Pros: loving family atmosphere, always work to do, can usually get all the hours you wanted
Cons: pay was not great, long hard hours, physically demanding
A typical day at work is hard to describe because all kinds of things can happen. Your day would be very busy usually, especially during rushes like lunch, when school gets out and dinner. There is a lot of paperwork and counting that has to be done every hour. You have to help the crew get the orders out fast and if someone calls in then you have to work that position if you can't get someone to come in. A lot of cleaning, restocking, taking inventory and money to be handled, and you have to do all this while training crew members and making sure you don't go over labor. I learned so much in this job it would be impossible to explain. Usually I get along with everyone so I didn't have problems with my co-workers, we all got grouchy sometimes but we always loved each other, it really is like a big family. The hardest part was the physical and emotional stress. Managers had to work anywhere from 45 to 60 hours and we were always sore and tired. Trying to be a manager, councilor, take care of angry customers and get all your work done before its time to go home was a lot to do some days. The most enjoyable part is becoming so close to the other managers and crew, also getting to meet all kind of people.
