Shift Leader

April 2018 • Stow, OH

What I liked

Being able to get the hours that I wanted, pay is pretty decent, the job itself is pretty easy and the customers are great majority of the time.

What I wish was different

It would have been much better had I worked with people who actually cared even a little bit about their job and who wouldn't call off unnecessarily and quit because they can't handle an easy job.

Advice

Expect the unexpected, never get comfortable because it's always changing,check prepared to work with people who just don't care.

Ice Cream Server

May - October 2019 • Lincoln Park, MI

What I liked

The comradery was the best part of the job. All of the girls there were mostly in high school and their opinions helped me shape how I would start teaching during the fall. Also, I enjoyed speaking with customers and helping with anything that makes the day more productive and safe.

What I wish was different

Personally, I wish that there was a manager there at all times instead of having senior crew (closers) to be in charge of the day to day operations at night since the only manager worked until 5 pm at the latest. There were several things that could have been avoided and reported earlier that would have made the place more communicative and honest.

Advice

Pay attention to who is working on what part of the order. The area is small and busy so you can easily get lost in what you're doing unless the entire crew is working together.

Laborer

February 2017 - July 2019 • Steubenville, OH

What I liked

I liked working with other college students who went to different schools because they talked to me about their experience being in college.

What I wish was different

I wish the management was a little different. There was a lot of favoritism while I worked there.

Advice

I would say that it’s only a job that you’re most likely not gonna keep forever. You don’t need to stress it.
