Team Leader/Manager in Training
Freebirds World Burrito
As a team leader, I was responsible for all of the things that happened in the front of the house (the register, the food line, the bathrooms, the lobby). I was basically just the manager when the manager was in the office or in the kitchen. I was an authority figure, but was still responsible for doing regular duties just like everyone else, such as, making sure the line, lobby and bathrooms were as clean as can be, and being on my toes for when the next customer walks through the door.
As a manager in training, I had the chance to take on a whole new set of authority than what being a Team Leader offered to me. I was the one to call most of the shots around the entire restaurant. I was in charge of keeping track of everything that was happening from the front doors to the kitchen to the back office. I ended up realizing what my responsibilities and priorities were, and ended up quitting before my promotion, to focus on my schoolwork.
