A typical day at work may involve pressing patties on a flat grill, dressing buns, or dropping frozen products in a deep fryer if your in back of house. If you happen to be up front your responsibilities may include taking customer orders in person at the counter or on a headset through the drive-thru, occasionally taking a call-in order over the phone, scooping custard for cones and sundaes, blending malts shakes and concrete mixers (which are like blizzards), or you may be put in charge of setting up orders on a tray, or running them out to customers at their tables or parked in the drive-thru, last you may have the duty of greeting guests at the door and keeping the dining area clean and stocked. I learned I'm very good at cooking burgers, and time management in a fast food setting. I also learned I'm very good at training new employees in. Management is very open to employees concerns and comments they have a very strong open door policy and unless you ask them to reveal who's complaining a very strict confidentiality policy. Co-workers are highly varied and really keep the day interesting. Overall they are very nice and most are very funny. Saying is you have to be a little off your rocker to work in fast food, but we enjoy ourselves. The hardest part of the job is keeping your energy going during the mid-afternoon lull, and occasionally you will get hammered with orders so hard that everything will kind of grind to a halt, but just remember fast food is so fluid that will quickly resolve itself and things will even out. The best part of the job is the usually fast pace – more... and variety. Even if you're on the same position two days in a row it won't have the same flow or same orders if you will as the previous day it's constantly changing. – less
