I'm new to this forum and this is my first post, any help would be greatly appreciated! Please give comments on how you think of my short answer? I need some help with shortening it because I'm exceeding the maxium of 1000 characters by 118characters. Thanks!

short answer prompt: Please briefly elaborate on one of your extracurricular activities or work experiences in the space below (1000 character maximum).

"Here's your Mama Burger with Cheese and no pickles. Have a nice day!" A girl in yellow uniform and brown trousers hands over a takeout bag to another girl across the counter and smiles.

From the 50's music to the aroma of fresh onion rings that filled the dining room, A&W Restaurant had become part of my weekly routine for the past two years. My work experience as a cashier at A&W helped me to develop and grow tremendously. My first day as a cashier was nothing like what I anticipated. It involved not only time-management, communication skills but also required patience, manner, and teamwork. However, instead of intimidated by the amount of work, I took it as a new challenge. Soon enough, I began to find satisfaction in helping people and putting up smiles on their faces. I felt great to be recognized by customers and managers for my hard work and great service, but at the same time I look for ways to improve and learn from my experiences. Working at A&W is more than just a part time job, it provided me the chance to give back to my community and shaped me into a more mature and responsible person.

not only time-management, communication skills but also required- not only time management and/plus communication skills but also...

same time I look for- same time i looked for...

Your essay is very good and easy to understand. Just some minor grammar mistakes, thats all.

Best of luck
