    I worked at Swiss Chalet part-time

    Pros

    Easy to learn menu, so training really only took a day.

    Cons

    Terrible management - I was verbally abused by the kitchen staff and management repeatedly did nothing to stop it.

    Advice to Management

    Favouritism is not professional.

    I worked at Swiss Chalet part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    50% discount on food

    Cons

    Awful coworkers who talk about you behind your back, no hours and they cut you after two hours, I also didn’t get to clock in so I’m sure I didn’t get paid for my hours. Manager clocked me in?
