Hi Tara,

It's nice to hear from you. 

My first job was working in a large fast-food restaurant. Before that, I had worked cutting grass and doing odd jobs, but this was my first real job with a schedule and a boss. I learned how to make the hamburgers and French fries, then I was trained on how to clean the restaurant, filter the oil in the fryers, and finally work out front at the cash register and the drive-thru.

The hours were late, often for me from 6 pm to 2 am, but I met a lot of nice people and learned how to work. Sometimes there was a rush and we could not stop for hours at a time, and sometimes it was almost empty and we could start cleaning early so we could go home early.

A lot of people say bad things about working in a fast food restaurant, but at 17, 18 or 19 years old I think it is a good introduction to the working world.

Hope you are doing well!
