Cashier

October 2016 - November 2019 • Plantation, FL

What I liked

My coworkers were really good people. Chipotle prioritizes attitude for their hires and it shows. I never had any issue with any of them.

What I wish was different

I wish there were more people on the clock. It sometimes felt overwhelming dealing with all the customers.

Advice

It gives you a ton of customer service skills. I went from knowing absolutely nothing about customer service to being my managers' favorite cashier.

What I liked

What I wish was different

Very disorganized and gave me more hours than i wanted. Wasnt able to do much else this summer because of long closing shifts 5 days a week with very little time between schedule posting and first shift. Couldn't plan a thing.

Advice

Be very clear about how many hours you want to commit to.

Service Manager

October 2018 • Tampa, FL

What I liked

What I liked about this job was it was a way for me to maintain busy as I stayed in the Tampa area during the summer. It allowed for me to still have a responsible as I did not take any summer classes alongside this job. It was a great way to meet new people and take work relationships outside of the workplace and allowed me to gain long-term friends who I am extremely grateful for.

What I wish was different

I wish I worked a little less as oddly as that sounds. I began to stress a lot about my performance at work which then allowed me to get distracted from other things such as my family relationships and things I should've been focusing on for me to succeed in the upcoming school semester.

Advice

A piece of advise that I would give is to not let a summer job consume your life. If you allow it to become a focal point in your present state of circumstances it will soon begin to become overwhelming and a distraction rather than a benefit.
