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

    Pros

    None. Flexible hours maybe

    Cons

    Co worker and management lack softskills. Never felt happy. The restaurant is dirty. I don't know how they passed health inspectors.

    Advice to Management

    None. Maybe teach senior workers to respect co workers. The owner is not doing anything to improve the management. They don't care about the growth of the workers and the business.

    I have been working at Swiss Chalet part-time

    Pros

    Very flexible hours, and helpful staff throughout every shift. Clean environment and overall clean establishment. Friendly people to work and engage with.

    Cons

    Managers are sometimes not helpful and some staff members haven't been fully trained. Sometimes customers cheat their way into getting free meals and there isn't anything the staff can do.

    Advice to Management

    Please start helping out fellow staff members and certain managers should fully stay until the restaurant is completely closed. Fix scheduling as well since some members have their shift end at 9 but end up leaving at 1030.
