A "median" day is about 800 car washes. There is no typical or average; it may be as high as 1700+ or as low as 100. At the "exit end" segment of the car wash process, the service (two people to a car), is drying it off, wiping the doorjambs, the dashboard, center console, and any other areas that can be taken care of with a towel and multipurpose cleaner. At "entrance end," a line attendant will vacuum the inside of the car, and run floor mats through a machine, right before applying any air freshener the customer may have ordered.
The staff is large, and because of this it is important to learn how to work in small areas with people you mostly don't know very well. The hardest part of the job is a difficult car. Some cars do not respond well to our cleaning methods because of the type of residue or the age. It is hard to explain to a customer that despite ordering a car wash, it will still leave the store looking as bad as it did when it arrived. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you get to drive many different types of cars, some of which are expensive and exotic.
