productive and a fun workplace with a table tennis
I learned a lot, include how to work with all different types of people. The job also teaches me to communicate with all my co-workers. The job also let me look the world in a different way than I used to do before I got a job.

Working in A&W is a privilage.
Busy,productive and happy with my co workers, Management appreciate my work, my sacrifices and my hard work.

Cook | Leamington, ON | Nov. 5, 2012
stressful
I would usually only work for 3 hours a day and maybe 3 days a week if i was lucky. i learned how to use a cash register. The management was okay they tryed to save more money other than caring about customer service. the co-workers were nice. worst part of the job was people yelling at you because the cooks messed up there order. the best part of the job was 40% off food.
Pros40% off
Consno hours

Associate Manager | Barrie, ON | Sep. 23, 2018
Fun place to Work
Its a fun place to work when the atmosphere is decent. Not all locations are the same. Sometimes the management can be a bit unwilling to to listen to those below them or just think that what they say goes.

Process Manager | Brantford, ON | May 26, 2017
A well organized and efficient team
Overall, with being at A&W there have been some ups and downs. There is a bit of bad communication between employees and management. This mix up can be stressful but also can be fixed easily. The staff come together as a family and are able to fix every problem a customer has. Each individual staff member benefits the workplace.
ProsGreat environment
ConsStaff calling in

Customer Service Representative | Victoria, BC | Oct. 26, 2016
it's ok
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.

Questions and answers about A&W Restaurants

Why did you leave your job at A&W Restaurants?
Asked Mar. 17, 2017
I left because no one was respecting me, I've been shouted at for so many times for not being fast enough. There's a woman who shouldn't work there, she's evil. I told the manager about her behavior and that she was going to have a talk but seems she didn't. Now the manager is in her holiday break so there's no one who was there to help. The work environment is terrible, the sink has been broken for almost two weeks, I was been blamed after I stayed half an hour to make burgers, because I haven't washed the lettuces when the entire morning I worked my butt off with rush after rush and I didn't even know we ran out of it, I was told it was my responsibility when in fact that woman who screamed at me should have looked in the fridge herself or even ask a question if it was done or something. When I was hired I have been told that in this company everyone respect each other and there's a zero tolerance for intimidation but this isn't what I am seeing here and I was lied to.
