kitchen Job at McDonalds… Not What it seems

I started working at Mcdonalds last November, and at first it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, I began working in the kitchen. I didn’t get any training, but pretty much thrown into an ocean of confusion. But it wasn’t hard so I caught on pretty quick.
