I am still currently employed at godfathers in spencer iowa but i currently live here and i try to go two weekends a month to go and visit family and work however with the coronavirus i really dont want to risk going there. and i know i dont have a lot of physical strength and things up high are difficult for me. but i can always try and see how it goes. anything else we could discuss in person.I am great full for how willing the other employees are to help assist me so that I'm able to do the work i need to. which is why i think i always stay employed there, i feel confident in what i do and i feel like do a decent job at it, at godfathers pizza.
I am greatfull that Hardees gave me the opportunity to work there, even though i struggled with doing some things such as making shakes, some of the other employees would help me. Even I am not fast with my hands they still gave me the opportunity and showed me how to bag up peoples orders and if it was just too much for me, all i had to do was ask for help and others would help me.
I left Hardees because they wanted to up my rent alot and there was another reason, that I'd rather discuss in person.
At McDonald's they allowed me to do things at my pace yet still get in done in a timely manner. they also allowed me to do things i'm able to with my strength limitations. at mcdonalds those employees were also willing to help me, when i was unable to do something. I left there because my daughter was struggling with some things and she was in and out of a few hospitals and i needed to be with her. yes they offered a leave of absence until i was ready to go back. however it made me feel uncomfortable with the way certain employees changed the way they interacted with me. once they had heard what was going on with my daughter. so i left.
At the dollar general i basically just checked people out.
I have experience in taking food orders.
I have experience in cashing people out when they buy items.
I have lots of experience making and cutting pizzas and also delivering pizza, and also taking care of dishes.
