The stressful experience of working early morning shifts, dealing with impatient customers, and being unable to find success at my McDonald's job in Port Moody was a challenge that I had to overcome. It was hard adapting to my first job. I felt helpless when customers would yell at me with profanities, throw hot coffees at me and criticize me loudly for my poor work in the kitchen and customer service. I take pride in my work, and these failures drove me to eagerly improve my skills. In the following months, I perceived the way experienced employees worked and noted small details upon it. Throughout these months I learned to maintain my values while protecting the company's reputation. I overcame my fear of dealing with rude customers by remaining calm and notifying the manager. Most importantly, I learned to balance my schedule so I can work early morning shifts and still exceed in school. The power of initiating in bettering myself reflected as my confidence and skill improved at work. As a result of my initiative, I found further success as an employee and a student.
