Working at a Travel Plaza
Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) – Cumberland, ME – July 2, 2016
A very busy place to work! Managing a crew of mostly High School students and people who for the most part this is their first job. That is the most difficult thing, as most of them have not learned a good work ethic yet, and don't often think through the tasks that they are given. I have learned that you have to be very, very explicit in your instructions, and will probably have to repeat them more than once, as they stopped listening about halfway through.
The work varies, as you have to be a combination of inventory control, cash control, cook, dishwasher, janitor, and cashier all rolled into one.
Free meals, company uniforms
Low pay, never having two days off in a row, very long hours, never having the same schedule two weeks in a row.
