Pros: free lunch, understanding supervisor, friendly customers
Cons: dead times (no customers)
Everyday was a new challenge despite it starting in a fast food restaurant. Though the mornings when I had to open started the same way, there was always the seniors that would stop by and make the morning a little bit brighter. Lunch time was usually a busy time but everything was taken care of in a quick, timely manner - by around 1-2PM it died down to one or two customers here and there. Which in return gave us ample time to clean up and restock from the rush. Being a part of management, the rest of the managers there were decent to work with. A couple of them had problems here and there but we all still got along pretty well. The crew members were always a source of (somewhat) entertainment and always willing to learn something new. I learned a lot of things that pertained to prep work for food, better time management, stock management, and more efficient cash handling. I also learned how to properly train new workers and hire. The hardest part of the job was towards the end before the store closed. We had a lot of problems with running out of stock and customers not appreciating it. Many understood, but many others did not. The most enjoyable parts of my job was working with the many different customers and the regulars, and learning all of the things that I did. Also, having a very understanding supervisor/owner was very nice too. If I had the chance to, I would work for her again.
