Enjoed working with customers and meeting new people from different cultures
ASSISTANT MANAGER (Current Employee), Gillette, WY – June 26, 2014
Pros: free meals, vacation time, customers, and people i worked with
Cons: no benefits, no oppurtunity for growth
When I would arrive at work I would start by getting ready to help the customers by conducting a food safety check by making sure the food was the correct temperature and the quality of the food was good. I also stocked paper product and other items I needed to make sure my team and I could serve the guest in a fast, friendly manner.
While I was there – more... I learned how to operate a digital reader board, weekly inventory to calculate the food and paper costs, I also learned a lot of other managerial duties that were required of me. The best experience that I gained at my job was how to interact with people from different cultures and it was also the most enjoyable part of my job.
For me the hardest part of my job is when a customer was not satisfied with their experience and there was nothing I could do to remedy the situation. – less
Cook/Cashier (Former Employee), Grand Junction, CO – May 23, 2014
Cons: unhealthy and horrible management
Get to work and clean up everyone's mess they left for me. I didn't learn anything here, the hardest part of the job was the lack of team work. The manager was never there and never helped out. There was nothing enjoyable about the job.

on a typical day working at A&W was fun...I met new people everyday from all over the world...the manager was very nice , I got along with all of my co-worker's we never had a problem with each other, the hardest part of the job was the timing I had to move at a fast pace because the costumer's had to get back on the grey hound,...I enjoyed meeting – more... new people – less
Waitress (Former Employee), Standish, MI – January 21, 2014
Pros: good food, brings in different people
Cons: drama, poor manigement, hard to do your job.
I worked 40 plus hour a week, I managed my own money and tables. I learned to be a host, server and waitress all at the same time, we would greet the customers and then wait on them with menus and serve them there food. Its a very friendly environment, always got along with workers. The hardest part would have to be when we get busy and the girls would – more... get over whelmed and off track, but customers were understanding. I love making my customers happy and interacting and socializing with them. – less
water transfer crew member (Former Employee), Fort Lupton, CO – December 30, 2013
Pros: well paid
Cons: not alot of time with family as sleep is valuable
night shift water transfer requires a great deal of physical and mental endurance 80-110 hours a week leave the house at 5pm get there at 6pm by the time shift change is over and back the shop your in your car around 8-830am. however its not unusual to pull 16-20 hour shifts and be back that night for another shift i have personally done this many many – more... times. the most enjoyable part is the people the fellow employees i made some great friends working there – less
Head cook (Former Employee), ortonville – November 14, 2013
Pros: 4-5 hour shifts and free food
Cons: owner, pay, hours
very drama filled and unprofessional. I enjoyed working there for that reason while I was still in high school, but since I am out of high school now I needed a more stable job with more room for advancement and a possible future
Cashier (Former Employee), Worland, WY – October 4, 2013
Pros: 50% off a meal
Cons: you never clock out for lunch because you never get a full break most of the time.
I clock in at work and start with cleaning the counters, the floor and the dishes if they was not done from the last shift. I would then stock the cups, syrups, straws, and anything else we needed stocked. Run the register and take peoples order who came in. If it was my night to car hop I would put my uniform on and get my change from my manager and – more... get to delivering food. I learned responsibilities like knowing what makes customers happy. I also learned how to run the cash register, and learned how to count change back from what they give me. I couldn't ask for better co-workers I loved working there and I loved the people who worked there. The hardest part of the job I would have to say during the summer because it was the busiest all year we would stay late and be running around getting orders and making customers happy. My favorite part of the job was making new friends and having our Christmas parties and any other get together we had. – less
