As a manager there can be a lot of challenges and all these challenges depends on what kind of store responsibility has been assigned. A store in a mall’s food court can be more challenging than handling a stand alone store. However, building a great rapport, trustworthy team and wonderful employment workplace can lead you in big ways.

for the 5 years i worked there it was just a pay-cheque. My co-workers ranged from actual friends to people who i rather not talk about. The managers was not great, only really cared about his self interests.

I got my first job working here as a cashier. Tasks given were easy enough to do, but our branch was often understaffed so we were overwhelmed during rush hours. My co-workers were nice people and made slogging through the day easier.

- A typical restaurant and you always have to keep a smile on your face. - Learned on how to count till by the end of the day. The importance of making every transaction into account. - The management needs to review their requirements such as service time. I believe that the service time should be revised or they should hire more people in order to achieve the service time that they have set. - Workplace culture is manageable, as a person working there, one should know who to trust. However, all staff or employees are willing to help each other out especially when there is a question or a hurdle. - The hardest part of the job is the fact that you have to do everything in a fast-paced manner. - The most enjoyable part of the job is you get to meet new people and interact with them. Typically, A&W guests are nice and understanding especially when they sometimes have to stay in line for a while.
Points positifs
50% off on A&W food

Generally, there was no way to get ahead of the job. High volume of business because of the drive-through. No one seemed to be concerned about the employees welfare. It was all anyone could do to just try to stay on top of the high volume.
Points négatifs
High volume, disorganized

I went in with zero experience but leaving with a resume that’s helping me look a lot better. Wouldn’t recommend working there if you want something long term. At times I was doing anywhere from 10-40hours of OT/2wks which made my bank account smile but at the end of the day the stress was not worth it. Overall management was good, my district manager and operation specialist were awesome. If you do your job and work hard going above and beyond you’ll have a good experience. Unfortunately our store manager was everything but, causing me to loss hours randomly and giving them to others as giving little to no reasoning to me. Obviously each store will be different but just remember you’re easily replaced and they have no troubles doing so.
Points positifs
Work days go fast, good coworkers, decent pay, regular customers that get to know you
Points négatifs
Stressful atmosphere, no job security, had to fight for days off and vacation time

I learned and mostly did Cashier work and not a lot on Drive thru. I also helped by washing the tables after they were done being used and I also bagged food for the take out. The most hardest part of the job is the rush and having only one till open.

People were douchebag and judgemental They only gave us 1 day of training and expected us to do good in our job Whenever I greet my manager she will just look at me and looked disgusted they gave me really few hours of work and expected me to be really quick. How can I work fast if don't they give me enough time to work and practice
Points positifs
Free drinks

A typical days work in fairly busy and you're always on your toes, I learned how to deal with any type of customer, whether good or day. Everyone I worked with was friendly and made me feel like part of their small little work family.

Fast-paced environment, almost always. coworkers become more like family than any other job, small space means you learn a lot about your coworkers, and their ticks, and especially when not to tick them off. Loving work environment always. Learning how to resolve problems became a huge thing for us as working in our small "family" we had to learn that we we're always going to get along.
Points positifs
food
Points négatifs
stressful understaffed shifts.

I like most of my coworkers and customers. The higher ups could be a little more decisive and act on things right away instead of leaving things till it's so bad others are made to go above them, or quit. Hardest thing is calming cranky customers. the best thing is my regular customers.

Working at a fast food restaurant isn't exactly what I was hoping for at this stage of my life but I am very glad to be here. I'm thankful for the amazing people I work with and the lovely customers I get to meet.

Most of what you need to know is that A&W's stiffest competition is McDonald's. The food is slightly better, and the corporate branch tries to establish a family like work environment. The truth is, the work environment is more like a high school. Gossip rules the place, and the managers in the store don't stay long enough to develop their store the way they would like it to run. The job itself was fine. I could sling burgers all day and be happy with it, but there was a lot of weird inter co-worker dynamics that I think are a result of under-appreciated, under paid staff.
Points positifs
Free lunch
Points négatifs
Unskilled co-workers

Opening the store and ensuring that everything is ready. Taking orders to the customer and making sure that I did my best in making my customer satisfy and give/answer all they needs/wants. Double check the stocks if we have enough item in the store. Do the deposit everyday at the bank and also I did the ordering three times a week. I have to guarantee that the food that we are serving was in standard quality, its really important. I have learned so much working in a fast food environment it is totally different from my previous job because I was directly talking with the customer compare in my previous job that I am more with the suppliers. I've learned from my co-workers also even if they are younger than I am. Dealing with customers complaint is not the hardest part when I was working there but managing with the absenteeism of one of the staff without calling or sending message prior to their schedule of work. It is hard because sometime its time for me to go home but all of a sudden they will call and tell me that they wasn't able to go to work for some reason, and I have to call for somebody to replace the person who cant work that day. I cant leave the store with no enough staff working in a busy day or else I have to extend my hours.
Points positifs
free meal
Points négatifs
few hours sometimes
