Avis d'employé sur A&W Restaurants
Satisfactory Job - Issues though.
Overall the job itself wasn't bad. Most of the staff play favorites, and basically either ignore you or are rude towards you. I wouldn't recommend working here at all. The amount of staff that are hired, and leave/fired is scary, they can't keep their staff for long. None of the guidelines were followed, things were not cleaned often, and when they were, it was done in a lazy way. Food was kept longer than recommended holding times. Always felt nervous and scared to go to work because of management and other staff. A few staff were very rude and treated everyone like children, or treated them like they knew nothing at all in front of new staff to gain "alpha" personality. Management: The management was okay at the start, very kind and helpful. After one left it became very unorganized and generally unenjoyable. Always had to remind them that I asked for certain time off, even when I did it way in advance. The hours were absolutely outrageous. Generally received 2-4 hours A WEEK. Meanwhile, others received up to 12-16. Sent home often due to lack of business. ALSO walked in the door once, and told that I'm not needed that night. Using the excuse "they called" but really, they never did. It'd take more money to get to the workplace then it did to make any money. Ridiculous. No room to improve, or grow. If you can suck up to the management right away go ahead and work here, otherwise don't bother...

Some staff were nice, flexible hours (if any).
No hours, sent home often, bad management, rude staff, no one cared, everyone talked behind others backs.
You don’t get a break unless you work 6 hours, and even then you get 1 half hour break. Even if you work 8+ hours. Always a very busy store (on Confederation St. Sarnia), and yet most of the time when we are busy we have a max of 4 people on, because “labor is too high”. A lot of excuses given. When the pandemic hit they let us decide if we wanted to wear a mask or not, and the manager at the time not only had to fight to give us the covid pay, but to get masks, gloves and hand sanitizer in store.
