    I worked at Swiss Chalet part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fun work environment, reasonable pay, easy to book time off and good scheduling.

    Cons

    No appropriate harassment policies, no recognition of hard work, lack of communication.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize employees who have devoted their time to you and help them succeed. Also recognize when employees come to you with concerns about workplace harassment, and legitimatize their concerns, instead of ignoring all of the problems.

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

    Pros

    No very late nights, and a relatively fun work environment

    Cons

    Only 3 hour shifts at max. to avoid giving us paid breaks, so we had to work 7 days a week to make any decent amount of money. Some days you had 2 separate 3 hour shifts, again to avoid paying us for breaks, but get the most work possible.
