Pros: every once in a while i would be able to take home a pizza for my family.
Cons: it would be stressful at some times, and it was hot and hard work.
On the days I would work as a "crew" member I would prepare toppings, roll out and pan dough, apply sauce cheese and toppings, cook pizzas, land (cut and box) pizzas, all in a very fast paced and efficient manner. When I would work as a cashier I would take peoples orders, up sell, call out their order to the other crew members, get their order to them – more... within 30 sec., and when I was not helping customers I was working with the crew.
I learned how to be responsible and how to work quickly and efficiently. I also learned how to work with food and other employees.
My manager was great he was very understanding and helpful, he trained me to be the best employee I could possible be, that good training has stuck with me. Also he requested me to be a manager within the second month of working there, but because I was only 16 at the time I was unable to take the position.
The hardest part of the job was keeping up with orders when some of the other employees would slack off. I had to learn how to pick up other peoples slack and convince them to continue working.
The most enjoyable part was being able to earn money. I had expenses that needed to be paid and my parents couldn't do it so I was glad I could provide for myself to some extent. – less
