there is a certain rhythm to a standard day. There are peak times and lulls, and once you find the rhythm, it is easy to keep going. The people they hire are always the nicest people. It makes it very easy to get up for work and go in.

The people are but I would say the managers are a bit much. The morning starts at 5.30am, I had to do a lot of stuff by myself so there was a lack of staff. Often did overtime which I did not get paid.
The company seems to not even hire enough people so 1 person would have to do everything.

5 days a week I would prepare and make food to sell at EAT, then I would work upstairs selling the products and attracting customers to come in. Had to be quick with math and adding as I would deal with up to 300 people a day. This though did make time go quicker.

The workplace is friendly the job is easy. You learn to carry out every task very fast. At the same time there is no respect for workers . The company forget that they all make their money from its people. Management is bad . Overall doesn't worth it .

A morning shift will be typically sorting out deliveries and preparing goods for the day's different meals. Serving customers in between preparing foods for breakfast and lunch. I've learnt lots of health and safety regulations, money handling , handling food and allergens information. The management is good or bad depending on who runs the shop. My personal experience was mixed because in my shop you were not let to complete given task before you had to do something else. The most enjoyable part of the job was actually when it was time to leave !

Working at EAT, involves a lot off energy, speed and patience. Dealing with different types of individuals, complains, happy customers and a lot of pressure. The hardest part of the job is cleaning, but I don't mind to do it.

Somehow they brainwash you and all you think about is EAT. Your hair always smells like food and you will work way too hard for minimum wage. Discount is okay but you will get sick of that food very soon.
