Fast-paced, good enviroment on the surface, bad underneath.

A typical day at work consisted of clocking in and getting right to work. Like all places, you weren't allowed to stand still unless it was absolutely dead. I learned a lot about working with customers and other people, as well as standards a food place should hold themselves up to. However, management was always very detrimental about calling out. If you didn't have a reason to give your shift to someone, you weren't allowed to do it. If you called out, and nobody offered to cover you, that was on you as well, even if you were states away. Calling out while you were sick or injured, they required a doctors note (mind you, this is a part-time job, so no insurance to pay for these doctors visits), and still asked you to find someone to cover you.
