good learning experience but I'm definitely never working in the fast food environment ever again unless it is my last resort.
