An ordinary day at this place of employment consisted of prep work with items needed for the day. Prep work included cutting vegetables, turning on equipment, cleaning the store, and getting any other needed items set up and ready in there designated area. The rest of the day was a simple matter of preparing customers orders and keeping everything stocked and ready to be used. A truck arrived weekly and employees were chosen to unload it. This job was fast paced and required much skill with all kitchen equipment: grills, fryers, window station, utensils and the washer. Freddy's Custard had a very laid back and inviting workforce but at the detriment of a solid management team. The job was only difficult on highly busy days, which can be guaranteed on the weekends. These days REQUIRED a learned type of work ethic that included an extreme pace without losing the quality of what was being prepared. This job was enjoyable because of the staff. The people who work for Freddy's are very friendly and easy to communicate with. Also, the job of a cook can be very enjoyable once you become well versed with your duties.
