Easy job for a high school student
Cashier/Maintenance crew member (Current Employee) – El Monte, CA – May 9, 2016
A typical day at work, as a cashier, at El Pollo Loco would be standing at the cash register, taking/giving out orders (basically nonstop, or until your break), recollecting the bathroom tokens, restocking and cleaning the salsa bar, cleaning the tables and picking up after messy families.
I learned that the management does its absolute best to follow all protocol and does a good job at keeping their employees busy.
My coworkers were like any other people, nosey but funny, respectful and extremely helpful.
Hardest part about the job would be dealing with rude customers, the customer is always right no matter what and your manager will make that CLEAR.
Most enjoyable part of the job is the sweet and appreciative customers that thank you and help you by picking up after themselves.
