WORK in fast food is not just fast-paced but fun for Mon­tana-Leigh Han­son.

The Carl’s Jr. crew mem­ber spends her shifts clean­ing, stock­ing and or­gan­is­ing the res­tau­rant, as well as tak­ing care of cus­tomers, which the com­pany prefers to see as “guests”.

“The guests are the team’s main pri­or­ity,” she says. “This means hav­ing speedy ser­vice, mak­ing sure the qual­ity of our food prod­ucts are at high stan­dards, en­sur­ing guests are com­fort­able in the res­tau­rant en­vi­ron­ment, and en­gag­ing in con­ver­sa­tions.

“We’re en­cour­aged to think of our store as a res­tau­rant so we do ta­ble ser­vice and en­deav­our to de­liver an ex­cel­lent dine-in ex­pe­ri­ence.”

Han­son says the crew and man­age­ment are very sup­port­ive and help­ful.

“I was look­ing for a job that could give me a dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ence and that could teach me new things,” she says.

Her ad­vice for other peo­ple want­ing a job in the take­away sec­tor is to be your­self, be re­spect­ful and smile a lot.

“Al­ways strive to be the best you, learn from mis­takes but most im­por­tantly al­ways have fun,” she says.
