I worked as a Department Manager at the Lincoln-Way McDonalds in Clinton, Iowa. I had this position for almost 2 years after transferring from another store. I was in charge of the hiring and training of new employees. I coordinated crew parties and incentives. I handled customer comments and complaints. I worked with many different businesses and schools in the community. I helped facilitate fundraisers that were done in the store. I also counted the drawers and the day's deposits. Other duties included crew birthdays, a special day of the month, and incentives, such as employee of the month. I enjoy people and am an outgoing, upbeat, dependable person.
