It's a Retail Food Service Job
Store Leader/Team Leader (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 2, 2016
You get involved with all aspects of the business. This includes but it not limited to: taking inventory of paper goods and product, placing orders, cleaning, handling money, payroll, recording profits, making budgets, setting goals for the business, creating and implementing selling techniques, overall maintenance of the establishment itself.
It can be tricky managing coworkers because you are usually on a team with one other person and casual conversation is easy to slip into. Also communication between shift leaders is imperative. If there is a flaw it can throw things off and customer service may be negatively impacted. When the business is short staffed, it places a lot of pressure on the remaining employees to work overtime and your personal life may suffer (ex. school). There is an opportunity to grow and learn in this environment ESPECIALLY if you are interested in running your own business.
