Chopped Leaf provides very good training for new employees.
Counter Attendant (Ancien employé) – Sherwood Park, AB – 6 avril 2019
An average day working at Chopped Leaf consists of first checking the list of duties assigned to each member of the team. Everyone is required to learn how to work each station starting with; the dish pit, prepping food items (washing, cutting, preparing vegetables, bagging and weighing foods, making sure everything is accurately labeled, dated and recorded, maintaining freshness of the line, and ensuring everything is stocked up), the grill (cooking chicken, tofu, salmon ect.), and finally working on the line assembling orders (making wraps, sandwiches, salad bowls, ect.)
From working at Chopped Leaf I learned a few valuable skills from using proper knife techniques, to putting together all kinds of salad recipes. Opening the new store with the team was a great experience, we all got to know each other making the recipes and trying out what was on the menu. The manager and owner demonstrated excellent leadership qualities, showing kindness and understanding as well as having us respect the rules of the company.
I found the most enjoyable part of the job was cutting and prepping the veggies and fruits, as well as providing really nice customer service. The least pleasant part was being confined to such a small space with three or four other team members because it would lead to certain utensils being unavailable at times.
Discount on food.
Small, compact space.
