Pros: half price lunch, hour long breaks
Cons: very busy days, stressful, long periods of down time, short shifts
A typical day at Jason's Deli started at 10 am and normally lasted till 3 or 4 pm. At around noon, we would start to get very busy most days, usually with a line to the door. It was set up so that customers walked up to the counter, placed their order which had to be written on a ticket, and then I would pass the ticket down the line and yell "Order in!" and the people on the line would look at the ticket and begin making any and all food that was ordered. The customer would then walk down the aisle parallel to the line until they got to the register. After about 7 minutes, the food would be ready and someone would have to run the food out to the customer. There was also bussing of tables that needed to be done when customers left or were done with their food. The hardest part of this job was being required to switch between any of these positions at any given time for any reason as fast as possible. I definitely learned some higher level multitasking and also how to transition between different duties very quickly. Management was wonderful and always liked having me around. My co-workers were usually fine although there were some isolated incidents with certain people. The most enjoyable part of this job would definitely be the challenge of learning new things and trying to become proficient in them.
