Honestly, don’t work here. At first the job was amazing - certain supervisors gave you free food and drinks, the colleagues were amazing and the work wasn’t too bad. The store manager was a horrible bully who would threaten staff, get in your face, and humiliate you in front of customers for the smallest of things. The store managers family would get all the shifts, sometimes 15 hours a week when other workers would merely get 3. Hats were shared, I worked there for months and never received a uniform yet the manager gave other workers a second uniform. The store didn’t follow WHS or OHS requirements, and the manager and her daughter were just plain bullies. Me and my previous coworker at this job both quit and found a much better job at a different company. You would work 5.5 hour shifts without a break which is actually illegal - you are required to have a 30m break for every 5 hours of work. Trust me, find another job!
(Sometimes) free food, most coworkers were nice
Poor management, lazy and cruel managers
Picture a 14 year old kid, first job, excited to start earning money. Rough start with only 3 shifts training but it's alright, it's not particularly the most hardest job out there. Basically you gotta serve customers (take orders and pack 'em), clean, make boxes for food, and help restock/rotate stock. Before/After the shift you count the money in your till. You'll have you and a manager morning shift, and two people and manager night shift. Pretty much all staff were great. People got along, well enough anyway. Most staff you'd only see during shift change overs. What wasn't fun was when you were forced to work with the owner's kid, or had the unpleasant experience of meeting the owner themselves. Adult child had the position of 'Store Manager' except they didn't really do much management themselves, was sitting on their phone most of the time and then bossed other people around to do their job. Made the simple act of having a bathroom break during a quiet period seem like were gonna go smoke outside for two hours. Would randomly cancel shifts if they were working with you and didn't like you. Store owner themselves had a superiority complex and doesn't understand priorities. Would make you restock the freezer that instant even if there was a customer waiting to be served. If you didn't, you'd be screamed at. But yeah, otherwise easy job. Phones got locked up, had to pay for a drink. Got called up 2 months after I applied and got hired on the spot, didn't get an uniform for 2 months and had to share hats. uhhh good thing? free food yeah that's it.
I find that when I work at chicken treat the staff members can be nasty and you feel like you have to compete with other staff in order for you to keep shifts
I learnt about customer service, money handling, restock of products and simple food prep. My most important skill learnt would be my ability to multitask, I am extremely efficient and thorough with my work and I am able to do more than one thing at once due to the number of tasks I had to do daily.
chicken treat is very eh. it's standard fast food but my experience was very up and down. they definitely prefer younger workers over the quality of work, so once you hit 18 your hours get cut right down, but if you're under 18 the hours are usually pretty good, especially if you aren't restricted by school or sports. the customers were probably the worst part of the job, very impatient and rude and sometimes threatening. long story short if you're a teenager looking for a first job it's alright, but but please only use it as a stepping stone until you find a better job because once you're stuck there it sucks
great pay rates, coworkers became best friends, food discounts
don't really care how good a worker you are, bosses can be very cheap, sometimes unsanitary and unsafe, customers are horrible
there was never really a typical day at work everyday was different besides the obvious tasks to do. I learned a lot more skills with working with different personalities. had nice friendly management. culture was good. hardest part was having to explain there was no chicken considering its a chicken store due to not knowing the reaction of the customer. most enjoyable part was interacting with customers and also building a friendship with co-workers which made everyday a good day.
Good food - great staff - great being a small business owner but still you have to answer to someone above no matter what. Menu needs more variety & to be more competitive in the Fast Food Industry to be successful. Need to regulate opening closing times.Sales Marketing People need to work in stores to have productive ideas & not throw all ideas together & make matters more stressful.
Tasty food - challenging - great staff
stressfull - non profitable - hard work
Customers are quite nice. Staff and management however are rather unkind. They don't often care about others feelings and will often gossip about all staff behind their backs. Was not a great environment to work in. There were some kind staff members though. You could definitely get along with them.
Cheaper food items
