A typical day for me at Carl's Jr. would consist of me coming in as the closing manager, getting through the dinner rush, and then having to close down the store. I learned how to become a hard worker and how to always be a near perfectionist on leaving a nice and clean store for the morning manager to come in the next day. Management was okay, I got along with my manager but when things got busy, she became very impatient with many of the workers. It taught me how to keep my patience and not to become aggressive when the lead time at our job is going at a much slower pace. The culture could be very hostile at times, especially for people that had worked there for a long period of time against those that were hired on as part time workers. The hardest part of the job was to manage all the personalities and egos carried by some of the workers. The most enjoyable part of the job was when the restaurant was not busy and everyone had down time, people were very fun to get along with.
