Stressful

Nasty customers and co-workers weren't very willing to be cooperative. Customers always complained that the service was slow and took it out on the workers.

Almost all of us coworkers were friends making shifts so much fun working together

Overall a great work place. Although at times there was some dramas among coworkers we never let it affect our work. The managers are kind hearted and very understanding people and know how to group people together well for efficient work

Only work here if your desperate

Training only lasts 3 weeks and you only get 2-3 shifts a week with only 2-5hrs per shift. Unless your the managers favourite and then they give that person 5 shifts a week with 4-7hrs per shift. The Franchisee Owner for the area doesn't care and has hired too many people to be able to have the hours to learn the job properly. Management likes to play favourites with staff both new and old. Staff doesn't clean properly and the equipment Is so outdated it's hard to keep up with orders coz your always waiting for food to cook. Unrealistic time periods in which to complete tasks for new staff who have only just started. All in all I would not recommend working here if you have other options for employment. I would only work here if you are desperate and even then as soon as a new job became available then I would say would jump at the chance to leave.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

To many to list

Horrible managers, favouritism

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!

Pros

(Sometimes) free food, most coworkers were nice

Cons

Poor management, lazy and cruel managers

Actual job? Yeah, it's alright. Owner & their family? Yeah about that....

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.

The environment at chicken treat makes you feel unwelcome

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

Fun relaxed workplace

At chicken treat you are always greeted with a smile from all fellow coworkers. Managers are always understanding with given notice about time off/being late ect.

Horrible management!

My work mates and I were treated very poorly. Getting yelled at constantly for no reason. Im sure not all chicken treat places are like this it would have just been this particular one.

Productive but very boring

Although i have made some great friends at Chicken Treat, its good for a first job, but not a career. I've been there for 2.5 years and want to leave.

Fast paced and challenging workplace

(Cashiering) Typical day includes serving customers, packing orders and stocking fridge with drinks, cleaning toilets, benches as well as floors. I've learned a lot about how fast food places work and how fast paced they are which is probably the hardest part. The most enjoyable part of the job is probably the regular customers that come through because it brightens up my shift.

Not a great place to work

They only focus on hiring younger people to have on their staff so they can get underpaid and overworked. Worked more hours there than I do now and got paid a lot less

Worst environment

Stressful environment, rude manager, overworked, overwhelming, no breaks, unfriendly and unhelpful staff. Only highlight was the nice customers who told me it was ok to breathe.

chicken treat

was good place to work lovely staff nice location was fast working and i went as full time staff and left and manger but i would like another chance to do management again

Friendly workplace

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.

Pros

Free lunches/dinners

Cons

Nasty customers
