Basically, I had my first day of training today at Maccas, and all that I’ve done so far was cook a basket of fries, failed at putting fries into the box (how is something so simple so hard), swept up some tables outside, and then took some orders after learning Macca’s surprisingly extensive menu.
I’ve yet to learn all the names of the people working there or, for that matter, the name of my manager. I really need to get on top of that.
To test me, my trainer Keith mock ordered a Large Big Mac meal but with the conditions of my title. Figuring out how to do all that under 25 seconds is, again, surprisingly hard. I expect to get faster soon. Counter stuff seems straight forward enough, you just have to get used to where the items are on the screen. It’s running around for the food which seems like a tough job, especially making the coffee/tea, and the soft serve, and the McFlurry stuff.
Next training shift on Thursday. Wish me luck!
P.S. Might put up a new category soon.
