Shift Manager

Columbus, Ohio
-My duties at McDonald's as a shift manager include opening the store. I setup the daily schedule assigning the crew members to their jobs that shift. I am responsible for the operations of the store during my shift. I am also responsible for changing cash drawers, counting the cash drawers down, making a daily deposit, entering those figures in the computer, and taking the deposit to the bank. I am also active in new employee training and orientation. I also work with the crew throughout the day, doing some of the same tasks they do. I feel that it is important to work with the crew because I am leading and teaching by example. I believe that it motivates the crew members, when their manager is doing jobs similar to what they are doing.

I was also responsible for designing and creating annual containers for retail and setting up in store displays with the houseplants and hanging baskets.
