As a regular employee I prepared and served customers their frozen desserts. I also stocked and cleaned when necessary. As a shift manager, I perform all of the same duties as a regular employee while overseeing the shift. This means I am entrusted with the money, make any major decisions of the shift, and ensure that all tasks were carried out correctly.
