Cashier (Former Employee) – San Bruno, CA – 15 October 2013
The way a day went at Burger King really depended on the day and time. For example, if it was a weekend it would most likely be really busy since everyone was out shopping. Also around lunch time it would be busy as well. When it got busy you would need to move at a fast pace, but if there wasn't much going on the duties that I had were to keep everything at the front counter and dining room fully stocked. This included ketchup, napkins, straw, and so on. I learned how to deal with any mistakes that had been made, and I also learned to handle an upset customer as well as how to give customers a good experience while they were our guests. The management was actually very nice, they really looked out for your health and if you weren't feeling good they wouldn't make you work. All they asked for was that you let them know. If you needed a day off you would most likely get it with at least a week or two in advance. The co-workers were also very nice. Everyone was actually really easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job was probably working drive-thru. If it wasn't super busy only one person was in charge of taking orders, making drinks, putting the order together, and accepting payment. Although it was tough it helped me get better at multitasking.
