Inside Advice For Working Drive-Thru

Inside Advice For Working Drive-Thru

They shouldn't be that stressful.

I'm sure we can all agree, whether you've worked in one or not, that working in a drive-thru is hard. From the moment you hear the headset go off to the moment that car drives off can be chaotic and stressful. It's stressful enough without someone in the drive-thru forgetting how a drive-thru works. I just started a new job working in a drive-thru, and I have come across a lot of people who seem to forget how a drive-thru works.

Know your order. In order for the drive-thru to run smoothly, you have to know what you want in advanced. I can't play twenty questions with you over the speaker when I have people to serve inside as well. Even if you don't quite know, you should be able to make a quick decision. If you really can't decide on what you want, you should just come into the building so the drive-thru can keep moving

Use the speaker to place your order so I can have it ready for you when you pull up. I'm not sure if some people are just in too much of a rush or what, but in order for me to know you are there, you have to place your order in the speaker attached to the giant menu before the window. If you pull up to the window before ordering I will have no idea you are there and you will be waiting a while before I see you.

Keep your order small. You shouldn't be ordering everything off the menu in the drive-thru. The drive-thru is supposed to be for quick, on the go ordering. If it takes me 20 minutes to make your order because you ordered 5 different coffees all made specific ways, I'm going to be running around like a chicken with its head cut off. It also slows down the drive-thru, which makes everyone behind you mad. I know I'm never happy when I go through a drive-thru and it takes forever for me to get up to the window. Come in and order, it will be easier for everyone.

Pull close to the window. I understand driving up to a window can be a little tricky, but you shouldn’t be so far away that I have to physically come out of the window to give you what you ordered. If I have to stretch, fine, but my whole body needs to stay in the window. I promise I won’t bite you.

Speak up. Listening to someone talk to a speaker can be difficult, but it's even harder to hear you if you don't speak up. If I ask you to repeat yourself, make sure you speak a little bit louder. Also, make sure you don't speak too fast, I am trying to write down what you are saying and I can't get your order right if you talk a mile a minute. Face the speaker, and speak clearly. I know, personally, I get nervous ordering in a drive-thru. Take a deep breath, and focus on what you are saying.

A New View Can Mean Better Work

Change can be so good.

Sometimes you have to have a new perspective in order to do something.

This happens to me all the time when it comes to schoolwork and writing. It is hard for me sometimes because I am an all-online student. This means that I do not go to a classroom. I sit in my spare bedroom, which I call my office. I sit at the same desk every day. The only perk is no one takes my "unassigned assigned" seat. But it can also get a little boring at times.

It is hard sometimes to have perspective on things or be able to be creative when you are sitting in the same place every day to do school. Change can be such a good thing.

My place to find a new perspective and get my creativity back is the local Starbucks. Usually, in the afternoons, it is pretty quiet and chill. This means I can come to get coffee, read my schoolwork, and study. Unlike my office, it is a totally new different view, even if I sit in the same three spots. Sometimes I get some conversation, other times, no one talks to me. I’m okay with either.

My mom was the one who actually gave me the idea to go out since I was getting tired of sitting at home, and when it got cold, I couldn't sit poolside. I’m glad she said something, and I am even more glad that I listened to her.

I do not have the chances to go to places that most students would go. I do not have a school library that I can sit in the back corner and just hammer down on work. I do not have empty classrooms either. So, this means I have to get creative sometimes. I have tried to go to different food places but sometimes I cannot even hear myself think.

So, whenever I want or need to go out, I always find myself in the middle of Kansas State’s campus at the Starbucks. I usually tend to have something Ohio University on so I get some interesting looks. I once had a girl ask me if I realized I was in Kansas not Ohio. Of course, that is a major flip from the Wizard of Oz questions I normally get. Sometimes I cannot hold my sarcasm, but most times I give them the friendly reminder that Fort Riley is right up the road and that is why I’m no longer in Ohio.

Either way, most of my credit for my articles and most of my school work goes to Starbucks and their always fast WiFi. While this does not help my coffee addiction at all, it gives me some great work. So here is to another semester spent at Starbucks, and my coffee budget being fully reinstated!

And a huge sorry to my husband, I’m gonna be smelling like coffee at least once a week, I love you!
