A typical day starts at 530 am. I would walk in, count down my drawers. make the appropriate drops, then proceed to get on the floor. This included putting on a headset and joining the one to two people I had on the floor. I had to answer the headset to take orders, cash people out, make drinks, grab pastries, make sandwiches, and set my people up in their positions. Through all of this I had to make sure all my drawers always had enough change, if there were any issues I had to take care of them. I also had to keep up on cleaning and stocking things as they were being used. By 2pm I had to shift change and recount my drawers and making the money drops. Some days 2pm would be the end of my shift and some days it would be 330pm.
I was constantly moving and always had something to do
