I applied for this position over the summer and began when I came to Mt. Pleasant for school in 2008. Applebee's was a whole new breed of restaurant. The food needed to be prepared perfectly with very fast turnover times. I had to stock and date food with precision. This job has taught me advanced time management and organization. I can handle a loud kitchen with all sorts of food that I'm responsible for. It was an intense job that taught me a lot but I disliked the heavy corporate aspect of work because I felt like I was a machine not a human.
