Pros: discounted food items
Cons: short shifts, late nights, almost always working alone
This job has taught me a lot about time management, multitasking and working efficiently and quickly. Often working alone, each employees has to perform all task on their own, from keeping the store from clean, restocking all food items, serving customers, ringing in their orders and making the transitions, to preparing food for the rest of the day to baking fresh bread and cookies. The hardest task is to keep calm, and collected and move in an orderly fashion when there are 12 people in line and you are working alone, have an empty bain of food and still need to bake bread. I have learned that you have to prioritize tasks and always think one step ahead so you do not fall behind incase there is an unexpected rush of people. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with regular customers, it makes mee feel like I'm doing a god job when I can memorize their regular orders and begin preparing them when they walk in. Though there isn't much room for advancement in this job i do enjoy working there and my co-workers are fun and caring.
