    They put me on the 'chicken side' for the first few weeks and learned how to make chicken burgers. Then I worked my way up the ladder eventually making proper meat burgers and learning the ropes until they put me on the till..then my brain started working, I got some sense and left. :laugh:

    What did you do?

    You will be put with a crew trainer who will stay with you - clock you in and out, takes their breaks with you, they will assuage your fears and build knowledge.

    How much were you paid?
    You will be paid minimum wage

    Did you enjoy it?
    Well next month I will have been there two years, make of that what you will..:rolleyes:

    Be calm and do not stress about it.

    I was put on the till with a lovely manager of mine (she was then a staff trainer). She clocked me in and out, showed me how to prepare (hairnets, handwashing etc) and she showed me how to use the till and built my confidence by making me gradually take orders and stuff when she got the food. She took her break with me too. It was scary but not too bad. Depending on who they're short of, they will either put you in the kitchen or on the tills, kitchens look okay. Unless your job description is to work on the dining area- if so you lucky thing, you get paid more and most of them seem to do less!

    I was put on chicken. Seven shifts later I threw up over my managers feet after pushing a tray of chicken selects onto someone's head. I quit and was never paid. Now I work at Debenhams and it's awesome. No vomit or anything.

    AJax- it's a strong cleaning fluid we use for cleaning some of the cabinets etc.

    Close on saturday, well I mean my shift is the closing shift, you're there until you shut and until after the doors are locked to customers to clean up etc.

    10:30 is just after breakfast, it's quite quiet sometimes for a while unless there have been a lot of people craving burgers but then breakfast is still being served, then gets progressively busier as people go for lunch.
