Pros: free meals
Cons: fast food industry, irritable customers
This was my first ever job and I didn't work here long. I learned my first job skills here, including how to use a Point of Service machine, customer service, the fast pace of the fast food industry, and how to cook and prepare most of the food. I typically worked the overnight shift so a typical "day" at work started with me getting there at 10 pm and doing whatever job was needed when I got there. Then at midnight, we would close the lobby area and only the drive thru would be open. I would either be taking orders and doing money transactions for the drive thru, or putting the food in bags and delivering it to the customers at the end of the drive thru. I also learned how to make the food eventually and sometimes had to do that. When we transitioned from dinner to breakfast, I would often be the one who washed all the dishes in the dish pit. All of my managers were good people and decent managers and my co-workers and I got along pretty well most of the time. The hardest part of this job was probably just learning new things, although I got the hang of it after a while. The most enjoyable part was definitely being on the overnight shift, as we could be less conscious of what we did and said as long as there were no customers in the drive thru.
