What are some good ideas to make a fast food restaurant a fun place to work?
Hi I'm a restaurant manager and my crew is mainly high school students and some LEGAL immigrants.I always thank them for specific things they do well, try to help them when they are buried in work and try to listen and address any concerns they have.But unfortunately, I do not handle the schedule and have no control over how many workers I can have on a shift and it gets very hectic at times.
